The Clan Campbell
A brief review of a book of the same name


THE CLAN CAMPBELL. Abstracts of Entries relating to Campbells in the Sheriff Court Books of Argyll at Inveraray. Prepared and edited by Rev. Henry Paton. Pp. viii, 312. Edinburgh : Otto Schulze & Co.

'THIS volume,' says the introduction, is the first of a series which it is intended to publish from the large collection of Campbell information gathered from public and private record sources by Sir Duncan Campbell of Barcaldine and Glenure, Baronet, for the purpose of providing materials for the construction of accurate and reliable memoirs of the various branches of the Clan Campbell.' Planned by Carrick Pursuivant and executed by the expert hand of Mr. Paton, the collection embraces about 2000 bonds, agreements, contracts, etc., between the years 1689 and 1784. The index of persons contains forty-six solid columns of Campbells, and the book is, for all sorts and conditions of the clan, treasure-trove for their pedigrees, lands, occupations, and connexions. It is a capital beginning of a Campbell Calendar, bound in the heraldic or and sable of Argyll.
