Neill Campbell

Neill Campbell

Neill Campbell (c.1630–1692) was a governor of New Jersey, succeeding Gawen Lawrie, from 1686–1687. His brother was the 9th Earl of Argyll, who was executed in 1685 for his participation in the Monmouth rebellion. Campbell himself was exiled from Scotland.

Campbell was recalled to Scotland on business issues in March 1687. Andrew Hamilton became the governor in placement for him. Campbell never returned to New Jersey after that.

He came to East Jersey on a merchant ship called the 'Henry and Francis' with his son, John Campbell and his wife. They arrived at Perth Amboy, East Jersey on 5 September 1685.
