Kennedy, Culzean Charters from c.1200

Thankyou Susan.
We have most of the early Great Britain government books (Scotland) written in Latin here in our State Library of South Australia, the Latin being no problem as you can easily read the names, dates and places
I have a Gilbert Kennedy (seemingly sheriff of Carrick) married to Christian Adair who had a son Roland (sometimes listed as Roland Adair) in Wigtownshire, Scotland c.1457. Gilbert Kennedy appears to have died about 1455, possibly in a battle in the civil (Bishop's) war. Roland Adair had a son William Adair who had Dunskey Castle, Wigtownshire
and other properties in the Kirkmaiden / Stranraer area.

As there were a number of Gilbert Kennedys around about that time I thought it would be great to see a book on "Culzean Charters" if possible. I had read that the Carrick/Culzean Kennedys did not have to "register/record" their land dealings with the Government (appears they were a "Government" in themselves in their area of Carrick, Ayr and Wigtownshire). Hence I feel that some of their land dealings etc. may not appear in the RMS, Exchequer Rolls, etc of the Scottish Government.

Would the books at Mitchell be the Scottish Government books or specific books on Kennedys ?
