Henry, bishop of Whithorn (d.1293)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 169: Henry was abbot of Holyrood when he was elected to the bishopric of Whithorn in 1253, with the support of the Comyn faction but opposed by John Balliol, who claims to represent the rights of the lordship of Galloway. Henry still appeared as abbot in October 1254, not as bishop-elect. Henry's election was confirmed by the archbishop of York on 24 February 1255, though he occurred only as bishop-elect on 22 December 1255. He was probably consecrated in early 1256. He died on 1 November 1293.
