Moreover, he gives, grants, and establishes by his charter, to the said chaplain and his successors, in perpetuity, in free and perpetual alms, that piece of land which Brice of Ardrossan held in the villa of Dunblane (PER) called ‘Tolauch’, for the purchase of a chalice and ornaments. He also gives and grants the power to choose another chaplain upon the death of the first to the abbot of Inchaffray, and subjects himself to the authority of the bishop of Dunblane.
