A Hamilton family household of at least 10 members residing in the district of Colchester was recorded in 1901. The head of household, Peter S Hamilton, was born in Nova Scotia in 1852.

Isabella was born in Nova Scotia in 1861. She identified her heritage as Scotch. Peter and Isabella had 8 children, 3 boys and 5 girls. In 1878 their eldest child, a boy named George, was born. Two years later, in 1880, when Peter was 28 years old and Isabella was 19 years old their second child, this time a daughter, who was named Mary, was born. Then, in 1883, with their two children ages 5 years and 3 years, their third child, Alexander, was born. In 1901 another daughter, their fourth child and second girl, Melvina, was born.
