Robert, bishop of Ross (d.1249)

Biography
Watt and Murray, Fasti, 346-47: Robert was appointed bishop of Ross upon the resignation of Andrew Murray in that office, in 1214. He was a chaplain of King William, so his appointment must have come before 4 December, when William died. He occurs as bishop-elect on 17 February 1215 and was consecrated by 1 March of that year. He was succeeded by another Bishop Robert after his death, which probably occurred in 1249.
