James Anderson Hamilton was an architect active, particularly in Scotland, in the 19th century. He was born in Barony Parish, Lanarkshire in 1816.
Hamilton is perhaps best known for his work as principal clerk on the National Gallery of Scotland which he completed to William Henry Playfair's (born 1790, died 1857), designs in 1858. He is also noted for his eccentric use of the Greek revival and baronial styles of architecture. Hamilton died in 1875.
