Patrick Gordon, 1st of Methlic

Patrick, who was killed at Brechin on Ascension Day 1452, fighting in the king's army under the Earl of Huntly against the Earl of Crawford in rebellion, and the Haddo House charters indicate that the lands had previously belonged in superiority to the families of de Fullertoun, de Camera or Chalmers, Barclay of Menteith, and Meldrum.

From these the father of Patrick Gordon, who may well have been the James of the Pitlurg pedigree, doubtless acquired some interest, afterwards paramount, while the lands of Kellie were held by Gordon of Methlic of the Earls of Crawford until the sixteenth century.
