David, king of Scots, has inspected a charter of the late Alexander [II], king of Scots, his predecessor, for Pluscarden priory, finding that the same were infeft of all in the mills of Elgin and Forres (MOR), with the mills belonging to them, and their multure. He ratifies this infeftment by his predecessor lord king, and declares that the lands of Longmorn, Quarreywood, Tulloch, Darnaway, and Sanquhar (MOR) in the earldom of Moray had not been converted into arable land at the time of the said infeftment, but afterwards have been converted into arable by the late Thomas Randolph, earl of Moray, whom Lord Robert, king of Scotland, his progenitor gave the aforesaid earldom of Moray; he wills that the aforesaid religious men ought to receive their multure freely and quietly. And he grants the religious the multure of the aforesaid lands in posterity; holding in free, pure and perpetual alms, as freely as any alms in the kingdom of Scotland.
