This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

(1) The following has been pulled together from various web sites plus information kindly provided by a contributor (DA, 03.07.08). Dan Byrne's site suggests that Principal Neil was a nephew of Colonel John Campbell of Black River, Jamaica. An article in 1998 on Major John Campbell (d 1685) in the Kintyre Mag by A.I.B. Stewart ("AIBS") reported (without particulary supporting) a theory that Principal Neil may have been son of Major John who may in turn have been a younger son of Campbell of Claonarigh (Clunaray or Clenary), a branch of the McIver Campbells. Alternatively, Principal Neil's father (possibly Major John) or grandfather may have been an illegitimate son of one of the Earls of Argyll.
(2)AIBS reported that Major John is known to have had 3 daughters as follows.
John Campbell (d 1685, Major)
1. Margaret Campbell
  m. Lachlan McNeill of Auchensavit
2. Barbara Campbell
  m. Patrick Mcvicar of Campbeltown
3. Jannet Campbell
  m. (mcrt 25.02.1676) John McNeill (son of Malcolm of Carskey)
Noting that the web site interest in this family appears to be mainly in Sir Duncan Campbell (son of Principal Neil), only partly because of his connection with Bligh 'of the Bounty', we refrain from showing Principal Neil as a son of Major John Campbell but mention it here as a possibility.

Commoners (vol III, Lewis of Greenmeadow) identifies John as 'of Branceford Peak, Devonshire' but BLG1952 (Disraelie of Hughenden) identifies him as shown here. TCP identifies him as "sometime of Exeter".

Simon de St. Liz or St. Lise
Visitation shows this Simon as Simon de St. Liz, Earl of Northampton & Huntingdon, showing both that he dsp 1184 and that he had 3 sons. Visitation shows those sons as by Alice de Gaunt but, if they were indeed his sons (which we doubt), they must surely have been illegimitate for TCP (Huntingdon) reports that he had only one (legitimate) son, a Simon who dvp young.
