DUNCAN MCIVER CAMPBELL – THE TROUBLED LAIRD
This is the fascinating story of an intriguing man, born in interesting times.
Duncan Paterson was born in Kilrush, County Clare, Ireland around 1798 to an Irish mother and a Scottish father of some pedigree. Born a Paterson, he would, in 1853, successfully apply to the Lord Lyon in Edinburgh to change his name to Duncan MacIver Campbell upon his inheritance of the substantial Asknish estate at Lochgair, Argyll.
Duncan had an eventful personal life, marrying twice without issue, but between those marriages he would conduct a relationship of some years standing with one of his domestic servants, resulting in the birth of three illegitimate children, two daughters and a son, his only descendants. The first marriage, lasting less than a year, was not for love, but for Duncan’s financial benefit, and almost inevitably, ended in a long running and acrimonious divorce case, debated not only in the Scottish Courts, but considered on appeal, at length, in the House of Lords. His second wife was related to both him, and his first wife, however, against all the odds, this marriage was successful and would last twenty years until his death in 1881. He had a number of acrimonious disputes which would cause him anxiety and bouts of depression throughout a substantial part of his life. Disputes with his with his father leading to his exile from Kilrush, with his first wife, with her father and family, with a rival claimant to his accession to the chieftainship of the MacIver Campbell family, with the Admiralty over a disputed patent, and, with a number of local fishermen leading to a physical assault on him.
