John Campbell                                      1772-1809               (1st Husband)
John Campbell, 4th of Islay and of Woodhall was the son of Walter Campbell, 9th of Skipness and 3rd of Shawfield and Eleanora Kerr. He married Lady Charlotte Susan Maria Campbell, daughter of Field Marshal John Campbell, 5th Duke of Argyll and Elizabeth Gunning, Baroness Hamilton of Hameldon, on 21 June 1796. He died on 15 March 1809. He gained the rank of Colonel in the Argyllshire Militia. He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for Arygll and Ayr. He lived at Shawfield, Scotland.
Charlotte Susan Maria Campbell       1775-1861
  Born in London on January 28, 1775, the daughter of Elizabeth Gunning and John Campbell, 5th duke of Argyll, Charlotte Campbell's lineage assured her a home at Inverary Castle, the family seat in Scotland. Known for her beauty, she could have married suitors with more money or station, but she chose John Campbell, a poor cousin, moved with him to Edinburgh, and had nine children in thirteen years. Widowed in 1809 and soon destitute, she took a post as lady-in-waiting to Caroline of Brunswick , then princess of Wales, who was separated from Prince George (George IV) and the subject of slander. In 1815, Charlotte left royal service upon publication of her first novel.
  When she married the Reverend Edward John Bury, rector of Lichfield, in 1818, Charlotte's parents and children objected vehemently.
Like Charlotte's first husband, Bury was poor; his tastes, however, were expensive. Lady Charlotte had two more children during her second marriage and began to publish prolifically to support the family. When her husband died in 1832, leaving Charlotte once again indebted, she increased her literary output but did not improve her situation. But in 1838, she published Diary Illustrative of the Times of George IV, an account of her experiences in Caroline of Brunswick's court and had her first bestseller. Public criticism for having violated the queen's privacy, albeit sympathetically, forced Charlotte into seclusion, but the book temporarily warded off creditors. Though a handful of novels followed, Charlotte Bury never enjoyed a steady income. She outlived eight of her children and died impoverished at her London home at age 86.
