Document 2/137/29 (St A. Lib., 350)

Pope Innocent III writes to the abbots of Arbroath, Coupar Angus and Lindores stating that he has received a complaint from the prior and canons of St Andrews, concerning the church of Leuchars (FIF). Ness, late son of William, with the assent of the diocesan bishop, the prior and canons, and the church of St Andrews, bestowed the church to them to be maintained and which donation W[illiam], king of Scots, had approved as customary for the region, and which the apostolic see had also established. Now Saher de Quincy, knight, nepos of Ness, presuming to go against this, had presented Simon de Quincy, clerk, to that church and is impeding and disturbing the said grant against justice. He therefore commands that the said knight permit them to possess the church peaceably, as shall be lawful. If all of them cannot be present, two of them shall carry this out.
