Fordun, John of, was a Scottish chronicler of the 14th century, and was a secular priest and canon of Aberdeen. He is said to have travelled on foot in England, Scotland, and Ireland to gather material for his work. The five books which he published of the Scotichronicow go down to the death of David I in 1153, but when he died, in 1385, he left material which was used by a later historian. His work is of great value when speaking of contemporary events.
