This website presents an attempt to trace the Campbell Genealogy from the  Campbell Boys of Ithaca, New York back through the centuries in Scotland.  I  make no claim to the authenticity or accuracy of any relations or historical events  claimed herein, and it's a wonder I didn't list Prince William and Spare Harry as  siblings...

My interest in genealogy springs from my strong desire to sit on a throne,  anywhere's fine, with jesters and supplicants and concubines easing my passage  through a lordly existence.  Actually, my curiosity was piqued at Christmas  dinner 2006 when my brother Rory and I were reviewing the family history and  embellishing our primary school accomplishments when he informed me that our  grandfather had many siblings, whilst for years I was under the impression that  Grandpa Charles "Champagne Charlie" Campbell had one twin brother and no more.   Have you ever had a seismic paradigm shift in your perception of the world? Well I haven't either, but I was surprised to discover that the familial DNA had splashed  over the rim of the small gene pool I thought I had been swimming in since old enough to  misremember these things...

...and as improbable as it seems, the descendancy from Irish and Scottish Kings to the  Campbell boys of Ithaca may in fact exist, and if you subscribe to the theory that  we're all descended from monkeys then perhaps this doesn't tax the imagination  to any great extent...

The connection is through my great-grandmother ("The Duchess") Grace McIntyre's great- great grandmother Margaret Buchanan.  The original Buchanan ancestor to arrive on  the west coast of Scotland was a displaced Irish King, Dermod Buidh O'Cathan  (O'Kyan), King in Ulster, who was forced to flee Ireland in 1016 A.D. by the  invasion of Danes into Ireland.  Dermod is the great-great-great-great-great-great- great grandson of Aodh mac Domhnaill O'Neill, King Of Ireland. The interceding  antecedants were regional Kings and Princes of various districts in Ireland.   Dermod O'Cathan landed near Lennox, on the northern coast of Argyllshire, and  on at least two occasions assisted our 27x great-grandfather King Malcolm the  Second ("The Destroyer" - I ask you) in repelling Viking invasions into western  Scotland, for which he was granted lands in Scotland. Dermod's son, Anselan,  thus became Anselan Buidh O'Cathain, 1st of Buchanan. King Malcolm II and the  Campbell destinies nearly intersected eleven years earlier, when in 1005 A.D.  Malcolm murdered his cousin Kenneth III (King of Alba 997-1005), and for good  measure Kenneth's son Giric, on the north shore of Loch Monzievaird at the  Battle of Monzievaird, to gain access to the throne of Scotland. The battlefield is  abutted on all sides by the farmsteads Glenturret, Brae of Monzievaird, Locherlour and Currochs - all  farms 
 that Campbells and Gordons worked in the 18th, 19th, and 20th  centuries. Malcolm the Destroyer discouraged the aspirations of his relatives and  ruled for 29 long years largely by force of sword - and in keeping with Scottish  tradition, he relinquished his crown when he was murdered at Glamis in 1034. Ah,  the Scots.

Further consolidation of the Campbell Boys claim to a throne, somewhere, is our  descendency from Robert Bruce, King of Scots (1274-1329). We are descended  from two of his daughters. Marjory Bruce, who married Walter Stewart, 6th High  Steward of Scotland in 1315 and produced one child, a son, who would become  Robert II, King of Scots. King Robert II's birth was remarkable in that he was  delivered by caesarian section on March 2, 1316 after his mother Marjory was  thrown from a horse and died as a result of her injuries (or perhaps a hasty  caesarian section).  Robert II was the first Stewart King of Scots, and reigned  from 1371-1390.  From this lineage Robert the Bruce is our 20x great grandfather,  and his grandson Robert II is therefore our 18x great grandfather.  We are also  descended through a different line from his daughter Elizabeth Bruce.

