Adam de Gordun married an Englishwoman named Marjory. Through her he possessed an estate in England, which meant he had to do homage to the English King, Henry III.
In the conflict over who ruled Scotland and England, Adam decided in favor of John Balliol. John Balliol raised an army in the West. Adam joined this because his Berwickshire lands were plundered by the English during the English king's victorious invasion of Scotland.
On the 28th of April 1296, the armies met on the field of Dunbar. Adam was one of the large number of men who fell in that fight.
Adam married Marjory of England. (Marjory of England was born about 1255.)
