Adam Ovid, master (fl.1203-33)

Biography
Watt, Graduates, 436-7: Adam was brother of Laurence of Thornton, archdeacon of St Andrews, and may be the same person as Adam of Perth, Adam of St Andrews or Adam of Bathgate. His surname is probably a reflection of his literary tastes. He was master by 1203×04 and held a prebend in 1220. He held the vicarage of Hobkirk (ROX) by 23 October 1220. He appears most often as a witness in the familia of St Andrews and may have been there under Bishop Roger (1189-1202) as 'of Perth' or 'of St Andrews'. He first occurs as 'Ovid' in May 1203×Aug. 1204 and 1203×09. He further occurs as witness in charters dated from 1209×40, prob. circa 1220. He is not found with certainty after 1233.
