Do you know why Gordon's do not call themself "clan"? They usually refer to themselves as "house of "?


Ok, Egan see if you can find this one! Tag!


(Egan really is extremely intelligent but we can't let him know that so keep this a secret ok folks) actually he's so intelligent he's weird! Haven't decided what language he speaks, something called Jersey accent gets in the way.

Do DA! Do Da!

Although the Gordon family in Scotland rose to become the predominant power in the northeast of Scotland there were not natives to that part nor to Scotland and were considered Feudal rather than Gaelic in origin.

Of Norman descent they were one of the many famnilies welcomes into his kingdom by David I. By the early 12th century they had settled in the village and estates of Gordon, near Kelso in the Scottish Borders under the protection of their kinsman, the Earl of Dunbar.

Because the Gordon family did not start as a "clan" it is referred to as the House of Gordon which comes from their Norman descent.

Many publications use the more common Clan term as does the book "Scottish Clan and Family Encyclopedia" which is the premiere authority.

Some Gordons claim to be a clan while others use "house". Both are synonymous and either term is proper.


A Gordon for me
A Gordon for me
if ye're no a Gordon
ye're no use to me.

The black watch are braw
the Seaforths and a',
But the cocky wee Gordon
the pride o' them a'.


There is also a site of the House of Gordon Scotland

enjoy all ya Gordons

Just trying to stay warm on this winters night.

btw, my in-laws have traveled to the British Isles. Knowing my fascination with family history, they bought us a wool blanket, with the Ancient Gordon tartan!

I am a McNeill on my father's side of the family, and thus, a sept on the MacNeil of Barra clan, but I also have connections to Clan Gordon through my mother, who was a Gordon. I met representatives of the House of Gordon at the Richmond Highland games last oct., and was invited to join.

Yes...whenever one has a chance to meet members of the family, such as at Scottish Games or festivals, the folks manning the booth are very friendly and welcoming.
