Pope Gregory X takes the abbot and monastery of Newbattle under his protection; all the possessions and goods which possess justly or shall possess in future by the grant of popes, by the liberality of kings or the gifts of the faithful, may remain with the abbot and his successors, including the place where the said monastery is situated, the land that is called ‘Ruchale’ (in Newbattle parish, MLO), the grange of Easthouses (MLO), the granges of Moorfoot (MLO) and Newbattle (MLO), a saltpan in the place called ‘Blancheland’ (probably in STL) and pannage through all the forest, with all rights, as granted by David, king of Scotland; the grange called Drumpellier (LAN), and the lands and possessions situated in the place called ‘Gocelinton’ (MLO) which they possess from the gift of Malcolm, king of Scotland; the lands, possessions, saltpans and universal rights which they possess in the place of Carse in Callander (STL), collated by Alexander, king of Scotland; the saltpans, lands, possessions and woods which they have in the places called are called Carse (of Callendar, STL) , Gladhouse (MLO) and the valley of Lethan (Leven DNB?); the lands and possessions situated in Dumbarton and the use of one net in the water and place called Leven (DNB) which they possess from the gift of the late Alexander (II), king of Scots; the lands and possessions which they have in the place called Musselburgh (MLO) situated to the east part of the Esk water above the sea-bank and one saltpan situated in the same place of Musselburgh in the place called Carse; in the fisheries of Musselburgh, free use of the fishery with one net and one boat (‘cobello’); the granges of Bearford (ELO) and Prora (ELO); the grange of Romanno (PEB); one peatary called ‘Wluestrothr’ (in Borthwick , MLO); the grange of Preston (ELO); one ploughgate of land in the place called Gilmerton (MLO); one meadow positioned next to Prora; the possessions and lands which they have in the place called ‘Balnebuch’ (‘Balnebuth’); the grange of Crawford (LAN); one piece (peciam) of land which they have in the place called ‘Bynin’ (poss. Binny, WLO); the lands and possessions which they have in ‘Brotheralwyn’ (Elvan in Crawford, LAN), and from the places called Glencaple (DMF) and Glengonner (LAN); one saltpan situated in the place called Carse and the land which they have in the territory of Crawford, and the land situated in Glasgow; the pit-lands (‘terrefodinam’) or peatary in the place called ‘Cumberstrother’; the place next to Bearford called ‘the Marsh’ (Marcus); one ploughgate of land and whatever rights they have in the feu of South Hailes (Nether Hailes, ELO) and common pasture for 300 sheep, and half a ploughgate of land there and another pasture for 100 sheep; one piece (peciam) of land situated in Berwick in the place called Ness; one piece (peciam) of land and one fishery which they hold in the place called Renfrew (RNF); twelve acres of land in the place called Cleghorn (LAN) and the land called ‘Cressewelle’ (Monkrigg, ELO); a certain piece of land situated in the place called Duncanlaw (ELO) and a certain pit-land with entry and exit and pasture positioned between the lands of Morham (ELO) and Bearford (ELO); the lands which they have in the feu of North Hailes (Over Hailes, ELO) in the valley called ‘Millynhalwe’; half a ploughgate of land in the place of Fortune (ELO); a certain piece of land in the feu of West Fortune (ELO); lands and possessions situated in the place called East Fenton (ELO); the land in the place called ‘Wythflath’ (poss. in Tranent, ELO) with pasture for 200 sheep and 20 beasts and 2 horses; a certain piece (peciam) of land in the feu of ‘Lochogou’ (lost, in MLO or PEB) and another piece (peciam) of land which they have in the place called Amhalh’ and common pasture for animals which they have in the feu of ‘Langeshahe’ (MLO or PEB); the mill of ‘le Stanhus’ (Stenhouse, MLO) with water-courses and entry and exit; the lands and possessions which they have in the places called Kinnaird (STL), ‘Kylmad’ (PEB) and Balvormie (WLO) and universal rights in the diocese of St Andrews, Glasgow, Dunkeld, Brechin, Aberdeen and Moray, and through the realm of Scotland. The monastery shall have these with all liberties and immunities. Everyone is debarred from presuming to exact teinds from them, in respect of their labours which they cultivate with their own hands or at their expense, held before the general council, whether from gardens and orchards and their fisheries or of food for their animals. They are permitted to take in whatever clerics or laymen have fled from the secular world and have converted freely, and to retain them without any contradiction. None of the brothers, after making their profession, shall be permitted to depart the cloister without the permission of the abbot; no one may intend to depart without the surety of common letters, but if this happens, the abbot may promulgate regular sentences against the monks and converts. He prohibits anyone from giving or alienating lands or other benefices of the church without the consent of all the chapter or a major or sound part of it; if this shall happen, he shall decree it invalid. The pope prohibits any of the monks or converts under profession, without the consent and licence of the abbot and a major part of the chapter, to guarantee or accept some borrowed money beyond the price of the chapter unless it is useful to the house. But if by chance he presumes to do [this], the convent shall not be made to answer for it to a certain degree. They are permitted in their own cases, whether civil or criminal, to maintain disputes, to use testimonies of their brethren, lest through the absence of witnesses justice is lost. He inhibits any bishop or another persona to go to synods or foreign convents, or to subject their possessions to secular justice, nor may he impede the regular election of the abbot against the statutes of the Cistercian order. If the bishop in which parish the house is founded should bless an alternate bishop and refuse to confer on the abbot others which pertain to the episcopal office, the abbot is permitted, if he is still a priest, to bless his own novices and others. For the consecration of altars or churches, whether by holy oil or another ecclesiastic sacrament, no one may extort from the abbot by any means. If the seat of the diocesan bishop shall be vacant in the meantime, they may receive all ecclesiastical sacraments from a neighbouring bishop freely and without contradiction. If that bishop shall be in communion with the apostolic see, they shall receive from him the benedictions of equipment and vestments, consecrations of altars, and ordinations of monks. If bishops, or rectors of other churches, promulgate sentences of suspension, excommunication or interdict in the monastery, or on personae established in that place, or their mercenaries, for whom they do not pay teinds, which have been indulged by apostolic kindness to the abbot, or if they had brought forward the same sentence upon his benefactors, this was against the indults of the apostolic see. During a general interdict in the land, they are permitted to celebrate divine office privately and quietly. He has established all the liberties and immunities granted by his predecessors and those liberties and exemptions of secular exaction indulged by kings, by princes or other faithful. Within their enclosures or granges, no one may commit theft or robbery, arson, shed blood, or seize or murder men. The pope directs that no man is permitted to disturb the monastery or carry away its possessions; saving the authority of the apostolic see. Should any secular person attempt to go against this, after three warnings if he should not make amends, he may lost his honour and be liable to divine justice, and subject himself to retribution.
