Roger de Quincy, earl of Winchester, constable of Scotland, has given, granted, and established by his charter, to Lindores Abbey the church of Collessie (FIF) with all its pertinents, in free, pure and perpetual alms, in perpetuity, that is, that the death of Master Adam of Makerstoun, rector of the said church, should permit the abbot and convent to enter and possess and convert it to their own uses, if they are able to obtain it to any extent for their own uses. And if the same church can be converted to their own uses, the earl and his heirs will demand no right or claim to the said church; although, if the said church can not be converted to their own uses, the right of advowson will revert to the earl and his heirs without any contradiction.
