Document 2/139/79 (Dryb. Lib., no. 42A)

Pope Honorius III writes to Gregory, bishop of Brechin, German, prior of Restenneth and Dionysius, dean of Angus, noting that William, rector of the church of Gullane (ELO) has lodged a complaint against Walter, knight of Congilton and others of the St Andrews diocese concerning the parochial rights of the said church and other things. He thus commands them to call together the parties, hear the case, and terminate it without appeal, causing what is decreed to be observed firmly by ecclesiastical censure. If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by a similar stricture, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let the bishop and another one of them do it.
