"Norman Leslie of Rothes and Fythkill married, in 1415, Christian Seton, daughter of Sir John Seton of Seton, for which marriage a papal dispensation was obtained in September 1414, from Pope Benedict XIII., permitting the marriage notwithstanding that the parties were within the fourth degree of consanguinity. The dispensation was addressed to the Bishop of St. Andrews, and set forth that it was represented to his Holiness on the part of a nobleman, Norman de Leslie, and a noble woman, Christian de Seton, that they were desirous of being married, but because they stood in the fourth degree of consanguinity, they could not marry unless they obtained a dispensation from his Holiness ; wherefore they prayed that his Holiness would be pleased to grant them a dispensation. The Pope granted the prayer of the petition..."
