The origins of Clan Campbell are uncertain. The earliest attested Campbell is Gilleasbaig of Menstrie (floruit 1260s), father of Cailean Mór, from whom the chiefs of the clan are thought to have taken their style MacCailean Mór. The byname kambel is recorded at this time. Fanciful reconstructions derive it from the French de Campo Bello, but the likely source is the caimbeul, an Early Modern Irish or Gaelic by name meaning wry mouth, crooked mouth or twisted mouth.

Regarding the earlier ancestors of Clan Campbell, there is good evidence that the Campbells themselves traced their descent from an earlier kindred known as the Mac Duibne, or perhaps the Uí Duibne. It has been suggested that the family’s early landholdings, around Menstrie, and in Cowal, were related to the partition of the Mormaerdom of Mentieth in 1213, and that Gilleasbuig may have been a kinsman of Mormaer Muireadhach Mór. The lands around Loch Awe, which would later form the core of their possessions, were not held at an early date.

The name begins to be established in Argyll at the end of the 13th century, as followers of the Earl of Lennox, with Campbells owning lands in Kintyre and the famous warrior Cailean Mór (Great Colin) knighted (1280) and established at Loch Awe. Cailean Mór’s older brother established at Strachur forming the oldest branch of Clan Campbell, see Campbell of Strachur.

Between 1200 and 1500 the Campbells emerged as one of the most powerful families in Gaelic speaking Scotland, dominant in Argyll and capable of wielding a wider influence and authority in the Hebrides and western Highlands. source: Scotweb

Kirkcaldy, town and seaport, Fife council area and historic county, eastern Scotland, on the north shore of the Firth of Forth. First developed by Dunfermline Abbey nearby, Kirkcaldy was a flourishing port during the later Middle Ages. It was designated a royal burgh in 1450, and the royal charter was confirmed by King Charles II in 1662. In the course of the 16th century it became an important commercial centre and seaport, and the local salt trade was then the largest in Scotland. Flemish influence appears in a group of 15th-century houses overlooking the harbour; they now belong to the National Trust for Scotland. After a decline in the 18th century, Kirkcaldy’s fortunes revived with the establishment of its linen industry in the early 19th century and reached another peak after the development of its famous linoleum industry. Large areas of 19th-century factories and warehouses left by its decline were cleared and redeveloped for housing. Kirkcaldy, as the largest town in Fife, has become a commercial centre with many retailers and leisure activities. Kirkcaldy is called the Lang Toun because, after it absorbed Linktown and Abbotshall on the west and Pathhead, Sinclairtown, and Gallatown on the east, its main street reached a length of nearly 4 miles (6.5 km).

Sir Archibald Gillespic Campbell, (1041-1091)

The Campbells of Craignish (Mac Dúbhghaill Creaginnis in the Scottish Gaelic or Gàidhlig), form one of the oldest branches of the ancient and powerful Clan Campbell in Scotland.. They claim descent from Dugald Campbell, the second son of Sir Archibald Gillespic Campbell (b.1130), 5th Knight of Lochawe and 20th Chief of Clan Campbell at the time. Sir Archibald’s first son, Sir Duncan Campbell, 6th Knight of Lochawe, was the founder of the principal branch of the Campbell family who today holds the title Duke of Argyll.
The family – the eldest cadets of the house of Argyll – was a virile race, its members in all generations, to their cost, little disposed to diplomacy or guile, but staunch defenders of their rights and good soldiers By alliances through marriage and conquest they quickly acquired large possessions, and their growing power was noticed with apprehension and jealousy by the parent house of Lochow. The family no longer owns the Lairdship of Craignish. The coat of arms of Dugall Campbell of Craignish is described in Nisbet’s “A System of Heraldry” as ‘gyronny of eight or and sable, the shield hanging from the mast of a lymphad sable’. The coat of arms left is the suggested arms of the current incumbent – the Ducal Crown is awarded because the holder is a Clan Chieftain, but it is tinctured blue because the original estates are no longer in possession of the Chieftain. The Chief of the Clan is also Chief of Clan MacInnes, and Chief of the Name MacIsaac, MacKissock and MacKessack. source: Wikipedia

The Campbells arrived in Argyll as part of a royal expedition in c.1220. They settled on Lochaweside where they were placed in charge of the King’s lands in the area.

