Newly discovered Gordon Branches


These are newly identified Gordon branches and small groups of Gordon branches that have yet-to-be-classified.

HOUSE OF GORDON TREE

The simplified family tree at left and below represents nearly 1,000 years of documented Gordon family history. Of the 150+ known branches of Gordon, there are at least 3 major branches of the Gordon family descending from Adam de Gordoun (b. 1035 in Normandy, France - d. 1093 in Northumberland, England). Many theories on different lines have been proposed over the centuries for Gordon lineages, and we are putting all of them to the test through this project. The DNA results presented in the following pages are ordered in accordance with the research works by Dr. Edward Gordon of Cairnfield and his predecessor Dr. J M Bulloch, as follows:

1. The Seton-Gordons (Highlands)
2. The "Jock & Tam" Gordons (Highlands)
3. Sir William Gordon (Lowlands)
4. Newly discovered Gordon branches
5. Yet to be classified Gordon branches
6 .Gordon Septs
