Overview

Patrick Campbell first appears in Old Augusta in 1738 when he secures a parcel of 1,546 acres on Beverley Manor

Pages 109-111. 20-21 Feb. 1738 [1739]. William Beverley of Essex County, Gent. to Patrick Campbel of Augusta County. Lease and release; for ₤44.7.7 current money. 1,546 acres, part of the Mannor of Beverley in Augusta County... on the south side of the south river of Shenandoah, a corner of the pattent... (signed) W. Beverley. Wit: Henry Willis, Hen. Downs, John Lewis. 22 Feb. 1738 [1739]. Acknowledged by William Beverley, Gent. [Orange County Deed Book 3, pg. 8]. Source:Chalkley's Chronicles

A few years later, he swears an oath of importation, apparently in order to procure "headlights" to additional land, in Orange County, identifying his wife as Elizabeth, and indicating several children.

Transcript:Orange County Importations listed in Scott, 1907

The phrasing "Patrick Campbell for himself and Elizabeth" is our first indication that the name of his wife was "Elizabeth". While Elizabeth's surname is commonly given as Taylor, the basis for this is unknown. Subsequently land records, confirm Elizabeth as his wife:

Augusta County, Virginia Deed Book 4, page 223. - Patrick Campbell, Sr., and Elizabeth, to Patrick Campbell, Jr., 212 acres. From Beverley to Patrick, Sr., 21st February, 1738; Wm. Thompson's line; Samuel Braford's and John Mitchel's lines; corner John Ward; corner Charles Campbell. Crossing Christian's Creek and South River. Teste: David Hay, Arthur Hamilton, 20 May, 1752.

However, by 1754 it is clear that Elizabeth has died and Patrick has remarried to "Elinor"

Page 308.—15th May. 1754. Patrick Campbell. Sr.', and Elinor to son John Campbell. Patrick had purchased from Beverley 1,546 acres in Beverley Manor by deed 21st February, 1738. recorded in Orange; conveyance paternal love, good will and affection; 270 acres of the 1,546 acres, corner Patrick Campbell, Jr., in Wm. Thompson's line; Charles Campbell's line</font>


Patrick is said to have died 17 MAR 1767, but the basis for this is not known. We do, however, know that he died sometime before May, 1777, when his son Patrick and wife Agnes sell his fathers original land purchase of February 1738. This is at least consistent with the stated 1767 DOD.

Family

A number of lines of Campbells in Old Augusta, especially on Beverley's Manor, trace their lineage to the sons of Duncan Campbell and Mary McCoy. Evidence that Duncan and Mary were actually their parents, has not come to hand, and given the issues associated with this couple, the connection may be apocryphal.

Child List

Modern genealogists commonly identify a number of children for Patrick Campbell. His 1740 importation oath, as well as certain land records, confirm some of these children. Other children are included in the importation record, but are not commonly identified by genealogists, while other person identified by genealogists as children of this couple are not confirmed by records found to date.

Bio

From Source:Draper, 1881:

The Campbell family, from which the hero of King's Mountain [4]descended, 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, Person:John Campbell (205), 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.[5]Another authority assigns 1738 as the time of this migration.[6]

Among the children of Patrick Campbell, who thus early settled in Western Virginia, was Person:Charles Campbell (31), who seems to have been born in Ireland before the removal of the family to the New World. He became a prominent and efficient pioneer of the Augusta Valley. He early married a Miss Buchanan, whose father, John Buchanan, Sr., had figured in the wars of Scotland; and from this union sprang William Campbell, who subsequently led the Scotch-Irish patriots of the Holston Valley against Ferguson at King's Mountain.

Drumaboden

The Drumabodan Campbells claim descent from a Hugh Campbell, a grandson of Colin, 6th Earl of Agyll. According to Source:Campbell, 1925 Hugh left Scotland in 1661 and settled in the Kilmacrenan Parish, on the River Lennon, about 1661, naming their farm "Drumabodan" for "some place in Scotland".[7] Several of Hugh's grandsons, including Patricks father, John Campbell (205), left Ireland for America about 1726, settling in Lancaster PA. Patrick appears on Beverleys Manor, in what is now Augusta County VA, by 1738, when he acquired several tracts of land, including one of 1538 acres.

Thompson's line; Charles Campbell's line</font>
Land records indicate that Patrick married at least twice.[8]In May of 1752 Patrick and wife Elizabeth transfer a 212 acre parcel, apparently part of his initial 1546 acre tract, to son Patrick Junior:
Augusta County, Virginia Deed Book 4, page 223. - Patrick Campbell, Sr., and Elizabeth, to Patrick Campbell, Jr., 212 acres. From Beverley to Patrick, Sr., 21st February, 1738; Wm. Thompson's line; Samuel Braford's and John Mitchel's lines; corner John Ward; corner Charles Campbell. Crossing Christian's Creek and South River. Teste: David Hay, Arthur Hamilton, 20 May, 1752.
But two years later Patrick and wife Elinor make a similar transfer to son John:
Page 308.—15th May. 1754. Patrick Campbell. Sr., and Elinor to son John Campbell. Patrick had purchased from Beverley 1,546 acres in Beverley Manor by deed 21st February, 1738. recorded in Orange; conveyance paternal love, good will and affection ; 270 acres of the 1,546 acres, corner Patrick Campbell, Jr., in Wm. Thompson's line; Charles Campbell's line
Patrick is said to have died 17 MAR 1767, but the basis for this is not known. We do, however, know that he died sometime before May, 1777, when his son Patrick and wife Agnes sell his fathers original land purchase of February 1738. This is at least consistent with the stated 1767 DOB.

  2. John's father is commonly identified as Duncan Campbell, of Drumabodan, Kilmacracan, Donegal, Ireland. John is said to have immigrated to America about 1726. If John is the son of Duncan as is widely believed, his son Patrick (b. 1696) would have been born in Donegal.
