John Campbell

Campbell, John, 1st Lord Campbell (1779–1861). Lawyer and biographer, son of the minister of Cupar–Fife, had a highly successful career as a lawyer, and held the offices successively of Solicitor and Attorney–General, Lord Chancellor of Ireland, Lord Chief Justice, and Lord Chancellor. His contributions to literature were Lives of the Chancellors and Lives of the Chief Justices. These works, though deficient in research and accuracy, often unfair in judgments of character, and loose and diffuse in style, are interesting and full of information.
