Pope Urban III writes to Brother Jocelin, bishop of Glasgow, taking the church of Glasgow, a special daughter of the Roman church with no intermediary, into his protection, following Popes Alexander and Lucius; 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 the place where the church of Glasgow is situated, with all pertinents, that is, the burgh of Glasgow with all liberties which King William granted and strengthened by his script, Newton (LAN), Garrioch (LAN), Dalmarnock (LAN), Carntyne (LAN), ‘Crag’ (lost, LAN) , Govan (LAN), Partick (LAN), Shettleston (LAN), Balornock (LAN), Barlanark (LAN), Cadder (LAN), Balornock (LAN), Bedlay (LAN), Kinclaith (LAN), ‘Tor’, Carstairs (LAN), Stobo (PEB), Gilmerton (MLO), Ashkirk (SLK), Lilliesleaf (ROX), Hermiston (MLO), Troneyhill (ROX), Ancrum (ROX) with all its lands, churches, chapels and other pertinents; in addition, the church of Cadzow (LAN), with the chapel of Machan (LAN), the churches of Renfrew (RNF), Carnwath (LAN), the chapel of the castle of Roxburgh (ROX), the church of Old Roxburgh (ROX) with the chapel of Fairnington (ROX), the church of Morebattle (ROX), with the chapels of Clifton (ROX) and Whittons (ROX), the churches of Hassendean (ROX), Wilton (ROX), Traquair (PEB) and Peebles (PEB) with the chapel of Manor (PEB), the church of Kirkurd (PEB), the chapel of ‘Munmaban’ (lost, PEB?) , the churches of Carmichael (LAN), East Kilbride (LAN), Moffat (DMF), Kirkpatrick Juxta (DMF), Dryfesdale (DMF), Hutton (DMF), Castlemilk (St Mungo, DMF), Hoddom (DMF), Colmonell (AYR), with all rights which they have in churches, chapel and pertinents; also the districts of his diocese, namely Teviotdale, Tweeddale, Clydesdale, Eskdale, Ewesdale, Liddesdale, Dryfesdale, Annandale, Lennox, Strathgryf, Mearns, Largs, Kyle, Carrick, Glencairn, Strathnith, Desnes and whatever rights in Galloway; the teinds of the king’s cain in Kyle and Carrick, and the eighth part of all the king’s pleas in the diocese in gold, silver and animals and the tofts and lands in the king’s burghs pertaining to those churches; the prebends of the churches. He also forbids anyone from invading or illicitly detaining them; and he establishes the liberties and immunities indulged by the kings of Scots, and the customs, rents and services pertaining to the churches. The pope directs that no man is permitted to disturb the church 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.
