William ordains that the church of Brechin may have, hold and possess the church of Catterline and the church of Maryton, with the lands and teinds of Maryton, which the bishops of Brechin held before the bishop’s ordination, along with all the lands and teinds pertaining to the church of Maryton, and the land of Isaacton (ANG) with its right bounds, and also all the just pertinents and liberties which they held in the time of peace. They will make secure and will warrant this land in perpetuity, and forty pennies of sterling from the annual pension the church of Dunnichen is to be received during the feast of Saint Martin in winter, in perpetuity. And additionally, from now on they may have, by full right, the tribute of the vicarages of the churches of Panbride, Kingoldrum, Monikie and Dunnichen, from the vicars of the same churches now living, withdrawing, dying, or by other legitimate reasons retired. The bishop will revive [the churches], and additional specifications are made concerning the sustenance of their priests. On the other hand, William ordains that the abbot and convent of Arbroath may have, hold and possess the rectories or parsonages of the churches of Panbride, Monikie, Kingoldrum and Dunnichen, without any ordinary burdens (i.e. episcopal burdens); however, he reserves to the bishop of Brechin, whomever he may be at the time, the reasonable jurisdiction of the rectories or parsonages pertaining to him by established competence or custom. William also ordains addition specifications applicable to each party.
