Document 4/20/45 A (Inchaff. Chrs., no. 91)

Alan, abbot of Inchaffray, and the convent of the same place announces that an agreement was made between themselves and Tristram of Gorthy over the land of ‘Cambinche’ (PER), which was adjudged by prudent men to lie in common between them, in perpetuity. Tristram had asserted a claim to the abbey’s infirmary and chapel and lands lying around them. Tristram quitclaimed all right and claim which he had or could have had in the aforesaid lands to the abbot and convent in perpetuity, saving the right of their lord the earl of Strathearn, and renounced these lands in pure and perpetual and free alms. The abbot and convent have granted to Tristram and his wife Christina fraternity in their monastery in prayers, alms, book of obits (martilogio) and other goods which are generally done for those with confraternity. They have also granted to Tristram that they may have a chapel in which the divine service is celebrated without the indemnity of the mother church. They have obligated themselves to do this by their oaths, touching the Holy Gospels.
