Robert Shaw News


Robert Shaw (died 1527) was a Scottish cluniac monk and prelate. A son of the Laird of Sauchie, he became a monk at Paisley Abbey. He was provided as Abbot of Paisley after the resignation of Abbot George Shaw on July 20, 1498. As abbot, he took an active if unimportant role in national affairs, appearing many times as a witness to royal charters. On January 11, 1525, he was given crown nomination to Pope Clement VII to succeed James Hepburn as Bishop of Moray. The nomination was agreeable with the papacy and on May 17, he was provided to the see. He held the diocese of Moray for only two years, serving once on a diplomatic mission to England. He died sometime before November, 1527.
