Gordon 1

: Gordon of Gordon, Gordon of Huntly
Because of similarities between their coats-of-arms, it is thought not unlikely that the Gordons were originally a cadet branch of the family of Swinton. There are many Gordons mentioned in early records. The following pulls together the information shown in TSP Huntly but is not 'secure' until the Sir Adam of Gordon who was Justiciar of Lothian in 1305 and was one of the Ambassadors who carried the famous 'Declaration of Arbroath' to the Pope in 1320. That Sir Adam was the first to be named in BP1934 Huntly.

A Sir Adam of Gordon d c 1328, Justiciar of Lothian, Ambassador TSP names Sir Adam's wife but reports that her "family is unknown". A site visitor CD, 16.09.08 has kindly drawn our attention to the fact that some web sites tentatively suggest that she was daughter of Sir David of Strathbogie, Earl of Atholl, by Isabella Chilham some of whose lands eventually came to this family and formed the basis of the earldom of Huntly. We have not seen this supported by any reputable source.
