Roger de Quincy, constable of Scotland, and Helena his wife, daughter of the late Alan of Galloway, make known that they, acknowledging that the villa of Eddleston (PEB), with its pertinents, with the full right, belong to the church and bishops of Glasgow, although the said Alan of Galloway and certain others of their predecessors, constables of Scotland, had unjustly detained the said villa for some time. He has resigned and in perpetuity quitclaimed the said villa of Eddleston with all its pertinents to Blessed Kentigern and the church of Glasgow and to William, bishop of Glasgow and his successors, in the presence of William, bishop of St Andrews, and Henry, prior of St Andrews. He has sworn touching the Gospels that he will not act contrary to the resignation and quitclaim at any time, and that he will not disturb the church of Glasgow in any way as regards the feu of Eddleston.
