Document 2/143/129 (Lind. Cart., no. 100)

Pope Innocent IV writes to the abbot of Dunfermline and the prior of May, noting that the late David, earl of Huntingdon, founder of the monastery, conferred to them the right of patronage which he had in the church of Dundee, in the diocese of Brechin, and the diocesan of this place, with the consent of his chapter, considered the same church to be granted to them for their own uses, and what was done by the same bishop was established by the apostolic see. He thus granted that no prejudice should come to the monastery in respect to the church from the fact that the brethren who have been accustomed to be in the church of Brechin were called céli De and now by name-change are to be styled canons. He therefore commands them to prevent anyone from troubling the abbot and convent without just cause, contrary to the tenor of his grant regarding the matter, compelling those molesters through ecclesiastical censure. If both of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let one of them do it.
