"Of the family of Beldornie, now of Wardhouse, Jean Gordon, mother of the (7th) laird, and Marie his sister are in 1704 returned as Papists; whilst in 1732 it was reported to the Presbytery that James Gordon, of Beldornie, was a Papist, and that priests met at his house. Indeed, two of his sons were educated at the Scots Monastery of Ratisbon, viz., Arthur, who appears in the list of arrivals in 1739, when he was eight years old, and Charles, who entered in 1748, at the age of eleven. The younger only became a priest, and died in Holland in 1816."
