Albin, bishop of Brechin (d.1269)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 53, 61: Albin was precentor of Brechin when he was elected bishop of Brechin before 19 July 1246. He was consecrated by 13 May 1247 and died in 1269. Watt, Graduates, 5-7: Albin was an illegitimate child. He had a nephew, Adam. He was Master by 1246, when he was elected bishop of Brechin. He obtained a dispensation for his illegitimacy from the legate, Otto, when he was in Scotland (Sept-Nov. 1239), at which time he probably became precentor of Brechin. He may have been born around 1205 to Henry, son of Earl David, later lord of Brechin.
