Document 2/158/4 (Camb. Reg., no. 62)

Pope Clement [V] states that at the petition of the Abbot and convent of Cambuskenneth which related to the perpetual vicarage of the parish of the church of Clackmannan (CLA), vacant by the appointment of Maurice of Strathearn, vicar thereof, to the archdeaconry of the church of Dunblane, and on account of the losses they had suffered by the wars which had for a very long time raged in those parts, and by the conduct of certain sons of iniquity, who had seized and carried off the chalices, books and the rest of the ornaments of the altar, and other goods belonging to the abbey, and through the destruction of the bell-tower by lightning, which had so reduced their circumstances that they were totally unable to repair the choir of the abbey, which was going to ruin, he now annexes the vicarage, which was stated in the petition not to exceed the value of ten marks yearly, to the abbey, and states that the fruits, rents and profits thereof are to be enjoyed by the abbot and convent, they being bound to maintain divine worship therein by a qualified chaplain of their own selection.
