My brother came across a notebook filled with several pieces of information concerning Campbeltown leases (from the Duke of Argyll) and grave marker detail.

Can anyone identify any of the information here????? This is ALL NEW and I have no idea who half these people are!!!

Here is what I have on the leases which I believe are all Darlochan except the first one:

1770 Charles Stewart 19 year lease
1787 John Kelly Vol 1.65 Middle Darlochan 19 years.
1806 Kelly for 19 years
1825 Archibald Stewart Darlochan West Division latterly possessed by Dugald Stewart removed to Tonriach.
1825 Peter Kelly Middle Division (Peter Kelly[s father was John Kelly who died in 1817. John had 8 sons and 4 daughters.
1863 Alexander Stewart West and Middles Darlochan Vol 20/41

Graveyard information from Campbeltown Cemetery:

Also his sister Isabella Stewart who died 19.11.1925 aged 91 years.

Dugald Stewart Tonrioch died 7.10.1859 aged 87 years (Dugald would appear to be Archibald's father in law?? who took over Tonrioch in 1825)
Mary Logan his wife died 28.5.1870 aged 48 years. William Stewart died at Tonrioch 29.10.1891 son of Dugald Stewart.
