Document 2/137/61 (Pais. Reg., 229)

Pope Innocent III writes the archdeacons of Dunkeld and Dunblane and to the master of the schools of Perth stating that he has received a complaint from William, clerk, against the monks of Paisley and others of the Glasgow diocese, who presume to claim that the chapel of Prestwick belongs by right to the church of Sanchar, and other injuries. Therefore, the pope commands by their discretion, by apostolic letter, to call the parties together, to establish what is canonical, without appeal, causing what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure; if the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of hatred or fear, by the same censure, the judges shall compel them, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot carry this out, then two of them shall.
