About Gabriel Semple
From "A General Description of the Shire of Renfrew" by George Crawfurd:
The Barony of Cathcart being sold by Allan Lord Cathcart to Gabriel Semple of Ladymure, who was one of the younger sons of John Lord Semple, by Janet Colvil, his lady, took thence the designation of Cathcart. I have found him so designed, an. 1547. He married Janet Spreul, daughter of John Spreul of Coudon, and relict of John Pollock of that ilk. William Semple of Cathcart was his son; he had likewise a daughter, Margaret, married John Pollock of that ilk, and had issue. To William succeeded another Gabriel, who was father of Bryce Semple of Cathcart; whose son and heir is Sir William Semple, now of Cathcart, whose Armorial bearing is, Argent, a Chevron Checquie, Argent and Gules betwixt two Bugles, Sable, in chief, stringed Gules; and a Flower-de-luce in base, of the third; and for Crest, a Stag's Head; with this Motto, "Keep Tryst."
