  Marriage Notes:

"I have a note that George Gordon, younger of Beldorney, probably married a daughter of Lyon of Muresk, but I cannot find authority for this." (page 4)

"During the period from 1633, when the lands of Beldorney were apprised to David Rickard, up to about 1700, when Alexander Gordon of Tillysoul acquired them, the superiorities of the lands and the designation 'of Beldorney' were, no doubt, retained by the successive titular lairds of the main line of the family, viz., George Gordon,
4th laird, who seems, as stated, to have married a daughter of Lyon of Muresk, and was served heir to his father, George, in Beldornye and other lands in 1638 ; John, his successor, 5th laird ; and the latter's son, the 6th laird, who is said to have been the father of three sons who went abroad, and were not heard of for 20 years (Fam. Ped. of Gordons of Beldorny). (No retour of service of either the 5th or
6th laird is forthcoming.)" (page 6)
