She has quitclaimed and resigned for herself and her heirs the said villa of Eddleston with all its pertinents in perpetuity to Blessed Kentigern and the church of Glasgow and William, bishop of Glasgow, any right which she may have had in the same villa; she has sworn touching the Gospels that she will not act contrary to her quitclaim and resignation, nor will she injure or disturb the church of Glasgow over the feu of Eddleston.
