Robert of Leicester/Craigie, dean of Aberdeen (d.1277×88)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 8: Robert occurs as dean of Aberdeen on 20 August 1240, but probably had succeeded since 31 December 1238. He occurs again on 6 February 1277. Watt, Graduates, 337-38: Robert was a kinsman of Richard of Leicester, a burgess of Perth, and thus may be identifiable with Robert of Perth or Robert of Craigie. He may possibly be the same as Robert, chaplain of Tibbermore, who witnessed acts of Bishop John Scot of Dunkeld, 1198×1203, and his successor, Bishop Richard de Prebenda, 1203×1210. He was perhaps a kinsman of John of Leicester, bishop of Dunkeld, q.v. He was master from his first appearance 1212×1214. He is once called a clerk of the bishop. He was a canon of Dunkeld, and styled 'Cragyn' in documents of that context dating from 1229 or before. He was still a canon there when called 'Leicester', 1229×36 and 31 Dec. 1238. Shortly after, he succeeded to the deanery of Aberdeen. He presumably died in 1277, but certainly before April 1288 and probably well before that.
