Biography

Mary Campbell b. 1688/1690 d. 1762 who married Michael Woods b. 1684 d. 1762 is not the daughter of Sir James Campbell of Auchinbreck by his second wife Susan Campbell. The Clan Campbell Society Genealogist has checked out this information for several the descendants who are members of the Society. Mary Campbell was born in 1688, Sir James Campbell of Auchinbreck was only 6 or 7 years of age at the time of her birth, he died 14 Oct 1756 at the age of 74, this would make the date of his birth as 1681 or 1682. Records indicate he was married to Lady Susan Campbell by 18 Dec 1717. She was the daughter of Archibald Campbell.[1]

The eldest son of Archibald Campbell, 9th Earl of Argyll and Mary Stuart, daughter of James Stuart, 4th Earl of Moray, Campbell sought to recover his father's estates (by gaining King James II's favour). However, after failing to do so, he supported William and Mary's quest for the throne; this important support led to the monarchs returning his father's estate. Also, he was made a Privy Councillor. He was William's chief Scottish advisor, and was colonel-in-chief of the Earl of Argyll's Regiment of Foot, that was involved in the 1692 massacre of the MacDonalds of Glen Coe, but took no part in any of its field operations. He was made a duke in 1701.

On 12 March 1678, he married Elizabeth Tollemache (daughter of Elizabeth and Sir Lionel Tollemache, 3rd Baronet at Edinburgh, Scotland. They had three children:

John Campbell, 2nd Duke of Argyll (10 October 1680 – 4 October 1743) Archibald Campbell, 3rd Duke of Argyll (June 1682 – 15 April 1761) Lady Margaret Campbell (2 June 1690 – 1742), m. Michael Woods. The 1st Duke of Argyll is buried at Kilmun Parish Church. [2][3]

To keep it from being uncertain just take that one off who makes them uncertain I can follow the right information and it looks right but then it says it's uncertain that is because them three need to merge or move out of the way 15 years in age difference isn't right from records I have seen. I will work on this if you like, Thanks

Campbell-16463 and Campbell-941 do not represent the same person because: The coincidence of a Mary Margaret Campbell of Scotland marrying a Michael Woods of Ireland is not sufficient to support merging of these two, because the names involved were/are extremely common in both cases, and in both places. Also, it is highly unlikely that Woods-460 would have married any woman 15 years his senior, especially in those days.
