At Strabane a monument within the parish church, commemorates a man who played an important role in the government of the early town.  This was William Hamilton who died in 1640 and whose memorial records that he was ‘sometyme provost of Strabane,’ and also mentions that he bequeathed to the poor in the town a yearly sum to help them in their need.  This man was also a merchant in Strabane who received a fee-farm from the Earl of Abercorn and had a stone house on his lands by 1622.
