Robert, bishop of Ross, and the dean of Ross, papal judges-delegate, settle the controversy between Sir Archibald, bishop of Moray and his chapter and Sir John Bisset over a davoch of land of the church of Convinth (INV) and a davoch in Ross called Erchless (INV) that the bishop claimed as pertaining to his episcopal manse of Moray, which he asked to be restored to him, the said Sir John Bisset claiming those lands of Convinth and Erchless pertained to his feu of ‘le Aird’ by hereditary right. The said bishop called Sir John before the judges concerning the cain of his land of ‘Ard’ and one stone of wax which the bishop and his predecessors had held peacefully for a long time. The bishop and chapter of Moray have renounced the litigation brought against John for these lands and cain, and have quitclaimed all rights. Sir John Bisset, for the redemption of his expenses made in this lawsuit, has given and granted to the bishop 60s. in this land of ‘Munychoch’ in the feu of Aird west of the water, paid by the hand of the fermer, half at Pentecost and half at St Martin.
