C.1.1.2. Jean Stewart (b.c.1728-1826) was the daughter of James Stewart, Moulin. She married William Campbell, minister of Kilchrenan, Argyll: FES, Vol.4, p.92. He was not the son of William Campbell, minister of Kilmodan, Argyll, despite what is said in FES, Vol.4, p.31.. A correspondent – Paul Campbell of Kirkcudbright – provides the following information: William Campbell, minister of Kilchrenan, was born in 1713. His putative parents were not married until 1719 (vide their marriage contract). In William Campbell of Kilmodan’s testament dative of early 1743 his son Patrick (aka Peter) is appointed executor as being his nearest of kin and lawful son. There is no mention of any William. In the considerable contemporary papers, including Wills, of the Campbells of South Hall which have survived but were not then available to Hew Scott and other compilers of Fasti, there is no mention of William and Barbara having any sons other than Patrick and Duncan. It’s not yet clear who William Campbell of Kilchrenan’s parents were. They were evidently educated and probably from Argyllshire. One suggestion made is that he may have been an illegitimate or adopted son of the Campbells of Ardkinglass.
In the preamble to the relevant section of Fasti Synod of Argyll, the editor admits that in producing the lists of ministers in Argyll “the difficulties have been unusually great” owing to significant gaps in the records or the lack of them. So the mis-attribution referred to above was likely no more than a calculated guess which we now know to be wrong.

C.1.1.2.1. Alexander Campbell (1759-1823) was the son of William Campbell, Kilchrenan. He was minister of Kilcalmonell, Argyll: FES, Vol.4, p.58.
