Document 2/139/12 (Dunf. Reg., no. 216B)

Pope Honorius III writes to the abbots of Kelso and Melrose and the archdeacon of Lothian, noting that the abbot and convent has complained that in the case between them and W[illiam], rector of the church of Kilconquhar (FIF) concerning certain teinds, which was heard before officials of St Andrews without apostolic delegation, the said rector appealed to the apostolic see, and although those officials deferred to his appeal, nevertheless he did not strive to prosecute it within the time allowed by law. He thus commands them to call together the parties, hear the case, and terminate it without appeal, causing what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure. They may remit certain parts to the examination of the previous judges, obtaining from the condemned lawful expenses. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let two of them do it.
