  General Notes:

"GRAY, GILBERT, a learned principal of Marischal college, Aberdeen, was appointed to that dignity in 1598, being the second after the foundation of that university. He studied under Robert Rollock, the first principal of the university of Edinburgh, whose worth and learning he has commemorated in a curious Latin oration, which he delivered in 1611, in praise of the illustrious writers of Scotland, and which will be found prefixed to Mackenzie's Lives. It is entitled 'Oratio de Illustribus Scotiae Scriptoribus,' habita a magistro Gilberto Grayo, Gymnasiarcha Academiae Novae Abredoniae, A.D. 1611. Many of the authors named in it are fictitious, especially as regards the Scottish kings .... Principal Gray died in 1614."
