Adam of Calder, bishop of Aberdeen (d.1228)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 1: Adam was elected bishop of Aberdeen October × December 1207 and was consecrated after 29 January 1208. Watt, Graduates, 289: At the time of his election to the see of Aberdeen, he was described as a king's clerk, so he may be the same as 'Adam, my clerk', who witnessed a royal charter of William I c.1200×07, probably 1205; he is notably not given title of 'Master' in this document as the other clerks. He might have been chancellor during 1207×11.
