Document 2/140/96 (Theiner, no. 102)

Pope Gregory IX commands the abbot of Dryburgh and the priors of Dryburgh and Kelso, on petition of the abbot and convent of Dundrennan, in regards to the cause between them and Nicholas, knight, and Cecily, his wife, of the diocese of Whithorn about certain possessions and other things belonging to her dower. An agreement was made but the said N. and C. asserting that by fear of Alan, their lord, it was made too much in favour of the other side, obtained papal letters to the abbot of Tongland in regard to the annulment of the said agreement. After various pleadings on either side, and hearings before J. canon of Tongland, the dean of York, and other judges, the cause is remitted to the above, whom the pope orders to carry it through.
