A new play on at the Edinburgh Festival depicted the (failed) Scottish attempt to create a Scots colony in Panama (1685?) called Darian. Many (over 1,000) died in the attempt but some survived and settled in Jamaica include a (Sir??) John Campbell who was in charge of the military on the expedition and lived for some time in Jamaica as part of a great Argyle community in Western Jamaica.

Anyone with knowledge of this man? Thanks in advance
