From "History of the Counties of Ayr and Wigtown" by James Paterson, vol 1--Kyle, Edinburgh: 1863
CAMPBELLS of KINZEANCLEUCHE--Ayrshire—Mauchline Parish A branch of the Loudoun family.It stood fifth in the deed of entail that was discussed under the Killoch Campbells.The first of this line is believed by Paterson to have been a son of Sir George Campbell of Loudoun, born about the end of 15th century:
1.This is the Hew CAMPBELL of Kinzeancleuche mentioned by Knox in his History of the Reformation, who was offended by those who held the kirk of Mauchline so that Wishart could not enter (1544).
2.He was succeeded by Robert CAMPBELL of Kinzeancleuche who was a close friend of Knox and who was with Knox in his last illness.In other documents he appears: (1) on a list of absentees from the assize on the "Lairds of Lochnorris and Ekles (14 Nov 1544), (2) cautioner in 1559 for John WILLOK, who was denounced as a rebel for usurping the right of the church, (3) in 1566 (?) he was surety for William JOHNSTONE, bower, burgess of Edinburgh who was one of many suspicioned in the murder of David Riccio.
