Notes

 

Burke (1853) reports that number 8 was son of a James Campbell. However, James son of Donald McCoran and Agnes Haldan in ďInchie-nochĒ was baptised at Port of Menteith on 1 Feb 1713 (Port of Menteith parish registers) and there was a tradition that the prime ministerís family was descended from the Haldanes of Gleneagles (see G. Harvey Johnston, The Heraldry of the Campbells, 2 vols. [Edinburgh, 1920-21], 2:46).
