"About the time that St Leonards College was founded the buildings appropriated to the original institution of Pedagogy having fallen into disrepair and the funds set apart for the support of its teachers being found inadequate the design was formed of repairing the buildings and erecting into a college with a suitable endowment. The design for some reason was not immediately adopted but in 1537 archbishop James Beaton obtained the sanction of the Pope and began the new buildings of the College to be designated St Mary's College. After his death Cardinal Beaton his nephew proceeded with the undertaking but it being still incomplete at the time of his murder it was completed by his Successor archbishop Hamilton. He intended that it should consist of a principal 8 professors and 24 bursars in theology and philosophy besides attendants and for their maintenance he appropriated the tithes of the parishes of Tannadice Tynningham Laurencekirk Pert, Tarvet and Craig" See Leighton's Hist.
