Taget til fange 1346 ved Durham.

'Strange enough there is an incomplete charter by Robert II to Gilberto de Carryk de omnibus suis terris in bk 3 no 8 of the crown records and must have been in the early part of that monarch's reign much about the same time that John Kennedy obtained his. This Gilbert de Carrick coexistent with John Kennedy of Dunure must have been one of the direct representatives of the de Carrick family. The author then quotes from the 'Historical Account of the Noble Family of Kennedy' (anon. 1849 Edinburgh) "there is not in the charter chest of the Marquis of Ailsa any original grant of the barony of Dunure whereby it might be seen how that estate came into the family... about 1290 a charter was granted by Malcolm earl of Lennox in favour of Gilbert de Carrick of the lands of Bukmonyn-Kennedy, Cromicaine and Blairfode in the earldom of Lennox (*on 28 oct 1393 Duncan Earl of Lennox confirms a grant by Sir Gilbert Kennedy of Dunure in favour of John Kennedy son of Fergus Kennedy of the lands of Buckmonyn in the earldom of Lennox. The presumption here is that Sir Gilbert Kennedy of Dunure had succeeded Sir Gilbert de Carrick as heir to these lands when he granted them to John Kennedy son of Fergus Kennedy.) This Gilbert de Carrick was one of the prisoners taken at the battle of Durham in 1346. [Paterson disputes this: the editor must be wrong, he writes; supposing him to be only 21 in 1290 when he succeeded his father sir gilbert he would have been 75 at the battle of durham! in short there is no evidence that this Kennedy was related to the de Carricks save the lands he possessed and some similarities in the family arms] The earliest charter in Lord Ailsa's charter chest is 18 jan 1357 by David II confirming for John de Kennedy all the lands acquired by him. This is the first time the name of Kennedy appears in the title deeds. It has been supposed that this John de Kennedy who in another charter about the same period is called 'of Dunure' changed the name from Carrick to Kennedy."
