Document 2/146/11 (Pais. Reg., 341)

Pope Clement IV writes to the abbot and convent of Paisley, noting their petition that ordinaries of places, desiring their own gains, have sequestered the profits, belonging to Paisley, of the churches which they hold for their own uses, suffering from a lack of edifices, ornaments and other things, which during the time of sequestration are not useful for the said churches, whether concerning correction or emendation of their defects, but [are] being converted for their own uses; also, they refuse to relax this sequestration, unless the abbot and convent shall first pay not a small quantity of money to them. He thus indulges that profits of this sort may not be sequestrated through ordinaries, and if by chance the said ordinary sequestrates them against this indulgence, the abbot and convent may be restored to those freely after they shall be corrected.
