      By the time of the 1831 bond, Captain Neil Campbell was deceased.


      The 1832-4 rental mentions Miss Jane C Campbell still living at Glendaruel House, but also provision is made for a widow and children.


      The fishing return is headed R[obert] H[ume] Campbell (1846-1921) who sold Glendaruel in c.1857.


      The agreement between Duncan Campbell, later of Orchyard and later still of Glendaruel, is in the form of an indenture whereby Jean Pierre agrees to be Duncan's servant for 11 years for £5 sterling per annum.
