William D. Hamilton had more success as a cricketer than he did as a lawn tennis player, although he played the latter sport competitively for several years in the mid-1880s. Several of his siblings were also gifted sportsmen, including Willoughby Hamilton, who won the men’s singles title at Wimbledon in 1890, and Blayney Hamilton. William D. Hamilton attended Oxford University, England (B.A. 1883; M.A. 1886), and played cricket for the university during his time there as well as for the Marylebone Cricket Club and, later, Ireland. He was a left-handed batsman and wicket-keeper.
