  General Notes:

"William, succeeded Matthew de Crambeth as Bishop of Dunkeld in 1312, and had a safe-conduct from Edward I., on 2 February 1312-13, to turn aside at Berwick to get himself arrayed, thence proceeding to the King, on condition that he did not proceed further into Scotland nor hold converse with the enemy. He distinguished himself by repulsing an English force which had landed at Donibristle in Fife in 1317. Heading his own servants, and rallying the Scottish forces, the enemy were driven to their ships with a loss of 500 men. He officiated at the coronation of Edward Baliol on 24 September 1332, and died 27 June 1357."