From Bruce’s time, the family headquarters had been the great castle at Innischonnell on Loch Awe, and remained so until the 1400’s when Sir Duncan Campbell (great grandson of Sir Colin) moved to Inveraray. He was created Lord Campbell and thereafter a steady string of titles were awarded to the family. His grandson was created Earl of Argyll in 1457.

Sir Gillespic Campbell of Menstrie died circa 1280.

Colin (Chancellor of Scotland) Campbell, 1st Earl of Argyll, 2nd Lord Campbell

The first Lord Campbell was succeeded by his grandson Colin, the son of his second son Archibald.

He acquired part of the lordship of Campbell in the parish of Dollar, by marrying the eldest of the three daughters of John Stewart, third Lord of Lorn and Innermeath.

He did not, as is generally stated, acquire by this marriage any part of the lordship of Lorn (which passed to Walter, brother of John, the fourth Lord Innermeath, and heir of entail), but obtained that lordship by exchanging the lands of Baldunning and Innerdunning, etc. in Perthshire, with the said Walter.

In 1457 he was created Earl of Argyll.

In 1470 he was created baron of Lorne, and in 1481 he received a grant of many lands in Knapdale, along with the keeping of Castle Sweyn, which had previously been held by the Lord of the Isles.

By Isabel Stewart, his wife, eldest daughter of John, Lord of Lorne, the first Earl of Argyl has two sons and seven daughters.

Archibald, his elder son, became second earl, and Thomas, the younger, was the ancestor of the Campbells of Lundie, in Forfarshire. Another daughter was married to Torqui Macleod of the Lewis.

Kilchurn Castle, Glenorchy, Argyllshire, Scotland, built in mid 15th. century by Sir Colin Campbell, 1st. Earl of Glenorchy

In 1453, when his father died, young Colin Campbell was placed in the custody of his uncle, Colin Campbell, 1st of Glenorchy, and succeeded his grandfather, Duncan Campbell, 1st Lord Campbell, to become 2nd Lord Campbell.

In 1457, he was created Earl of Argyll by King James II of Scotland, who was grateful for the loyalty of his father during the troubles early in his reign.

In 1460, Campbell had a commission as Bailie of Cowal.

His uncle Colin arranged a marriage for him with Isabella Stewart, daughter and co-heiress of John Stewart, Lord Lorne (d.1463). Through this marriage, the Earl of Argyll received Castle Gloom (he would change the name of the castle to “Castle Campbell” in February 1490), and the neighboring estate in the parish of Dollar in Clackmannanshire.

Castle Campbell then became the primary seat of the Earls and Dukes of Argyll for the next two centuries.

As a result of his marriage with Isabel Stewart, Campbell acquired the title Lord Lorne in 1469, which had previously been held by his wife’s uncle, John Stewart. In exchange for this title, Campbell gave Stewart other lands, and Stewart received the title Lord Innermeath. Having received the title Lord Lorne, Campbell took the symbol of the galley from the Lorne heraldry as part of his Achievement. In the event that he might never have a male heir, he entailed the lordship of Lorne to his uncle Colin; if his uncle were to die, to his other uncle, Duncan Campbell; then to Colin Campbell of Arduquholm and to the heirs male of his body, which failing, then to his brothers, Archibald and Robert.

In 1471, he received the heritable offices of Justiciary and Sheriff of Lorne.

Once Prince James Stewart ascended to the Scottish throne as “King James IV”, he restored Campbell to the position of High Chancellor. Furthermore, the new king gave him the lands of Rosneath in Dunbartonshire on 9 January 1490, which remained in the Campbell family until 1939.

Campbell continued in favor with King James IV, and on 21 December 1491, he was one of the conservators of the truce between England and Scotland, which was extended to 1496.

One author has claimed that, one reason James III of Scotland has long had a sinister reputation is that “such accounts as we have of him are written by the partisans of his unruly nobles, such as the Earls of Argyll, Lennox, and Angus.”

