'Scripta per manum GODEFRIDI correctoris reuerendi doctoris et magistri sacre theologie magistri Iohannis Rath' (ad fin., fol. 247v, s. xiv). John Rate probably compiled it before he became bishop of Aberdeen in 1350 (D. E. R. Watt, A Biographical Dictionary of Scottish Graduates to A.D. 1410 (Oxford 1977), 301, 465–6).

Alexander de Kininmund, bishop of Aberdeen, more probably the second of that name (1329–1343 x 1344) than the first (1355–80).


Elias Ashmole (1617–1692).
