Document 4/11/11 (Dunf. Reg., no. 340)

An agreement is made between the abbot and convent of Dunfermline, represented by Master William of Eckford, their procurator, on the one hand, and Lord William, curate of the church of Inverkeithing, on the other hand, in the presence of William Beall, canon of Glasgow, vicegerent of the bishop of St Andrews, concerning the restoration of the choir of the church of Inverkeithing (FIF). In the presence of the judge, Malcolm of Gatemilk, the procurator the abbot and convent of Dunfermline put forward the monastery’s case, asking for many things including that William of Inverkeithing should desist from his troublesome actions, that he should rebuild the choir as often as it will be advantageous, and that he should provide the expenses accrued [by the abbey] when embarking on the lawsuit. Authentic instruments [relating to the church] were exhibited in the judge’s presence, by which the abbot and convent hoped to establish their intentions, and make their positions. The instruments showed that the right of the garbal teinds of the church of Inverkeithing pertained to them by apostolic authority, and that they were not responsible for any episcopal burdens or other burdens of the church of Inverkeithing, and that the right of presentation of parish clerks in the church of Inverkeithing belonged to Philip of Mowbray and Galiana, his wife, and his heirs. Therefore, the judge understood that the abbot and convent are not be held for the restoration of the choir of the church of Inverkeithing, and he pronounced, and also declared, defintive sentence, and William, the curate, was told to provide eight marks of sterling asked for in judge’s presence by reason of the expenses accured in the protracted dispute by the monks, [which amount] was valued by the judge.
