About Alexander Dunbar

Wikipedia Biographical Summary

"Alexander Dunbar junior - The son of David Dunbar, and succentor of Moray upon father's death, he was claiming right of succession by right of papal provision. He received crown presentation and permission to seek confirmation from Rome on September 30, 1559, but this did not work out because of the Scottish Reformation. He was still only succentor on December 10, 1565, when the crown recognised his superior right over Campbell, and although he was instituted as Dean on December 24, it was not until June 27, 1566, that he is first styled "Dean". He resigned on or shortly before June 21, 1590, in order to pave the way for his son Thomas Dunbar, but retained the fruits of the benefice until his death in 1593."
