William of Ednam, master, archdeacon of Dunkeld (d.1251×57)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 155: William occurs as archdeacon of Dunkeld on 19 April 1225, 4 July 1225 and again on 26 April 1245, having possibly obtained the position 1221×25. Watt, Graduates, 171-73: William's surname is taken from Ednam, near Kelso, Roxburghshire. He might have been related to a Jordan, son of William, from Ednam. Called Master by 1202×07, he appears as a clerk in 1210, and was parson of the church of Sanquhar, Ayrshire, in 1239. William was active in both dioceses of Dunkeld and Glasgow. He died after April 1245, but probably April 1251×April 1257. He may have been the Master William de gremio Glasguensis ecclesie mentioned in Theiner, no. 13.
