Document 3/15/112 (Kel. Lib., no. 306)

Patrick of Dunbar, earl of March, for the salvation of his soul and all his ancestors and successors has given, granted, and by this his present charter established to Kelso Abbey, in free, pure, and perpetual alms, the chapel of Fogo (BWK) with the mill of the same place, etc. which Sir William, son of the earl, and Sir Nicholas Corbet, conveyed, in whatever manner, to the chapel in the tenement of Fogo, unbound and quit from every secular exaction and demand. It is to be held and had by the abbot and the convent and all of their successors perpetually, in pure and perpetual alms, just as any alms in the kingdom of Scotland are being held and possessed by any other religious [house], so that Patrick, and his heirs or successors, have no right in the chapel, except that they are able to receive masses and prayers. The monks of Kelso will obtain three chaplains for divine celebration in the chapel in perpetuity.
