Campbell Family History from The Scots Peerage
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (178 pages)
Author: J. Balfour-Paul
This CD contains the 178 pages from 'The Scots Peerage', written by Sir James Balfour-Paul, that related to the Campbell family.
Presented here are the genealogical and historical records of all branches of the Campbell family holding titles of nobility. Included are:
- Duke of Argyll
- Earl of Atholl
- Earl and Marquess of Breadalbane
- Earl of Irvine
- Earl of Loudon
The senior branch of Argyll traces its lineage back to Cailean Mór, from whom the Chief gets his patronymic of MacCailean Mór. This Colin was slain at Ath-Dearg in Lorn in 1294. After the House of Argyll, the leading family are the Campbells of Breadalbane, whose ancestor was Black Colin of Glenorchy, second son of Sir Duncan Campbell, Knight of Lochow, 1st Lord Campbell, by his wife, Lady Marjory Stewart. Hence the patronymic of the House of Breadalbane Mac-Chailein-Mhic-Dhonnachaidh (son of Colin son of Duncan).
