There are 2 Campbell lines in the Bass River area, Old Peter Campbell who arrived via Miramichi area around 1825 or possibly earlier and then there were 7 Campbell's who immigrated from PEI around 1840's. Both families are believed to have originated in Scotland and they generally follow the traditional naming practices of In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, both the Scots and the Irish had a frequently used scheme for child naming. The first born male child was normally named after the paternal grandfather; likewise, the first born female child was named after the maternal grandmother. The second borne male child was named after the maternal grandfather and the second borne female child was named after the paternal grandmother. Only with the third born son and daughter, did you use the names of the parents, if those names differed from those of the grandparents.
Kent County Gen Web http://www.rootsweb.com/~nbken/ is a great place to start your search and the Island Register http://www.islandregister.com/gindex.html
good luck!!

Hi, Neil,

I am shocked. I don't think I've ever seen anyone who has heard of Marion Howell!!!! I've been asking about her for years.

My records say that Duncan was born in 1804 and married in 1821, but I don't really know anything about those years. How did you get the Feb 6 date??? Do you know anything else about her? I'd about convinced myself that Marion was a ghost.

I come into the line via his daughter Catherine 1842-1895. I'd love to hear about anything you know and will be happy to share what I have.

Surnames: Campbell, Clee
There were 3 brothers who came PEI to Bass River. Peter was the first who came up the river to Bass River. Duncan and John came a little later. There are still Campbell's living in Bass River. One of the brothers had 2 sons - William and John who married 2 sisters - Harriet and Amelia in Bass River on Dec 1835. My grandmother was a decendent of this family. At age 16, she left Bass River as a nanny to a minister and his wife by covered wagon and went to Russell, Manitoba. She later married Henry Clee.
