Notes
This charter appears to be a confirmation of Bishop Robert's grant of Kinninmonth to the priory; however, while the act of donation seems to have predated the royal confirmation, the bishop's charter almost certainly did not, as the king's charter was witnessed by William, the first abbot of 'Stirling' (i.e., Cambuskenneth) and the bishop's charter was witnessed by Isaac, the second abbot of 'Stirling' (See St And. Lib., 125). For that reason, the dating of this charter in the Syllabus of Scottish Cartularies is not reliable.
