Hello Zelonie
I have the following information for you. It is from a report from the Times of Ceylon of 27 December 1885 and quoted in the book "A History of the Ceylon Police".
"The funeral of Mrs Campbell who died at Karlsrhue after a serious illness took place at 5 pm on 8 December 1885. A large number of carriages took part in the funeral procession. Immediately behind the hearse a small body of European Constables under the command of Sergeant Mc Carthy marched in slow time. Campbell followed in the next carriage with Miss Campbell and Mrs Tranchell." From this account it appears that Mrs Campbell had only one daughter living with her at the time of her death. By the time of his retirement in 1891 Campbell had married again and had a son by the name Arthur Hamilton Gordon Campbell - named after the Governor of Ceylon at the time Sir Arthur hamilton Gordon. From the above however it is not clear whether Ms Moyle was the first or second wife of Campbell.
