Pope Clement V writes to Nicholas, bishop of Dunblane, noting how the church of Dunblane, belonging to the Roman church with no intermediary, was without a pastor since the death of Nicholas, bishop of Dunblane, and how the dean and chapter of the same church called an election to be made by the addressee, then a canon, and the said dean, with Maurice of Inchaffray, William of Lindores, Michael of Cambuskenneth, William of Eaglesham, and Henry of Stirling, canons of the same church; the election of Nicholas having been examined by L., cardinal-bishop of Albano, John, cardinal-priest of SS Marcel and Peter, and Arnold, cardinal-deacon of S Maria in Portico, the pope confirmed the election and asked N., bishop of Ostia to consecrate him. He thus commands Nicholas to take charge of the see. Concurrent letters to the dean and chapter of Dunblane, and to Malise, earl of Strathearn.
