To hold of Master Anthony for his lifetime without burdens or secular demands; saving also pleas and escheats in the abbot’s court, and any manner of teinds of the whole land; paying at Paisley to the abbot and convent, during the fairs of Glasgow, one pound of pepper or 6d. If it happens that another part of the land of Fulton shall be acquired by the said abbey worth 4 marks or more, they shall hold the whole land for two or three years as they wish; afterward they shall assign the said land to Anthony for a payment of 4 marks of the remainder of the said 20 marks. After his death, he grants that the land shall revert to the abbey. He declares that he does not have power or authority appropriate or give at ferme the said land in part or in total, he renounces all claims and appeals regarding the land.
