Whichever criteria one attempts to use difficulties occur.

It is usually taken for granted that Iain Hamilton was a Scottish composer. He was born in Glasgow but his family moved to London when he was seven. Hamilton was educated in London, was based there until he moved to Duke University, North Carolina in the early 1960s, settled in New York but returned to London where he died in 2000. Hamilton is "only" Scottish by birth although the BBC certainly seemed to regard him as Scottish. William Wordsworth was born in England, moved permanently to Scotland when he was 53, settled in Invernessshire and remained there until his death in 1988. The BBC in Scotland treated him as, at least, an "honorary Scot".
