Campbell - Darian - Panama - Jamaica

Postby tcswim » Mon Sep 06, 2010 2:43 pm

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

You can find info on John and the Campbells of Jamaica, including wills transcribed, on jamaicanfamilysearch.com website.
For a small fee you can search information. Also you can google John Campbell+Jamaica. Campbell is one of the most common names in Jamaica. Good luck.
