Document 4/32/68 (Dunf. Reg., no. 222)

In 1233, on Tuesday after the feast of St Mark the evangelist, in the church of Inverkeithing, before Sir Ralph, prior of May, deputy of the abbot of Paisley, and Master J., rector of the schools of St Andrews, deputy of the dean of Lennox, in the case called between Dunfermline Abbey and Sir Philip de Mowbray and G., his wife, concerning the warranty of garbal [teinds] of Inverkeithing, which case between the parties was quarrelled a long time and after much altercation and confessions made in court, through lawful judges, it was settled in this manner: Sir P. de Mowbray would swear an oath on the gospels to observe the charter and agreement faithfully, and in the presence of all the clerics all the garbal teinds of Inverkeithing were conceded for the use of the monks of Dunfermline by the said P. and G. his wife. If it happens that anyone presumes to disturb the abbot or monks of Dunfermline concerning this, P. and G. will denounce them and defend the said teinds. For the faithful observance of this agreement, Lady G., wife of P. has given an oath to the judges and has appended her seal and the abbot and prior of Culross and other good men have done the same.
