Additionally, he gave and granted to Kelso eight parcels of land which belonged to Patrick Burnard, enterance and exit rights, freedom to dry their peat, pasture rights, and the freedom to build a bridge to the peatry. Additionally, he gave them licence to dig what they need from a peatry to construct the bridge. Additionally, he granted them licence to take from his wood resources of 'Stoch' and 'Ramail' to strengthen their pool of Kelso (ROX). Additionally, he gave and granted to Kelso land, by stated bounds, which include a fosse made by Richard the Fleming. Additionally, he gave to Kelso two oxgangs between the peatry and the croft of Henry of Hoga. Additionally, he gave and granted to the same monks the whole moor and land in the territory of Gordon, by stated bounds, which include 'Brademedue' which Sir Thomas, his father, gave to them. Additionallly, he gave to Kelso licence to extract peat from the territory of Thornydike and the territory of Gordon, and enterance and exit rights. Additionally, he gave and granted all the donations, concessions, confirmations, and liberties of Richard, his grandfather, and Thomas, his father, as secured in their charters. If he or his heir go against any of these donations, they subject themselves to the jurisdiction of the archdeacon of Lothian and the officials in order that they may be able to compel them by ecclesiastical censure.
