Finally, after many altercations, taking pity on the poverty of the monastery, and desiring a share in its prayers, he has given, granted and quitclaimed to the canons of Inchcolm Abbey all right and claim that he had in the advowson of the church of ‘Fithkil’, whether in his own name, or in the name of the said Thomas, who ceded his right to the earl.
