Other names for Elizabeth were HAMILTON, Elizh and HAMILTOUN, Beatrix.
The name of the mother of Anna Strauchan is noted in the baptismal record as Beatrix Hamiltoun. All the other records of the baptisms of her children in Canongate parish note the mother's name as Elizabeth Hamilton. It may be that something approximating to "Beattie" was what she was called.
Elizabeth married Captain John STRAUCHAN, son of Reverend Mr John STRACHAN Minister at Oyne and Jean STRACHAN, on 2 September 1675 in South Leith Parish, Midlothian, Scotland. (Captain John STRAUCHAN was baptised on 18 November 1651 in Saint Nicholas Parish, Aberdeen, Scotland.)
