Gordon Genealogy & History

Gordon is a Scottish and likely Anglo-French locational surname. The former, which is more common, comes from the town of Gordon in Berwickshire, which comes from the Gaelic "gor" for large plus "dun", meaning fort. The latter is from Gourdon, in the department of Saone-et-Loire, and probably originates with the French-Roman given name Gordus and locational suffix -on. Gordon family history starts with Richer de Gordun, baptized at St. Michael's Church in Kelso, Scotland in 1154. Gordon genealogy lays claim to a few famous people, like British General Charles Gordon, American Admiral John Gordon, and astronaut Richard Gordon.
