Adam Gordon1

d. 1093
     Adam Gordon was also known as Adam de Gourdon.1 He was born in Normandy, France.1 He died in 1093 in the Battle of Alnwick, Alnwick, England.1 He was probably the first Gordon to come to Britain from Normandy, possibly as early as 1057, preceding the Norman invasion. He assisted Malcolm Canmore in the defeat of "the usurper" Maclbeatha (MacBeth). He was then granted lands by Malcolm in Berwickshire which became called "Guerdun" from the family name. Adam's original name was probably spelled "de Gourdon" or something similar. In 1093 Adam accompanied Malcolm's invasion of England and was slain with him in the defeat near Alnwick.1
