 Monument Inscriptions & Other Deaths

Parish of Carnbee

In the churchyard, a tombstone commemorates Robert Gillespie Smyth of Gibliston; major in the County Militia, and a Deputy Lieutenant. Son of Dr James Gillespie, Principal of St Mary’s College, St Andrews, he was born in that city on the 4th February, 1777. He assumed the name of Smyth on his marriage with the heiress of Gibliston. He died at Gibliston on the 11th November, 1855. Mr Smyth was esteemed for his beneficence.

Interned in the Abbey Church without memorial stone is the Rev Thomas Gillespie, founder of the Relief Church. This accomplished and excellent man was born at Duddingstone, near Edinburgh in 1708. He obtained license to preach from a body of English Dissenters, under the moderatorship of Dr Doddridge, and in 1741 was admitted Minister of Carnock. Disobeying the orders of the General Assembly with most of his brethren in settling an unacceptable presentor in the parish of Inverkeithing, Thomas was disposed from the ministry, 23 May 1752. After preaching four months in the open air, a meeting place was built for him at Dumferline. Being joined by two other ministers, Mr Gillespie founded the Relief Synod, 23 Oct, 1761. He died January 19, 1774.

Dr Thomas Gillespie, successor of Dr John Hunter in the Humanity Chair, had a plain tombstone erected at his grave. Born at Closeburn in February 1778, he was educated at Wallace Hall and in 1802 entered the University of Edinburgh. Having obtained license he was in 1813 appointed to the church living at Cults through the influence of Dr John Hunter, whose daughter he had married. In 1828 he became Dr Hunter’s assistant in the Humanity Chair, and eight years afterwards, succeeded to the full emoluments of the office to the Principalship. He died at Dunino, near St Andrews, on the 11th September, 1844, age sixty-seven.  Dr Gillespie excelled as a conversationalist and was an accomplished scholar. He composed respectable verses.
