Document 2/64/30 (Arb. Lib., no. 324)

Brother Bernard, abbot of Arbroath, and the convent of the same place address lord William, bishop of St Andrews, and state that because, through the concession of Dom. John of Arbroath (formerly their abbot), the bishop reserved a pension, they wish and grant by the present [charter] that the bishop should secure a pension (i.e. a provision of sustenance) from the monks’ church of Haltwhistle (Northumberland) for himself and for one friend of his college. However, the monks and their monastery should retain the obedience and ownership of the church by full right.
