CAMPBELL, FREDERICK-WILLIAM, esq. b. 4th January, 1782, m. 21st
February, 1820, Sophia, daughter of the late Sir Edward Winnington, bait. M.P.
by whom he has an only surviving child, Sophia-Jane. This gentleman, who was
formerly lieutenant and captain in the 1st regiment of Guards, s. his father in 1804.
He is a magistrate and deputy-lieutenant for the. county of Suffolk.

The family of Campbell, is one of the
most distinguished in Scotland ; and its
head, argyll, in feudal times, was perhaps
the most powerful subject in the kingdom.

Sir Colin Campbell, of Lochow, (grand-
son of Sir Colin, distinguished for his war-
like achievements by the surname of More
or the Great,) was lineally descended from
Gillespick Campbell, who eight centuries
before, had obiained, by marriage with
an heiress, the lordship of Lochow, in Ar-
gyllshire. Sir Colin acquired renown in
the service of his uncle Robert Brl'CE, and
dying in 1340, left issue,

Archibald, from whom the ducal fa-
mily of Argyll.
John, ancestor of the branch of Bab-



breck ; from whom spring Campbell
of Suocotli and some others.
Dugald, who lost his estates by his
adhesion to Edward Baliol.
The second son,

John Campbell* appears to have held
Ardskeodnish as well as Barbreck. His
descendants continued possessed of the
latter estate until, the male heirs having
failed in the sixth generation, the heiress
conveyed Barbreck to her husband,

Colin Campbell, a relation of Archibald,
second earl of Argyll, who, in right of his
marriage, assumed the designation " of
Barbreck," and as he lineally descended
from Sir Colin, father to John, the first
Barbreck, the link of the male line was thus
restored. To Colin Campbell and the Lady
of Barbreck, succeeded their son,

Colin Campbell, of Barbreck, whose
name appears as witness to two deeds,
bearing date 1575. He was s. by his son,

Sir Archibald Campbell, knt. of Bar-
breck, mentioned in several records in the
early part of the seventeenth century. Sir
Archibald was s. about the year 1630, by
his son,

Colin Campbell, of Barbreck, who wed-
ded a lady of his own name. This laird,
as well as his successors, were for nearly a
century connected with, and actively en-
gaged in, all the troubles that afflicted Scot-
laud. During the civil wars of the reign of
Charles I. the Campbells were pre-emi-
nently distinguished, and when the estates
of the kingdom (assembled in Edinburgh,
26th August, 1643,) passed an act for the
committees of war, and putting the king-
dom in a posture of defence, Robert Camp-
bell, of Glenurchie, Sir Duncan Campbell,
of Auchinbreck, Duncan Campbell, of Dun-
dron, and Colin Campbell, of Barbreck,
were appointed colonels of horse in the
sheriffdom of Argyll. Colin Campbell served
in other wars besides those of Scotland,
as an agreement between himself and his
wife's brothers indicates. He afterwards
fought and was taken prisoner at the battle
of Inverlochy, when the Marquiss of Argylle
was defeated by Montrose. " The moon
shone so clear," says Wishart, in describing
this engagement, " that it was almost as
light as day ; they lay upon their arms the
whole night, and, with the assistance of the

* In the genealogies of the family of Argyll,
written in 1777, by Mr. Duncanson, of Inverary,
this John is styled John Annan, or weak John ;
and the same author thus proceeds, " some reckon
John Annan to have been the eldest son, and, by
advice, to have resigned the estate to his brother,
reserving for himself the straight of Craignish.
From this John Annan is descended the old family
of 15arbrkck."

light, they so harassed each other with
slight alarms and skirmishes, that neither
gave the other time to repose. They all
earnestly wished for day, only Argyll, more
intent on his own safety, conveyed himself
away about the middle of the night, and
having very opportunely got a boat, escaped
the hazard of a battle, choosing rather to be
a spectator of the prowess of his men, than
share in the danger himself. Nevertheless,
the chiefs of the Campbells, who are indeed
a set of very brave men, and worthy of a
better chief, and a better cause, began the
battle with great courage. But their first
ranks discharging their muskets only once,
