Document 2/140/4 (Kel. Lib., no. 331A )

Pope Gregory IX writes to the precentor, chancellor and penitentiary of York noting that a complaint has been brought to him by Roger, rector of the church of Elsdon (Northumberland) against the abbot and convent of Kelso, G[ilbert de Umfraville], knight, and certain others of the St Andrews and Durham dioceses concerning teinds, possessions, rents 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 If the witnesses named shall have withdrawn out of favour, hatred or fear, they shall compel them by the same censure, without appeal, to provide testimony of the truth. If all of them cannot take part in carrying this out, let two of them do it.
