RIDDELS OF PETERHEAD, ABERDEENSHIRE, SCOTLAND.

John Riddel 1 (1), son of a farmer near Aberdeen, early settled near
Peterhead, Scotland, and was probably a connection of the Riddells of
Glenmnick, as there were branches of that family whose genealogy can-
not be distinctly traced. He married Margaret, daughter of James Coch-
rane, weaver. Dunbar, Scotland, in 1816, and was atone time a prosperous
merchant at Portsea, but by intemperance squandered his property and
became a poor man. He subsequently resided in Chatham and London,
Eng. Had family of seven children, of whom hereafter. Have no record

RIDDELS OF CUSHNIE, ABERDEENSHIRE.

Peter Riddel' 2 (1), of Fletcher, Can., says his grandfather was a tailor
who lived on the farm of Balnakelly, Cushnie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland,
and had seven sons and two daughters, all of them six feet in height. From
these sons are fifty-one grandchildren and twenty-seven great-grandchil-
dren, some in Scotland, England, Africa, China, and Canada. The tradition
of this family is that their ancestor was chief of the Clan Chatrina, and
got the name Riddel in consequence of some heroic deed he had done,
while acting in that capacity. Peter Riddel has written to Scotland for
genealogical information, but it has not reached me. I think this family
a connection of the Riddels of Glenmuick, and Riddels of Peterhead, in
the same shire, from the name Peter* in these branches and the orthography
of the surname being spelled with only one I, a form peculiar to families
in Aberdeenshire.



RIDDLES OF HERMITAGE CASTLE, SCOTLAND.

William Riddle 1 (1), parents unknown, was a native of Roxburgh-
shire, Scotland, and his family hold the tradition that they are descended
from the ancient family of Riddell of that ilk, so long settled in Lillies-
leaf. William married Catherine Brydon, and had issue nine children, of
whom hereafter. He lived some time at Hermitage Castle, a place on the
Hermitage- Water, in Castleton parish, and some of his children were
born there.

SECOND GENERATION.

William Riddle 2 (2), eldest son of William 1 (1), was born at Hermit-
age Castle, Liddesdale, Scotland, in Nov. 1801; married Jessie, daughter

* It seems a little singular that the Christian name Feter should be almost ex-
clusively confined to the Riddels of Aberdeenshire. This name was in the family
of Newcastle-on-Tyne, as early as 1500. The remote ancestors are supposed to be
from the Gleu-Riddell family, as the branch of Glenmuick use the same crest.

Rev. William Riddell 3 (1), third son of John- (1), was born at Glas-
gow, Nov. 10, 1801, and emigrated to America in early life. Never mar-
ried. He studied a while at Lafayette College, in Pennsylvania. Grad-
uated at Princeton College in 1837. After leaving college he immediately
entered the Theological Seminary at Princeton, and after a three years'
course graduated in 1840. Was ordained as an evangelist by the Pres-
bytery of Raritan, N. J., Oct. 5, 1841. He next appears a member of the
Presbytery of Mississippi in 1844, in connection with which he continued
till 1859, when having removed to the Yazoo Valley, he was transferred
to the Presbytery of Central Mississippi. He labored as stated supply to
several churches in the interior counties of the State till 1849, when he
removed to a neighborhood of planters, near Port Gibson, where he taught
the children in a private family and preached to the negroes on several
adjoining plantations. He was engaged in this work till the war of the
Rebellion interrupted it, when he consented reluctantly to abandon it and
return to Scotland. (In 1859, he had removed with the family with whom

While in Scotland he never (probably) exercised his ministerial office, but
preached occasionally, and became a frequent contributor to the "Pres-
byterian," of Philadelphia, over the signature of "Rutherglen." In per-
sonal appearance he was diminutive, and was known as "little Mr. Rid-
dell." His features were good, and his expression intelligent. He depre-
ciated himself so much and morbidly, that he led others to do the same.
He gave his confidence to few, yet his affections when bestowed were
strong. His mind was vigorous, keen, and metaphysical ; his tastes were
delicate, and his scholarship usually exact and comprehensive. Some of
his papers prepared for his Presbytery were masterly. As a preacher he
was awkward in address, and his voice low and drawling. But his ser-
mons were rich with sound and weighty thought. He was thoroughly
disinterested and devoted to his work among the negroes ; at the same
time his idiosyncracies and peculiarities were an obstacle to his popularity.
Everybody said, "Mr. Riddell is a good man." His life is said, by those
who knew him best, to have been a shadowed one, but his death was no
doubt a translation from darkness to light eternal.
