It is either fictitious, or associated with a different John Temple, or John's father Richard had disowned him by 1688. If you refer to Richard's notes, you will see that he refers to Abraham as his eldest son in his will. Either John was dead by that time, or he had been disinherited.

Much of his correspondence is in the Library of Congress.

During the first riot in the United States (that is, after the Revolution), Sir John had an interesting experience. The riot was in New York, and concerned the doctors' use of cadavers. At the time, no legal means existed to obtain cadavers, so the doctors had to rely on Resurrectionists (that is, grave robbers). One particular incident flared into riots over several days. On the second day of the riots, the rioters invaded the home of Sir John and lotted and ransacked it. Apparently, the attention paid to sir John was a confusion between his name and the word "surgeon." He Succeeded to the Temple baronetcy in 1786 in New York City, New York, NY.99988 He died on 17 November 1798 at the age of 66 in New York City, New York, NY.15083,15086,99988 Buried in Saint Paul's Chapel and Churchyard, Manhattan, NY.

Journals of the Continental Congress, 1774-1789
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1785.

Congress assembled. Present, as before.

The secretary of the United States for the department of foreign affairs, to whom was referred his letter of the 24th November, to his excellency the president, with Mr. J. Temple's commission, having reported,

"That John Temple, esq. has presented to the United States in Congress assembled, a commission in due form, bearing date the 5th day of February last, from his Britannic majesty, constituting and appointing him the consul general of his said majesty in these states. That there is as yet no commercial treaty or convention subsisting between his Britannic majesty and the United States, whereby either have a perfect right to establish consuls in the
dominions of the other, but that amicable negotiations for that and other reciprocal privileges are now depending: That although the issue of those negotiations is as yet uncertain, it will nevertheless be proper for the United States, on this and every other occasion, to
observe as great a degree of liberality as may consist with a due regard to their national honor and welfare;" therefore,

Resolved, That the said John Temple, esq. be, and he hereby is received and recognized as consul general of his Britannic majesty throughout the United States, and that his commission be registered in the secretary's office.

Resolved, That all the privileges, pre-eminences and authority, which the laws of nations, and of the land, give to a consul general received by the United States, from any nation with whom they have no commercial treaty or convention, are due to the said John Temple, and shall be enjoyed by him.

Ordered, That certified copies of the above resolutions be transmitted to the executives of the different states for their information

[Note 1: 1 The report and resolutions relative to John Temple were also entered in the manuscript Secret Journal, Foreign Affairs No. 5, by Benjamin Bankson.]

Journals of the Continental Congress, 1774-1789
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1782

A letter, of 23, from the Secretary for foreign affairs, was taken into consideration; and thereupon,

Resolved, That the Secretary of the United States of America for the department of foreign affairs, be, and he is hereby, empowered to settle the wages of the two persons who have
hitherto been employed as secretaries or clerks in his office, for the time they have served, at the rate of seven hundred and fifty dollars per annum each.

Ordered, That the remainder of the letter, touching the appointment of two under secretaries, instead of a secretary, be committed

[Note 1: 1 This resolution and order were also entered in the manuscript Secret Journal, Foreign Affairs.]

On the report of a committee, consisting of Mr. [Edmund] Randolph, Mr. [James] Lovell, Mr. [Joseph] Montgomery, to whom was referred a letter of 22 November last, from the Secretary for foreign affairs, relative to Mr. John Temple :

Resolved, That the President inform the governor and council of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, that matters of public concern, and the pressing necessity of making provision for the ensuing campaign, have hitherto prevented Congress from attending
to a subject which, though it respects an individual, may have an influence on the public affairs of these United States.

The Executive of Massachusetts cannot have forgotten The suspicions and jealousies excited by Mr. John Temple's return to America in 1778, and the reports currently circulated in England relative to his mission, are notorious. The time and manner of his coming to America, as well as the person accompanying him, who has since avowed his purpose is now resident in and a subject of Great Britain, gave great force to the suspicions then raised. These suspicions, instead of being allayed, were increased by Mr. Temple's return to England, and by the rumours and publications respecting his intercourse and conference with the British ministry. His coming again to America without explaining his views, and
as far as is come to the knowledge of Congress, without any leave previously obtained, and this at the very time when the enemy entertained the fond hope of having subdued the southern states, cannot fail to excite new jealousies, and a suspicion of his being employed as an emissary from the British crown.

