      "[M]aster of arts; was granted by a royal decree of 1543, entitled Literas Legitimationis Nicola Campbell, all legal and natural rights "as if said Nicholas had been born in lawful wedlock"; was probably the "Nicolaus Campbell, nobilis," from the Diocese of St. Andrews who was a candidate for the M.A. degree at the Univ. of Paris, 1552; Dean of Lismore Cathedral, c. 1564-87; lord of Keithick, Dalvany and Craignatie, Perthshire; bailie of Crunan." [Brice McAdoo Clagett, citation details below]

      He lies under a monumental stone at Bendochy parish church. The inscription, translated from Latin, reads:

      Under this tomb there lies
      the memory of
      the very former and
      highly skillful man of God
      Master Nicholas Campbell of Keithick
      who was the grandson of the
      former Earl of Argyll
      through the
      Venerable Father, Lord Donald Campbell,
      Abbot of Cupar,
      who departed this life in the
      year 1587
      in the year of his age 70.
