Document 2/146/22 (Inchaff. Chrs., no. 94)

Pope Clement IV writes to the archdeacon of Lothian, noting that the abbot and convent of Inchaffray have related to him that some clerics and laymen, both religious and secular, have conceded teinds, lands, vineyards, houses, meadows, woods, mills, pastures, fisheries, rents and certain other goods, some for life, others for a long time and others in perpetuity, at ferme or sub censu annuo, to the great injury of the monastery. He thus commands him to discover what goods have been alienated from the monastery in this manner and return them to the right and property of the monastery, compelling those opposed by ecclesiastical censure without appeal. If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.
