Document 2/140/68 (ND, App., no. 648A)

Pope Gregory IX writes to the bishop, treasurer and precentor of Glasgow noting that David of Lumsdaine has related to him that his late grandfather, Edward, was accused by the king of carrying away goods of a certain ship lately wrecked and through this was condemned to death, against justice; for his redemption he paid a certain amount of money, [and] on account of being compelled by this necessity, he exchanged his villa of Oldcambus (BWK) with a certain piece of land called in the vernacular Lumsdaine (BWK) with the monks of Durham, 8 marks being added by the same; [but] in this exchange he claimed to have been deceived by more than half the just price. The pope thus commands them to call together the parties, hear the case, and [terminate it without appeal,] causing [what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure. If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let the bishop and one other do it.]
