Dau of William Ochterlony b abt 1530.
William Gordon married Isobel Ochterlony, daughter of (William ?) Ochterlony of Kelly (Balbithan MS.).
In the charter chest of Lord Morton (Hist. MSS. Com., 2nd Report, Appendix, p. 184) there is a letter from "Dame Elizabeth Gordon Lady of Gycht," under date 1597. Alice Lady Morton declined to let me examine it.
Isobel Ochterlony died in May, 1604, and like her spouse was buried according to the rites of the Roman Catholic Church. On April 2, 1607, Sir Thomas Hamilton, the King's Advocate, complained to the Privy Council that at the funeral David Wilson, tenant of part of the lands of Gight By command of George Gordon, now of Geycht, the Lady's son, careyed ane crucifix upoun ane speir immediatelie before the corps of the said umquhill Issobell the haill way to the place of her buriall. Charge had been given to George Gordon, David Wilsoun and George Crawfurd to answer, and now pursuer appearing, but none of the defenders, the Lords, after hearing the depositions of certain witnesses, find the libel proved against Gordoun in both points, and also the charge against Crawfurd, and therefore ordain both to enter in ward in the Castle of Edinburgh within eighteen days after being commanded under pain of rebellion (Privy Council Register). On May 13, 1604, John Melville, painter in Aberdeen, was summoned by the Presbytery for painting the crucifix.
William Gordon and his spouse, Isobel Ochterlony, had seven sons and seven daughters.
