Document type notes
The main difference with the above charter, aside from slightly stronger wording throughout, is the emphasis on the rights to the River Tyne, suggesting that some specific question had arisen after the initial grant, evidently that described in no. 91.
Note also the following: ‘Memorandum that Mary of Hailes made the charter of her donation three times with the same contents, and moreover that she wrote to those who she used as witnesses supposing that they would have agreed to it if their names were put in the charter.’ (Newbattle Reg., p. 72)
