Perhaps there is a Scottish link with the name Archibald and using middle name McKinley - assuming you have ruled out McKinley as coming from the Chamberlain side?

He may not have been born in Newcastle, but perhaps grew up there. It also looks like he may be under a different surname pre 1901! I have had a quick look at Archie's born in Northumberland  around 1870, but nothing stands out. Might he have emigrated if no death is found in England?

I note on the 1901 census both Archibald & Elizabeth were single.

This might be worth following up, no census returns in Durham or Northumberland.

MIDDLETON, ARCHIBALD  CAMPBELL     - 
GRO Reference: 1870  S Quarter in ULVERSTONE  Volume 08E  Page 679

   Archibald Campbell Middleton
Baptism Date:   18 Sep 1870
Baptism Place:   Holy Trinity, Millom, Cumberland
Mother:   Elizabeth Middleton

The 1871 original census on Ancestry is quite messy, so family search transcript below, his mother on same record.

PS: I checked the records on https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk and followed the nearest birth to 1870 trough but nothing stood out.

There is an Archibald Middleton McKinley born 1866, Durham, in Acton in the 1921 census free index.
Might be an engineer.

Living with Eliza McKinley, born 1865 Durham.
Possible marriage in Fulham in 1920?

Could be going right down the rabbit hole but As Jonw75’s find has appeal There is this chap in Australia, an Engine Fitter


18 Jan 1892 NSW Police Gazette

Goulburn;  a warrant has been issued by the Goulburn Bench for the arrest of Archibald McKinley, charged with fraudulently obtaining the sum of £15 10s from Albert Edward Hobday, Auburn Street, Goulburn, on the 31st Ultimo.  Offender is about 27 years of age, about 5ft 7 ins high, slim build, fair complexion, fair moustache only, slightly stooped shoulders, dressed in dark sac suit and hard black felt hat; an engine fitter  ; a scotchman. Left Goulburn by train on 31sr Ultimo, accompanied by his wife


added. I think he can be ruled out.
