Parish notes

Following upon a dispute between the bishop of Dunblane and Walter earl of Menteith in 1237-38, the earl received permission to erect the priory of Inchmahome, to which he granted, with the bishop’s permission, the church both in parsonage and vicarage. The cure was to be served by a chaplain, who in the 15th c. seems to have been one of the canons of the priory, which appears to have held the fruits of the vicarage (Vet. Mon. no. xci; Inchaffray Liber, xxxi; Arb. Lib. i no. 176 [I cannot find any reference to Leny here, nor in either of the indexes to Arb. Lib. , both names of people and names of places]; ADC 184; APS iv, 344; Fraser, Menteith ii, no. 87; RMS iv no. 2524). Cowan 1967, 130.
