Richard, bishop of Moray, for Kinloss Abbey; has taken them under protection and confirms possessions from various donors.

15 March 1187 X 1203
Probable date
perhaps 15/Mar/1187 × circa 1197
Dating Notes
Consecration × death of Bishop Richard of Moray; the first three witnesses pose a problem. Donald Watt (_Fasti_, 283, 310) argued that names of archdeacon and dean had been transposed. However, it is possible that 'T archidiaconus' is Thomas, who occurs 1179 × 1188; Archdeacon Robert otherwise occurs late in episcopate, as does Brice, an early dean. The Robert in witness list could be an early dean before Brice. No explanation, however, can account for the mysterious 'W' which follows Brice's name.
