Margaret Stuart Hamilton Tyndall-Bruce


1788 - 1869

Heiress and landowner. The daughter of Robert Hamilton Bruce, she inherited Falkland Palace from her uncle, John Hamilton Bruce, in 1826. Two years later, she married an impecunious Bristol barrister, Onesiphorous Tyndall, and repaid his debts. The couple lived for ten years at Nuthill House, before demolishing this to build the House of Falkland in 1840. She was buried next to her husband in the churchyard of Falkland Parish Church.