Colin Campbell, 1st Earl of Argyll, died in 1493, and was buried at Kilmun Parish Church, Kilmun, Cowal Peninsula, Argyllshire, Scotland. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Archibald Campbell. source: Wikipedia

In traditional genealogies of the Clan Campbell, its origins are placed amongst the ancient Britons of Strathclyde. However, the earliest Campbell in written records is Gillespie who is recorded in 1263. Early grants to Gillespie and his relations were almost all in east-central Scotland. However, the family’s connection with Argyll came some generations before when a Campbell married the heiress of the O’Duines and she brought with her the Lordship of Loch Awe. Because of this the early clan name was Clan O’Duine and this was later supplanted by the style Clan Diarmid. This name came from a fancied connection to Diarmid the Boar, a great hero from early Celtic mythology.

Hugh and Margaret (Campbell) MacLean both died in New York, because they were both listed as residing in Champlain, Clinton, New York in 1790, according to the 1790 U.S. Census for Champlain, Clinton, New York. Hugh and Margaret (Campbell) MacLean died after 1790 in New York.

Achnacarry Castle is the ancestral home of the Chiefs of Clan Cameron, located at Achnacarry, about 15 mi (24 km) northeast of Fort William, Scotland near the foot of Loch Arkaig. The original castle was built around 1655 and destroyed after the Battle of Culloden in 1746; a new house in Scottish baronial style was built nearby in 1802.

Born: about 1440 in Scotland

Married: about 1460 in Scotland to Mariott “Mary” MacDonald of Keppoch

Died: about 1546 in Scotland

Donald Dubh’s son, Allan MacDonald Dubh (twelfth chief), must have succeeded his father shortly after 1461.  The Camerons had apparently made their peace with the MacDonalds by this time.  Allan had married a MacDonald lady, and in 1472 was appointed Keeper of the Castle of Strome (also called Strone), a MacDonald stronghold on Lochcarron in Ross-shire.  This Allan M’Coilduy had the character of one of the bravest captains of his time…  He is said to have made 32 expeditions into his enemy’s country for the 32 years he lived, and three more, for the three-fourths of a year that he was in his mother’s womb…  A Cameron raid upon Macintosh’s lands, which was thwarted by the duplicity of his neighbor and relative Keppoch, who secretly arranged to help Macintosh by attacking the Camerons in the rear.  This led to the defeat of the Camerons, and Allan was killed in the heat of the fray (circa 1480).  On account of the frequency of his raids and skirmishes he became known as Allan nan Creach (Allan of the Forays.)

Name: Catherine Campbell of Argyll, daughter of  Colin Campbell, (House of Campbell) and Lady Elizabeth Stewart.

In traditional genealogies of the Clan Campbell, its origins are placed amongst the ancient Britons of Strathclyde. However, the earliest Campbell in written records is Gillespie who is recorded in 1263. Early grants to Gillespie and his relations were almost all in east-central Scotland. However, the family’s connection with Argyll came some generations before when a Campbell married the heiress of the O’Duines and she brought with her the Lordship of Lochow. Because of this the early clan name was Clan O’Duine and this was later supplanted by the style Clan Diarmid. This name came from a fancied connection to Diarmid the Boar, a great hero from early Celtic mythology.

The original seat of the Clan Campbell was either Innis Chonnell Castle on Loch Awe or Caisteal na Nigheann Ruaidh on Loch Avich. The clan’s power soon spread throughout Argyll, however at first the Campbells were under the domination of the Lords of Lorne, chiefs of Clan MacDougall. The MacDougalls killed the Campbell chief Cailean Mór (Colin Campbell) in 1296. (See: Battle of Red Ford). All of the subsequent chiefs of Clan Campbell have taken MacCailean Mór as their Gaelic patronymic.

Between 1200 and 1500 the Campbells emerged as one of the most powerful families in Scotland, dominant in Argyll and capable of wielding a wider influence and authority from Edinburgh to the Hebrides and western Highlands. source: Wikipedia

Loch_Awe_Argyll, Scotland

One of the oldest Argyll clans, the Macarthurs owned lands around Loch Awe which was populated in close proximity with MacGregors, Campbells and Stewarts.

Clan Macarthur artefacts, including the four-poster state bed, are held at Inveraray Castle.

It was from Loch Awe and surrounding area that Clan Campbell established itself as a powerful family. In 1308, Robert the Bruce defeated the Clan MacDougall at the Battle of the Pass of Brander downstream from the loch.
