Many Researchers have said that the first Templin in America was a John Templin. The Family History Center in the family index has a John Templin from England, born in 1666. There was not any reference material to support this. However this could very well be true. This John Templin could be a Father, Brother or no relation to the Richard Born 1688 and died 1775 in Chester County, Pa. But in studying the geographical areas of Va., Penn., Delaware, and Maryland, the locations are not that far apart.
