Peter son of William [of] Ashby notifies that his father William gave Dryburgh Abbey 10 marks, so that he and his heirs might possess their land of 'Inglisberry' (now Grangehall, LAN) by the same bounds by which the canons had held it. So that the confirmation of the lord king may be acquired for it and they may warrant the said lands, or if this does not happen to be made for them, the 10 marks, which they had accepted, may be restored. Since neither of these had been done, by the council of good men, the 10 marks which his father accepted and which he accepted from them at Lilliesleaf in the presence of Hugh, the clerk of Glasgow, and William the steward, and Gamel and Ever[ard] of Lessudden (St Boswells), and many others, for the same land and charter which his father accepted from them with all right which he had in the aforesaid tenure, he first resigned faithfully to the aforesaid house at Nenthorn in the presence of Lady [Christina], who was the wife of William de Moreville, and John de St Clare, and William his son, and Simon of Nenthorn and afterwards in the synod at Roxburgh. Also, he did the same in the presence of the king’s sheriff of Lanark and the king’s baillies and in front of Walter, the king’s clerk, Richard Gern’, Walter Croc, Hugh, son of the king’s sheriff, William the doorward, William son of Archibald, Walter son of Roger, William son of Hugh and Elias of Crawford and many others. So that this resignation will be observed faithfully, firmly and without fraud, in perpetuity, he has sworn while touching the Holy Gospels, and afterwards he swore (affidavi) in the hand of Sir Osbert, abbot of Kelso, and in the hand of Sir John, dean of Roxburgh, on the fourth of the ides of June (10 June), AD 1200, after the feast of the Holy Trinity, when he was of a lawful age and in his full power.
