Note: . The Testament Dative of William Campbell, brother-german to the laird of Ardkinlass, parish of Lochgoilhead, was recorded 4 May 1683 in the Argyll Commissary Court [CC2/3/2]. He was also identified as the son of Colin Campbell [NAS. GD112/11/1/27].
A Genealogical and Heraldic Dictionary of the Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland, by John Burke and John Bernard Burke (Coburn, London, 1850), page 240: "William Murdoch, Esq. of Gartincaber [Kilmadock, Perth], m. 1801 Sarah, dau. of Patrick Campbell, Esq. of Dunderave Castle, co. Argyll, surgeon of the 42nd Highlanders, and by her had only dau. and heiress, Ann Maule Murdoch."
Patrick Campbell, son of Colin Campbell, was a tacksman of Lix and Milnmore in Killin, Perth in 1735. [NAS. GD112/11/1/27] In 1729 Patrick lived in Wester Lix, Killin, Perth, soon moving to Milnmore, Killin.
Patrick's tombstone was erected by his dutiful son Alexander Esq., Comptroller of Customs at Port Glasgow, and lists him as Mr. Patrick Campbell, late of Dundrave, Loch Fyneside [Argyll]. Buried with Patrick are his wife Henrietta, 10 sons, 5 daughters, and granddaughter Henrietta Murdoch, who died at age 22.
The Testament Dative [no will] of Patrick Campbell, sometime in Inverchaggernay, thereafter at Dundarave, parish of Kilmorich, was recorded 5 July 1774 in the Argyll Commissary Court. The testament records his death as 23 Feb 1772 and names son Alexander Campbell, Land Waiter in Greenock, as executor dative.
The tombstone in Old Kilmadock Graveyard was recorded and transcribed as �Mr Patk Campbell, late of Dundarave Loch Fyneside, w Mrs Henrietta C. d Doune .8.1786 87, ten ss, 5 das in all, by dutiful s Alex exq comptroller customs Port Glasgow, gch Henrietta Murdoch 22 bd here.� Son Alexander supplied Henrietta's birth in 1698/9 and provides she had 15 children (3 sons missing from the records). This also suggests Ann and Henrietta are the same person.
---------------------------------------------------- Note: Christian was not this Patrick's daughter. The Killin parish record reads: Eodem die [21 Mar 1735] Patrick Campbell in Ledeharrey and Ann Campbell had a naturall [illegitimate] child baptized by a sponsor called Christian.
Note: Son Alexander obtained a grant of arms that gave Patrick as from the Campbells of Ardkinglass
