Agreement: NRS GD45/13/293

Description (from People of Medieval Scotland)

G[ilbert], bishop of Dunkeld, Abbot J[ohn] of Lindores and Abbot P[hilip] of Scone announce that an agreement was formed between Sir Clement, bishop of Dunblane and Sir Innocent, abbot, and the convent of Inchaffray whereby the bishop, with the assent of the clergy of Dunblane and Sir Robert, earl of Strathearn, patron of the see, abandoned his action against the abbey and renounced all rights which he sought or believed he had concerning the churches of Aberuthven and Tullicheddill, and the teinds coming from the earl of Strathearn, which are called ‘second teinds’ which the bishop claimed as belonging to his mensa. The abbey assigned to the bishop, in the name of the church of Dunblane, an annual payment of £16 sterling. If the bishop or his successors break this agreement or if any advantage comes to his church through our decision, he should restore it to the opposite party and also pay £200 sterling to the fabric of the bridge of Perth by way of penalty; if the abbey breaks this agreement they shall pay to the same bridge £300 by way of penalty.
