Validation, as below. On the voidance in a certain way (not expressed) of the monastery of Abberbroyt, O.S.B. in the diocese of St. Andrews, Paul II, at the instance of Hugh Dowglas, clerk, of the said diocese, committed the cause about the voidance to Francis, cardinal deacon of S. Maria Nuova, to the end that provision thereof might be made to Hugh, but, although the cardinal caused the witnesses on Hugh's behalf to be examined, etc., pope Paul made provision to Richard Guthre. Subsequently the same pope, in consideration of the expenses incurred by Hugh (who was related to king James in the third and third degrees of kindred, was a nephew of the late James, bishop of St Andrews, and had then visited the Roman court for the third time, and had incurred many expenses before the said cardinal) dissolved on Prid. Kal. June anno 7 (31 May 1471), for Hugh's lifetime only, the union of the parish church of Abberneti in the diocese of Dunblane to the said monastery, and made collation and provision of it, value 50l. sterling, to Hugh. The said pope having died before his letters were drawn up, the pope hereby decrees that they shall hold good from the said date, and orders the bishop of Brechin, the prior of St. Andrews and the dean of Dunblane to execute them.
