Pope Alexander III writes to Brother Jocelin, bishop of Glasgow, taking the church of Glasgow, a special daughter with no intermediary, into his protection; all the possessions and goods which they have or may acquire by papal permission, by the liberality of kings or the gifts of the faithful, may remain with the bishop and his successors, including Glasgow (LAN), Govan (LAN), Partick (LAN), ‘Inienchedin’ (Shettleston, LAN), ‘Roder’, Carstairs (LAN), Stobo (PEB), Dalmarnock (LAN), Kinclaith (LAN), Troneyhill (ROX), Hermiston (MLO), Lilliesleaf (ROX), Ancrum (ROX), Gilmerton (MLO), Ashkirk (SLK), with all their lands, churches, chapels and pertinents, also the churches of Morebattle (ROX), Old Roxburgh (ROX), Traquair (PEB), Peebles (PEB), Carnwath (LAN), ‘Morthevic’ (perhaps Moffat, DMF), Hassendean (ROX), Wilton (ROX), Ashkirk (SLK), ‘Lachoruar’ (Borthwick, MLO), whatever right he has in Teviotdale, Tweeddale, Clydesdale, Annandale, Dryfesdale, Lennox, Kyle, Carrick, Galloway and Lothian, with all churches, chapels and pertinents, as the privileges of the Roman see and the charters of the kings of Scots and other donors establish. The pope also sanctions the prebends of the churches, which I[ngelram], Jocelin’s successor, held, and forbids anyone from invading or illicitly detaining them. He also establishes the liberties and immunities indulged by the kings of Scots.
28 February 1175 X 30 April 1175
28 Feb. or 30 Apr. 1175
2 kal. May, 1174, pontifical year 16 – however, although the pontifical year is correct, it states the 6th indiction, so should perhaps be read as 2 kal. Mar. (28 Feb.). See also _Scot. Pont._, no. 76
