Montrose's men fell upon them sword in
hand, with a great shout, and advanced with
such impetuosity, that they routed the whole
army, and put them to Jiight, and pursued
them for about nine miles, making dreadful
slaughter all the way. There were fifteen
hundred of the enemy slain, among whom
were several gentlemen of distinction of the
name of Campbell, who led on the clan, and
fell on the field of battle, too gallantly for
their dastardly chief. Montrose, though an
enemy, pitied their fate, and used his au-
thority to save and give quarter to as many
as he could. In this battle Montrose had
several wounded, but he had none killed
but three privates, and Sir Thomas Ogilvie,
son of the earl of Airly ; while Argyll lost
the lairds of Auchenbreck, Glensaddell, and
Locknell, with his son and brother; and
Barbreck, Inueraw, Lamont, Silyercraigs,
and many others prisoners." Colin Camp-
bell left two sons, Donald and Duncan ; by
the elder,

Donald Campbell, of Barbreck, he was
succeeded about the year 1648, although
the saisine in his favor, as heir to the estate,
is not dated until about two years afterwards.
This laird was appointed in 1648, by the
convention of the Scotch estates, one of the
colonels of Horse for the county of Argyll,
and in the act passed in 1661 by the parlia-
ment, for " raising the annuitie of 40,000
lib. sterling, granted to his majestye, Donald
Campbell, of Barbreck, is nominated one
of the parliamentary commissioners to carry
it into effect in the county of Argyll. For
several years subsequently, Barbreck was
entrusted by the Scottish parliament with
various duties of importance ; but in 1686,
being involved in the misfortunes of the ill-
fated earl of Argyll, the lands and barony
of Barbreck were forfeited and granted to
Sir James Steuart, of Bute, and to render
this grant effectual, the Scottish parliament
passed an act of Ratification in favor of
Sir James. No actual possession followed,
however, on this parliamentary ratifica-
tion ; for we find in the year after the
Revolution, that William and Mary, by
their commissioners, issued a proclamation

for calling together the militia on this side
of the Tay, and amongst other nominations,
Archibald Campbell, younger of Berbreck,
appointed captain. To Donald succeeded
his son,

Archibald Campbell, of Barbreck. This
gentleman continued for many years in
possession of the lands and barony of Bar-
breck, but from the persecutions to which
he and his family had been so long subject,
during the disturbances of Scotland, and
the heavy fine which had been imposed on
his father, Barbreck was compelled to bor-
row money from Lord Breadalbane and
others, which led eventually to an attempt
on their part to sell a portion of the Bar-
breck property, but this was resisted by the
Duke of Argyll, who considering that the
proceeding had violated the charter by which
the lands were originally held, claimed their
reversion to himself as chief of the clan.
The case was heard, by appeal, before the
House of Lords, in 1732, and decided* in
favour of his Grace, who thus obtained pos-
session of the estate.f Archibald Camp-
bell espoused Barbara, daughter of Sir Du-
gald Stewart, sheriff of Bute, and sister to
James, first Earl of Bute, by whom he had
issue,

James, his heir.

John, successor to his brother.

The elder son,

James Campbell, esq. of Barbreck,! wed-
ded his cousin, Isabel, daughter of John
Campbell, esq. of Castle Hill, sheriff of
Caithness, but leaving no surviving issue
(his only son had died abroad unmarried),
the representation of the family devolved
upon his brother,

John Campbell, esq. of Barbreck, who

— Hay, esq. who possessed an estate called
Hartfield, and to which there belonged a
valuable salmon fishery, near Tain, in Roth-
shire. By this lady he had(with three daugh-
ters, the eldest married to — Stewart, esq.
of Kilwhinlock, and the second to Colonel
Campbell, of Saddel,) two sons, Charles,

* This judgment, which has been since consi-
dered peculiarly harsh and severe, occurred only
about fifteen years before the passing of an act
abolishing the arbitrary right, under which the
claim was established.