That the President further inform the governor and council of Massachusetts, that although Mr. Temple was the bearer of some letters from the Hon ble John Adams at Amsterdam, yet the subject of the letters with which he was entrusted, and of those which Mr. Adams chose to send at the same time by another conveyance, sufficiently evince that he had not the full confidence of that minister, and that the letter which Mr. Adams took the trouble of
writing respecting Mr. Temple, did in no wise account for his past conduct, or explain his future views or designs. And therefore, as the United States ought to be on their guard, as well against the secret arts as open force of their subtle and inveterate enemy, that
it is the wish of Congress that the executive of Massachusetts would enquire strictly into the conduct, views, and designs of Mr. John Temple, and if they are not fully convinced of the
uprightness of his intentions, or if they have any apprehensions that he has, in his visits to America, been countenanced or employed by, or has acted in concert with the British ministry or their agents, that they order him back to Britain or take such measures
respecting him as may put it out of his power to injure the cause of these United States.

[Note 1: 1 This report, in the writing of Charles Thomson, is in the Papers of the Continental Congress, No. 19, VI, folio 23.]

The American National Biography series included the following:
"In 1764 Temple got into an epic fight with the royal governor of Massachusetts, Francis Bernard. Temple accused Bernard of collusion with James Cockle, collector of the port of Salem and Marblehead, in extortion and fraud, bringing charges formally to the commissioners of customs and also in private correspondence with Thomas Whately, who was both George Grenville's private secretary and a secretary of the treasury board."[NOTE: George Grenville was alter prime minister, and was the brother of Richard Grenville, Earl Temple.] "Cockle was dismissed, but Bernard, backed by his patron Lord Barrington and the Newcastle faction, kept his governorship."
"Whately used Temple as a listening post in America, especially on the matter of an American stamp tax. Temple provided the detailed information Whately requested but predicted that Americans would resist on constitutional grounds. He did try to enforce the Stamp Act, refusing to allow ships to clear without stamped papers, but he had informed the Whig leaders of his opposition to the act and again escaped the opprobrium a Grenville appointee and blood relative might have expected. Temple continued to hound Bernard, telling Whately in May 1765 that Grenville must see that 'Governor Bernard and myself cannot both (consistent with the Welfare of the Public Service) remain in our present Stations.' By July, however, the Grenville ministry had fallen and the Newcastle Whigs, under whom Bernard had been appointed, were back in power."
"In January 1767 Temple married Elizabeth Bowdoin, daughter of the Patriot leader James Bowdoin. They had five children. Also in 1767 Temple was made a member of the American board of customs commissioners, created by the Townsend Acts. He alone escaped harassment from the Sons of Liberty, while the other four commissioners, all allies of Governor Bernard, had to flee Boston during the Liberty riots of 1768. Bernard demanded--and secured--Temple's dismissal."
"Temple sailed to England in early 1771, but he was unable to convince the North ministry to restore him. However, his threat to publish his correspondence with Thomas Whately, who had led the Grenvilleites over to Lord North, induced the government to create a new position for him: surveyor general of customs for England."
"In 1765 Temple had, at Whately's request, arranged a correspondence between Whately and Thomas Hutchinson. Soon after Whately's death in May 1772, Benjamin Franklin sent the Massachusetts House of Representatives sixteen private letters written to Whately by Governor Thomas Hutchinson and Lieutenant Governor Andrew Oliver advocating changes in New England's jury system and saying that colonists could not possibly enjoy all the liberties of Britons. The Massachusetts legislature petitioned the king to dismiss Hutchinson and Oliver."
"Suspicion for having passed the letters to the Americans fell on Whately's brother William. He insisted that he had never looked at them but recalled that in October 1772 Temple had asked to reclaim his letters to Thomas Whately, and he suggested the Temple had used the occasion to lift the Hutchinson-Oliver letters. Temple denied it, probably knowing that Franklin had acquired them from a sympathizer in the Colonial Office, but anonymous letters in London newspapers accused Temple of theft. When Whately refused to refute the accusation, Temple, on 11 December 1773, challenged him to a duel. Because there were no seconds, there were no reliable witnesses to the fight. Anonymous newspaper letters soon accused Temple of wounding Whately when he was down, and when Whately refused to deny them, another challenge seemed likely. But on Christmas day Benjamin Franklin, in the London Chronicle, admitted that he had taken the letters."
"Franklin's confession forestalled another duel, but it put Franklin in particularly bad light with the Privy Council when news of the Boston Tea Party arrived. Franklin lost his appointment as postmaster general for the colonies and his effectiveness as a lobbyist for Massachusetts just when the government was considering how to punish Boston. Temple, far from being exonerated, lost both his job as surveyor general and his honorific lieutenant governorship. The Coercive Acts soon followed, and they were the immediate cause of the War for American Independence." Parents: Captain Robert TEMPLE-4625 and Mehitable NELSON-4626.

