Alexander Dunbar

(say 1510 - 19 September 1560)
     Alexander Dunbar was also known as Alexander Dunbar (Prior of Pluscarden) in records. He was born illegitimate say 1510. He is assumed to be one of the natural sons of Chancellor Patrick Dunbar but he is not listed with Gavin, James, John, George & David, bastards, natural sons of Patrick Dunbar who were legitimized 6 Mar 1539/40 [Register of Privy Seal, v.2 1529-1542 #3442], however he is described as brother germane to John of Bennetsfield in 1542. Gavin Dunbar is also described as the brother of the Prior in 1551.
It is also vaguely possible that he is Alexander, the son of the deceased James Dunbar of Sudy, bastard, who is legitimized with Patrick of Darkles & John of Bennagefield 20 March 1543/4 at Edinburgh [Register of the Great Seal of Scotland 1513-1546 #3000] when he would have been prior. He was the son of Patrick Dunbar.
     Alexander matriculated at St Andrews University, in 1520?. An Alexander Dunbar matriculated at St Andrew's University in 1493 and another in 1520. Alexander was the Prior of Pluscarden monastery 1532-60 at Pluscarden, Moray, Scotland, between 1529 and 1560. He was the last prior of the Benedictine community. It was not necessary at that time for a prior to be a monk or cleric. The earliest mention of him (which supports the theory that he was a near relation of Bishop Gavin Dunbar, is his appearance as a witness to the foundation charter of St Mary's Hospital, Aberdeen, dated 23 Feb 1532.
     During his first 6 years, Henry VIII of England rejected Papal supremacy and suppressed the monasteries, seizing their revenues. He is next mentioned in an instrument of sasine in favour of himself, on the resignation of William Sutherland of Duffus, of 2 roods of land near Elgin, dated 1533. Many of the monastery's lands were feued or disposed of to pay for the "great tax" to support the College of Justice which King James V established. His annual contribution of £11/4/0 had been unpaid for 11 years in February 1548/9.
     Watt states: Prior of Pluscarden: As a canon of Ross (VA, Reg. Lat. 1525, fos. 333-5) prov. on resignation of Learmonth 20 May 1529 (MHRS, 61) cf PRO 31/9/32/154 of 13 Nov 1529; cf. ibid, 162) and 11 Feb 1530 (VA, Reg. supp., 2001, fo.. 150); occ. 24 Feb 1532 (RMS, iii, 249, no. 1145); occ. 12 Sep 1560 (RMS, v, 217-218, no. 708); dead by September 1560 VA, Reg.

There is an entry in the "Register of the Privy Seal of Scotland", recording the legitimation of Robert Dunbar, and John Dunbar, brothers of Patrick Dunbar, Baron of Sanquhar, natural sons of Alexander, prior of Pluscarden. (The reference to Sanquhar indicates that the Prior must have made over these lands near Forres to his eldest son before 1547). The following year a precept of sasine was drawn up. On 24 June it was signed by Alexander & 12 monks. This document made over extensive lands within the barony of Fochabers, which belonged formerly to Urquhart Priory, to Alexander Innes of Cromy (Crombie) who married Beatrix Dunbar, reputed to have been one of the Prior's daughters.

     On the first day of January 1554 the Inneses, to the number of 80 persons, all armed, camed to the Cathedral oaf Elgin during vespers, and of ancient feud and forethought felony, cruelly invaded Alexander Dunbar, Prior of Pluscarden, David Dunbar, Dean of Moray, and other Dunbars, laymen, with purpose to slay them, in presence of the Holy Sacrament. The Dunbars on the other hand, had come to the church with a like deadly intent, but not against the Churchmen. They had only intended to kill Wiliam Innes of that Ilk, and his servants. The battle was not decisive, for both parties had recourse to legal proceedings for the next twenty years.
     On 8 Dec 1554 he had a contract with Alexander Innes of "Crommy".

     On 12 September 1560, the Prior and 4 of his monks made over "the land and town of Westerton of Pluscardin" to John Dunbar, the younger brother of Patrick Dunbar of Sanquhar, near Forres, but in consideration for a specified annual rent. In the event of John Dunbar having no heirs, the property was to pass to another brother Alexander, who failing, Patrick, or in the event of the death of all of these, to their cousin, David Dunbar of Bennethfield. Patrick, John & Alexander were all natural sons of the Prior. Robert (who may have been dead by 1560) and John were legitimated on 12 Feb 1547/8.
     Bruce Bishop (2000) wrote: The estate of Westerton was originally part of the Priory lands ... Alexander Dunbar, the last Prior, seeing the times were to prove fatal to the RC church, on 12 Sep 1560, with the consent of the convent, granted a charter of the lands of Westerton to John Dunbar, one of his illegitimate sons. he does not name him as his own son, but designates him brother to Patrick Dunbar of Sanquhar, who was generally known to have been one of Alexander's sons..
