Document 2/1/43 (CDS, ii, no. 1729)

The bishop of Aberdeen shows the king that his church and his predecessors have been in full sasine in King Alexander’s time, and in his own, and beyond the memory of men, of his second teinds, and the king had warranted them against disturbance by letters to the warden of Scotland beyond the mountains and his sheriffs of Aberdeen and Banff; but the present chamberlain will not let him have them without a new order from the king, whereof he prays remedy. The said bishop shows the king that one of his prebendal churches, that of Belhelvie, possessed in King Alexander’s time, a piece of land called St Ternan’s land, lying between St Ternan’s chapel and the sea on the north; which was leased to the thane of Belhelvie by the persona of Lony, after whose decease the land was wrongfully attached to the said thanage by the king’s servants, and taken by force from the church in the time of the war. Prays an order to the chamberlain to take an inquest, and if true, that the land be restored to the church.
