Robert, son of Gilbert earl of Strathearn, has promised and bound himself to Sir Innocent, the abbot, and the convent of Inchaffray, placing his trust in the hand of Sir Abraham, bishop of Dunblane, in the presence of trustworthy persons, namely, Gilbert, archdeacon of Dunblane, [blank space] and Cristin his brother, Duncan son of Adam, knight of Fife, Malise, steward of Strathearn, Brice, prior of Crieff, and Malise his son, Macbethad the judex, and many others, in the church of Strageath (PER) that never in his lifetime will he unjustly harrass the abbot and convent, but will honour them as the most special friends, and saving his own rights and honour, by counsel of his friends, he has granted, and established by his charter, the churches of Gask (PER) and Strageath (PER), and all other churches, lands, possessions, liberties, rights, customs, easements, teinds and other things contained in the charters of his father the earl and of himself. Moreover, if robbery, theft, or any other trouble, as patron of the house he will prosecute their rights as he would his own, maintain their cause, and compel those who have injured them to make satisfaction, and he will make no peace with any such offender without the counsel of the abbot and convent, and only after fully securing the rights and honour of the house.
