Thanks Kevin, that is great,
Also that you put John Campbell of Kilberry in touch with me, and he has sent me a lot of stuff and hopefully I have filled him in sufficiently on my line twice (or more) connected to our same unclexxxxxxxx Hon Major John of Blackriver.
You may want to check into this information and confirm and add one more child JOHN on to the list of children of Hon Major John Campbell and Katherine Clairbourne....
Shortly John and Bligh were in the company of Dugald on Saltspring, which Dugald was now learning to manage. () Bligh and Dugald, about six years younger than Bligh, were firm friends. Long later, Bligh [died 1817] was to list Dugald as executor of his estate, although as it happened, Dugald predeceased Bligh. Bligh continued to sail for Campbell between London and Jamaica, still teaching John the ropes. Bligh thus met Campbell's correspondents at Lucea (where Campbell sent goods to Archibald Campbell). Once, Bligh made a map of Lucea Harbour. Perhaps he was just keeping his hand in, or, the map was for naval purposes? But there had been hurricanes in 1780 and 1781, and perhaps features of the harbour had shifted so radically it needed remapping? Whilst Campbell's Lynx was under Bligh's command, Campbell had his interest in shipping to Jamaica taken by a document - about 16 October, 1783, a deed of sale of 727 acres at St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, a matter connected with John Campbell, son of the late Hon. John Campbell of St Elizabeth. ()
