Clan Campbell Famous Lineage

SCOTLAND-All McGee Side Direct lineage

The Campbell’s come originally from Scotland, the northern part of Great Britain. Geographically, Great Britain and Ireland are a collection of islands off the Atlantic coast of Europe. The Romans, who invaded Britain in about 43 AD, called the central part of what is now Scotland ‘Caledonia’ and the early Celtic inhabitants they called Picts. The Picts called their land to the north of the Forth and Clyde estuaries ‘Alba’. By 200 AD the Romans had left the north and in 500 AD Scots from Ireland took over Argyll, the southwestern part of the Scottish Highlands, calling their new kingdom Dalriada and eventually overcoming the Picts. After King Kenneth MacAlpin joined the leadership of Alban Picts and Dalriadic Scots into one kingdom in about 843 AD, the name Scotland evolved. Kings of Scots (never “Kings of Scotland”) ruled from 843, barring a few English invasions, until 1603. On that date James VI of Scots, son of Mary Queen of Scots, inherited the throne of England on the death of Henry VIII’s daughter Queen Elizabeth (who was without children), and so James became James VI of Scots and I of EUSA

Thomas Somerville, 1st Lord Somerville, (d. 1434), was a Lord of the Parliament of Scotland. In 1423 Thomas Somerville, as Lord of Carnwath, came to London as an ambassador to treat for the release of James I of Scotland, who had been captive in England for many years. Somerville was also recorded as a Warden of the Scottish Borders in 1424. As Somerville of that Ilk, he sat on the assize at Stirling Castle in May 1425 that condemned Murdoch Stewart, Duke of Albany. Thomas Somerville probably founded the Collegiate Church at Carnwath with his family burial aisle around 1425-1430, and repaired the church at Linton, Roxburghshire.[1]Thomas Somerville, 1st Lord Somerville, was twelfth in the direct male line from Sir Gualter de Somerville, 1st Baron of Whichenour (in Staffordshire), who arrived with William the Conqueror in 1066.[4] Thomas married Janet Stewart, daughter of Alexander Stewart of Darnley, before July 1392. Their eldest daughter Mary married Sir William Hay of Yester, another daughter Geillis married Sir Robert Logan of Restalrig, and Margaret married Roger Kirkpatrick of Closeburn in Niddsdale. His heir William Somerville, 2nd Lord Somerville, married Janet Mowat of Stenness. The first Lord Somerville died in December 1434.[5]

The Campbells of Craignish (Mac Dúbhghaill Creaginnis in the Scottish Gaelic or Gàidhlig), form one of the oldest branches of the ancient and powerful Clan Campbell in Scotland.. They claim descent from Dugald Campbell, the second son of Sir Archibald Gillespic Campbell (b.1130), 5th Knight of Lochawe and 20th Chief of Clan Campbell at the time.
For four hundred and fifty years, from 1457 onwards, the Chiefs of Clan Campbell played leading roles in the government of Scotland, Great Britain, the United Kingdom, and the British Empire. When Colin Campbell of Lochawe was made first Earl of Argyll in 1457 and then Chancellor of Scotland, until the Union of the Kingdoms of Scotland and England in 1707, the Argyll family and their numerous followers had always to be taken into account where Scottish affairs were concerned. In the mid 16th century, the time of Elizabeth of England and Mary Queen of Scots, the fifth Earl of Argyll could bring a larger army to the field than that of either queen and he was the only noble in the British Isles to have his own artillery. In the mid 17th century the 8th Earl and Marquis of Argyll ruled Scotland for a time. Two Dukes have been Field Marshals and one a 4-star General.

In presenting this volume to the public, the Editor feels that very little need be said by him by way of preface. The House of Argyll, as the head of the Clan Campbell, holds such a prominent place in our national history, its records are so intimately blended with every struggle for religious and political freedom, the actions of its chiefs have shed such lustre on our annals, that any fresh fact connected with their history cannot fail to be acceptable to the public. Most of the matter herein contained has never before been published. Of the extracts from the Argyll papers in the Appendix, there were only fifty copies printed, while the body of the work is taken from some old manuscripts, long in the possession of the family of Archibald MacNab, Esq. of Penmore, Isle of Mull; these, as well as the ancient family tree of the Craignish Campbells, he has most kindly placed at our disposal. We have collated and compared these old documents with other authentic records to substantiate their facts and verify their dates, but the language of the writers we have left untouched. We are well aware that a few Gaelic scholars would,in some instances, have used other words, but we have adhered to the MSS. as giving the old and popular version of these names, as from the position of Neil. During the period of the Roman conquests, three different sorts of people, or distinct nations, inhabited Scotland — the ancient Britons, the Picts, and the Scots, each governed by their own kings. offering the sovereignty to their king, which he declined, but sent his son Constantine with an army to their assistance, in the year 404, in the reign of Fergus the Second.* This Constantine reigned over the Britons till about the year 420, and was grandfather to Arthur of the Round Table, with whom the Campbells commonly begin their genealogy. Thus it is clear that this ancient race can trace back from father to son for fourteen centuries and a half in an unbroken line.
