    Agnes Campbell (1637- 1716), third daughter of James Campbell, Merchant in Edinburgh, and Isobell Orr, was baptised 1 September 1637, married, 26 June 1656, Andrew Anderson, son of Glasgow's first printer, and afterwards King's Printer for Scotland. After his death, 1 June 1676, she carried on his business under the name of Heirs and Successors of Andrew Anderson. Of her children, it seems that her son James was the only one to join the business. He is occasionally mentioned in documents and survived until at least 1692. Two of her grandchildren are mentioned in her will, one of whom John Campbell is described as corrector of her press. She remarried 22 March 1681 Patrick Tailfer [Telfer] merchant. He fell into debt and his creditors sought to seize his wife's goods. She resisted and eventually won her case before the Court of Session. The process was continued by his creditors, and she petitioned Parliament in 1693 that she should be empowered to act independently of her husband in all matters connected with her printing business. This was granted. (Acts of Parliament of Scotland ix 269) She died in 1716. Her will was registered 10 July 1717 and 28 October 1748.

    After death of Anderson (1676) his widow Agnes Campbell carried on the business with his son James. She was in constant conflict with other printers over the terms of her patent. On 12 October 1676, less than four months after her husband's death, Mrs Anderson petitioned the Privy Council asking that the whole trade in Bibles in Scotland should be restricted to herself and her son. (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser 3.v.46-47). On 6 March 1677 the son James Anderson accused Robert Sanders printer in Glasgow of infringing her patent. Sanders stood upon his rights, but because he had failed to depone upon the lybell he was imprisoned in the Tolbooth of Edinburgh, but within a month he was at liberty and printing again. Within a year the Privy Council were using him for official printing in Glasgow (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser 3.v.141-42; 616; 528; 540; 583). On 20 June 1678 she compained together with her son James that Gideon Shaw bookbinder, and several others, his partners,... have of late brought home printing presses and journeymen printers from abroad ... without ever seeking the petitioner's consent or license (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser 3.v.479-80). The printers concerned were cited to appear before the Council and in the meanwhile to cease printing. Nothing further seems to have been done. On 6 March 1680 Sanders was again brought before the Privy Council at the instance of James Anderson (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser but while Parliament reaffirmed the Anderson's privilege, the Clerk Register affirmed that the printing and reprinting of Acts of Parliament belonged to him as a privilege inherent in his office and a special gift from his Majesty, which could not be prejudged by Anderon's gift. As a result of the decree against Sanders, Mrs Anderson took out letters of horning against John Reid, an apprentice of hers who had not served his term, and had set up as a printer, and had him imprisoned in Edinburgh Tolbooth. He was released by order of the Privy Council on 6 January 1681. On 1 February 1681, he was freed on condition that he find caution 'to serve the Kings printer in the termes and for the space contained in his said band, and in the meantime doe ordaine him to close up his presse' (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser 3.vii.3, 31-33). On 17 November 1681, David Lindsay, who had been deputed by the Clerk Register to print the Acts of Parliament, pursued Mrs Anderson for interfering with his rights because her son had printed the Confession of Faith which he evidently regarded as an Act of Parliament 'to the complainer's great prejudice and the abuse of the lieges by incorrect printing'. At the end of 1683, Agnes Campbell and James Anderson her son complained that John Reid in manifest contempt of that decree did not only desert the complainer's service, but set up a press. The Privy Council found that Reid had served ' for a considerable time' and allowed him to continue printing until the case in the Court of Session was settled (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser 3.viii. 250-251). In 1684 the Heirs were pursued, along with Robert Sanders of Glasgow for reprinting the Aberdeen Almanacks. With the consent of the magistrates of Aberdeen, John Forbes invoked the help of the Privy Council and their decision was wholeheartedly in his favour (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser 3. viii. 384). The office of Printer to the General Assembly fell vacant in 1680. Mrs Anderson made application for the post, but the Assembly gave it to the Edinburgh printer George Mosman. On the death of Mosman's widow in 1712, she became their printer, having bought Mosman's stock. Her patent fell to expire on 12 May 1712. a partnership of Robert Freebairn, James Watson and the King's Printer for England, John Baskett, asked for the patent and received it on 11 August 1711. Mrs Anderson negotiated with Baskett and won Freebairn over to exclude Watson, and obtained a new patent iin favour of Freebairn and Baskett on 8 December 1714. Watson pursued them in the courts and won continually. When Freebairn joined the Pretender, Mrs Anderson and Baskett obtained a new patent in their favour 6 July 1716. The Scottish courts however upheld Watson's right to a third share in the patent. Thus all three, Baskett, Mrs Anderson and Watson acted for a time as King's Printers. On 24 July 1716 Agnes Campbell died. Her grandchildren continued her suit, which ended in the House of Lords in 1718 with a victory for Watson. The Valleyfield papermill at Pennycuik was started by Mrs Anderson in 1709 'That the paper-mill of Pennycook lying on the water of Esk ... formerly belonging to the deceast Mris Anderson, her late Majesties Printer ... are to be sett in tack'. Caledonian Mercury 7 March 1726. Her will was registered 10 July 1717 (Bann. Misc.ii.284-289) and 28 October 1748. In 1678 her workmen claimed that they were exempted by the Royal Patent from watching and warding. This concesssion was confirmed by order of the Privy Council 21 May 1685 (NLS L.C.Fol.75(76)) The claimants in 1678 were Patrick Ramsay, Andrew Cuninghame, James Hepburne, John Broun, James Thomsone, Mr Alexander Glen, William Carron, James Atchiesone, James Balmanie, John Law, Edward Smith, John Annand, James Lightbody, Alexander Lightbody, William Annand and James Reid (Register of the Privy Council of Scotland Ser. 3 v. 441.) John Reid was an apprentice of hers and set up as a printer in 1680.

It was agreed and a price set; there is an obligatioun for prenting of the Bibyll in the Register of the Privy 18 July 1576, which shows that the Regent Morton had arranged for the books to be paid for from a levy on the parishes, the edition to be followed was a Genevan edition of 1561. Mr George Young, servant to the Abbot of Dunfermline was to correct the proofs; and Robert Pont compiled the calendar and preliminary tables. Licence was obtained from the Privy Council giving Arbuthnet and Bassandyne the sole right of printing Bibles in Scotland for ten years. On 11 January 1577, Arbuthnet complained of delay in the printing, and Bassandyne was ordered to hand the printing over to his partner. Bassandyne died 18 October 1577. On 1 April 1579 Arbuthnet was granted licence to print, sell and import psalm books, prayers, and catechisms for seven years. In the same year the Bible was published, and Arbuthnet was appointed King's Printer 24 Aug 1579; He died 1 September 1585. Wife Agnes Pennycuike children Alesone Agnes Thomas George and John. Will of Alexander Arbuthnet burgess registered 22 April 1586.

    Mr Fraser 'who had been manager of a small paper-mill belonging to Mr Adrian Watkins, who held the patents of King's Printer and Stationer' persuaded Guthrie and Arbuthnot to erect a papermill with five vats at Polton. The feu-charter and water-rights were granted by Calderwood of Polton in 1768. Through the inexperience of partners in the business the result was a fiasco, Guthrie and Arbuthnot became bankrupt in 1772 and the mill was rouped in 1774. The whole transaction involved the great banking house of Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo in a considerable financial loss.
