The Scottish Nation

IRVINE, Earl of, a title, conferred, in 1642, on the Hon. John Campbell, only son of the 7th earl of Argyle, by his 2d wife, Anne, daughter of Sir William Cornwallis. When very young he was created a peer of Scotland by the title of Baron Kintyre, to himself and his heirs male and assigns, by royal charter, dated February 12, 1626. He entered the military service of Louis XIII. Of France, and in the wars of that monarch with Spain, he had the command of a regiment. On his return to Scotland, he was created by Charles I. earl of Irvine and Baron Lundie, by patent, dated at York, March 28, 1642, to him and the heirs male of his body. He died in France before the Restoration, without issue, whereby his titles of earl of Irvine and Baron Lundie became extinct.
