Alexander, abbot of Coupar Angus (fl.1209-40)

Biography
Watt and Shead, Heads, 44: Alexander succeeded as abbot of Coupar Angus in 1209 and resigned in 1240. Alexander succeeded Richard as the seventh abbot of Coupar Angus in 1209. He was one of the abbots who appealed to the papal legate, Guala, against the prohibition of the celebration of divine offices by monks in the Cistercian Order in Scotland, finally obtaining absolution. He resigned the office of abbot in 1240. (Chron. Mel.)
