How exciting to find your message about the McGibbon family history. My grandfather was Charles Stewart McGibbon and so far I have traced back to my greatx5 grandfather Wiliam McGibbon born 1715 in Inveraray married to Davina Campbell. William's son Archibald is my greatx4 grandfather the brother of Donald. I managed to trace Archibald's son John McGibbon to 1814 and his marriage parish record to Catherine Buchanan in Kilmodan, Argyll. I have not been able to find any of the OPR's for Johns Birth or his father Archibald or for William. I got them from the IGI. I was told that the McGibbon side of my family can be traced back to the clan campbell and that at some point they changed the surname from MacGibbon to McGibbon but I am not sure when this happened. I am trying to find any record of Mcgibbon in Inveraray and my next step will be to go visit and see if I can find anything in Inveraray itself hoefully though not at the jail ;) It's amazing I have been going to visit Inveraray on holiday since I was a child but never knew my family history was connected to the area. :)) I did not previously know of the other children William and davina had so that is a fabulous addition to my history. Thanks for posting If I find out anymore I will let
