Elidor Campbell was born 7 May 1881 in Cawdor Castle, Nairnshire, Scotland, United Kingdom to Frederick Archibald Vaughan Campbell, 3rd Earl Cawdor (1847-1911) and Edith Georgiana Turnor (1844-1926) and died 15 December 1957 of unspecified causes. He married Violet Antoniette Bulwer-Marsh (c1882-1975) . Notable ancestors include Charlemagne (747-814), Henry II of England (1133-1189), William I of England (1027-1087), Hugh Capet (c940-996), Alfred the Great (849-899), Robert I of Scotland (1274-1329). Ancestors are from the United Kingdom, Poland, France, England, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Israel, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, Belarus, Italy, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Scotland, Turkey, the Byzantine Empire, Sweden.

His father's father's mother's father's mother was a great-great-great-great-aunt of Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom (1926) (through the late Queen Mother, a daughter of Nina Cavendish-Bentinck), which makes Elidor and his siblings that monarch's fifth-cousins.

Elidor occasionally visited the Weigall home. Priscilla Weigall described him in this way to his out-of-wedlock daughter in 1975: "Heather, he was a dear man, quiet but charming, someone I especially liked. Of all the hordes of people, he was my favourite. He was so gentle and patient, always the same, different as chalk and cheese to Mummy's temperament.[1]"
