Jenny Cameron was the sister of Hugh, chief of Clan Cameron.
In her brother's absence, Jenny led three hundred Cameron troops to join Charles Stuart's forces at Glenfinnan, and continued on with them to Preston. Claire Fraser enlists her help in organizing a makeshift hospital in which to treat the wounded after the Battle of Prestonpans.

Claire enlists Jenny's help in setting up the field hospital at Tranent during the Battle of Prestonpans
A force to be reckoned with, Jenny doesn't like to miss out on the excitement during the rebellion, and likes to be in charge.
Jenny has a freckly face and an undershot jaw, which Claire likens to a "good-humored bulldog".
- Jenny was originally a medieval English diminutive of Jane, a feminine form of the name John. John was ultimately derived from the Hebrew name יוֹחָנָן (Yochanan) meaning "YAHWEH is gracious".
- Cameron comes from the Gaelic cam-shron meaning "crooked nose" or "hooked nose".
- The biography of Jeanie (Jenny) Cameron is thought to be a compilation of several different women of the same name.