+ This property, or rather that part containing
the site of the old mansion of Barbreck, was after-
wards, in 1754, bought by another Archibald
Campbell, who subsequently disposed of it to
General Campbell, of Ballimore, who left it to his
nephew, General Campbell, of Lochnell.

t In Scotland it is understood, that when an
old family p;irts with the property, from which its
distinsuishinfir name has been derived, the head
continues, by courtesy, still to be known by the
appellation.

ter of Sir James Campbell, bart. of Auchen-
breck, and d. in 1804. The elder son,

Colonel Charles Campbell, of Bar-
breck, inherited that portion of Hartfield
which belonged to his mother; and his aunt
Mary conveyed to him the remainder : the
whole of which he subsequently sold to
David Ross, esq. of Inverchasly (afterwards
a Scotch judge, by the title of Lord Anker-
ville). Colonel Campbell also possessed
property in the Isle of Bute, held of the
crown, and acquired, by purchase (princi-
pally in 1767), a considerable estate in Ar-
gyllshire. He wedded, in 1750, Miss D.
Morgan, and had (with two daughters, one
of whom died single, and the other married,
David Campbell, esq. of Combie) three sons,
viz.

1. Donald, his heir.

2. Laurence, b. in 1753, a captain in
the army, originally of the Scots
Greys, and afterwards of the 71st
Highlanders ; in which latter regi-
ment he served, and was wounded,
during the American war. He died
in 1824.

3. Charles, a major - general in the
army, b. in 1762, and d. in 1822.

Colonel Campbell died in 1792, and was s.
by his eldest son,

Donald Campbell, esq. of Barbreck, b.
in 1751. This gentleman, having at an early
age adopted the military profession, was
distinguished, under General Mathews, iii
India, and, while a prisoner in Bidanore,
acquired such an influence over the go-
vernor, that he hastened at a very critical
moment the surrender of that important
fortress. Captain Campbell wedded in 1778,
Mary Campbell, a daughter of Lord Frede-
rick Campbell, by whom he had issue,
Frederick-William, his heir.
John, b. in 1786, who lost his life while
serving with Lord Keith on board
H. M. S. Queen Charlotte, which was
burnt off Leghorn, 17th March, 1800.
Captain Campbell, who was sixteenth " of
Barbreck/' died in 1804, and was succeeded
by his only surviving child, the present
Frederick -William Campbell, esq. of
Barbreck, who has disposed of his estate in
Argyllshire, retaining only a superiority, to
connect him with the country where so
many of his ancestors were actively en-
gaged.

This family deduces its line from a com-
mon ancestor with the noble and potent
houses of the Geraldines, or Fitz Geralds, of
Ireland, and the Gerards and Carews of
England, (see pedigree of Carew, p. 266,)
being all descended from Gerald de Wind-
sor, constable of Pembroke, and governor
of South Wales, who, by Nesta, his wife,
daughter of Rhys-ap-Tudur, Prince of South
Wales, had three sons, viz.

William, ancestor of the Lords Gerard,
of England, and Earls of Kerry, in
Ireland.
Maurice.

David, who was consecrated Bishop of
St. Davids about the year 1147, and
d. in 1176.
The second son,

Maurice Fitz Gerald, was one of the sol-
diers of fortune who accompanied Strong-
Bow into Ireland, in 1168 ; he d. in the year



1177, and was buried in the Abbey of Grey
Friars, at Wexford. He had five sons and
a daughter,

1. Gerald Fitz Maurice, Lord Justi-
ciary of Ireland, ancestor of the Earls
of Kildare, now Dukes of Leinster.

2. Thomas, who m. Ellinor, daughter
of Jordan de Montmorenci, Lord of

numerous sept was established in Wales, by

Osber, or Osborn, frequently denomi-
nated Fitzgerald, but more commonly
called by the Welsh heralds, Wyddel,
(the Irishman,) who emigrated from Ire-
land, his native country, about the middle
of tbe thirteenth century, for the purpose,
probably, of supporting Llewelyn, the
reigning monarch of the Welch, in his con-
tests with the English king. Osborn subse-
quently obtained, in requital of his services,
the grant of an extensive territory in the
county of Merioneth. He had two sons,
Eimon ap Osborn, who had four sons, but
of their descendants, if any be extant, no-
thing is now known, and

