Duncan Of Glenorchy Campbell
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1455
Death: Sep. 9, 1513

Duncan is the son of Colin Campbell of Glenorchy, 1st of Duntroon and Janet Stewart. He is the grandson of Duncan Mor Campbell and Marjory Stewart, 1st Lord Campbell of Lochawe

Sir Duncan, the second laird, extended the family possessions on Loch Tayside by acquiring the barony of Finlarig, which had been long in the hands of the Drummonds of Stobhall, and also the tack of the twelve-merk land of Crannich from the Laird of Weem. About 1492 he came into possession of the lands of Balloch. Glenlyon likewise fell into his hands, and he received a charter from James IV., appointing him Bailie of Discher and Toyer, and Glenlyon, when he took in tack the King's lands in Breadalbane. He was twice married, and had four sons and three daughters. To Archibald, his second son, he gave Glenlyon, and to his brother John, who had in his father's lifetime received the barony of Lawers, he gave the eight- merk land of Shian, in Glenquaich, which he had also acquired.

Until the purchase of Finlarig, with its old castle, which had been built by the Drummonds, the Augustinian Priory, in the Isle of Loch Tay, seems to have been the residence of the Glenorchy Campbells in this quarter. There was certainly, in those days, a degree of security both from man and beast in living on an island. Kilchurn Castle, however, continued to be the chief seat for some time, and it was there that the third and fourth lairds breathed their last. They were both buried in the chapel of Finlarig, which had been erected by the third laird to be " ane Buriall for himselff and his Posteritie." Sir John, the fifth laird, died in the Isle of Loch Tay, on the 5th of July, 1550, and Sir Colin succeeded as sixth laird.

Sir Duncan was killed at Flodden, along with his chief, the Earl of Argyll, and his sovereign.

RIP Grandpa Duncan! I'm your 14th Great Granddaughter. ;-)Sorry to disappoint but the photo displayed is NOT Duncan Campbell. It is Lord Mungo Murray painted by John Wright sometime in the 1680s.
