Historical NotesEdit

  • Chief George Gordon, 4th Earl of Huntly was General of the forces on the Borders who opposed the forces of Henry VIII of England and Gordon had many victorious encounters. He was however later killed at the Battle of Corrichie in 1562 fighting against the forces of James Stuart (half-brother to Queen Mary). Gordon was killed and his son, Sir John, and other members of his family were later executed at Aberdeen.
  • In 1547 James Gordon was killed at the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh and in 1562 Alexander Gordon took part in the earl of Huntly's rising against Mary, Queen of Scots.
