David, king of Scots, since he has understood from certain evidence related by certain sworn and faithful men that by false testimony and malevolent suggestion that was given to his father (King Robert I) that the land of the late John Lipp in the sheriffdoms of Aberdeen and Banff should have been forfeited, and seeing that this suggestion is seen to be untrue, and that the said John Lipp died in the honour and state of the realm, not in war nor in arms, or against him, but of natural causes in his own house, and should not have been forfeited. Considering the innocence of the said John, and that his son Walter Lipp died faithfully in defence of the king and kingdom at Halidon, and his beloved Thomas Lipp, son of the said late Walter, and his faithful service, and the great danger to the soul of his said father caused by the unjust alienation of the heritage of the said John, the king now gives Thomas for his homage and service the lands of Netherdale, 'Drunnaketh', 'Pecynbruxnenbh' with the office of constable of Cullen in the sheriffdom of Banff (BNF) and the whole barony of Schivas (ABD) with its bondsmen, measured by his late grandfather John Lipp, with is customary fishery in the Ythan; holding in feu and heritage, as his grandfather John held it; for service owed and wont.
