Document 2/5/9 (SEA, i, no. 38)

Jonathan, bishop of Dunblane, mentioning founding of Inchaffray Priory by Gilbert, earl of Strathearn, and Countess Matilda, establishes possessions, benefices, immunities and goods, decreeing that place called in Gaelic 'Inche affren' be given over to exercise of religion, according to Rule of St Augustine. May that be a place of peace and quiet to those fleeing there, so that no one may enter who is a cause of disquiet or iniquity, but only for reason of prayer or bodily or spiritual safety. He causes canons' possessions to be noted (specified), reserving canonical justice.
