They seem to be so common in Canada.
Toronto has quite a few rowhouses too. A difference I've noticed is that most of Hamilton's attached houses have big dividing walls, often with double chimneys, protruding from the roof between them while this is much less common in Toronto. Perhaps due to differences in fire codes?

Good observation on the windows, there are a lot of them. No name that I know of for this window configuration. I doubt they are original since the top pane of glass is very large by the standards of the mid 19th century.
