Pope Eugene III writes to John, abbot of Furness, and the brethren there, taking the church into his protection; all the possessions and goods which they have or may acquire by papal permission, by the liberality of kings or the gifts of the faithful, may remain with the abbot and his successors, including: from the gift of Earl Stephen, the forest of Furness (Cumberland), and Walney with all the hunting; Dalton, with all the dominion of Furness; Ulverston with the land of Roger Braithwaite, the fisheries of Lancaster, the land of Little 'Guaring', and everything within Furness except the land of Michael Fleming. From the gift of Robert 'Bovill', Kirksanton and 'Harrum' (Hornem?). From the gift of William, nepos of King David of Scots, 'Caldra', and the mill there, 'Bermerton' (Dermerton?) and 'Flolegate' (Floligate). In 'Scaddesbutle' (Stadsbutle?), one house, free and quit, 'Withofhd', the fishery at Derwent [Water?], the fishery at 'Eggre' and pannage for swine throughout the lands of Ranulf Mustin, who had formerly granted these to Furness. From the gift of Godard of Coupland, half of 'Foss'. From the gift of Michael Fleming, 'Fordbotle', and from the same, in exchange for Bardsea, 'Crivelton' (Crimleton?) and 'Ross'. In Man, the gift of the Nobleman Óláfr, king of the Isles, the lands of 'Carneclet' (Carvecset?) up to the monastery of St Leoc, the villa of ‘Thorefil Asser’ [Thorkel, Kirk Michael], the villa of Great Melan, the _villa_ of ‘St Melii’ [Kirk Malew], the _villa_ of 'Narwe', 'Stainredale' (Stamerdale?), the land of St 'Corebric' (Corebrie?) and 'Fragerwl' (?Fagerul). The abbey is exempt from tithes on new lands brought under cultivation by them or at their expense. They are also exempt from tithes on the offspring of their animals. The pope directs that no man is permitted to disturb the church or carry away its possessions; should any secular person attempt to go against this, after three warnings if he should not make amends, he may lost his honour and be liable to divine justice, and subject himself to retribution.
