My 6x great-granduncle may have missed out on claiming the baronetage of Gordon of Park.
The Baronetage of Gordon of Park was created in 1686 for my 9x great-grandfather
Sir John “3rd Laird of Park and Cluny”, “1st Baronet of Park” GORDON, (1631 – 1713), the Baronetage was then passed down the line to the first-born son in each generation.
Before it went extinct or dormant in 1835 with my second cousin, 7x removed ‘Sir John Bury Gordon’ as no apparent heir could be found.

This Baronetage should have passed back up the line and down again to my 6x great-granduncle.
Sergeant John Gordon (Battle of Waterloo Soldier), he died in 1839 leaving at least four sons.
