Note: N65549 !Sir Hugh Campbell of Loudoun, Sheriff of Ayr. He had a charter of the King's lands of Garvanehid, Turnbery, &c., 13th March 1526. In 1527, he attacked and killed the Earl of Cassillis at Prestwick, the Earl being then on his way to the court of Edinburgh. There were, of course, a number of followers on both sides. The cause of the feud seems to be unknown; but the death of the Earl was followed by numerous raids and slaughters on both sides, until a reconciliation between the families was effected. He had, in 1544, a remission for all crimes prior to that date. His name occurs in charters and other documents down till 1561. He and his spouse, Margaret Stewart, had a charter of the lands of Newmylns, with the mill and granary, dated 4th October 1533. He had also a charter of the lands of Terrinzeane, 10th August 1546. By his first wife, Lady Elizabeth Steart, daughter of the Earl of Lennox, he had issue. By his second wife, Agnes Drummond, he had no issue. He was succeeded by his son.
