Dalrymple  Forum an oldie but goodie!

Local. Taken from the lands and barony of Dalrymple, in Ayrshire, Scotland. The name is said to be a corruption of the Gaelic Dale—roi—milleadh, which signifies "the valley of the slaughter of kings," and the place was so called from a battle fought there before the Christian era, in which two kings, Fergus and Coilus, were slain. According to others, it signifies "the valley of the crooked pool." I think the name signifies "the valley on the margin of the pool," from the Welsh Dol, a valley; the edge or border, and a pool. It is very nearly the same in Gaelic; Bail, a vale, troimh , (Gaelic) by, along with the whole extent, and poll, a small lake.

(Celtic) belonging to Dalrymple (Ayr), 15th cent. Dalrumpyll-the Field of the Crooked Pool [Gaelic dail-chruim-puill] The village of Dalrymple is pleasantly situated on the Doon, where that river has a considerable bend.—Nat Gaz.

Thanks for this information the set I would like to work on ended up in a place called West Pelzer today and put up a marker to claim his land during one War not sure if this was a battle of Revolutionary War or War of 1812, or maybe when the Union Army came to town, the Dalrymple and other first families in this area maybe called living in what is called Williams Town (Williamson, Anderson County, South Carolina)

This road is hwy 8, it is the old trial from Charleston, South Carolina (the coast) to the mountains of North Carolina, I was told lots of battles was along this trail...

Thanks for helping...
I do know at the intersection of what is called today hwy 8 and hwy 20   it was called (hwy 29 before hwy 20 back in 1950's), that a big battle of War, I don't know which battle but up on a Hill they are many small crosses marking un name soldiers if I could find out the regiment it may have some of my family listed
The more I look this maybe two different sets of Dalrymple's my set I don't see yet, the Laurens set and Anderson set may have been cousins..
