Portrait of Robert Hamilton, 1750-1809 [JRR1306]
“Hamilton undoubtedly was the chief land speculator in early Upper Canada. The total known amount of land in which he held an interest by purchase, grant, or mortgage was 130,170 acres. If contiguous, his lands would have stretched one township deep from the Niagara River almost to Burlington Bay (Hamilton Harbour).”— from the Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online
