From about 1991-1999, I conducted genealogical research regarding two Campbell family groups who migrated to the southwestern part of colonial Virginia in the years prior to the American Revolution. This web site presents some of the results of that research but is not intended to be an exhaustive exposition of the history of these branches of the Campbell Clan.
These Southwest Virginia Campbells descend from two family groups who settled in Beverley Manor (Orange/Augusta County) Virginia in the 1730's and 1740's. Many notable political and military figures have descended from these Campbell progenitors. The groups are:
1. John Campbell (d. 1741) and his sons, Patrick, Robert and "White David" Campbell. John's eldest son, Patrick, acquired land in Beverley Manor in 1738. For convenience, at this web site, the group is usually referred to as the White David Campbell family.
2. Alexander Campbell (d. 1758) and his sons, William, Robert, Alexander, Junior and "Black David" Campbell. Alexander Campbell, Senior acquired land in Beverley Manor in 1744. For convenience, at this web site, the group is usually referred to as the Black David Campbell family.
I currently support twenty-four websites. Fifteen sites are related to philosophy and art; nine sites are related to genealogy and local history. Hyperlinks to these sites are shown below:
