Thanks Ian, I had suspected Wm was the son of Colin and Elizabeth
proctor as they had a lot of chidren at Dalavich as shown on the
1881 census and on familysearch.org but I had no proof, well done,
this will give Elizabeth the correct parents for her William and
it becomes obvious why his first son was a Colin.

I have a marriage for William
Campbell son of Colin Campbell, Farmer, and Elizabeth
Proctor, born 1850 Dalavich Loch Fyne. He married Jessie
Campbell (Spinster aged 31 years) daughter of Peter
Campbell, a Farmer and Christina McGibbon? 7 Mar 1883
Alexandra Hotel, Glasgow, 7 Mar 1883. ( a Clergyman,
Bachelor aged 33 years) They has a son Colin Islay Campbell
born 12 May 1885 at The Manse, Kildalton.
Sorry, I made an mistake,
Colin Islay Campbell was born in Bowmore in 1885 not 1884.

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
A William Campbell married a Jessie Sinclair in Wick in
1884 the same year Colin Islay Campbell was born in Bowmore.
Minister 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
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 (1978).
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.
