William Gordon, had charters of parts of the barony of Craichlaw, in the parish of Kirkcowan and county of Wigtown. He married Janet Baillie, and was ancestor of the Gordons of Craighlaw. The principal industry has always been agriculture, although in the 19th century two woollen mills were erected on the River Tarf nearby.
