Gregory, bishop of Brechin, John, prior of Restenneth and Denis, dean of Forfar, recite a letter from Honorius [III] appointing them judges-delegate in the case between William [of Gullane], rector of Gullane and the prioress and nuns of South Berwick and others, concerning the chapel of Dirleton (ELO). By the authority of this mandate, the parties, having been called before the judges, have submitted themselves to the ordination of William, bishop of St Andrews, promising to obey whatever he shall ordain. The said bishop thus ordained that the said nuns shall have the said chapel with all its teinds, that is, of Elbottle, Dirleton and ‘Karmurhoc’, for the lifetime of William of Gullane. The nuns shall also have the oblations made by the familia of Sir William de Vaux or others who shall be lord of the castle of Dirleton or made by any others who are not parishioners of the mother church of Gullane. William, rector of the said church, also promised to observe this agreement. The bishop also directed that all burdens would be answered by William, said rector of the church of Gullane for three parts, and the nuns for two parts.
