Note

Gordon is her true maiden name. Rachel Gordon, X, of Abergeldie succeeded her brother John in 1698. She married Captain Charles Gordon of the Minmore family which was a cadet of the Knockespocks and descended from "Jock" Gordon of Scurdargue. Thus, though the direct male line of Gordon of Abergeldie was broken, the name was retained, for Abergeldie is one of the very few estates in Aberdeenshire which have been retained by the same family for so long a period as four centuries.
