MISS JEAN HAMILTON OF SUNDRUM'S STRATHSPEY. Scottish, Strathspey (whole time). Composed by Hugh Montgomerie, 12th Earl of Eglinton, printed in his New Strathspey Reels for the Piano Forte, Violin and Violoncello (1796, p. 1). The Hamiltons of Sundrum were related to Hugh through his sister Lilias, who married John Hamilton of Sundrum in 1762 and parented some thirteen children. Poet Robert Burns referred to the family in verse, "I spy'd among an angel band."