The surname "Campbell" is believed to have originated with Dugald Campbell b.  1182 Lochawe, Argyll, Scotland. Dugald Campbell is thought to be the first of  this family to be called "Cam Beul", Gaelic for curved mouth, an appellation he  earned for his habit of speaking out of the side of his mouth. By the time his  grandson Great Colin and his great grandson Neil served with Robert the  Bruce the spelling of the surname was "Cambel".  Sir Cailean Mor (Great Colin)  Campbell of Lochawe and his son Sir Neil 'MacCailen Mor' Campbell were   warrior knights who fought alongside the Bruce at Bannockburn and in the Wars  for Scottish Independence with England.  The Campbells' allegiance to Bruce is in  part explained by the fact that they are thought to be cousins: Great Colin's maternal  grandfather is the brother of Robert the Bruce's paternal grandfather. Great Colin  was slain by an archer in a clan battle with the MacDougalls at the Battle of Red  Ford, Lorn in 1294. The battle was a consequence of a feud over coastal lands  between the two clans. At the time the MacDougalls were the rising power on the  West coast of Scotland, but their enmity with both the Campbells and Robert  Bruce resulted in several battles with the MacDougalls engaged against a Bruce  army populated with a large number of Campbells.  The MacDougalls were  ultimately defeated at the Battle of Pass of Brander in 1308, and Bruce rewarded  the Campbells for their allegiance by granting them most of the confiscated  MacDougall lands. Great Colin's son Sir Neil was rewarded for his loyalty with  land - and the Bruce's younger sister Mary's hand in marriage. The Campbells'  loyalty to Bruce and Sir Neil's sensible marriage were the genesis for the rise to  power of Clan Campbell in the western Isles and central Southern Highlands in  the late 1200's through the 1500's.

Another favorite son of Scotland, Robert Roy MacGregor (1671-1734), has a  connection to the Campbell Clan through his mother, Margaret Campbell.  Clan  MacGregor was proscribed by King James VI in 1603 - Rob Roy adopted his mother's surname and was  known throughout Balquhidder as Robert Campbell (the name was restored in 1774). Rob Roy's mother  also happens to be the sister of Captain Robert Campbell - yes THAT Capt. Robert Campbell, who in  February 1692 distinguished himself for the ages by leading an unfortunate misadventure at  Glencoe.

I was really impressed to discover that I am a regal sproutling sprung from royal  loins, until I fiddled with the math and discovered that I have roughly 1,048,000  20x great grandparents. Impossible!  In 1600 A.D. the population of Scotland was  only about 800,000 so how can I possibly have over 1 million 20x g-grandparents  in 1300 A.D.? Simple - inbreeding!  As you wander backwards in time and  ascend your ancestral tree a single person can occupy a position in multiple  ancestral lineages - so your 20x great grandfather through your mother's line may  be your 18x great grandparent through your father's lineage - and if you peruse  our relatives in the 18th and 19th centuries you will note at least two sets of first  cousins marrying - ergo they share the same grandparents - interesting to  contemplate, and surprising that we're not all six-fingered and cycloptic...

The earliest confirmed Campbell ancestor I am able to verify is Duncan Campbell  c.1739, a farmer at Coishavachan in Glen Lednock, who moved his family to  Braefordie about 1790. I also suspect that our Campbells are related to the  Campbells of Glenlyon that resided in and around Lawers, on the north side of  Loch Tay. These Campbells sold the land they owned in that area of Lochtayside  in 1637 to John Campbell of Edramuckie, collected some of the soil from there and  relocated to Strathearn, between Comrie and Crieff.  They deposited the soil on  their newly acquired land and dubbed the location "Lawers".  If you peruse an  old map of that area of Perthshire you will see two "Lawers" roughly 10 miles  apart and separated by Loch Tay. The Campbell origins in this region that are  confirmed from as early as ~1730 lead me to believe that we are descended from  the Breadalbane Campbells...

The surnames McNaughton and McIntyre also figure prominently in the last three  hundred years of the Campbells of Monzievaird, and we are direct descendants of the  Glenlyon McNaughtans and the McIntyres that married into the McNaughtan Clan.

There are four branches of the McNaughton Clan: McVicars, Mackays, Mcintaylors and  Urchy McNaughtons.  We are descendants of the Mcintaylor McNaughtons, as evidenced by  the listing of my GGGGG-grandfather John McNaughtan, who is listed as "John  McNaughtan alias Mcintaylor" on his daughter Katrine's OPR birth record in 1748.

