Document 2/64/16 (Arb. Lib., no. 248)

Abbot John and convent of Arbroath recite apostolic letters from Pope Alexander [IV], by which pope issued a licence to Arbroath Abbey, at request of John, cardinal of St Laurence's in Lucina, to enter into possession of church of Frendraught (ABD) in diocese of Aberdeen, whose value scarcely exceeds 30 marks, and on next voidance, to allow a perpetual chaplain to be appointed with a portion. Abbot John notes that after death of Duncan, former rector, church determined that a chaplain would serve church, to be sustained by a salary. The abbey assigned all altarage with lands of church and manse, reserving that 8 marks annually of teinds of wool or lambs or other shall be paid to Arbroath, saving garbal teinds of lands of churches in whole parish. The chaplain shall serve church and carry its burdens, and sustain fabric of chancel and manse by his portion, and provide hospitality for Arbroath when they come to church.
