Adam, A Scottish Bishop, was abbot of Melrose, and was elected in 1213, and consecrated bishop OF CAITHNESS in May, 1214, by William Malvoisine, bishop of St. Andrews. While he was abbot he was sent as ambassador to king John of England. He went-in company with Walter, bishop of Glasgow, and Bricius, bishop of Moray-to Rome in 1218, to crave absolution from the pope; and they returned in 1219.
