Why Alexander Hamilton was picked to be the first US Treasury director!
By Gary Gianotti

Wish all is well with you, I had an interesting thing happen. Had been thinking about our conversation on your show, regarding the founding of the US Treasury. We spoke about Lord Hume, who was the person the founders based the banking philosophy after his work. Franklin was very close to Lord Hume and spent the best days of his life with him for a few weeks in Scotland.

You will love this connection, mind blowing! The recovered death will of Robert Scots secret grandfather, George#2 addresses that George#3(Roberts Dad) has his paid education with one of his overseers or close friends. Lord Hume was his teacher and Hume was Roberts teacher in philosophy also at Edinburgh University(documented at collage archives).

Here is the amazing connection, documented! Alexander Hamilton based the banking economics philosophy after Lord Hume's work, this is documented as fact! What I will tell you now, will change the story of how and why Alexander Hamilton was chosen to be the first director of the US Treasury! 

The famous line of Royals, the title Duke of Hamilton was made in Lord of the Treasury in the 1660's when Robert Scot's gr-great grandfather Sir John Scot of Scotstarvit was head of Chancery and Privy. Hamilton was on the Kings Privy also as you see the document below!  What a great connection, because our founding father, Alexander Hamilton was a bastard son of this direct male line and abandoned by his father in the West Indies. Here we find the simple documented connection and it gets better!

The Hamilton title line is given to the famous Royal, William Douglas who married Lady Anne Hamilton. The true Hamilton line goes extinct, William Douglas takes the title of Hamilton! Just like the bastard Stuart Kings Son James who took the Scott/Buccleuch titles by him being married to Sir John Scots cousins niece(John Was overseer of her wealth/education-Scotstarvit John)Robert Scots gr-great grandfather. Male line goes extinct like ancient Lords of Hamilton.

Again, why was our US Founding father Alexander Hamilton chosen as the first US Treasury director? We know that Alexanders great grandfather to William Douglas was the Lord of the Royal Treasury, but that's not the real reason! The REAL reason is that the ancient Douglas line did the same thing with the title name change. Where its fully documented that the DOUGLAS LINE changed their name(Documents below)! The Douglas male line is 1000% FLEMING, Robert Scot the seal engravers direct family goes back to Michael Le Fleming. Michael le Fleming's, one of his sons is Anselm who produced Richard Scott(Father of the Scott Lines)Michael had other sons and other sources say he is the father of the DOUGLAS LINE and ONLY THESE FLEMINGS ARE LINKED TO KELSO ABBEY, PERIOD! THE UNITED STATES FOUNDING FATHER ALEXANDER HAMILTON IS A BLOOD COUSIN TO ROBERT SCOT OUR SEAL ENGRAVER. Now we know why William Douglas was seated with the Privy(With Sir John Scot) and Lord of the Treasury. Explaining why Alexander was chosen to be the first Director of the United States Treasury, he was a direct male bloodline to Robert Scot that goes back Kelso Abbey, where Douglas is documented as Fleming to that Abbey with his cousin Anselm Le Fleming(Or Brother) and Agnes of Dunbars who produced the first person to use the name Scott in all of Scottish history.

Whats interesting is that this is fully documented, except that some references say the Fleming is Thedold, wiki says they are males also linked to Clan Murray who are from the Fleming line also! We have a dead ringer that is fully documented going back with these families to Kelso Abbey, sons of Michael le Fleming, the champion knight of William the Conqueror!

Fred Fleming the scholar will back this up and so will the historian of Clan Douglas in Texas!

Kind Regards,

Gary Gianotti

XIV. Lady ANNE HAMILTON, eldest daughter of James first duke of Hamilton, the undoubted heir of line of the family, and now dutchess of Hamilton, married William Douglas earl of Selkirk, eldest son of Willi∣am marquis of Douglas, by his second wife lady Mary Gordon, daughter of George mar∣quis of Huntly; in consequence of which marriage, upon a petition from the dutchess, he was created duke of Hamilton for life, with all the titles, dignities, and precedency belonging to the family, which appears by the diploma,*Willielmi ducis de Hamilton, mar∣chionis Clydsdale, comitis Arraniae, Lanarc•ae et Selkirk, domini Acon, Machanshire, et Daer, &c. dated 12th October 1660.

He was soon thereafter made one of the privy council, and knight of the most noble order of the garter.

Upon king James VII.'s accession to the crown, he was made a LORD OF THE TREASURY, an extraordinary lord of session, and a privy councillor for both kingdoms, in which office he continued all king James's reign.

When the prince of Orange came over to England, he was chosen, by divers Scotch no∣bility and gentry then in London, to be their president, when they addressed that prince to take upon him the administration of all affairs, civil and military, and was also chosen presi∣dent of the convention of estates, who de∣clared the crown vacant, and settled it on that prince.

After he was crowned king, the duke was appointed president of the council, one of the extraordinary lords of session, and lord high admiral of Scotland.

