George Crichton served as the Bishop of Dunkeld until his death on 24 January in 1543 or 1544.
He served as Keeper of the Privy Seal of Scotland from 1526.
He is not remembered as an especially pious Bishop, and it has been said of him "He is said to have thanked God that he knew neither New nor Old Testaments".
He is believed to be the uncle of Robert Crichton, who served as the last known medieval Bishop of Dunkeld until 1554. It has been suggested that he is believed to be the brother of John Hamilton, Bishop of Dunkeld. This does not seem to be correct.
- It is not clear whether John Hamilton or Robert Crichton directly succeeded George Crichton; elections were often disputed and most dates provided for the Bishopric of Dunkeld overlap.
