In 1186, while Symon was chaplain of Molle, Eschina de Londoniis, otherwise styled the Lady Eschina of Molle, confirmed to the monks the church of Molle with the lands and all other liberties as they held them on the day on which the charter was given and granted them also for the weal of the soul of her lord Walter the son of Alan, of her daughter (apparently Eschina) who was buried at Kelso, and of others, that they, and the chaplain, and their other men dwelling in the town of Molle upon the church land, should have common pasture with reasonable stock and other easements in common with her men of Molle. About the year 1198 the Lady Eschina again confirmed to the monks the church of Molle as far as it belonged to her, with all its just pertinents in lands, pastures, and common easements of the same town, as the cyrograph made between them and her testified. About the same time Henry of Molle, her husband after the death of the Steward, confirmed to them the church of Molle with the tofts and crofts belonging to that church, as well on the west side of Meredene as the haugh towards Cliftun, and with all other just pertinents granting also that they and their chaplain and their men dwelling in the town of Molle should have common easements in the town along with his men of Molle."
