Welcome Scott! From what i know about the Gordons, they took the name from Gordon of Berwickshire, it is thought to be or Norman origins. Also the Gordons are associated with Kenmure in Scotland. Luceo Non Uro is the MacKenzie motto meaning I shine not burn. Thier family origins were believed to have begun in the early 13th century. They were of pure Celtic descent, not like many of the other clans of Norman origins. 1267 , you ancestors were at Eilean Donan at Loch Duich in Scotland. As far as he Gordons go..the first known in Scotland was Adam de Gordoun, he was in Scotland during the time of Julius Caesar, it was not until around 1400 that the Gordoun name lost the "u". I love to do research on Scottish surnames and septs. Well..again welcome and be proud of yer heritage!
Come in ....out of the darkness, so that yer heart may sing God's praises!
