CAMPBELL, of Cessnock & Treesbank may be found in the following references:-

Ayrshire Families, ii 223-9 [available from LDS]

Paterson's Ayr, ii 68-71 [available from LDS]

Burke's Landed Gentry caveat lector

The Genealogist, NS xxvi, 190-1

  "The Campbell's, since their arrival at the beginning of the fourteenth century, had embarked on an expansionist programe, which by 1564 saw them spread throughout the whole of Kyle.  Their introduction from the western highland's had come through the marriage of Sir Douglas CAMPBELL, a son of the family of Lochaw, to Sarah CRAUFORD, daughter and heiress of the last of the Craufords of Loudon. Inheritance included not only substantial barony on Loudon, but also the position of the hereditary Sheriff of Ayr, covering in it's authority, the whole of Kyle (with the exception of the burgh lands of Ayr).".....

Kyle, although relatively free of civil conflict, any disputes that did arise, frequently have connection with promotion of Campbell ambitions.. One of the many controversies they became involved in was the instigation of the murder of  KENNEDY, Earl of Cassillis in 1527 and a particularly outrageous crime earlier with the murder of the Laird of Corsintoun, within the
Church of Cumnock of which Patrick Dunbar of Corsincon (or Corsintoun) in 1512 was murdered while attending mass.  Andrew CAMPBELL was taken and hanged, while his kinsmen were put to the horn, outlawed.
