Colin Campbell of Ardentinny (d 1510)
1. Donald Campbell of Ardentinny (dspm?)

  a. Duncan Campbell of Ardentinny, Dunoon & Kilmun (b c1558, d before 15.08.1633)
  m1. (c1583) Jean Galbraith
  (1) John Campbell (dvp before 03.1629)
  (2) Donald Campbell of Orchard (b c1586)
  ## FSCOMT shows one Donald of Orchard as of this marriage and another as of the second marriage and shows this one as father of Colin of Ardentinny (the mother not being named). HJHeraldry shows just one Donald, of the 2nd marriage, showing him as 'of Ardentinny', and that he "was succeeded by" Colin and then notes that Colin "called himself nephew and apparent heir to Donald Campbell". It is possible that there were 2 Donalds of this generation, one by each marriage. and it is possible that that reference (Colin calling himself nephew) was to this Donald rather than to his father. However, the dates (some from HJHeraldry and others from FSCOMT) make it impossible that it was the 2nd Donald who was father of Colin. We therefore assume that this Donald EITHER did not succeed his father for some reason (because of some agreement with the 2nd father-in-law??) but was replaced by his younger brother, also named Donald, who dsp, leaving this Donald's son as successor OR he did succeed for a short time but died leaving his son too young so that his uncle stepped in to manage the estates.

FSCOMT also a Walter as 2nd son of this generation but does not show any family for him.
