Famous or Notable People
Those people of note with connections to the county are listed below. Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown! Please visit Argyllshire - Famous People and add them to the listing there.
People from Argyllshire who went to the "New world" and were early progenitors in those countries. Where the earliest ancestor is known please add them to the list of "Argyllshire families on Geni" below if that was their roots, or to the appropriate county project.
Where the earliest known ancestor is the emigrant add them to the list below. In some cases if there is a project that covers them in detail please link the project.
