Document 3/28/3 (Stringer, Lords of Galloway, no. 7)

Uhtred son of Fergus, with the consent of his heir Roland, has given and granted to Holm Cultram Abbey the villa called Kirkgunzeon (KCB) in feu-ferme, by its right bounds and with all its pertinents; and he grants one saltworks outwith the bounds in a convenient place, and pasture for their pigs without pannage, through all his woods of his demesne, free from all service and custom, for six pounds annually, half at Easter and half at Martinmas. They have given Uhtred ten marks as a gift, which are to be returned with interest, if they find the land unsatisfactory after three years and wish to demit it. He has also acquitted the service of the king of Scotland.
