About Robert Semple

Johnnie Galbraith's notes mention him as father of Thomas Semple

Notes from Web:

Interesting that I have also identified my great great great grandfather as Robert Semple b 17/7/20 in Ryeland Avondale married a Janet Thomson...through son Thomas b May 1755 Kypeside.

Information from a a book available on the net by Elizabeth Schnegelberger on Lanarkshire families led me to another Robert Semple as father of Robert(b1720) given as tailor from Bridgend, Sandford.. dob not given but said to be son of John Semple who iin turn is said to have carried a Standard at Bothwell Brig preseved in Strathaven museum...I have seen the standard there.She quotes a Semple family from Thankerton as the source of the info.

The same story is repeated on a handwritten family tree from the last century perhaps written by my Great great grandfather? He came from Kypeside & became a minister at Ruthrieston West Church Aberdeen

dying in 1922. His portait is in our dining room.

Where does your information come from about the earlier Semples? Perhaps it is the same source?

Best wishes

Peter Semple
