Document 4/32/33 (Dryb. Lib., no. 230 )

Peter, abbot of Jedburgh, and William, dean of Merse, recite a papal mandate of Honorius [III], appointing them papal judges-delegate in the case called between the abbot and convent of Dryburgh and William, clerk of the diocese of Glasgow, concerning the chapel of Cleghorn (LAN) which William, claiming that it belongs to the church of Lanark, detained against justice and refused to return it. By the counsel of prudent men, they adjudge the chapel of Cleghorn to the abbot and convent of Dryburgh, as pertaining to the mother church of St Kentigern of Lanark; they condemn the adversary of the abbot and convent, William of Hertford, to pay 10 marks in expenses to the abbot and convent and to be silenced about the said chapel.
