The Carter-Campbell of Possil arms
The Carter-Campbell of Possil Armorial Bearings are held by the head of the family, now resident at Craigenputtock, Dumfriesshire, Scotland. It represents the union of two land owning families in 1864: the Carters of Castle Martin, County Kildare, Ireland and the Campbells of Possil Lanarkshire, Scotland.
The armorial bearings of these two individual families (shown below) were officially combined by the Lord Lyon King of Arms in Scotland to form the Carter-Campbell of Possil Armorial Bearings.
The Campbell of Possil crest, crest badge and motto were incorporated into the amalgamated coat of arms (see to the right of this page).
Campbell of Possil
This family is descended from Sir Colin Campbell of Glenorchy, Earls of Breadalbane (see that title). Sir Colin was the second son of Duncan Campbell, 1st Lord Campbell who was Uncle and Guardian of Colin 1st Earl of Argyll in 1453 (see Campbell Dukes of Argyll). See Burke's Landed Gentry of Great Britain 19th edition volume I, The Kingdom of Scotland. See also Campbell Barons Colgrain and Campbell of Inverneill in this volume.
The family is a branch of the Campbells of Kinloch, an off shoot of the Campbells of Murthlie, who sprang from a younger son of Campbell of Lawers (see Burke's Peerage and Gentry).
Carter of Castle Martin
This family: Boyle Carter and Shaen Carter are descended from Carter of Shaen Manor, County Mayo and the Carters of Robertstown, County Meath (see Burke's Irish Landed Gentry).

Union of the two Families
This was the union of two land owning families, the Carters of the Castle Martin estate, County Kildare, Ireland and the Campbells of the Possil estate, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Colonel Thomas Tupper Carter (Lord Lieutenant and Justice of the Peace, Argyllshire and grandson of the Rt. Hon Thomas Carter Master of the Rolls and son of Admiral John Carter R.N.) married Miss Emily Georgina Campbell of Possil IV (granddaughter of Colonel Alexander Campbell of Possil) in 1864. Their matrimonal home was the Fascadale estate, Ardrishaig, Argyllshire. Miss Emily Georgina Campbell of Possil IV who owned the Possil estate also wished to retain her surname and Colonel Thomas Tupper Carter therefore added the name of Campbell to his surname in 1864.
Extract from the Matriculation of the Carter of Castle Martin Coat of Arms: "To all and singular to whom these Presents shall come to Arthur Edward Vicars Esquire of S. A. Ulster King of Arms and Principal Herald of all Ireland, Registrar and Knight attendant on the most Illustrious Order of St Patrick do hereby Certify and declare that the Armorial Bearings above do picted viz Argent, to lions rampant combatant sable Crest on a murral Crown of charged with three buckles, a talbot passant, argent motto "Victrix Patientia Duris" do of right belong and appertain unto Thomas Tupper Carter Esquire Colonel (retired) Corps of Royal Engineers and to his descendants with their due and proper differences according to the laws of Arms in Witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed these presents and affixed hereto my official Seal this twenty third day of December in the fifty seventh year of the Reign of Our Sovereign Queen Victoria by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland Queen defender of the Faith and so forth and in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred and ninety three."
Lamont-Campbell of Possil
(See Cadet families of Clan Lamont).
17th Century and Civil War
In 1646 the Clan Campbell's neighbours were the Clan Lamont. The Clan Campbell had steadily encroached onto the Clan Lamont's land.
After the battle of Inverlochy in 1645, the Clan Lamont took the opportunity to lay waste the Campbell's territory. The following year the all-powerful Clan Campbell army invaded the Clan Lamont lands by taking their Castles Toward and Ascog. The Clan Chief Sir James Lamont surrendered after accepting fair terms for his people, but despite this the Campbells then slaughtered over two hundred of Lamont's men, women and children. Elsewhere, one tree was said to have carried thirty five bodies from its branches and nearby another thirty six of Lamont's men had been buried alive. The two Lamont Castles were decimated and Sir James Lamont was thrown into a dungeon for five years. This event became known as the Dunoon Masacre.
The Campbells acquired much of the Lamont lands in Cowal by means fair and foul. One of the fair ways was for a Campbell to marry a Lamont heiress, and so inherit the estate. This is an instance of the reverse.
In 1844, the 20th Chief of Clan Lamont: Archibald James Lamont, married Harriet Campbell of Possil, after the death of his first wife. Their son, Celestine Norman Lamont, born in 1858, then inherited Possil, and became the first Lamont-Campbell of Possil. The addition of the Campbell name was a condition of the inheritance. However, they remained Lamonts, subject to the Chief of Clan Lamont.
The Possil estates being located to the north of Glasgow were separate from the traditional land in Cowal.

Signet rings worn by the family members down the generations bore the crests (on the left). In the painting of Admiral John Carter R.N. 1820 (shown above) he is wearing his signet ring with a blue stone bearing the Carter of Castle Martin Crest.
This ring was subsequently inherited by Colonel Duncan Carter-Campbell in the 1930s by which time it had become badly worn.
