Document 2/128/2 (Camb. Reg., no. 23)

Pope Eugene III, by the petition of Brother Robert, prior of St Andrews, takes William, abbot of Cambuskenneth, and the brethren there into his protection and ordains that the order instituted there by the abbot, with the counsel and assistance of Robert, bishop of St Andrews, should be preserved in perpetuity; all the possessions and goods which they have or may acquire by papal permission, by the liberality of kings or the gifts of the faithful, may remain with the abbot and his successors, in particular the land of ‘Dumbodelin’ (Tullibody, CLA), with the waters, and the land of Cambuskenneth (STL), with the fishing and net in the water, and the land of Cowie (STL), with the wood and the teinds of the king’s lordships of Stirling, and 40s. of the king’s rents and the cain of one ship. The pope directs that no man is permitted to disturb the church or carry away its possessions; saving to the bishop canonical justice and reverence and the authority of the apostolic see. Should any secular person attempt to go against this, after three warnings if he should not make amends, he may lose his honour and be liable to divine justice, and subject himself to retribution.
