  General Notes:

'George Gordon succeeded his father in Crichie; but by 1603 he is described as "sometime of Crichie"; he was "then in Straloch," an estate in New Machar, which originally belonged to the Cheynes, and passed into the hands of the Gordons of Pitlurg.
The earliest mention of George is in the retour dated October 6, 1553, as heir to his father. This date, as I have shown, is wrong, the 1553 probably being a mistake for 1573, as suggested by the following:
George Gordon got sasine on paying £4 of relief on his fourth of Estir Crechies, fourth of Middle Crechies, and fourth of Creichnalaid, all lying in the hands of the King for two years and a term, the fermes extending to £4 annually, at Edinburgh,
October 15, 1573 (Exchequer Rolls, vol. xx.). A large part of the Crechies at that time belonged to John Leslie of Balquhain, who got sasine on October 30, 1573.'

'1580, April 23.George Gordon of Crichie was one of the Gordons implicated in the quarrel with the Forbes family (Privy Council Register).'

'1592.George Gordon of Crichie's name is mentioned in connection with the murder of the Earl of Moray at Donnibristle (ibid.).
1593, April 12.George Gordon of Crichie and seven other Gordons failed to appear before the Privy Council to underlie such order "as sould have beine prescrivit to thame tuiching the observations of peax and quietnes". They were therefore
ordered to be denounced as rebels (ibid.).'

'1601, January 23.— George Gordon, spouse and son, got sasine in Straloch, etc., but resigned them in favour of Sir Thomas Gordon of Cluny, the precept of resignation being dated Aberdeen, June 11, 1603 : and Sir Thomas granted a charter of
same lands to John Gordon of Pitlurg, dated at Straloch, June 24, 1606. The lands were sold by the curators of John Gordon Cumming of Pitlurg in 1760 to John Ramsay of Barra (Temple's Fermartyn, 320).'

'1603, August 13.— George Gordon of Straloch and Jean Gordon, his spouse, got sasine in Chapeltoun of Schieves, etc., from George Gordon, fiar of Gight.
1605, April 20.— George Gordon of Chapeltoun and Jean Gordon, his spouse, and William Gordon, his son, got sasine in Follarule and Saphak.'
