About John Kennedy of Dunure & Cassilis

From ODNB:

The eldest of James Kennedy's three sons, John, was however designated as of Dunure and Cassillis in 1429, suggesting that he had then succeeded to those parts of the family estates at least. But in 1431 John was arrested for treason and subsequently went into exile, possibly as a result of his connections with Archibald, fifth earl of Douglas, who was arrested at the same time. The precise nature of John's treason remains mysterious, as does his ultimate fate.
