King Alexander II for Lindores Abbey; he has granted that the abbot and convent may hold in free, pure and perpetual alms all the lands which they have held since the first foundation of their house, with all customary liberties, and quit of aids, army service and other forinsec services.
This cartulary copy of a 14th-century inspection purports to date from Alexander's 33rd regnal year, i.e, 1247. However, that date is manifestly impossible: the witness list includes both Walter, son of Alan (II), the steward, who died in 1241, and one 'William Olifard' who is most likely an erroneous rendering of Walter Olifard (II), who died in 1242. It is worth noting that Walter the steward was justiciar of Scotia from 1232 until his death, and Walter Olifard (II) was justiciar of Lothian during the same period. The most likely explanation is that the date was miscopied from regnal year 23.
