A William Campbell, a minister boarding at Newton Cottage,
Bowmore in 1881 was born in Dalavich on loch Fyne and is most
likely the son on Donald Campbell and Catherine Bell. His birth
was registered at Inverary on the 5th October 1852 which would
make him age 28 as shown in the April 1881 Census.
A William Campbell married a Jessie Sinclair in Wick in 1884 the
same year Colin Islay Campbell was born in Bowmore.
William Campbell of Kildalton Parish was my great, great
grandfather. The information that I have is as follows:
William Campbell (1853-1893) married Jessie Sinclair (1849-1888).
Following her death he emigrated to Babinda, Queensland, Australia
with their children Colin Islay Campbell (1886-29/12/1970) and
Christina Campbell (1884)
Colin Islay married Alison May Crocker. My grandfather was their
eldest son Alexander "Sandy" Colin Campbell (1917-1969), Colin
William, Ian 'Dooky" Donald, Heather Alison (1920 - 2008).
Alexander Colin Campbell married first wife Krithia and had one
son Alexander Campbell. With his second wife Betty Patricia Kelly
(1930-2011) had Ian Alexander Campbell (1955), Bruce (1957), Julie
Elizabeth, Patricia Alison.
My father Ian Alexander married Rosemary Jane Diamond (1954).
Daughters Elizbeth Ann (1973), Samantha Jane (1975), Rebecca Lyn
I found a possible entry that William Campbell's parents were
Donald Campbell (1795) and Mary McNiven (1821) and that Donald had
a brother Malcom Campbell (1855).
Any assistance on tracing Minister William Campbell's or his
wife's parents will be truly appreciated.
