Document 2/139/106 (Cal. Papal Letters, i, 106)

Pope Honorius III commands the prior and convent of St Andrews to let Master William de St Germain, papal chaplain, have the church of Rossie (PER), for institution to which he has been presented to by the bishop of St Andrews by the prior and convent, between whom and Master William of Greenlaw, who detained that church, a question has arisen, the prior and convent asserting that William had another church contrary to the statutes of the general council. At length a composition was made between Eustace and Henry, canons and proctors of the convent, and the said William, who made oath that if they could prove that he accepted, after the council, any benefice with cure of souls, or if he could obtain the church of Lilliesleaf (ROX), which he was striving to get he would surrender Rossie. But as they are not prosecuting the suit, he continues to hold that church, and the said chaplain has received nothing under this provision, the pope makes order as above, adding that, if the chaplain cannot have the said church, another of equal value is to be given him. If the prior and convent do neither of these things, the bishop, dean, and treasurer of Glasgow have orders to compel them. Concurrent letter to the said bishop, dean and treasurer.
