Cecilia, wife of the late John of Partick, since she and her heirs have been in grave poverty, in her free widowhood, with her consent and good will, has granted, given, and by this her present writing renounced and quitclaimed, to Paisley Abbey, any claim that was reckoned to be hers in perpetuity, in all of that land lying in the villa of Rutherglen (LAN) between the land of William of Biggar and the land of Walter son of Walter Ruhe on the north side, between the cemetery of the church of St Mary the Virgin and the River Clyde, which she and her late husband had at one time sold to the abbot and convent of Paisley, for their great poverty and necessity. In return for this renunciation, grant and quitclaim, the abbot and convent will give her the chalders of oatmeal. She has sworn to this in the full burgh court of Rutherglen, has obligated herself and her heirs on penalty of £10, and has subjected herself to the jurisdiction of the lord bishop of Glasgow or his archdeacon.
