About Colonel John Lochard Campbell

Distant relative of Elizabeth Macquarie through birth and marriage. Retired from the Lochend Royal Marines. Arrived with his wife Annabella (nee Campbell of Melfort) and family in Hobart Town on 29 October 1821 on board the Lusitania. The vessel had been chartered by several Scottish families (Campbell, Ranken, and Macleod) for passage to Australia. John Campbell sailed on to Sydney in late November 1821 without his family (who joined him in April 1822 on board the Castle Forbes) and received a land grant from Governor Brisbane at Eastern Creek [near present day Prospect, western Sydney] that he named 'Bungarribee.' It was 2000 acres in extent, and was bordered on the south by the Western Road, on the east by Flushcombe Road, and on the west by Eastern Creek.

His wife, Annabella, died on 11 November 1826 [aged 52] and John Campbell died eleven months later on 12 October 1827 [aged 57]. Both were buried in St. John's Cemetery, Parramatta.

Bungarribee House, Doonside was built in 1827 for Colonel John Campbell, NSW Governor's Secretary. It was located on Doonside Road. Purchased by Thomas Icely in 1828, it was unfortunately demolished in 1957, by the Overseas Telecommunications Commission.
