On May 23, 1998 I received confirmation of my subscription to the
Campbell digest. I also received my first digest V98 #50. Much to my
delight, it contained an e-mail containing information on the Campbells
of Breadlabane and Duncan of Auchinbreck, whom I have an interest in.
This email is to be continued in the next digest. But I have not
received another digest since. How do I go about correcting this? How
do I get the subsequent volumns? Thank you for you help.

Perth Amboy. In 1685, George Scot, Baird of Pitlochie, was given his liberty in Scotland provided he transported to East Jersey many of the Covenanters who had refused to take the oath of allegiance to a tyrannical and profligate ruler. Thus authorized, he proceeded to gather his company from those confined in the tolbooth of Leith. He had to give security to land them there prior to September, 1686, and the penalty was to be five| hundred merks in case of failure in any instance. In May, 1685, Scot chartered the Henry and Francis of New Castle, a ship of three hundred and fifty tons and twenty great ' guns, with Richard Hutton as master. ()n the eve of their banishment, twenty-eight of them signed the following conjunct testimony; bearing "That, now to leave their own native and Covenanted land by an unjust sentence of banishment for owning truth and. standing by duty, studying to keep their Covenants engagements and baptismal vows, whereby they stand obliged to resist and testify against all that is contrary to the Word of God and their Covenants; and that their sentence of banishment ran chiefly because they refused the oath of allegiance which in conscience they could not take, because in so doing they thought utterly declined the Lord Jesus Christ from having any power in His own house, and practically would; by taking it, sat, "He was not King and Head of His Church and over them consciences. And, on the contrary, this was to take and put in His room a man whose breath is in his nostrils; yea, a man who is a sworn enemy to religion; an avowed papist, whom, by our Covenants; we are bound to withstand and disown, and that agreeably to Scripture: When thou art come unto the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a King over me, like as all the nations that are about me, thou shalt in any wise set him King over thee, whom the Lord thy God shalt choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set King over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother. Deut. 17: 14-15. They then bore their testimony against the defections of the day, and for preaching in the fields and homes, and then signed their names. As Wodrow has given these names of the banished, we have thought it proper to insert them here. Their names are:
Died at sea
Left Scotland voluntarily
Rev William Aisdale
Rev. Archibald Riddell
Mr. Archibald Riddell
The charge for transportation was five pounds sterling for each adult and to each of those who were unable to pay for their passage was promised twenty-five acres of land and a suit of new clothes on the completion of four years of service; for children under twelve years of age, fifty shillings; sucking children free; one ton of goods, forty shillings. These have been known in
American History as "Redemptioners." Many of these passengers had endured much suffering. After some delay, the ship sailed from the road of Leith, September 5, 1685. We hear of no untoward event until after they had turned the Land's End," when a fever began to prevail with virulence, particularly among the prisoners who had been confined' in the great vault of Dunnotter. Many were sick when they came aboard, and the health of the others was endangered by the condition of the provisions laid in by the Captain. The meat began to putrefy and was not eatable, In a month the fever assumed a malignant type. Few escaped its ravages, and three or four bodies were cast overboard every day. Most of the ship's crew, except the Captain and boatswain, died. Pitlochie, who had freighted the ship, with his lady, died likewise, and so enjoyed nothing of the. gain of nearly one hundred prisoners gifted him by the Council, and upwards of seventy persons died at sea. Death and unwholesome food were not the only evils the unfortunate Covenanters had to encounter; the master of the ship was most cruel to the prisoners. Those who were placed under deck were not allowed to go about worship, and when they attempted it the Captain would throw down great planks of timber to disturb them and endanger their lives. The ship sprang a leak twice, and frequent storms added to their anxiety, After the death of Pitlochie, the prisoners fell into the hands of John Johnstone, his son-in-law Captain Hutton began to tamper with Mr. Johnstone, and urged him to carry the prisoners to Virginia or Jamaica, either places presenting better opportunity for disposing of them than New jersey, and offered as an inducement to charge himself with the disposal of the prisoners and to account to him for them in the productions of the country. But the wind changed and they were forced to sail straight for. New Jersey. They landed at Perth Amboy, New Jersey, in the
middle of December, '685, having been about fifteen weeks at sea.. Before going ashore, Johnstone endeavored to stop them by urging them to sign an agreement to serve four years at that place in consideration of the expense incurred by the departed Scot. This they would not agree to, but joined in another protest against their banishment and recounted their
harsh treatment during the voyage. When they came ashore, the people who lived on the coast and had not the gospel preached to them, were inhospitable and showed them no kindness. A little way up in the country, however, there was a town (supposed to be Woodbridge), and a minister settled, and the inhabitants were very kind to them. When they learned who the prisoners were and their circumstances, they invited all who were able to travel to come and live
with them, and sent horses far the rest, and entertained them freely and liberally that winter. In the following spring, John Johnstone pursued them and had them all cited before a legal tribunal of the Province. Alter hearing both sides, the Governor called a jury to sit and cognosce upon the affair, who found that the pannels had not of their own accord come to that ship, nor bargained with Pitlochie for money or service, and therefore, according to the laws of the country, they were assoiled. Those who had so agreed had their suits come before the Court of Common Rights, and Captain Hutton was remunerated. The prisoners then scattered throughout Eastern Pennsylvania, New York and Connecticut, where they were kindly entertained and found employment according to their different trades. At different times the persecuted Covenanters were banished to New Jersey, Delaware and South Carolina, but in the latter part of the seventeenth century this cruelty ceased. At this time no organized' society of Covenanters has an existence in New Jersey.
PATERSON. For some years previous to its organization into a congregation, a few, families of Covenanters resided in the city Of Paterson. They were usually supplied by the students of the Philadelphia Seminary and received the organization in the fall of 1818. The Rev. William L. Roberts was the first pastor ordained and installed in charge in May, 1824. The congregation was small and rent with factions, and he resigned charge in December, 1825. The Rev. William Gibson took charge, of the congregation in 1826, and was stated supply for several years. In 1833, the great majority of the members went into, the New School body, and the cause gradually declined. The few faithful followers of the Church were supplied but they lost their organization in October, 1836. Of the eldership were James W. King, John McIntire and Thomas Lindon.
was at the LDS library a couple of weeks ago doing research on my William
Campbell. I found where a William came over on the Constitution on May 1848

Rob Roy was much better than Braveheart! Braveheart, although
brilliant, was Hollywood to the bones. Rob Roy stirred my soul, it is far more
personal, being about an individual, and far more realistic- the Scottish
history is very sad! Rob Roy gets a 9, and Braveheart an 8.5.

In 1685 a number of people from Scotland, of religious known group known as the Coventers, refused to sign an oath of allegiance to the King of England. This followed the Scottish rebellion. These people were put into prison and later given as indentured servants to George Scot, Laird of Pitlochie on the condition that he export them to New Jersey before September of 1686. On the voyage over, most of the crew except the Captain and the boatswain died. In total about seventy souls died of some illness, including George Scot. Upon arrival in America in mid-December of 1685, the passengers disbursed over the country side and were not required to complete the indenture.
There were four Campbells who all survived the trip: 1)Robert Campbell, 2) David Campbell, 3) John Campbell, and 4) William Campbell.
Can anyone help identify who these four Campbell are?

My George LaFayette CAMPBELL was b/ 12 Mar 1830 in TN, d/ 8 Jun 1886 in
Gallant, Etowah Co., Alabama. He is buried at Conn Cemetery there. About
1855 he married Susan Kizer, daughter of Joseph Kizer and Anna
Fronabarger/Fronebarger, in Green Co., TN. Does ANYONE know ANYTHING
about who his parents are? I find several George CAMPBELL's in several
households in 1850, any of which could be him, but none of whom clearly
seem to be. This has been a dead end point for 30 years now. ANY help or
suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
I have been looking at George Lafayette Campbell for a couple of years now.
I had thought that he was a possible brother of my wife's g-g grandfather
Joshua Campbell who was born in Greene Co, Tennessee in 1832. Joshua is
listed in the 1850 census in the household of Jackson Campbell (possible
brother or cousin); there is also a George listed. The problem is that the
ages do not quite match up. As you know ages in census data are always
open to question and, in this case, if you switch George and Joshuas ages,
they would match up pretty well. The second problem is that Joshua moved
to Pulaski Co, Missouri in 1850 and it appears that this George moved as
However, I would still be interested in your George as a possible cousin.
There were several Campbells in Greene County, for which it is difficult to
find ancestors. For my Joshua, it has been postulated that his parents
were David Campbell and Barasheba (Bathsheba etc) Carter. David and
Barasheba were married in Greene County in 1818 (also the probable year of
the above-named Jackson's birth). David must have died in the early 1840's
as he is nowhere to be found after that. Barsheba is though - first in
Tennessee in 1850 and then in Missouri in 1860. She seems to be living
very close to James Campbell in 1860 which could be significant in that
James was also in Greene Co in 1850. I have supposed that James and David
Campbell were brothers.
I think the fact that David must have died (or perhaps abandoned the
family) in the early 1840's is what makes this family so hard to track.
Until 1850, census information was only mildly useful thus, without source
documents, it is hard to know who belongs to whom.
You have many, many years on me in tracking your Campbell's. But it has
been the most frustrating line that I have dealt with.
Let me know if anything looks familiar.

Re your msg of 21 May 98, same subject:
I have some familiarity with the William Campbell, cited in your msg,
who died testate in Augusta County VA in 1759. I have a copy of his will
and have often wondered if he was related to either the "White David"
(descendant of John Campbell and Grace Hay) or the "Black David"
(descendant of Alexander Campbell who died in 1753) Campbells of Augusta
County VA. However, I have never found any evidence which would support
William's connection with either of these branches of the Campbell Clan.
Accordingly, I consider it probable that this William Campbell (d. 1759)
is of another, entirely separate, branch of the Campbell Clan.
Margaret Campbell Pilcher (1843-1921) clearly states, in her book about
the Campbells, that William, the son of John Campbell and Grace Hay, died
in PA Colony and never married. Her book was published in 1911 and
copies are available at most major libraries. Mrs. Pilcher, the
daughter of Governor William Bowen Campbell of TN, is the principal,
published historian of the Southwest VA Campbells. I have found many
instances where I believe she has made errors, mainly with respect to the
Black David Campbell line. However, she appears to be much more accurate
concerning the White David line. This is mainly because she made
extensive use of the papers of another relative, Governor David Campbell
of VA, a grandson of White David. Governor Campbell of VA was a
meticululous researcher and it is mainly due to his work that the story
of John Campbell and Grace Hay (parents of White David) and their
descendants has survived. Governor Campbell's personal papers and other
documents are part of the Campbell Papers Collection (about 8,000
documents) located at Duke University, Durham NC.

I am trying to find the immediate family (father/mother/siblings) of a
Robert Campbell who was born c. 1756 and who may have been residing in
Kingston Pennsylvania c. 1776/1778. He may have been a law student at the
time - prior to joining the British forces during the American Revolution.
I am not sure of his birth place - but I believe it to be either
Pennsylvania or New Jersey.
Thank you for your help!
I am trying to find a source for information concerning members of The
BlackWatch Regiment around the 1760 era. I have recently heard a story
of how a relative came to North America. I have been told that there was
a Campbell relative who was in The BlackWatch Reg. and server in Haiti.
The group then came to Western Pennsylvania to fight the Indians. Part
of the story says that he serverd in the battle of Bushy Run in 1763. I
am trying to find a source for a regimental roster or in depth history
so as I can find this Campbell's full name.
I have made it back as far as F.(Francis) W. Campbell who was born in
1843 in Western PA. He is my gggrandfather. I am looking for the
connection between these two people.
Any help or information is greatly appreciated,

The Scottish Festival in SLC is being held on June 13, 1998, in Murray Park. You can pick up a flyer at the Edinburgh Castle located on 124 S. Main Street, SLC. The manager of the place said that the festivities (I think he also mentioned a parade) should probably start sometime around 9:00am.
Hope that helps!! =)
I am new to this list, but thought I'd throw my CAMPBELL line out
there to see what I can find. Mine is a tricky one. My grandfather,
Shelly Emmett Campbell, was born in Sullivan County, TN in 1896. On
the 1900 census for that region, I found him living with his aunt Mary
Shell. I found Mary's family, to which she has 3 other sister's, and
deduced that one of those was the mother of my Shelly. Which one I am
not sure. But the Campbell man who was the father is and has remained
a mystery. I know it is a stretch, but does anyone have a Campbell's
in this area at this timeframe? I figure either the Campbell man was
young and left after finding he was a daddy or he died at or around my
grandfather's birth. Any other suggestions about how I can track down
my namesake?? Thanks.
