Phillip of Halliburton, son and heir of Sir William of Halliburton, the knight, and Christina, William's wife, has granted and by his present charter established to Kelso Abbey, in free, pure and perpetual alms all those lands which David of Graham held and had within the villa of Mellerstain (BWK), and outside of the villa, by the donation of Richard of Fans, which David remitted to Kelso, and which Adam of Fans, his uncle, gave, granted and by his charter confirmed to the abbey. Philip grants the land, liberties and facilities in the villae of Mellerstain and of Fans just as the charters of David of Graham and Adam of Fans, his uncle, secure. Additionally, he granted and gave to Kelso, for the salvation of the souls of himself, his ancestors and his successors, license to make construct, maintain and possess a bridge across the river of Blackburn on his land of Mellerstain (BWK), without impediment by him, his heirs, or successors, to cart their peats and other goods.
