Sir Adam de Gordon was a Warden of the Marches in 1300 and, a supporter of Robert I, was sent to Rome to petition the Pope for Bruce's excommunication to be lifted. For his services, he was granted the lands of Strathbogie in Aberdeenshire, but died at the battle of Halidon Hill in 1333.
The Lord Warden of the Marches was an office in the governments of Scotland and England. The holders were responsible for the security of the border between the two nations, and often took part in military action. The Marches on both side of the border were traditionally split into West, Middle and East, each with their own warden answerable to the Lord Warden. The offices became unnecessary after the union of the crowns of England and Scotland under King James in 1603.
