    Catherine Campbell seems to have been the daughter of Colin Campbell of Lundie, who acquired part of Montcoffer from Sir Alexander Abercromby of Birkenbog about 1676 j the said Colin's wife having been Helen Abercrombie, apparently of the Glassangh family.
    Catherine married Patrick or Peter Russell, who acquired part of Montcoffer in 1680 : he had also some salmon fishings in the Deveron: he died in 1713, and was succeeded by his son Alexander. (See Notes on Moncoffer in a Paper by T)r Cramond, Cullen, read to Banffshire Field Club 13th Nov. 1901.) Patrick's relict Catherine married
    Francis Gordon, eighth laird of Craig, as his third wife, and Francis died in 1727.