From  ‘In Famed Breadalbane’  (chapter 30, pps 353-74) by the Rev William A Gillies (Second edition, 1980; reprinted 1987): MCNAUGHTON.  This is one of the oldest, if  not the very oldest Breadalbane surname. There were four branches of the clan on  Lochtayside, namely, the McVicars, the Mackays, the Mcintaylors, and the Urchy  McNaughtons.The Mcintaylor McNaughtons have occupied lands in the district of  Eddergoll for many centuries. Their names appear in the earliest Crown rentals. 1480,  Donald McNachtan occupied the Forty-shilling Land, or Balnacnaughton; 1541, Laggan  and Mill of Eddergoll let to John Tailyemoir, alias McNachtane; 1582, Mill of  Eddergoll let to Malcolm McNachtane and Donald Mcintailyemoir's wife; 1597, Duncan  McOnill VcEan, Balmacnaughton; 1623, Duncan McDonald, Balmacnaughton; 1627, John  McEntailyeour, Balnaskiag; 1769, John, Portbane; Daniel, Tomgarrow.

• From Chronicles. of Fortingall - " 1556, John Challar Moyr died at Eddergooyllyt on  27th of September, and was buried at Inchaden, on the eve of St. Michael the  Archangel."

Alexander McNaughton, son of John, tenant in Portbane, took over the Waulkmill at  Remony in. succession to William Murray about 1780. He also began the dyeing of  cloth, and thus he and his descendants came to be styled locally as "An  Dafhadair" "The Dyer."

There is a notable dearth of the members of Clan McDonald and Clan MacDougall... 

Our ancestors from Aberdeen include many members of the families of Gordon, Wallace and Innes.  (MORE)

There have been other surprises - at least five of gggxgrandfather Duncan  Campbell's (c.1739) thirteen children emigrated from Perthshire to New York State  in the early and mid 1800's. Son Daniel Campbell was apparently the first  Campbell to emigrate from Scotland to America in 1797, when he left Perthshire  for Upstate New York. Son Duncan (b. 1790), a physician and Presbyterian  minister, returned to Lochlane, Perthshire from Caledonia, New York in 1860,  twenty years after he emigrated from Scotland to the United States in 1839. Henry,  John and Daniel farmed in Madison, Montgomery, Herkimer and Schenectady Counties in  upstate New York, and sister Christian was a nurse in New York City.  Henry and  Christian died without marrying or producing offspring, but John has many  desdendants farming that area to this day.  Another son, Peter, was a wine  merchant in London. Our great-great-grandfather Samuel Campbell, the youngest  of the 13 children, farmed in Perthshire his entire life, and consequently Dad was  born in Perthshire and not New York State.

The following excerpts are from "The Black Watch - The Formation" at www.electricscotland.com:

"We can boast no Battle Honours for our part in the American War of  Independence, because it was rightly decreed that Battle Honours should not be  granted for a war with our own kith and kin."
 -- The Black Watch

The design of rendering such a valuable class of subject available to the state by  forming regular military corps out of it, seems not to have entered into the views  of the government till about the year 1729, when six companies of Highlanders  were raised, which, from forming distinct corps unconnected with each other,  received the appellation of independent companies. Three of these companies  consisted of 100 men each, and were therefore called large companies; Lord  Lovat, Sir Duncan Campbell of Lochnell, and Colonel Grant of Ballindalloch, were  appointed captains over them. The three smaller companies, which consisted of  75 each, were commanded by Colonel Alexander Campbell of Finab, John  Campbell of Carrick, and George Munro of Culcairn, under the commission of  captain-lieutenants. To each of the six companies were attached two lieutenants  and one ensign. To distinguish them from regular troops, who, from having  coats, waistcoats, and breeches of scarlet cloth, were called Saighdearan  Dearg, or Red soldiers; the independent companies, who were attired in tartan  consisting mostly of black, green, and blue, were designated Am Freiceadan  Dubh, or Black Watch, from the somber appearance of their dress. While the  regular British soldiers wore brilliant red coats, the Scotsmen of the Independent  Companies wore a sombre tartan of dark colours and because of this had been  dubbed the "Black Watch".  It is similar to the Clans Campbell tartan, which  formed most of the original Black Watch.

