Charles Gordon

Priest, born Bellie, Scotland, 1772; died Aberdeen, Scotland, 1855. The nephew of Bishop Geddes and brother of Father John Gordon, he entered the Seminary of Scalan, 1785, and went to Scots College at Douay for eight years. Ordained priest by Bishop Hay, 1795, he was placed in charge of the ¥ission of Aberdeen, which position he occupied until his death. In 1807 Father Gordon accompanied Bishop Hay to Edinburgh. He introduced music into the church in Aberdeen, 1814, and perhaps the most important work of his ministry was the erection of a parochial school, 1833, and the opening of the College of Saint Mary for the education of young men destined for the Church.
