Hunk Alert: Douglas 8th Duke of Hamilton

SWM, Duke, Scotsman, looking for an attractive young lady
Likes: Travel, girls, horses, fashion

You can consider me your average entitled man of the age. I like my clothes fabulous, my horses fast, and my women faster. Obviously I am funny too. When I am finished traveling the world with my companion Dr. John Moore I would like to settle down with a woman who can keep up with me.

A sturdy and beautiful woman who shares a love of horses is who I am looking for. Warning: must be mother-approved.


  1. mmph.. If I was a female.. ;)
    he sounds like a true playboy, but who can resist a guy with a nice horse :) And that tight fitting vest. Yummy

  2. Ain't that always the way? Well at least there's always William Beckford!

  3. ahh, William Beckford is a cutie too. I never saw your Hunk alert for him before, so thanks for that. We seriously need to find some more 18th century GWM. I mean, the Mollys had to be full of them! hehehe

  4. thanx for this great post. i always enjoy your hunks very much.
    then i became intrigued with the genealogy of the hamiltons and browsed the peerage like mad. finally i stopped at lady charlotte campbell bury and now i am off to the library getting her works, especially the 'lady of fashion' and the 'diary of the times of George IV'


  5. He's actually quite handsome. I wonder if the current Duke of Hamilton and Brandon looks that good.

  6. I love your site sooooooo much I have learned so much more about history aka more than in school, so I just wanted to let you know you have the best one out there :)

    P.S. since you love the 1700's so much if you ever need images of clothing from the 1700's I have i think about a thousand maybe more that i have gotten over the years from either books or web sites, but if you do i'll email you my photobucket info, so you can enjoy them to, I figure thats the least i can do as you have brought me so much knowledge and joy with this awesome site :) Thanks again :)

  7. See, if I'd seen this before reading The Sylph , I'd've fallen for him...but Lady Julia's cold rake of a husband has wised me up! Still a hunk, though!

  8. Fills out the vest AND breeches exceeding well. What a manly buck and I love the cut of the outfit, too.

  9. @Emmeline, there's just so many of those Hamiltons it's a daunting task to keep track of them all!

    @Wilhelmina, Thank you very much! You just made my day. If you don't mind sharing your pictures I would be more than happy to enjoy the spoils of them!

    @Jessi, So Georgiana's message has already been heard loud and clear even in the beginning of the book!

    @EKM @Paul, I haven't found a portrait of him I didn't like yet!

  10. Ok Heather here are the links I have 2 photobuckt account as I have a love for antique fashion, my first one i filled up so I had to open another but here are the links, if you have any problems let me know.


    Now the next link is a mix of fashions but i have some 1700's clothing in it, the reason its a mix is i thought i was only going to have a little bit of fashion uploaded well my little bit became thousands of images,so by 06 i got organized



    Thats the last of the not organized albums.


    This one i m always adding stuff to,so check it month from month, and if you want to use any of the images go ahead :) I m all about spreading the joy of lovely antique fashion,and the 1700's was just a great time for it :)

    P.S. Let me know if it helped you,and hope you like them all :)

  11. Oh looks like the last link did not post, so here it is.


  12. I'll take him on, hubba hubba!
