James Colquhoun Campbell (1813 – 9 November 1895)[1] was a Scottish-born Welsh Anglican bishop.

Born at Stonefield, Argyllshire, he was the son of James Campbell and his wife Wilhelmina, the daughter of Sir James Colquhoun, 2nd Baronet.[2] Campbell was educated in Chester and then at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1836 and a Master of Arts three years later.[3][4] In 1859, he received a Doctor of Divinity.[4]

Campbell became vicar in Roath in 1840 and was subsequently appointed rector in Merthyr Tydfil in 1844.[4] He was nominated Archdeacon of Llandaff in 1857 and was consecrated 70th Bishop of Bangor in 1859.[4] After more than forty years in this post, Campbell retired in 1890 and died at Hastings five years later.[1]

In 1840, he married Blanche, the daughter of John Bruce Pryce.[2]