As the services of these companies were not required beyond their own territory,  and as the intrants were not subjected to the humiliating provisions of the  disarming act, no difficulty was found in forming them; and when completed,  they presented the singular spectacle of a number of young men or respectable  families serving as privates in the ranks. "Many of the men who composed these  companies were of a higher station in society than that from which soldiers in  general are raised; cadets of gentlemen's families, sons of gentlemen farmers, and  tacksmen, either immediately or distantly descended from gentlemen's families, -  men who felt themselves responsible for their conduct to high-minded and  honorable families, as well as to a country for which they cherished a devoted  affection. In addition to the advantages derived from their superior rank in life,  they possessed, in an eminent degree, that of a commanding external deportment,  special care being taken in selecting men of full height, well proportioned, and of  handsome appearance.

The duties assigned to these companies were to enforce the disarming act, to  overawe the disaffected, and watch their motions, and to check depredations. For  this purpose they were stationed in small detachments in different parts of the  country, and generally throughout the district in which they were raised. Thus  Fort Augustus and the neighboring parts of Inverness-shire were occupied by  the Frasers under Lord Lovat; Ballindalloch and the Grants were stationed in  Strathspey and Badenoch; the Munros under Culcairn, in Ross and Sutherland;  Lochnell's and Carrick's companies were stationed in Athole and Breadalbane,  and Finab's in Lochaber, and the northern parts of Argyleshire among the  disaffected Camerons and Stewarts of Appin. All Highlanders of whatever clan  were admitted indiscriminately into these companies as soldiers; but the officers  were taken, almost exclusively from the whig clans.

The independent companies continued to exist as such until the year 1739, when  government resolved to raise four additional companies, and to form the while  into a regiment of the line. For this purpose, letters of service, dated 25th October  1739, were addressed to the Earl of Crawford and Lindsay, who was appointed to  the command of the regiment about to be formed, which was to consist of 1000  men. Although the commissions were dated as above, the regiment was not  embodied till the month of May 1740, when it assembled on a field between  Taybridge and Aberfeldy, in Perthshire, under the number of the 43d regiment,  afterwards changed to the 42d, but still bearing the name of the Black Watch.  "The uniform was a scarlet jacket and waistcoat, with buff facings and white lace,  - tartan plaid of twelve yards plaited round the middle of the body, the upper part  being fixed on the left shoulder ready to be thrown loose, and wrapped over both  shoulders and firelock in rainy weather. At night the plaid served the purpose of  a blanket, and was sufficient covering for the Highlander. These were called  belted plaids from being kept tight to the body by a belt, and were worn  on guards, reviews, and on all occasions when the men were in full dress. On this  belt hung the pistols and dirk when worn. In the barracks, and when not on duty,  the little kilt or philibeg was worn, a blue bonnet with a border of white, red and  green, arranged in small squares to resemble, as is said, the fess chque in the  arms of the different branches of the Stewart family, and a tuft of feathers, or  sometimes, from economy or necessity, a small piece of black bear-skin. The arms  were a musket, a bayonet, and a large basket-hilted broadsword. These were  furnished by government. Such of the men as chose to supply themselves with  pistols and dirks were allowed to carry them, and some had targets after the  fashion of their country. The sword-belt was of black leather, and the cartouch- box was carried in front, supported by a narrow belt round the middle".

The following excerpts are from the Clan Campbell Society of North America's  website:

THE HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND

Geographers divide Scotland into two main regions, "Highland" and "Lowland"  calling the border between the two areas the "Highland Line". The line runs  roughly from Dumbarton on the Clyde in the southwest and follows the edge of  the high country northeast into Aberdeenshire. The Highlands lie west and the  Lowlands east of that line. All of Argyll, the county in which the Campbell family  came to have the seat of their power, lies within the Highlands.

The difference between the cultures of the two areas increased with time as  Lallans, or Lowland English, replaced the Gaelic (pronounced by Gaelic speakers  as "Gahlic") as the common language in the Lowlands. Today the Gaelic survives  in some of the outer islands but few speakers remain on the mainland.

Generally the Lowlands have richer farmland and all the industrial towns. In the  Highlands the majority of the land is above the timber-line, with poor grazing  among the heather and higher tundra. Much land in the valleys is wet or rocky  and weather conditions are harsh. For social and political reasons much is made  of early 19th century "clearances" from the Highlands and Islands, however  certainly in Argyll, most people with initiative, even if little means, left of their  own free will as richer lands overseas became available for settlement.

