Document 2/143/174 (Cal. Papal Letters, i, 298)

Pope Innocent IV commands Master Innocent, papal writer, canon of Trani, living in England, to proceed in the business of the provision which the pope has more than once ordered Robert, papal chaplain, then abbot of Dunfermline, to make to Andrew, canon of Florence, son of Spiliati, citizen of that city, of a benefice in the diocese of St Andrews. Robert gave Andrew the church of Pottie (PER), but the bishop afterwards gave it to another, upon which the cause between the bishop and Andrew was heard by papal mandate before Master John Spata, papal subdeacon and chaplain, who ordered the bishop to pay 20 marks a year to Andrew, until he made provision to him of a benefice, value 30 silver marks, the church of Pottie remaining in the possession of the bishop’s nominee. And as the bishop was unwilling to make such provision to Andrew, the pope ordered Robert to make it, and, on its being made, the above annual payment by the bishop was to cease. But as Robert was transferred to the Cistercian order, the pope has ordered Innocent to take up the matter, and, at the death of the bishop, the pension is no longer paid to Andrew, provision is to be made to him in accordance with the original order.
