Simon of Biggar, precentor of Glasgow (d.1266×69)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 203: Simon of Biggar (or 'Bygres') occurs as precentor of Glasgow on 2 January 1259 and 19 April 1266. Watt, Graduates, 48: Simon of Biggar came from lands of Biggar in Lanarkshire, and might be the same as Simon medicus 'de Bygre' or his son. By 1232, he was styled Master and was a canon of Glasgow by 1237-8. He might also have held Carnwath prebend, which would make him the same as Simon 'de Carniwyth', q.v. In January 1259, he was promoted to precentor of Glasgow, which he perhaps held until his death after 19 April 1266 (probably×Dec. 1269). He had a brother Thomas.
