abbot of Arbroath in 1303, was the first chancellor of Robert the Bruce,
after that monarchs elevation to the throne in 1306. He is supposed to have
composed that spirited remonstrance in favour of the countrys independence
which, in 1318, was sent by the Scottish nobility and barons to the Roman
pontiff, and which is so remarkable in the history of Scotland. He held the
great seal till his death in 1327. Crawford supposes the abbots surname to
have been Linton.
