An agreement has been formed between the abbot and convent of Kelso and Gilbert, son of Alden of Hume, concerning the ecclesiastical benefices of Wedderlie (BWK), claimed by Kelso as belonging to the church of Hume (BWK). G[ilbert] has conceded and quitclaimed to Kelso and the mother church of Hume all ecclesiastical benefices from the said villa of Wedderlie. The abbot and convent of Kelso conceded that G[ilbert] and his heirs may build and have a chapel in the villa of Wedderlie, and now G[ilbert] gave, granted and by his charter established to the same chapel and the monks 5 acres of cultivated land in the villa, for a toft and croft in a suitable place there, and another 5 acres of arable land in the field between his men and sufficient pasture for 100 sheep and 40 animals with certain easements which the persona of the church is being owed in free and perpetual alms. The abbot also conceded that Gilbert shall hold the chapel for his life, rendering yearly to the monks a half stone of wax at the feast of St James. Their clerk, for as long as he lives, shall serve the same chapel three days a week and on feast days stated in the episcopal statues and daily if he wishes. After his death, the monks shall do with the chapel and benefices whatever they wish and serve it three days a week and on feast days from the chaplain of Hume or Halliburton (BWK) or another. After the clerks die, their bodies shall be brought from the place of Wedderlie to be buried at the mother church of Hume.
