The family appear to be descended from the Campbells of Ardkinglas via the Campbells of Reroch. John Campbell, 3rd of Succoth registered the Campbell arms and crest in 1672. His grandson Archibald Campbell (later, 6th of Succoth) married Margaret heiress of John Wallace of Ellerslie in 1731 and matriculated the quartered coat of Succoth and Ellerslie in February 1742. The Wallace quarter at this time only having a bordure compony and Archibald adopted the Wallace crest of a dexter arm brandishing a sword along with the motto; LIBERTAS.

Archibald's eldest son, Ilay Campbell, who was Solicitor General in 1783, Lord Advocate in 1784 and Lord President of the Court of Sessions 1789 - 1808, was created a baronet of the United Kingdom on 17th September 1808. In the same year he matriculated his arms changing the Wallace bordure to counter compony and reverting to the Campbell crest and motto.

Society member, Sir Ilay Campbell, is the 7th baronet of Succoth and is a renowned collector and expert in armorial bookplates. The illustration as one of several bookplates commissioned by Sir Ilay and is by Marco Foppoli.
