Egle's view of the line of John Campbell



Ancestry

John Campbell (205) is considered to be the immigrant Patriarch of a line of Campbells that settled first in Old Chester Pennsylvania, perhaps as early as 1726, and who moved west and south into the Valley of Virginia by 1742. The family is often connected by genealogists to the Campbell's of Argyll, Scotland, but the nature of the connection, if any, is obscure. There is also a view that the family line emigrated from Scotland to north Ireland around 1600. Different genealogists place them in different parts of North Ireland, both east and west of Londonderry. Some place the line at the Drumabold townland, Kilmacrenan, Donegal. The family oral history of the Drumabold Campbells identifies two waves of immigration, one in the first part of the 18th century, and one to the first part of the 19th century. In this view it is the first wave that came to settle in the Valley of Virginia. These stories may be simply apocryphal, and whether they have any bearing on the line of John Campbell (205), the Patriarch, is not clear. In any case, references to the line of the Argyll Campbells, Drumabold Campbells, etc. should be taken with a grain of salt. The following is one interpretation of the lineage.

The American branch of this Campbell family, who settled in Pennsylvania in 1726 before relocating to Augusta County by 1738, claim descent from the Campbell's of Inveraray, Argyll, Scotland (Source:Draper, 1881). This corresponds to the line of descent for the Drumaboden Campbells, as given in Source:Campbell, 1925.  The later source does not make mention of the children of Duncan Campbell, and further work is needed to confirm this connection.  However, the marriage of a Duncan Campbell in Kilmacrenan in 1652 has good correspondance with both Campbell, 1925, and with the dates for the first generation of the Campbells who settled in Lancaster and Augusta 1726 and 1738.  Further work is needed to confirm these relations.

Overview

According to Source:Draper, 1881:

The Campbell family....were originally from Inverary, Argyllshire, connected with the famous Campbell clans of the Highlands of Scotland; and emigrated to Ireland near the close of the reign of Queen Elizabeth—about the year 1600. The northern portion of Ireland received, at that period, large accessions of Scotch Protestants, who proved valuable and useful citizens. Here the Campbells continued to live for several generations, until at length John Campbell, with a family of ten or twelve children, removed to America in 1726, and settled first in Donegal, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where we find one of his sons, Patrick Campbell, born in 1690, serving as a constable in 1729. About 1730, John Campbell, with three of his sons, Patrick among them, removed from Pennsylvania to what was then a part of Orange, now Augusta County, in the rich valley of Virginia.[4] Another authority assigns 1738 as the time of this migration.[5]

Orange County records (Source:Waddell, 1888 identify 1741 estate records for a John Campbell. These records are presumably for John (205) who is often given a 1741 DOD by genealogists, though a 1734 DOD us also given by some, as is a 1771 DOD. Grace is usually given a 1741 DOD by many genealogists, but others believe she lived on until 1771. The basis for the alternative DOD's for John, and all of the DOD's for Grace, has not been determined. While Augusta County records for their children (as identified by Draper, 1881) are identifiable in Chalkley's Chronicles, that work gives no records that can be clearly identified with John (205), and no records for a Grace or Grizzel Campbell. It may be that this couple lived in the portion of Orange County east of the Blue Ridge, that was not included in Augusta when that county formed in 1745. It seems likely, however, that John (205) died before the formation of Augusta, and likely died no later than 1741.

  2. John Campbell is variously described as coming from Drumboden or Drumaboden, Kilmachrenan or Kilmacrenan, Donegal, Ireland. Drumaboden is a townland in Derry. Kilmacrenan is a nearby village. The village may or may not be in the townland. "Drumboden" could also refer to an estate name, in or near Kilmacrenan.

    See:Drumaboden Townland When viewed July 5 2011 this page provided a map showing the location of Drumaboden Townland as immediately northeast of Kilmacrenan. This was the only match obtained for a Google search of "Drumaboden Townland"

  3. Source:Waddell, 1888 gives the following in Annals of August County: William Thompson qualified as administrator of John Campbell in 1741, John Lewis security. The decedent was the ancestor of Colonel
    Arthur Campbell, General William Campbell and many others
    . This would seem to show that John Campbell died in 1741, or perhaps the previous year. That this refers to John (205) seems to be confirmed by the reference to descendants Arthur and William Campbell

  6. The difference in date of immigration is significant in terms of understanding the family connections of the various Campbells in the area. An early 1730's migration date to the Valley of Virginia might imply a connection to the Campbells who intermarried with the extended family of Person:Michael Woods (1). This family is known to have come from Cumberland County, PA, through the Valley of Virginia, about 1733, and is present on the east side of the Blue Ridge (Albemarle County, Woods Gap) by 1734. On the otherhand, if the migration date was 1738, then the family of John Campbell (205), would most likely not be connected to the Campbells who married into the Wood family. Rather, this migration date might imply a connection to the Wigton Walker line who are believed to have come from the Chester, PA/Cecil County/MD area about that date, to settle on Borden's Grant. John Campbell, a soninlaw of John Walker II and Katherine Rutherford of the Wigton Walker line, is also said to be connected to the Argyll line of Campbells. Source:White, 1902. Perhaps signficantly, the Wigton Walkers are said to have immigrated from Ireland in 1726.
