Description
Duncan, by the grace of God, earl of Fife, has granted and by his charter established to North Berwick Priory the land called ‘Gillecamestone’ (ELO) which his father Earl Duncan (I) gave in perpetual alms, free and quit from all custom and exaction, for the welfare of his soul, and which he agrees, because however much one by his services to God confers favours (or benefices?), the more they are devoted to God, they shall received a greater reward. He gives and grants and by his charter establishes Montrave (FIF) and Aithernie (FIF) in perpetual alms, free and quit from all service and exaction and custom, for the welfare of the souls of himself and Countess Ela his spouse. Moreover, he gives and grants those two hospitals next to the southern and northern ferry ports [i.e., at North Berwick (ELO) and Earlsferry (FIF)], which his father set up for receiving paupers and pilgrims. He also gives and grants to them all teinds from his house of wheat and all kinds of grain and of provender and flour and malt and all the teinds of his cheese and butter and all the teinds of pennies of his rents and renders of his pleas and reliefs and his other acquisitions, and teinds of his larder, namely, teinds of cows, rams, pigs, hens, geese, lambs, and all the teinds of his kitchen in meats and fish, and teinds of pelts of his sheep that have died, and teinds of his wool and of his lambs.