 CAMPBELLS ANCESTORS IN ARGYLL

Argyll is a county of about 100 miles in length north to south and slightly less in  width. Including the inhabited islands, the coastline is over 1,000 miles in length.  Tradition holds that the first of the Campbell ancestors (still not yet called  Campbell) who came into Argyll married Eva, daughter of Paul an Sporran and the  heiress of the O'Duibne tribe on northwestern Lochawe. This ancestor may well  have first been established in Argyll as a follower of the Earl of the neighboring  Lennox when Alexander II, king of Scots, marched into Argyll to ensure the  loyalty of its people. Alexander is said by Fordun, a Medieval writer, to have  visited Argyll in 1222, and this period for a Campbell ancestral arrival on Lochawe  is supported by the Gaelic genealogies and later charters. The first of the name  Cambel (the original spelling) who can be found in the surviving records was one  who owned lands near Stirling in 1263. The earliest written date for a Cambel in  Argyll is that for Duncan Dubh, landowner in Kintyre in 1293. The first date  which survives for the Cambels on Lochawe is that for the killing of Sir Cailein  Mor (Great Colin) of Lochawe in 1296 when he was attacked by men of the  Clan Dougall on the Stringe of Lorne. His family had been long established on  Lochawe and at that time at least two other Cambels owned land in Argyll; Sir  Duncan Dubh and Sir Thomas in Kintyre.

ORIGINS OF THE CAMPBELLS

Like most Europeans, the Scots are a blend of races: Neolithic survivors mixed  with Celtic "Pict", Britonic Celt incomers, Celtic "Scots" invaders from Ireland,  Viking and Norse raiders and settlers, Norman and Flemish knights and even  some few Angles in the south. All these joined to add their genes to this sturdy  race of people. Until cures for Scurvy (vitamin deficiency) and Smallpox were  discovered in the 18th century, the people's hardiness was ensured by the  survival of the fittest.

Like most Scots, all Campbells are a blend of races through maternal ancestry,  although there were times from the 16th through the 18th centuries when, among  some leading families in Argyll and Perthshire, they had grown so numerous as  frequently to intermarry, intensifying their characteristics as a kin. Many also  share the Scots Gaelic blood of the Dalriadic O'Duibne people whose heiress their  ancestor married on Lochawe in the 13th century.

Their paternal ancestry is apparently from the Britonic Celts of Strathclyde,  sometimes called the "Romano British" from the northwestern part of the  early "Kingdom of Strathclyde".

The capital of Strathclyde was Al Cluit or DunBriton (now Dumbarton Rock) in  the area known as the Lennox. According to legend, here in An Talla Dearg, the  Red Hall of Dun Briton, was born the first ancestor of the Campbells who appears  in all three of the early Gaelic genealogies; Smervie or Mervyn, son of an Arthur,  who became known as "the Wildman of the Woods", perhaps being a notable  hunter. If the legend is based upon a real character, he likely lived in the eleventh  or twelfth century. However those names at that period can have absolutely no  actual connection with the legendary Arthur, whose possible existence is said to  have been many centuries earlier. The name Campbell did not come into use until  several generations later.

THE CAMPBELL NAME

It was Sir Cailein Mor Campbell's grandfather Dugald on Lochawe who is said to  have been the first given the nickname "Cam Beul" since he apparently had the  engaging trait of talking out of one side of his mouth. Cam beul means curved  mouth in the Gaelic. This Duncan was so much loved by his family that they took  his nickname as their family name and held to it even beyond Argyll.

The spelling of the surname (family name) was originally Cambel. Then when  Robert the Bruce's son King David came to the throne as King of Scots he  brought with him a number of Norman knights to whom he gave lands in an  attempt to introduce Norman efficiency in administration. David had been at the  English court and admired the Norman system of feudalism. The use of the  spelling "Campbell" may perhaps have been as a result of Norman rather than  Gaelic scribes attempting to write the Gaelic name.

