William of Abernethy, knight, gives and grants to Dryburgh Abbey two marks for the maintenance of the lighting on the celebration of the masses for Blessed Mary in the said church, received annually from the profits from his mill at Oxton (BWK). He wills and ordains that sufficient money should be had for a special candle before the image of the Virgin Mary in the choir of the church. The render is to be paid annually on the feast of the Purification of St Mary.
