Document 2/147/17 (Glas. Reg., no. 222)

Pope Gregory X writes to the bishops of Dunblane and Argyll noting the petition by the dean and chapter of Glasgow that John, of good memory, bishop of Glasgow, had acquired the land of Carmyle, Glasgow diocese, with its rights and pertinents, though his industry from money of the chapter itself; he directed the dean and chapter under the same manner that the fruits and profits of the same land were to be converted for the sustenance of four chaplains who had served the church. The dean and chapter had served the land thus, possessing it peaceably for long spaces of time, according to the tenor of the collation of the said bishop. Afterwards, Robert, bishop of Glasgow, successor of J[ohn], with the precentor, chancellor, treasurer and sub-dean of Glasgow, exchanged the church of Annandale, in the same diocese, belonging to the same by the collation of Bishop R[obert], for the same land to the dean and other canons of the church, to the prejudice and trouble of the dean, chapter and church, and exerting to apply the same land to the uses of his manse, he is attacking and bothering the dean and chapter against justice. Whereby the dean and chapter had beseeched the pope that he should denounce the said exchange as void, and that he should command Bishop Robert to desist all assault and trouble. He thus commands them to call together those who shall be called and hear the [the case], proposing what shall be canonical to be established and making what is decreed be firmly observed. If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth.