Spouse: Mary (Molley) MASON-1132. Mary (Molley) MASON and Lt. John TEMPLE were married on 25 April 1786 in Carlisle, Middlesex, MA.10861,52131,52132,52133 Date of marriage in Pension Files. Children were: John TEMPLE-1133, Elizabeth (Eliza\Betsey) TEMPLE-1134, Abijah TEMPLE-1135.


John TEMPLE was born in 1757 in Concord, Middlesex, MA.99350 He served in the military in 1775 in MA.99350 Served in Captain Ezra Town's Company, Col. James Read's regiment as a private. Listed as 5'6" with a fair complexion and light eyes. Enlisted 23 Apr 1775 and mustered 11 Jul 1775. In 1775 he was a Carpenter in Templeton, Worcester, MA.99350

John TEMPLE99997 was born on 28 May 1758 in Westmoreland Co., PA.51789 He one of the original settlers with 83 acres about 1810 in Giles Co., TN.99998 The specific date is not given. The introduction merely says, "Among the first grants issued to lands afterwards in Giles County, an old list shows the following:" and gives John's allotment. Giles County was established in 1810, but the area had been surveyed during the Revolution. He died on 28 May 1828 at the age of 70 in Giles Co., TN.7731,34478,46317,51789,99999 Buried in Old Brush Creek Cemetery, Ardara, PA. Supposed to have fought in the Revolutionary War in command of a company of Scotch Grays from Scotland.

There may be some confusion on John (the son of Major) and the John Temple who died in Pennsylvania in 1826/1828. More research must be done on this relationship. Recent research by a consortium of TEMPLE genealogists has produced a genealogy of John Temple, husband of Elizabeth Marshall, former British Army officer who seems to have been confused with John, the son of Major. The view presented here represents the research of this consortium, but the confusion has extensively penetrated secondary sources.

Joanne May provided the following information:

1. In will of Major Temple dated 1816 he mentions "heirs of my son John" Surely, indicating that John was deceased. Add to this a will was proved on John Temple in 1816 Giles Co,TN, a few months before Major’s.

2. Major Temple was b 1736, he is definitely married to Mary by 1760s (land records in Mecklenburg) ... Mary’s brother John Kennedy Sr was being born in 1730s, making Mary b c1740? Mary died only 4 yrs after Major (her will 1820). So, she probably isn’t that much younger than him. Mary also named in her will Mary E.R., daughter of John. Yet, in their line (John in PA) they do not show a Mary.

3. In the 1783 tax list of Greene Co, TN. Major is listed with sons: James, John, and William. This should make them 16 and above... born pre 1767. Major’s son Thomas was the only one to make it to the 1850 census - age 83 SC, making him born 1766/7 (according to descendant’s records he was born 5-1-1766). So, the three other boys would have been the older ones, probably starting in the late 1750s. This would make Major and Mary marrying fairly young - in their early twenties at the latest.

Certainly the John Temple in Giles Co, TN, may not be Major’s son... but it makes
more sense than his returning to PA with a completely different wife and family???

Dorothy Schendel provided further information on this family:

Dear Park,

The history of John Temple seems even cloudier is the new version. Joanne May had convinced me the John who married Elizabeth Marshall was not the son of Major Temple but a separate individual, but there is no mention of John Temple of Chernside nr Berwick, England.

1. A letter to my aunt from W.M. Shankland Ed. D. of Missouri invites her to join in their research of the Temple family. He sites, "John Temple a British army officer who came over during the Revolution, but decided to join the Colonial army and make America his home. He moved to West Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh after the war. He married Elizabeth Marshal and had many children, most all boys. The youngest was Robert born 1806 who married a Gregory and came to Illinois sometime about 1855. Oldest son of Robert William G., Who was born in 1829 or 30 in Pennsylvania. This William G. had children by his wife Mary
Cashdollar; being Elsie, Robert, Rebecca, Robert And Adeline."

I wrote to Dr. Shankland, but my letter was returned. My cousin got the letter from my aunt many many years ago. I do know that William went to Illinois about the time he mentions because the 1960 census for Randolph county shows them there. A person who believes she is the daughter of Elizabeth daughter of John has contacted saying in the 1870 Census she found William G. with two additional children and what appears to be William, son of John, with Sarah his wife as well as Robert, son of John and Rebecca. The years of age seem to correspond. We have no other proof yet.

This all took place yesterday. I have written my correspondent about Joanne's Temple Letter and your Temple Families web site. I was just checking out your web site to see if I could be more specific on how to get to John Temple of Chernside nr Berwick, England. The Chernside information came, I believe, from a letter Jim Sterrett wrote to Joanne's mother which Joanne has sent to me. I will have to dig it out of my files to be sure of the source.

