Malise, brother of Gilbert, earl of Strathearn, has given and granted, and has established by this his charter, to Arbroath Abbey, in free, pure and perpetual alms, half a mark of silver from his fishery at Meikleour (PER), to be taken of him and his heirs each year at the Pentecost term.
circa 1199 X 24 March 1201
Appearance of royal clerks William de Boscho and Gilbert of Stirling × royal confirmation (_RRS_, ii, no. 419), which dates to before 24 Mar. 1201 (Robert de Quincy died after 28 August in ‘1200’). Barrow has suggested that Malise’s grant was written up at the same time, but while the witness list does suggest Malise’s charter was written up at the royal court, it does not suggest that it was done at the same time as the confirmation, due to significant variation in witnesses.
