The dispute between the monks of Newbattle and William de Vaux of the land above the Peffer (ELO) was ended in the following manner, that is when faithful men came by the king’s command to that land in order to perambulate it, Sir William de Vaux, seeing and understanding through the counsel of his friends that the monks asked for nothing other than the right marches between Haddington (ELO) and Eldbotle (ELO), granted and quitclaimed to the monks the land for good peace while William de Montfort, D. [Sir ?] Oliver [son of Kilvert?], Ness [of London?] and William of Graham and other barons and knights perambulated in the presence of a great many, and others testified to the marches.
Note that the charter of William Noble concerning our abovementioned infeftment has a double, and that two charters have been over and above what is required—that is, one of William Vaux who earlier infeft the same William Noble of the same holding, and the other of the Master of the Knights Templar by the same William Noble concerning a confirmation or fixed rent—neither of which relate directly to us. The third is a letter of humble request by the said William Noble to all the individuals who would be willing to be witnesses in his charter. The scribe has not written out the text of these documents because they are of little consequence.
