Document 1/54/46 (RRS, vi, no. 48)

David, king of Scots, to Thomas de Chartres, knight, his chancellor of Scotland: Since Lindores abbey has been debilitated by the intolerable incursions of war as well as assedations of lands by certain abbots and damages to his alms and violent theft of their goods, the monastery's renders are no longer sufficient to support the monks. And because he understands that his lord father [Robert I], king of Scotland, and the late Thomas Randolph, earl of Moray, his beloved nepos, then lieutenant, by diocesan consent, namely that of the late James, bishop of St Andrews, in whose diocese the monastery is sited, and by plain counsel in full parliament held at Scone, had revoked all the pensions, donations, and assedations of the said abbots. The king commands his chapel to issue letters to his officers enforcing this revocation.
