About Betsy Trimble

The Clan Turnbull is descended from a family of Roule, or Rule, so named from the town of Roule, lying on the left bank of the stream called Rule. In 1300 William Rule was living there, he changed his name to "Turn e bull" by order of King Robert Bruce, whose life he saved from the attack of a wield bull, while jousting in the forest of Callander1 King Robert Bruce, was violently attacked, unhorsed and would have been killed, had not Rule jumped between the King and the enraged animal and seizing it by the horns, overthrew and killed it. For this gallant deed King Robert Bruce in 1315 granted to William Rule, alias, TURN E BULL, that piece of land called Fulhophold Philyshough) as far into the forest as it was ploughed in past time. For which he and his heirs were to present to the King, one broad arrow at the feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary (August 15).
