He gave and granted the church for the work and sustenace of Kelso Abbey, for the soul of King David, King Malcolm and Earl Henry and the soul of his father, his mother and all of his ancestors and sucessors, and following an assize of King David, it will not be permitted by the monks to give the church of Langton at any time to anyone else. Rather, they are to retain it for all time in their demesne for divine service in order that even now the church belongs to the monastery in which the body of Earl Henry rests.
