  General Notes:

Sir William was one of the officers in command of the first Scots lot of 1000 men that went to the Crusades. He died before Tunis while on the way to Palestine, leaving his lands to his brother Adam who did not long survive him, and was succeeded by his son Adam, the husband of Alicia. (biographies/gordoun.htm)

"William, it is said, went to the Crusades, and never returned to Scotland. He was succeeded, it is alleged, by his brother Adam, who was the father of Sir Adam. Without entirely rejecting this descent, as the evidence on the point is meagre, it may be stated that the names of Alexander or William Gordon do not appear in any record."

from Scots Peerage 2 3
