1719 : Robinson Crusoe aka Alexander Selkirk

Lots here. But I’ll start with something very personal….

MY Father and His Father and His…etc were all born in The Royal Kingdom of Fife.

As was our ancestor Admiral Sir Samuel Greig of the Russian Navy.

Ladela me!

Another FAMOUS Fife man was Alexander Selkirk. Also a Navy bloke and a bit of a pirate aka Naughty Boy :o)

We all know about Alexander but don’t realise it because he is immortalised in a 1719 novel by Daniel Defoe as Robinson Crusoe.

Alexander Selkirk – 1676 to 1721

A Legend in his own lifetime ?

Books then Bruce….who told me to keep this quiet but – HIS grandfather was also a Fife man. Ssssh!

WILSON ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
