Nicholas of Moffat, archdeacon of Teviotdale (d.1270)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 189-90, 226: Nicholas succeeded as archdeacon of Teviotdale in 1245 and occurs in 1250 and on 13 October 1268. He was elected bishop of Glasgow 2 January × 2 February 1259, though this election was quashed in favour of John de Cheam, after whose death in 1268 he was again elected to the see while he was still archdeacon of Teviotdale. He died without being consecrated in 1270. Watt, Graduates, 399-400: Nicholas's surname comes from Moffat in Dumfriesshire. He was Master by 1214 and held the church of Tyninghame, East Lothian, by 9 January 1261/2, which he retained until his death. Following the first election to the see of Glasgow, he left for the papal curia, after 2 February 1258/9, and returned to Scotland later in 1259. He was buried at Tyninghame.
