    HISTORY OF THE HOUSE OF GORDON
    "Sir Thomas, as he seems to have been knighted as well as his father, was present when his sovereign, William the Lion, was taken prisoner at Alnwick in 1173, and on the king's return from a year of captivity, was one of his most constant supporters during the remainder of his reign amid the ever recurring revolts in Galloway, Ross, Caithness, and other parts of the crown. He died about the same time as King William, that is 1214, and was succeeded by his son."

    from www.electricscotland.com on Clan Gordon:

    The elder son, Richard de Gordon, granted, between 1150 and 1160, certain lands to the monks of Kelso, and died in 1200. His son, Sir Thomas de Gordon. confirmed by charter these donations, and his son and successor, also named Thomas, made additional grants to the same monks, as well as to the religious of Coldstream. He died in 1285, without male issue, and his only daughter, Alicia, marrying her cousin Adam de Gordon, the son of Adam, younger brother of Richard above mentioned, the two branches of the family this became united.
