Document 2/133/12 (Glas. Reg., no. 53)

Pope Urban III writes to the bishop, the dean and the chapter of Glasgow recognising that the church of Carnwath (LAN) had been canonically collated to the church from the grant of the Noble Man, W[illiam] de Somerville, and the bishop had made it into a prebend of his church. Although this was established in writing both by William and the bishop, and fortified by the authority of the apostolic see, since that church was constructed within the parish of the church of Liberton (MLO) and since the right of the patronage for it is said to have fallen to someone else, lest in future that matter be prejudicial to the bishop, dean and chapter, or to the church of Glasgow, the pope, following Pope Lucius, his predecessor, establishes their possession of the church of Carnwath.
