Document 1/7/331 (RRS, iii, no. 323)

King Alexander II for Richard Chamberlain (Chalmers) and his wife Joan; has granted land of Gibliston (FIF), to be held of king and his heirs for fourth part of one knight's service.
Firm date
5 April 1248
Dating Notes
5th day of April, regnal year 36 (sic). This is an act of Alexander II, despite its attribution to Alexander III by an annotator of the source, on the grounds that the former did not reign thirty-six years whereas the latter did. The regnal year given by the transcriber must therefore be an error. Bernard of Ripley regularly witnessed for Alexander II in the period 1245-9: cf. Stringer, _Essays_, p. 117.
