The origin of the name Glendenning or Glendinning, is obviously from the lands of that name.

According to the account given in Douglas's Baronage, and also in Anderson's Scottish Nation, Glendinning, formerly spelt Glendoning, anciently Glendonwyn, is a surname derived from " the territory known of old by that name," which comprehended " a considerable district " of Eskdale, Ewis, Liddesdale, and the west of Roxburghshire.

However it seems that it first came into prominence with William Douglas of Glendinning who was the second son of William Douglas, 1st Lord Douglas, 1057 AD.

The chart, an extract from a family tree of unknown provenance, shows a succession of William, Alexander, William.