Cynric ap Osborn, who, on the division
of his father's lands, according to tbe cus-
tom of Gravel kind, prevalent in Wales
until the passing of the ordinance for the
better government of that country in the
parliament of the 34th and 35th of Henry
VIII., inherited, as a portion of his share,
the domain of Cors-y-gedol, in Merioneth-
shire. His issue were,

eldest son,

who was slainf in a quarrel with
Owen Glyndwr. The hollow oak
in which the body of Howel was im-
mured by Glyndwr was standing until
October, 1813, and is the subject of a
beautiful engraving, from a sketch

by the Rev. Mr. Warrington, is printed in the
notes to Sir Walter Scott's Marmion.

i His defence of this fortress against the forces
of Edward IV. is thus noticed in the autobi-
ography of the celebrated Lord Herbert of Cher-
bury. " Sir Richard Herbert being imployed
too-ether with his brother William, Earl of Pem-
broke, to reduce certain rebells in North Wales,
Sir Richard Herbert besieged a principal person
of them at Harlech Castle in Merionethshire. The
captain of this place had been a soldier in the
wars of France, whereupon he said he had kept a
castle in France so long, that he made the old
women in Wales talk of him, and that he would
keep this castle so long that he would make the
old women in France talk of him ; and indeed as
the place was almost impregnable but by famine,
Sir Richard Herbert was constrained to take him
by composition, he surrend'ring himself upon
condition that Sir Richard Herbert shou'd do
what he cou'd to save his life ; which being ac-
cepted, Sir Richard brought him to King Edward
IV. desiring his Highness to give him a pardon,
since he yielded up a place of importance, which
he might have kept longer upon this hope; but
the King replying to Sir Richard Herbert, that
he had no power by his commission to pardon any,
and therefore might after the representation hereof
to his Majesty, safe deliver him up to justice, Sir
Richard Herbert answered he had not yet done
the best he could for him, and therefore most
humbly desired his Highness to do one of two
things* either to put him again in the castle where
he was, and command some other to take him

The fifth son,

Rhys ap Jevan, married Gwenhwyvar,
daughter and co-heir of Howel Vaughan, of
Fronoleu,in the county of Carnarvon, lineally
descended from Owen Gwynedd, Sovereign
Prince of North Wales, and had two sons,
Jevan and Rhydderch. The elder,

Jevan ap Rhys, living on the 4th March,
1513, m. Laurea, daughter and heiress of
Richard Bamville, of Glynn, in Merioneth-
shire, Constable of Harlech Castle, and had

gan ap Robert, the other, supposed to be
Catherine, m. to William, or John, ap Ma-
doc Vychan), a son and successor,

John ap Jevan, of Glynn, esq. living 19th
October, 1544. This gentleman wedded
Gwenever, daughter, and at length heiress
of Griffith ap Edneved of Sylvaen, in Merio-
netlishire,by whom (who espoused secondly,
Thomas ap Humphrey, of Berriew, in the
county of Montgomery, gent.), he had issue,

his life for the said captain's, that being the last
proof he could give that he used his utmost
endeavour to save the said captain's life. The
King finding himself urged thus far, gave Sir
Richard Herbert the life of the said captain, but
withal he bestowed no other reward for his
service."

It is proved by the rolls of parliament, that David
had continued to hold the fortress against the royal
mandate to deliver it up, for the space of three
years, and tradition assigns to him a much longer
defence. Famine obliged him at length to sur-
render. During his custody of the castle (in 1463,)
the virtuous but imbecile Henry VI. and his high
minded and spirited Queen found refuge within
its walls.
