Campbell of Finab was intimately connected to the Independent Companies raised to police the Highlands during the lawless periods of Jacobite troubles. These companies were the predecessors of The Black Watch, which was formed in 1739. In addition, Finab took part in the disastrous Darian Expedition. He had one daughter, who married Major Duncan Campbell of Inverawe. Major Campbell was killed serving with The Black Watch at Ticonderoga in 1758.
