  • RESIDENCE: SCT
  • BIRTH: ABT 0370, shore of Solway Firth
  • DEATH: ABT 0432, Withern [Whithorn]

Notes


"Ninian is said to have been born on the shore of Solway Firth,15 to have been the son of a king, or nobleman, and to have studied at Rome, where he was consecrated as Bishop by Pope Siricius. He started in 395 on a mission to convert the Attecotts.17


Now, he chose his seat in a place which is now called Withern [Whithorn]; which place, situate upon the shore of the ocean, while the sea stretches far from the east, west, and south, is inclosed by the sea itself; from the north part a way is opened for those only who are willing to enter. There, then, by the command of the man of God, the masons, whom he had brought with him, erect a church; before which they say there was none in Britain built of stone.18


This stone church presented such a contrast to the customary oaken structures of the surrounding country that it soon became known far and wide as the White House. Ninian is said to have died and been buried here about 432.19."


Life of St. Ninian [written in the twelfth century]


"The population of this kingdom seems to have belonged to the two varieties of the


British race-- the southern half, including Dumfriesshire, being Cymric or Welsh, and the northern half having been occupied by the Damnonii, who belonged to the Cornish variety. The capital of the kingdom was the strongly fortified position on the rock on the right bank of the Clyde, termed by the Britons Alcluith, and by the Gadhelic people Dunbreatan, or the fort of the Britons, now Dumbarton; but the ancient town called Caer Luel or Carlisle in the southern part must always have been an important position. The kingdom of the Britons had at this time no territorial designation, but its monarchs were termed kings of Alcluith, and belonged to that party among the Britons who bore the peculiar name of Romans, and claimed descent from the ancient Roman rulers in Britain. The law of succession seems to have been one of purely male descent.--Celtic Scotland, vol. i., p. 236."

Benjamin Franklin BROCKINGTON

ABT 1820 - ____

ID Number: I33023

  • RESIDENCE: Williamsburg Dist. SC
  • BIRTH: ABT 1820
  • RESOURCES: See: [S1246]
Father: John BROCKINGTON III
Mother: Sarah "Sally" NESMITH


Family 1 : Martha Greer HAMLIN?

Notes


"Benjamin Franklin Brockinton was an affectionate relative and good client of mine. He lived in such as "out of the way place" not very far from his father's old plantation, that I never visited his house, never found a convenient opportunity. I had settled in Kingstree before he had a house of his own. He married a widow, a Mrs. Munnerlyn whom I did not know. Benjamin Franklin Brockinton and his wife had children, I do not know their names and numbers. (Think his wife was Martha Greer Hamblin)" [S1246]
