But it doesn't give lineage between Andrew CAMPBELL of Loudoun, son of Duncan (son of Donald, younger brother of Neil, ancestor of the main line of earls of Argyll) and his descendant (in 8th degree) - Matthew of Loudoun (father of the 1st lord of Loudoun). That George CAMPBELL wuold be somewhere here... Maybe somebody has the full lineage between this two persons?
