Jordan has resigned by rod and staff into the judges’ hands all right which he claimed to the said land of Stobo and he quitclaimed the same to the church of Glasgow and the bishop. The judges have invested through the same rod and staff that the bishop and church may possess this land in perpetuity and for the resignation and quitclaim, the bishop has given to Jordan £100.
