Document 4/32/50 (Moray Reg., no. 73)

Herbert, abbot of Kinloss and Thomas, prior of Urquhart, recite letters from Walter, abbot of Deer, Master Alexander, dean of Aberdeen, and Malcolm, archdeacon of Aberdeen, in which they recite letters of Pope Honorius [III], appointing them papal judges-delegate in the case between the bishop of Moray and Nobleman David of Strathbogie and others of the dioceses of Aberdeen and Moray, concerning Rhynie (ABD) and certain other lands, possessions, teinds and other things. The judges-delegate appoint the abbot of Kinloss, prior of Urquhart and the prior of Kinloss as their deputies. By the authority of this, the deputies, through a published act, Gilbert Durward was called and on account of his contumacy, Andrew, bishop of Moray was put in possession of a half davoch of land, that is, of Boleskine (INV), which the same bishop claimed from Gilbert, since as agreed by the judges, he neither came nor undertook to send a response at the fixed day and place. A year having lapsed, the bishop was decreed in possession of the half davoch of land, because Gilbert did not take action nor offer security, thus, at the instance of the bishop, the judges decided and established true possession of the land, reserving to the opposing parties the complaint of ownership.
