Hemphills Of North Carolina
Available records indicate that the North Carolina line of the Hemphill family came from Scotland to Pennsylvania, and then to North Carolina.
The family name of Hemphill is a Sept within Clan Cunningham. The clan takes their name from the district of Cunningham in northern Ayrshire. Their primary tartan is made of red, black, and white colors. The motto of the clan is "Over Fork Over." The Hemphill motto became "Constanter ac non timide," which means "Constant and Fearless."
Much of the known family information comes from research conducted by Mary Sue Hendrix and Margaret Anthony, which was compiled in the book, “The Hemphills in North Carolina.” The book is no longer in print but you will find some of the information summarized here. More information will be added as is feasible.
We now store the many facts, dates, and stories that make up our family history online at Ancestry.com. Through this site, we are able to continue to add missing people, historical facts, pictures and stories to our database. The other exciting component of this site is that it will be easier to publish our next family history book.
