Published in three volumes, from 1903-1912, this massive study of the Gordons in Scotland is a testimony to the importance of this great noble family which for centuries played such a major role in the national life and politics of Scotland.
Given the size of the extended Gordon line with its many cadet branches, the problem was how to proceed.
The author begins with an extended bibliography of Gordon genealogy, working from earliest times toward the 19th century and examining all primary materials with Gordon information. The Gordons of Abergeldie, of Coclarachie,and of Gight is followed by extensive lists of Gordons in Scotland, including services of heirs, poll lists and registers of colleges.
Volume 2 continues with the inclusion of additional primary sources and with the genealogical and historical accounts of the Gordons of Lesmoir and the cadet lines of Crichie, Birkenburn, Terpersie, Leichestoun, and Newton, plus an examination of the Gordons in ballads. Volume 3 concludes with a biographical muster roll of Gordon officers in all areas of the military in Europe and America, as well as in Great Britain. The work overall is a substantial historical and genealogical study of the Gordons from many different aspects.
