The Campbell family is a family of Scottish-American hunters that have existed for several generations.

Known members[]


  • Samuel Campbell (deceased) - He was the father of Mary and the father-in-law of John Winchester. He was the maternal grandfather of Sam Winchester and Dean Winchester. His grandson, Sam, was named after him. Deanna and he were both hunters and raised Mary to be one as well. He was killed by Azazel. He was sent to Heaven but brought back to life along with other Campbell relatives presumably by Crowley. In exchange for the resurrection of Mary, Samuel was to capture Alphas in order to obtain the location to Purgatory. He is possessed by a Khan worm before he is killed again by his grandson Sam.
  • Deanna Campbell (deceased) - She is the wife of Samuel. She was the mother of Mary and the mother-in-law of John. She was the maternal grandmother of Sam and Dean.

  • Mary Winchester (née Campbell) (deceased) - She was the wife of John and the mother of Sam and Dean. She named her two sons after her deceased parents, Samuel and Deanna. Her parents raised her as a hunter, but she gave up hunting after she met John and both her parents were killed by Azazel. She was killed by Azazel when Sam was six months old. This was because she interrupted Azazel while he was feeding Sam demon blood. She was resurrected by the Darkness in 2016 as a way of thanking Dean for reuniting the Darkness and God, although later accidentally killed by Jack.
