Genealogy and notes taken from "History of the Counties of Ayr and Wigtown"
by James Paterson, vol 1--Kyle, Edinburgh: 1863

As promised, here is the lineage he sets out:

1. George Campbell

2. George Campbell had a charter of confirmation under the great seal dated
11 Nov 1537. I believe the latin says 'George, son of George CAMPBELL,
whose father was Hew CAMPBELL of Loudoun, of Bryntwood.'

3. James Campbell of Bruntwood is known from a renunciation of 7 Nov 1547
granted by Helen SIMSON of the land of Killoch to Hew CAMPBELL, son of James
CAMPBELL of Bruntwood.

4. Hew Campbell of Killoch had a feu charter fom the Commendator of Melrose
dated 20 My 1556 for the lands of Lochlee, Auchinbrain, and Killoch.

5. Hew Campbell of Killoch resigns his lands in favor of his son in 1567.

6. Also the above Hew Campbell, younger, acquired the lands of Holehouse 28
Oct 1577.

7. George Campbell of Killoch is recognized as heir to Hew Campbell the
younger in 1605 in Barnaughthill and the aforementioned lands. This George
is the one mentioned in Hew, Lord Loudoun's entail in 1613. He's mentioned
in wills through 1616. His daughter, Mary CAMPBELL, married the Laird of
Montgarswood, James CAMPBELL. And he had a son who succeeded.

8. Hugh Campbell of Killoch, in 1634 "was served heir to Lord Loudoun as
Baillie of Kylesmuir." This Hugh was alive al leat through 1654.

***Note, Killoch is found near the boundary of Mauchline and Galston*****

This concludes what he has on the Campbells of Killoch.
