In 1223, an agreement was formed between [Walter], bishop of Glasgow, and the canons of Guisborough concerning the churches of Annan (DMF), Lochmaben (DMF), Cummertrees (DMF), Kirkpatrick, Rainpatrick (Redkirk, DMF) and Gretna (DMF), which should be held by the canons for their own uses, according to their statement. Sir Walter, bishop of Glasgow and the said canons of Guisborough, with solemn and sufficient satisfaction, subjected all appeal, contradiction and quibbling to be removed to the provision of discreet men, who proceeded to ordain that all the garbal teinds of wheat of the church of Annan and Lochmaben with the garbal [teinds] of the chapel of la Rokele are granted for the uses of the said canons free of all exactions and episcopal burdens. All the rest is granted for the uses of the rector of the same church, being provided to the monastery of Guisborough yearly in 3 marks paid by the hand of the rector of the church of Annan for the maintenance of lighting; 3 marks paid by the rector of the church of Lochmaben yearly on the feast of the Assumption of BVM, which 3 marks having been obtained for all raising of contention, with the consent of the chapter of Glasgow, the canons of Glasgow shall pay annually on the Nativity of BVM for the maintenance of lighting. In addition, all the garbal teinds of wheat of the churches of Cummertrees, Gretna, Rainpatrick and Kirkpatrick are granted for the canons’ use with the teinds of wheat from the chapel of Logan, saving to whatever rector in each of those four churches, four skeps (dry measures) of wheat, paid annually through the canons within the parish. All the rest, with the lands and teinds of those lands of the churches, are granted for the uses of the rectors of the churches. The canons may hold one place in the parish in an agreed location and one acre of land in the field to harvest wheat. They provided in addition that Sir Walter, bishop of Glasgow may ordain, by his wish, the said churches when they shall be vacant and rectors may be established in each, without the contradiction of the canons, having not expected the presentation of them. They renounced in perpetuity the ordination and collation of all the churches conceded by the bishop and his successors, saving the garbal teinds and others, and the rights and tenure of the rectors of the churches until they die or resign, saving also the tenure and possession of William of Glencairn in the church of Lochmaben and the chapel of Rokele for his whole life, rendering annually to the canons 33 marks, half at Martinmas and half at Pentecost.
