David, king of Scots, by the exhibition and inspection of certain letters of Pope Adrian IV and letters of his predecessors Alexander (II) and Alexander (III) and of his lord father (Robert I), kings of Scotland, and by inquests and declarations shown him by Alexander, bishop of Aberdeen, and since discussions have been held in his parliament and his council, it is clear that the bishops of Aberdeen have been continuously in possession of the right to second teinds of all the king's fermes, rents and escheats in the sheriffdoms of Aberdeen and Banff, either within burghs or outwith, and either from the issues of justiciar, chamberlain or sheriff courts or any of our other courts. The king commands his justiciar north of the Forth, the sheriffs of Aberdeen and Banff, the grieves of burghs and their baillies, that they satisfy the said bishop of Aberdeen and his successors in perpetuity for the aforesaid second teinds.
