Document 2/156/8 (Stevenson, Docs., ii, no. 512)

Boniface VIII grants a decree to William Comyn, provost of St Mary’s, in the city of St Andrews, whose petition sets forth that, on the voidance to that see by the death of William [Fraser], he was not allowed by the chapter to take part in the election of William of Lamberton, chancellor of Glasgow, on which he appealed to the pope, which appeal he renounced in order that the see might not remain void; the pope orders that such renunciation shall not prejudice whatever right he or his successors may have to take part in the election of a bishop.
