About Colin Campbell, of Glenure [Glennure] "The Red Fox"

Colin Campbell of Glenure, was the eldest son of Patrick Campbell of Barcaldine by his second marriage. Colin, by his marriage to Janet Mackay, was the father of three daughters:

  • Elizabeth (died before she was 12 yrs.),

  • Louisa (married to George Mackay of Handa, 1737-1798, later Lt. Col. George Mackay of Bighouse) - George and Louisa were the parents of 21 children, but two died v. young, and
  • Colina (later Mrs. James Baillie) born eight months after her father was fatally shot on 14th May, 1752.

So, my own mother, Enid Clunes Mackay 1897-1980, was the 3rd child of Patrick Colin Campbell Mackay 1863-1925, who was the eldest son of Patrick Mackay 1820-1892, who was the 3rd son of Lt. Col. Colin Campbell Mackay who was the 2nd son of the family of 21 children of George and Louisa, as above. Primrose Richards

Per Primrose Richards Please refer to map of Appin, Argyle. See the river Ure, hence Glenure being the correct name of the land and house received by Colin from his father.
