Person talk:John Campbell (205)


Descendancy [3 July 2011]

From:Wikipedia:Earl of Brealbane and Holland

Lord Breadalbane and Holland's elder son Duncan Campbell, styled Lord Ormelie, was overlooked for the succession (owing to his "incapacity") and died childless in 1727. Breadalbane nominated his younger son John as his successor, and he consequently succeeded in the titles on his father's death in 1717. He sat in the House of Lords as a Scottish Representative Peer between 1736 and 1747.

If the above is accepted, the lineage currently (July 3 2011) given for the Campbells of Old Augusta would appear to be in error.--Q 11:05, 3 July 2011 (EDT--Q 11:07, 3 July 2011 (EDT)

In the later part of the reign of Queen Elizabeth, Duncan Campbell, son of Dugal Campbell of In- verary, and an officer in the English army, went from Scotland to Ireland. In the year 1612 for- feitures of large estates were declared in Ulster, some of the forfeited lands being bought by Duncan Campbell. In 1726, John Campbell and Mary Camp- bell, two of his descendants emigrated to America. John Campbell, with his wife and children, first settled in Pennsylvania, moving from Lancaster County, about 1730, to Virginia. Mary Campbell, his sister, married Moses White, from which mar- riage many families of the southern and western part of the country are descended.

Robert and Dugal Campbell removed from Penn- sylvania to Orange County, Virginia, and Patrick, Robert and David Campbell, sons of John Campbell, went to St. Mark's parish, Orange County, between 1732 and 1741. Subsequently Patrick Campbell settled in Augusta County, Virginia. Other records of Virginia at this period show that, in 1738, sur- veys of land in Augusta County were had by Robert Campbell and Patrick Campbell; also that, in 1746, James Campbell was the owner of 570 acres of land in the same county. Charles Campbell and Hugh Campbell also settled in Virginia at this time.

In 1720 Samuel Campbell is recorded as a land- owner in the Scottish settlement in the northern part of New London township, Pennsylvania, and in the same year Patrick Campbell took up land in Conistoga or Donegal township, Pennsylvania, and was connected with the Derry Church in 1724. In 1729, on the erection of Lancaster County, he was the first constable of Donegal township. Between 1735 and 1739 warrants for land in Lancaster County and Philadelphia were granted to the follow- ing bearers of the name : Andrew Campbell, 1735 ; John Campbell, 1736 ; William Campbell, 1738 ; and David Campbell, 1737-39.--Q 18:02, 5 July 2011 (EDT)
