In ancient Scotland, Templetoom was a Strathclyde-Briton name for someone who lived at the village of Templeton in the county of Ayrshire.

Prior to the first dictionaries, scribes spelled words according to sound. This, and the fact that Scottish names were repeatedly translated from Gaelic to English and back, contributed to the enormous number of spelling variations in Scottish names.

The Great Migration



In such difficult times, the difficulties of raising the money to cross the Atlantic to North America did not seem so large compared to the problems of keeping a family together in Scotland. It was a journey well worth the cost, since it was rewarded with land and freedom the Scots could not find at home. The American War of Independence solidified that freedom, and many of those settlers went on to play important parts in the forging of a great nation. Among them: John Templeton settled in New England in 1771; Edward Templeton settled in New York State in 1804 along with Jane; William Templeton and his wife settled in New York in 1774.
