About Sir David Wemyss of Kincaldrum, Kt.

Had lands in Lochore, in Glassmonth near Kinghorn and elsewhere. He was one of two Scottish Ambassadors to Norway. He was appointed to escort princess Margaret, known as the Maid of Norway, from the Orkney Islands to the capital of Scotland, where she was to assume the throne. Although she died before she reached Scotland, the King of Norway acknowledged the preparatory efforts of Sir David Wemyss and the silver basin he gave him is still in the possession of the Wemyss family in Fife. He supported King Robert the Bruce and served as King's Lieutenant. Sir David Wemyss was among the signers of the Declaration of Arbroth, a Scottish independence document sent to the Pope.

He married twice and had at least two sons. Married firstly Annabella St. Clair-Bisset (daughter of Sir William St. Clair; widow of Sir Robert Bisset).
