Document 4/8/4 (H.C. Reg., no. 133)

An agreement is formed between Holm Cultram Abbey and Dundrennan Abbey, whereby Holm Cultram, who made a claim on Kirkwinning (Kirkgunzeon, KCB), held by Dundrennan from Uhtred, son of Fergus, shall not acquire more land or build more houses or sheepcotes on the western side of the River Nith. But on the eastern side, on land that belonged to Ralph, son of Domnall [sic, Dungal], neither house shall acquire more without the consent of the other. Dundrennan shall have power to increase on the west side of the river, outside the land of the grange of Holm. The flocks of Holm are not to go into the adjacent pastures so far that they cannot return at night to their own grange, until Dundrennan has got land for a grange, to enclose these pastures and prevent intrusion by the flocks of Holm. The pigs of Kirkwinning can go into the woods of Uhtred between the grange and the Nith, but in time of pannage the pigs of both abbeys shall get pannage outside the aforesaid wood.