The name Cambel was first used by the family in the 13th century. The first chief  of the clan to appear on record as "Campbell" may well have been Sir Duncan of  Lochawe when he was created Lord Campbell in 1445

THE CLAN CAMPBELL

Clan means family group in the Gaelic. There came to be roughly three uses of the  word clan: for the large clans like Clan Campbell, Clan Donald and Clan Gordon;  for the smaller clans like Clan Callum or Clan Lachlan; for the sub-clans or name  groups within the larger clans like Clan Tavish or Clan Arthur (the McTavishes  of Dunardry and McArthurs of Tirevadich).

The idea of all members of a clan being of one name is a Victorian misconception.  Clans begin to emerge as recognizable units in the 12th and 13th century. Initially  the Chief and the Chief's close kin were the leaders of the clan while their  followers were the local people who were their tenants or who looked to them for  leadership in defense. So while the Clan Campbell were led by Campbells, until  about the 18th century, many of their followers, and sometimes even they  themselves often used patronymics or father's names.

Patronymics lie behind many modern Scottish family names, particularly those  now beginning with the 'Mac' or 'Mc' prefix, meaning 'son of'. Further, in early  records these sometimes appear with 'Vic', meaning 'grandson of'. For example  Archibald MacDougall V'Gillespic (Gaelic for Archibald) was Archibald son of  Dougall son of Archibald. Sometimes, such as in the 16th century, such names  might even appear followed by 'alias Campbell'. In modern times families who  were not of Campbell origin yet who had long given their allegiance to the Chief  of the clan have come to be called "septs".

CAMPBELL TARTAN

An excellent and authoritative book has been written on Campbell tartans and  every Campbell family should have one in their reference library. The Campbell  tartan authorized by the Chief as appropriate for all of Clan Campbell is known in  the clan as Campbell tartan and in the trade by various names; "ancient  Campbell", "Black Watch", "ancient Black Watch". The colors are ONLY green,  black and blue. The shades or tones of the colors may vary from different  weavers but the choice of these is a matter for your taste.

Almost all published books on Scottish clans and Tartans, with the exception of  the second edition of that by the late Sir Ian Moncreiffe, have errors in their  illustrations for Clan Campbell. The confusion results from asking the weavers  instead of the Chiefs about which is their clan's tartan.

There are other specific tartans authorized for descendants of the Loudoun,  Breadalbane and Cawdor branches of Clan Campbell. The trade has not created  the same deliberate or thoughtless confusion about these, although they may be  hard to find.

"Argyle", with white and yellow lines, and "Dress", with areas of white, are NOT  authorized tartans, although the Argyle is heavily promoted by the trade. Those  who already posess non-authorized tartans should not hesitate to wear them.  However if innocently stuck with those, you may like to wear a tie, plaid or scarf  of authorized tartan so as to show your loyalty to the authority of Clan Campbell  and in order to be able to show others the right tartan to buy. That is for you to  choose.

Flower of Scotland

(Written by Roy Williamson of "The Corries")

Although "Flower of Scotland" is not a traditional song, it has been adopted as  Scotland's de facto national anthem, along with "Scotland the Brave"

O Flower of Scotland,
 When will we see
 Your like again,
 That fought and died for,
 Your wee bit Hill and Glen,
 And stood against him,
 Proud Edward's Army,
 And sent him homeward,
 Tae think again.

The Hills are bare now,
 And Autumn leaves 
 lie thick and still,
 O'er land that is lost now,
 Which those so dearly held,
 That stood against him,
 Proud Edward's Army,
 And sent him homeward,
 Tae think again.

Those days are past now,
 And in the past 
 they must remain,
 But we can still rise now,
 And be the nation again,
 That stood against him,
 Proud Edward's Army,
 And sent him homeward,
 Tae think again.

0 Flower of Scotland,
 When will we see
 your like again,
 That fought and died for,
 Your wee bit Hill and Glen,
 And stood against him,
 Proud Edward's Army,
 And sent him homeward,
 Tae think again.

I would like to thank my uncle, Brian Craik, 
 who has done extensive research on the Craik/Dowey/Tinsley/Kelly side of the  family - almost all my information is borrowed directly from his efforts - thank  you, Brian!

I would like to acknowledge Mary Payne, a Campbell relation presently living in  Tennessee, for all the information she has provided in connecting the Campbell  relatives, particularly more recent Campbells and the descendents of Duncan  Campbell (b.1742) - thank you!
