Document 4/32/31 (Kel. Lib., no. 49)

The abbot of Jedburgh, the abbot of Dryburgh and the dean of Teviotdale, recite a papal mandate of Innocent III, appointing them papal judges-delegate in the case between the abbot and convent of Kelso and Peter, chaplain of Berwick, concerning certain churches and other things which have injured the justice of the same. Finally, after many edicts, the abbot of Kelso, through the procurator of the convent, established his intention against Ivo, chaplain. Ivo, having been lead by a sound counsel, by pure and free wish with deliberation before them in court, confessed to have nothing of right in the land from which the abbot and convent had brought complaint, both the right which he formerly claimed to have and the possession which he renounced earlier, and he resigned the said land into the hands of the abbot before the judges. Therefore, the judges discern that the abbot and convent may obtain the land, saving that the said Ivo, chaplain, shall have possession of it in the name of the abbot and convent as long as he shall live; rendering to the abbot and convent one pound of incense yearly with the ferme owed from the same land, that at his resignation or death, the said abbot and convent shall dispose of the land freely for their use for divine services through that chapel wherever they wish.
