"SIR ADAM GORDON succeeded his father apparently toward the end of Bruce's reign, as about that date he
confirms a charter by his father to the monks of Melrose. He was one of the leaders of the army which fought
at Halidon, being in the division commanded by John Randolph, Earl of Moray. He is sometimes said to have been killed in the battle on 19 July 1333, yet he appears as a witness in a charter of uncertain date, but which must be later than 1333 and may be about 1343, though not later than 1346. He is probably the Laird of Gordon who is said by Ferrerius to have died in 1351."
