  • ID: I886
  • Name: Archibald Roy Campbell
  • Suffix: 4th Earl of Argyll
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: AUG 1508
  • Death: 18 JUL 1558
  • Note:

    a.k.a. Gillespie Roy.
    He must also have been married to Catherine Maclean, daughter of Hector (Mor ?) or Hector Og Maclean of Duart or rather Hector 12th Maclean of Duart.
    In 1558 he sent a large fleet to Roag in the Isle of Skye to make a contract of marriage probably of one of his sons and Mary MacLeod. His expedition however was killed after having been entertained by Iain Dubh MacLeod, the usurping chief of the day.
    There was a suspicion at the privy council, probably shared in by James V himself, that many of the disturbances in the Isles were secretly formented by the Argyll family, who in due course received the lands forfeited by the other chiefs. Alexander of Isla, being summoned to answer certain charges of Argyll, made his appearance at once, and gave in to the council a written statement, in which, among other things, he stated that the disturbed state of the Isles was mainly caused by the late Earl of Argyll and his brothers, Sir John Campbell of Calder, and Archibald Campbell of Skipnish. Archibald was summoned before James V, to give an account of the duties and rental of the Isles received by him, and was soon after his arrival imprisoned. He was liberated soon, but James V deprived him of the offices he still held in the Isles, some of which were bestowed on Alexander of Isla. After the death of James V he appears to have regained his authority over the Isles.
