The Manuscript History of Craignish
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (126 pages)
Author: A. Campbell & H. Campbell
Written by Alexander Campbell, and edited by Herbert Campbell, this 1924 published book details the Campbells of Craignish who lived on the west coast of Argyllshire, and this is an account of that family, written perhaps around 1719-1725. It is preeminently a genealogical account of this particular branch of the Campbell family, beginning with a rather fanciful and highly suspect origin and continuing more reliably into the 17th and 18th centuries. It has had a controversial past, but the editor has done an excellent job of placing it in its historical perspective.
