Laurence is the first Bishop of Dunblane to be known by name. A document dating to 27 February 1155, had an M. de Dunblan, but no more is known of this man and it is unlikely that M. is a mistake for La..Dowden, Bishops, p. 193.

Laurentius episcopo de Dunblain appears as a witness to a charter of King Máel Coluim IV of Scotland, a charter granted from Perth to the church of St John the Baptist of Perth in 1161.Barrow (ed.), Acts of Malcolm IV, p. 223. His next appearance occurs witnessing a charter of Richard, Bishop of St Andrews, sometime between 1165 and 1169.Bruce (ed.), Liber Cartarum Prioratus, p. 133; Watt & Murray, Fasti Ecclesiae, p. 99.

A charter which Bishop Laurence himself issued to Cambuskenneth Abbey has survived; it dates to some time between 1165 and 1171, and granted the church of Tullibody to that monastic house.Fraser (ed.), Registrum monasterii S. Marie, pp. 313-4; Watt & Murray, Fasti Ecclesiae, p. 99. The grant had followed (i.e. was a confirmation of) an earlier grant from the local landowner, Simón son of Mac Bethad, and was only to take effect after the death of the rector, the royal clerk Hugh de Roxburgh.Cockburn, Bishops, p. 27; Fraser (ed.), Registrum monasterii S. Marie, pp. 313-4.
