Alexander Comyn, earl of Buchan, notifies that he has instituted a lawsuit against the abbot and convent of Inchcolm, in the presence of the venerable father, Richard, bishop of Dunkeld, in his name and in the name of Thomas of Meldrum over the advowson of the church of ‘Fithkil’ (Leslie, FIF), vacant by the death of Master John of Everlay, late rector. Finally, after many altercations, taking pity on the poverty of the monastery, and desiring a share in its prayers, he has given, granted and quitclaimed to the canons of Inchcolm Abbey all right and claim that he had in the advowson of the church of ‘Fithkil’, whether in his own name, or in the name of the said Thomas, who ceded his right to the earl.
