Hugh of Potton, archdeacon of Glasgow (d.1238)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 222: Hugh had anticipated his succession as archdeacon of Glasgow on 16 May 1227 and first appears in that office on 9 November 1227. He died 1 January×24 March 1238, at which time the archdeaconry split into two: that of Glasgow and of Teviotdale. Watt, Graduates, 455-6: Hugh was styled Master on 23 October 1220 and was a clerk. He held the vicarage of Hownam, Roxburghshire by 23 October 1220, which he still retaining in 1227-8, though it was given up by 15 January 1229. He also held the church of Dryfesdale, Dumfriesshire at some time after 23 March 1206×13 January 1226. He had probably resigned it soon after 16 May 1227 in return for the archdeaconry of Glasgow. There is no known relationship with Richard de Potton, bishop of Aberdeen (c.1257-71), who was an Englishman.
