Details

Died 1258

William de Bondington († 1258) was a 13th century bishop of Glasgow. Before becoming bishop, William was rector of Eddleston, a prebendary of Glasgow, and archdeacon of Lothian. From the year 1231, William was Chancellor of Scotland. He was elected Bishop of Glasgow sometime between May 19, 1232 and June 1233. On September 11 1233, he was consecrated at Glasgow Cathedral by Andreas de Moravia, Bishop of Moray. William de Bondington was a frequent witness ot royal charters, and one of the most important royal officials in the reign of King Alexander II. He probably remained chancellor until the latter king's death in 1249, and remained on the royal council until 1255. In 1240, William and David de Bernham, Bishop of St Andrews, were summoned to Rome by Pope Gregory IX, in order to attend a general council. The latter, however, did not go ahead, and the bishops returned home. On July 18, 1244, William sanctioned the foundation of Crossraguel Abbey in Carrick, after Donnchadh, Earl of Carrick had given donations to Paisley Abbey for this purpose, but Paisley Abbey had merely founded a chapel and kept the balance. Bishop William's episcopate saw continued work on the cathedral and significant expansion in the resources of the diocese. William was a liberal benefactor to his clergy. William died November 10, 1258, and was buried in Melrose Abbey three days later.
