Title type
earl of Strathearn
From Source
2/10/96 (SEA, i, no. 221)
Firm date
1178 X 30 December 1184
Probable date
perhaps Mar/1179
Dating Notes
Consecration of Bishop Hugh × death of Bishop Andrew of Caithness; much hangs on the dates of Simon of Dunblane and Turpin of Brechin. If they were the two Scottish bishops consecrated at the Third Lateran Council, the date would be March 1179. This identification depends on a scribal error describing Simon as 'episcopo' rather than 'electo' (Watt, <em>Series Episcoporum</em>, 37, n.37).
