Robert of Kent, Robert Hunaud and Roland, son-in-law of Nicholas de Côtentin, has given at ferme for thirty three years and by this their charter have established to Kelso Abbey, their land, forest and pasture in the territory of Innerwick (ELO), by stated bounds which include the land of the monks, free and quit from every service and from inware and utware and from every aid and from every custom and exaction, for an annual render of twenty shillings at the feast of Saint James, with specified freedoms and restrictions. If they wish to sell, place at ferme or give in alms the said land, forest and pasture at any future time to anyone after the terms of the aforesaid convention have ended, they promise to give it to the monks if they want it. The agreement begins at the feast of Saint Martin after Phillip, king of France, and Richard, king of England, left for Jerusalem in the year 1190.
circa 4 July 1190
The feast of St Martin mentioned in the charter is probably his ordination and translation, on 4 July, rather than the more common 'St Martin in Hyeme'. This was the date on which the two kings left Vézelay for Outremer.