By said lady Anne dutchess of Hamilton he left issue seven sons, and three daughters.

"Hamilton's father, James Hamilton, was of noble lineage. He was the fourth son of a Scottish laird, descended from a ducal line, who had married the daughter of an "ancient Baronet," Sir Robert Pollock. Such a bloodline, as Hamilton remarked late in life, gave him "better pretensions than most of those who in this Country plume themselves on Ancestry."

Ron Chernow's 2004 Alexander Hamilton similarly states

(US Alex line) Hamilton's other star-crossed parent, James Hamilton, had also been bedeviled by misfortune in the islands. Born around 1718, he was the fourth of eleven children (nine sons, two daughters) of Alexander Hamilton, the laird of Grange in Stevenston Parish in Ayrshire, Scotland, southwest of Glasgow. In 1711, that Alexander Hamilton, the fourteenth laird in the so-called Cambuskeith line of Hamiltons, married Elizabeth Pollock, the daughter of a baronet. As Alexander must have heard ad nauseam in his boyhood, the Cambuskeith Hamiltons possessed a coat of arms and for centuries had owned a castle near Kilmarnock named the Grange. Indeed, that lineage can be traced back to teh fourteenth century in impeccable genealogical tables, and he boasted in later years that he was the scion of a blue-ribbon Scottish family: "The truth is that, on the question who my parents were, I have better pretensions than most of those who in this country plume themselves on ancestry."

1. James, earl of Arran.

2. Lord William, who died in France without issue.

3. Charles, earl of Selkirk.

4. John, earl of Ruglen.

5. George, earl of Orkney.

6. Lord Basil, who married Mary, daugh∣ter and sole heiress of sir David Dunhar of Baldoon, Bart. and was grandfather of Dun∣bar, now earl of Selkirk.

7. Lord Archibald, who was appointed go∣vernor of Jamaica by queen Anne, was a flag-officer in the navy, and governor of Green∣wich hospital. He married lady Jane Ha∣milton, daughter of James earl of Abercorn, and had issue two sons.

The duke's 1st daughter, lady Catharine, married to John duke of Athole.

2. Lady Susanna, married, 1st, to John earl of Dundonald; and, 2dly, to Charles marquis of Tweeddale.

3. Lady Margaret, married to James earl of Panmure.

And dying anno 1694, was succeeded by his eldest son,

XV. JAMES, fourth duke of Hamilton, in his father's lifetime designed earl of Arran, was born 11th April 1658, had a noble and liberal education suitable to his high birth and quality.

Upon his return from his travels, he was particularly distinguished by king Charles II.* and was made one of the gentlemen of his bed∣chamber, anno 1679, and was sent ambassador extraordinary to the court of France, 1683.

When king James VII. succeeded to the crown, he was made master of the wardrobe, knight of the thistle, and colonel of the royal regiment of horse.

He was steady in the interest of that un∣fortunate prince, and never left him till he embarked for France, 23d December 1688, and was always suspected of retaining a warm affection to him, even when the revolution had altered the system of government, and directed the subjects allegiance to a new king; which plainly appears from the speech he made in the beginning of 1689, when the prince of Orange asked the opinion of the Scotch.


According to tradition, the Douglases took their name from the Gaelic or Cumbric language placename "Dubh glas/Ddu glas" meaning "black-blue/green", in reference to the colour of the river that ran through the territory.[citation needed] In fact, the family's surname is derived from the Gaelic elements dubh, meaning "dark, black"; and glas, meaning "stream" (in turn from Old Gaelic dub and glais).[6] One old tradition is that the first chief of Douglas was Sholto Douglas who helped the king of Scotland win a battle in the year 767. This is unsubstantiated.[4][7]

The true progenitor of Clan Douglas was probably "Theobaldus Flammatius" (Theobald the Flemming), who received in 1147 the lands near Douglas Water in Lanarkshire in return for services for the Abbot of Kelso.[4][7] The first certain record of the name Douglas is that of William de Dufglas who witnessed a charter between 1175 and 1199 by the Bishop of Glasgow to the monks of Kelso.[3]

Although the Douglases were first recorded in the 1170s, the Douglas family names consisted of Arkenbald and Freskin, and were undoubtedly related to the Clan Murray, and to be of Flemish origin. The Clan Murray were descended from a Flemish knight called Freskin.[8] Though the Flemish origin of the Douglases is not undisputed, it is often claimed that the Douglases were descended from a Flemish knight who was granted lands on the Douglas Water by the Abbot of Kelso, who held the barony and lordship of Holydean. However this is disputed, it has been claimed that the lands which were granted to this knight were not the lands which the Douglas family came from.[7][9]

In 1179 William Douglas was Lord of Douglas and it seems likely that he was Theobald the Flemming's son and the first to take the surname Douglas.[4][7] Sir William de Douglas had two sons who fought at the Battle of Largs in 1263 against the Norsemen.[3]
