David, king of Scots, has given his beloved and faithful James Douglas knight, for his homage and service, all his lands of Woodfield, Tyrie, Seafield, and the two 'Balbretanis' (East and West Balbarton) with mill in the constabulary of Kinghorn (FIF); holding in feu and heritage, making three suits of court at his court of Kinghorn at the three chief pleas. He also grants that James may be free of liability for the rents or pensions, whether in victuals or money owed from the said constabulary, namely of an annual rent of four marks to Arbroath abbey, an annual rent of 12s. owed to Inchcolm abbey, of 40s for the feu of the constabulary of Kinghorn, and of two and a half chalders of barley, two and a half chalders of wheat, and of five chalders of oats owed to the bishop of Dunkeld. The king wills that these payments will be compelled from the residual lands of the constabulary of Kinghorn.
