Sir James Campbell, 5th Baronet of Auchinbreck (1679 - ) was the son of Sir Duncan Campbell of Auchinbreck, 4th Bt. and Lady Henrietta Lindsay. He married,
1) Janet MacLeod, daughter of Ian 'Breac' Macleod of Macleod, 18th Chief and Florence Macdonald.
2) Susan Campbell, daughter of Sir Archibald Campbell of Calder.
3) Margaret Campbell, daughter of unknown Campbell of Carradale.
He died on 14 October 1756 at Lochgair, Argyllshire, Scotland. He held the office of Member of Parliament Scotland between 1702 and 1707. He held the office of Member of Parliament from 1707 to 1708. Thirty years later came the upheaval of the Forty Five Rebellion. Less wise than in 1715, the chief heritor of North Knapdale, Sir James Campbell of Auchinbreck had been "in correspondence with the Pretender, and in 1741 had been one of the "sept seigneurs ecossais" who signed the assurance to Cardinal Fleury that Scotland would rise in support of a Franco-Jacobite invasion. In conspiracy with Auchinbreck was Dugald MacTavish younger of Dunardry and treasonable correspondence existed between the two men.

It never ceases to amaze me that so much misinformation is floating around out there on our family line.

There is some other false information that needs to be cleared up. Mary Campbell b. 1688 d. 1762 who married Michael Woods b. 1684 d. 1762 is not the daughter of Sir James Campbell of Auchinbreck by his second wife Susan Campbell. The Clan Campbell Society Genealogist has checked out this information for several the descendants who are members of the Society. Mary Campbell was born in 1688, Sir James Campbell od Auchinbreck was only 6 or 7 years of age at the time of her birth, he died 14 Oct 1756 at the age of 74, this would make the date of his birth as 1681 or 1682. Records indicate he was married to Lady Susan Campbell by 18 Dec 1717.

There are several other theories floating around there that have also been disproved. The CCSNA is very much interested in the mystery that surrounds our Mary, they are also very anxious to unravel the story of her parents and ancestors.

Someone has noted that her name may be Mary Catherine Campbell, does anyone have any records that would indicate this name is correct? I have also seen the name Margaret used.

I agree that we need to help stem the ongoing flow of misinformation that exists about this line.
