Memorandum that, on the Thursday next after the feast of the apostles Simon and Jude, AD 1299, in the presence of the lords Robert, treasurer, and Robert of Stampet, canons of Glasgow, commissaries of the bishop of St Andrews, and the only judges delegated by the pope, a settlement was made in Glasgow Cathedral between the abbot and convent of Paisley on the one hand, and the lord Laurence, bishop of Argyll, on the other. Laurence was represented by Master Nicholas, rector of the church of St Modan (Kilmodan, ARG), his procurator, and the abbot and convent of Paisley was represented by Venaldus, monk of Paisley, their procurator. Master Nicholas acknowledged that right of presentation to the vicarage of the church of St Ciaran in Kintyre (Kilkerran, ARG) pertains to the abbot and convent, and that the bishop has no right of presentation to the vicarage, nor any claim in it. Thomas promised that the lord Angus, who was acting for the vicar in the church, resigned the vicarage into the hands of the bishop of Argyll, and the resignation [charter] was sealed by the seal of the lord bishop, before the feast of St Andrew the apostle, in the same year, [since] he had promised to affix it for the abbot and convent of Paisley. The procurator of the abbot and convent, by the interposition of faith, promised that they will present Angus, the chaplain, to the said vicarage, and additionally, the procurator of the bishop promised that the bishop of Argyll should relinquish to the abbot and convent a similar kind of letter for the vicarage of the church of Kilkerran to the one granted to them concerning the vicarage of the church of St Finnan in Kethromecongal (Kilfinan, ARG).
