1. John Campbell of Ardkinglas (d before 1460)
  HJHeraldry shows that John married once, to Marion Campbell (implied mother of Colin, Robert and another son ("ancestor of Beach")), and had 2 natural sons, Ewen & Duncan. Provisionally we follow FSCOMT which suggests that Marion was the mother of his natural sons and that his formal wife was ...

  m1. Alexander Macnachton of Mcnachton
  m2. Alasdair Macgregor of Glenstrae (d c1550)
  e. daughter
  m. John Spens of Condie
  FSCOMT identifies John's 2nd wife as Margaret, dau of Patrick Graham of Inchbrakie by Margaret Stewart, and notes that she is sometimes called Janet. We think that she has been confused with the Janet who married her son Dougald. FSCOMT shows that her first son swas born c1491 but the first Graham of Inchbrakie's parents did not marry until about 1509. See note under Janet Graham on the Graham page linked to below.

  g. Dougald (Dougall) Campbell of Ardailtoun (d before 10.05.1550)
  FSCOMT identifies Dougall's wife as Janet Graham (d 1574) who m2. Robert Buchanan of Leny. John Guthrie Smith, in his 'History of Strathendrick' (note on p293), confirms that it was the following Janet who married Dougald and was mother of James of Ardkinglass (her "eldest son"). See also the note regarding Margaret Graham above.
