Document 4/8/36 (Duncan, May Docs., no. 59)

In a controversy between Martin, prior of May, for his priory and the abbot and convent of Scone over the tithes of the fishings of Sleepless and Inchyra (PER) which May claims by common law as being within the parish of their church of Rhynd, and over the grant of an annual pension of two marks payable by the abbot to the prior, the matter was long debated before the commissaries of William, bishop of St Andrews, and both parties agreed with his consent and authority, the prior of St Andrews agreeing, that Masters William of Yetholm, archdeacon of Dunblane, and Alexander Kinninmonth, rector of Tannadice, might ordain in the matter, both parties having sworn to accept their decision. They ordained that May should not disturb Scone over the fishings, but should renounce them to Scone. Scone should pay the pension, as had been done immemorially, to May. Both parties swore to observe this.
