Major-General Sir John Campbell

Major-General Sir John Campbell - killed in the attack on the Redan - 18th June 1855.

Buried on Cathcart's Hill - "Sacred to the memory of Major General Sir John Campbell Bart. killed in action June 18th 1855."



Major-general Sir John Campbell, the second son, succeeded as second baronet. Born 14th April 1807, he married, 21st July 1841, Helen Margaret, only child of Colonel John Crow, East India Company's service. He was killed in the assault on the Redan, Sebastopol, 18th June 1855, when in command of a division. In this attack he seems to have displayed a courage amounting to rashness. He sent away his two aides-de-camp just before he rushed out of the trench, and fell in the act of cheering his men. He was buried on Cathcart's Hill, among many brave officers killed at the same time. He had, with other issue, Sir Archibald Ava Campbell, third baronet, born at Edinburgh in 1844. Heir presumptive to the title, his brother, John James Ava Campbell, born in 1845.


Memorials to Sir John Campbell are located in the Church of St. John the Evangelist, Edinburgh, Scotland and Winchester Cathedral, Winchester, Hampshire, England.
