David, king of Scots, notes that Lord Robert, his steward of Scotland appeared in the presence of the king and his council on the 14th of February, 1341, at the church of the Friars Preachers in Aberdeen, seeking livery of sasine and possession of Liddesdale (ROX), because of the king's donation to him made at the time when he was promoted to the order of knighthood, by resisting the Lord William Douglas' claim to the said lands to himself by reason of the wardship of the son and heir of Lord Archibald Douglas. He displayed a charter of infeftment of the said Lord Archibald Douglas. Hearing the arguments of both parties and the discussions of the prelates and magnates of his council, the king will deliver to the said steward sasine and possession of Liddesdale.
