Settlement: DCA DCD Misc. Ch. 1309

Description (from People of Medieval Scotland)

Bishop-elect Roger of St Andrews announces to the clergy of the diocese of St Andrews that, at Edinburgh in the presence of King William and Earl David, the dispute between the churches of St Andrews and Durham over the liberties of the churches which the monks of Durham have in Lothian was settled as follows: with the advice and consent of all his chapter, he granted to Prior B[ertram] and the monks of Durham that the church of Coldingham with its chapels should be free and quit of cain and conveth, procurations and hospitality dues, and all other exactions, synodals and aids and everything else as regards the elect of St Andrews and his successors and all officials of the diocese of St Andrews, reserving canon law and obedience. Similarly, all their other parish churches in the diocese of St Andrews shall be free and quit of cain, conveth, procurations and hospitality dues as regards the elect and his successors, unless they want to give them gratis, and nothing more shall be demanded in those parish churches by officials of the diocese of St Andrews. When a common aid is imposed on the whole diocese of St Andrews, the monks will be responsible for those parish churches. Prior B[ertram] and the monks of Durham, with the advice and consent of Sir H[ugh du Puiset], bishop of Durham, and all the chapter, gave to the church of St Andrews the chapel of Nenthorn (BWK), free and quit both from them and from the mother church of Ednam (ROX).