2. In a letter dated 28 Feb 1978, to my cousin, Jim Sterrett states that," I feel safe in addressing you as cousin because I am sure that your surmise about the eleventh child of John Temple and Elizabeth Marshall Temple is correct. Their eleventh child was Robert, born June 10, 1806. He moved with his older brother William to Illinois and
settled near Sparta, Randolph County.

I know nothing about either William or Robert except that William married in 1819, Sarah Love. I have been able to trace many of the other brothers and sisters. John Temple, the oldest, died February 22, 1875 in Jefferson County, Pa. and is buried in the Temple Cemetery, which is along Rt. 28 about half way between Brookville and Brockway. I
do not believe he had children. His wife Elizabeth Shearer Temple died previously and is buried in Westmoreland County, Pa. The older sister Elizabeth Temple was not married and died in Jefferson county in 1872 (I will have to remember to tell my correspondent about this part). She is also buried in the Temple Cemetery. She did, however have a daughter! The sister Ann must have been Mrs. Gibson. I have no proof of this, but supposed one of the sisters married a Gibson.

The mother Elizabeth Marshall (I believe that I read on your page that she was the daughter of William Marshal.) Temple, died on October 10, 1811 and is buried at Brush Creek Cemetery in Westmoreland County. There are two Brush Creek Cemeteries - The Temples are buried in "old" Brush Creek, on Leger Road, near Irwin. Pa.

I am supposedly descended from the brother Isaac, but there are some discrepancies in dates, so I am not certain. My great great grandmother was Mary Temple McCurdy, born in 1818. She was raised as a daughter by Isaac and Dorcas (Eckles) Temple, but according to the bible record, they were not married until 1821. I don't know have the vaguest idea
how to find out just who she was. Because of my inability to establish her parentage for certain, I have not worked on the Temple family of late.

Please let me know what sorts of information you would like, and I will try to provide it. I have accumulated a lot of data on these folks over the past few years. Incidentally, there are still Temples in Sparta, Illinois who may also be descended from Robert. You may be able to
contact them and find out more about him."

I also wrote to Jim Sterrett in Beaver Fall, PA a couple of years ago, but his letter was returned also. I am sorry this is so long but I didn't want to para-phrase these people and I thought it might be of interest since the entire conversation is about Temples. I know I have
heard someone speak of both Gibson and McCurdy on The Temple Letter.

I hope we will be able to make this information about John Temple of Westmoreland County, Pa. and John Temple son of Major Temple more separated and less confusing soon. Parents: Major TEMPLE-4486 and Mary Jane KENNEDY-4488.

John TEMPLE15384,51792,81330 was born on 20 May 1758 in Chernside nr Berwick, England, United Kingdom.20317,51791 The History of Washington County, PA, and others, said he was from Scotland.

Evidence exists that he also joined the American forces. He moved to Western Pennsylvania after the war. His father was possibly William Temple, who was the mayor of Chirnside, Scotland in 1750.

John TEMPLE was born between 1765 and 1784.55648 He appeared in the census in 1810 in Chatham Co., NC.55648 He appeared in the census in 1820 in Craven Co., NC.93889 Enumerated with 1 male over 45 (himself), 3 males 16-26 two of whom were 16-18, and 1 10-16; 1 female 26-45, 1 16-26 and 1 0-10. John appeared in the census in 1840 in Chatham Co., NC.55648 Joyce Temple Barnett thinks that this John is a son of Benjamin b 1735, son of William and Elizabeth (Chambliss) Temple. The line's documentation is extremely thin, and this is a distinct possibility. He disappears in the 1820 and 1830 censuses, and may be off with other children of Benjamin's.


John TEMPLE2192 was born in 1765 in Killingworth, Middlesex, CT.35790 Date is based on his claimed age at death of 64y.

He appeared in the census in 1800 in Westmoreland, Cheshire, NH.100013 Enumerated with 1 FWM 26-44; 1 FWM over 45; 3 FWF under 10; 1 FWF 16-25; 2 FWF 26-44. The total number of household members under 16 was 3, and those over 25 were 4. Since there wre 8 total household members, that left one person between 16 and 25, most likel a daughter. John died on 16 January 1829 at the age of 64 in Claremont, Sullivan, NH.100014 Buried in Broad Street Cemetery, Claremont, NH. He is possibly a son or grandson of Jonathan Temple, one of the original grantees of Claremont, NH. Alternatively, could be the son of Jonathan Temple of Marlboro, MA, and later Henniker, NH. The 1790 census might make the former the more likely case. In 1800, he was enumerated among a number of Temples of varying age, among them being Jonas, Uriah and Urijah. Among these, the oldest were John and Urijah, possibly indicating they were brothers.
