    --------------------

    Colin Campbell, 2nd Lord Campbell, d. 19 May 1493, Justiciar of Scotland, cr 1457 [?]; m. bef 9 Apr 1465 Isobel (or Elizabeth), eldest daughter of John Stewart, 2nd Lord Lorn. [Magna Charta Sureties]

    BARONY OF CAMPBELL (II) 1453

    EARLDOM OF ARGYLL [SCT] (I) 1457

    COLIN (CAMPBELL), LORD CAMPBELL [SCT], son and heir of Archibald CAMPBELL, of Lochow, Argyll, styled MASTER OF CAMPBELL, by, as is said (aa), Elizabeth, daughter of John (SOMERVILE), 3rd LORD SOMERVILE, which Archibald was son and heir apparent of Duncan, 1st LORD CAMPBELL [SCT], but died v.p., between April 1431 and March 1440, probably before 1439. He succeeded to the dignity of a Lord of Parliament [SCT] by the death of his said grandfather, in 1453, being then a minor, and was created by James II, in 1457 EARL OF ARGYLL [SCT]. He was employed in various embassies to England and France, was Master of the Household 1464, and Chancellor [SCT] 1483 to February 1488, and again June 1488 till his death. In 1460 he had a commission as Bailie of Cowal. In 1471 he had a charter of the heritable offices of Justiciary and Sheriff within the lordship of Lorne. In 1479 he had a charter confirming to him the offices of Lieutenant and Commissary of Argyll, as held by his ancestors Gillespic and Colin Cambel under a charter of 1382. In 1487 he joined the conspiracy of the nobles against James III.

    He married, before 9 April 1465, Elizabeth or Isabel, daughter and senior coheir of John (STEWART), 2nd LORD LORNE [SCT]. On the resignation of her uncle, Walter STEWART, the heir male of the family, till then usually designated LORD LORNE, but afterwards LORD INNERMEATH [SCT], he obtained a crown charter of the Lordship of Lorne (dominium de Lorne), 17 April 1470, to him and the heirs male of his body, with remainder to Sir Colin Campbell of Glenorchy, to Colin Campbell Nelesoun, to Duncan Campbell (brother of Sir Colin, of Glenorchy), &C., each in like manner respectively. It was made a condition of this resignation that the resigner should continue a Lord of Parliament by the style of Lord of Innermeath "or any other honourable place that pleases him." From that time the Earl is usually designated (as are his successors) "Earl of Argyll, Lord Campbell and Lorne." After the rebellion in 1487, which ended in the death of James III at Sauchieburn, he was deprived of the office of Chancellor, but was reinstated by James IV in 1488, as above. He died in May 1493. His widow died 26 October 1510, at Dunbarton, and was buried at Kilmun. [CP I:198, XIV:33, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (aa) [added by XIV:33] There is no proof of this marriage. According to 'Scots Peerage', he probably m. Mariota of the Isles, daughter of Sir Donald, Lord of the Isles and Ross, as on 13 Feb 1419/20, beint betrothed, they had a Papal dispensation to marry.

    Note: I have Mariota m. Alexander Master of Sutherland. If Colin was son of Mariota, then he would have been marrying his 1st cousin because Elizabeth/Isabel's mother was Agnes, sister of Mariota. Also XIV:33 changes Elizabeth's father to be 2nd (instead of 3rd) Lord Somerville (using double "l" instead of one "l" as in the original CP above). This disagrees with BP & MCS, who have the 3rd Lord as father. The dates are pretty tight for her to be daughter of 3rd Lord Somerville, so maybe CP XIV:33 is correct. On the other hand, since volume XIV says there is no proof of the marriage of Archibald & Elizabeth Somerville, then how do they know who Elizabeth's father was?

    Colin was granted Sween Castle sometime after 1481.
