Thomas, prior of St Andrews, Ivo, prior of May, and Master Simon of St Andrews, announce the settlement of the case called before them as papal judges-delegate, concerning the church of Maxton (ROX), between the abbot and convent of Dryburgh and Hugh, knight, of Normanvill and Richard of Normanvill . . . of Maxton. The abbot and convent quitclaimed to Henry, knight, and his heirs all rights which they claimed to have in the church of Maxton, and that at no time would they bring suit against the same knight concerning the same church. The knight, for good peace, has given, granted and by his charter established to the abbot and canons of Dryburgh a half ploughgate of land in the territory of (Long)Newton (ROX), complete and quit from multure, from all custom and secular exaction and by the marches that are contained in his charter. The knight and his heirs also warrant the land to the said canons against all men; they may have common pasture for 4 oxen and one horse with the men of (Long)Newton; the abbot and convent shall hold and possess the land in pure and perpetual alms. The judges confirm by papal authority and have appended the seals of the bishops of St Andrews and Glasgow.
