Templeton Surname History



The Strathclyde-Briton people of ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Templeton. The Templeton family lived at the village of Templeton in the county of Ayrshire.

Early Origins of the Templeton family


The surname Templeton was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, before and after the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Migration of the Templeton family to the New World and Oceana


Many Scots were left with few options other than to leave their homeland for the colonies across the Atlantic. Some of these families fought to defend their newfound freedom in the American War of Independence. Others went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these families have recently been able to rediscover their roots through Clan societies and other Scottish organizations. Among them:
