New Kent County Records
The Colonial Records of New Kent County were destroyed by a fire in 1787,
which was set by John Price Posey, for which he was hanged. It was the
greatest loss suffered because the early records of many counties were in the
New Kent Clerk's Office: King and Queen, 1654-1691; King William County,
1654 to 1691; Hanover County, 1654 to 1721; Louisa County, 1654 to 1728; and
part of Caroline County, 1654 to 1691. (Caroline Co., Va. was formed in 1728
from Essex, King and Queen, and King William Counties. King and Queen Co.,
Va. was formed from New Kent Co., Va. in 1691, and King William Co., Va.
was formed in 1702 from King and Queen Co., VA.) The records for New Kent
between 1787 and 1864 were burned at the time the village of New Kent
Courthouse suffered a disastrous fire. The records for New Kent since 1864 are
intact and are in good condition. (Contributed by Raymond W. Ryan - Powhatan,
I am looking for any info, guidance and help on my Campbell ancestors. I know my great grandfather, Donald Charles McGregor Campbell (1861 - 1936) was born in Ardchattan, Argyll, Scotland and died in London, Ontario. His father was also Donald Charles McGregor Campbell (1815-1888) was born in Kinloch Rannoch, Fortingall and died in Rhugarve, Barcaldine. His father was Duncan Campbell believed born about 1776 but location unknown. Duncan's father was John Campbell. John's father was John "Iain Og" Campbell. Father of John "Iain Og" was also John. Father of this John was Donald "Bahn". Father of Donald "Bahn" was John "Dubh" Campbell. All names past my great grandfather is taken from his will. It appears that the names used follow Scottish tradition which means that my ancestors were probably the oldest male child in most cases. I do not know the name of the ship that brought them out, where it sailed from nor the date of emigration. I have been able to locate some descendants of my great grandfather's siblings in Canada and the US but no one know any more beyond the information above. Can anyone help me fill in the blanks regarding spouses, dates, locations, etc.?
