Document 3/307/1 (Barrow, Judex, no. 2)

Description
Brice (Mael Brigte), judex of the lord king, declares that he has received testimony in front of God and his saints that when there was a certain dispute between Humphrey of Berkeley and Walter son of Sibbald about the bounds of the lands of the same Humphrey which the lord King William gave him for his homage and service, and of the lands of the same Walter, and of the rights pertaining to these lands, Matthew, bishop of Aberdeen and Gilbert, earl of Strathearn, at that time justiciars of the lord king, had met on Humphrey’s and Walter’s lands by order of the lord King William. Brice (Mael Brigte), judex of the lord king, was present together with them by order of the lord king to break off the dispute between the aforesaid knights by means of good men who would perambulate the lands of the knights according to the assize and custom of the realm. As a result a walking was conducted that day by good men who knew well the bounds of the lands of the aforesaid knights and who, after accepting the shrine from my hand, swore that they would be negligent neither on account of any gift nor on account of fear of Humphrey of Berkeley, who was sheriff at that time, but would perambulate justly the rightful bounds of the aforesaid lands. These were the perambulators who swore: Angus mac Duncan, Malbride Macleod and Dubscolóc of Fetteresso and Murchad and Malmure mac Gilmichel and Gilchrist mac Flaithbertaig and Cormac of Nigg(?), Boli mac Gille Ferchair(?), Duncan the judex, Gilpatric mac in prior, Malise Machormandi, Gilchrist Macblei, Coinnech Macblei. And he declares at Forfar on St Martin’s Day on the year after the lady Queen Joanna first entered Scotland, in front of the lord King Alexander and in front of the lord William del Bois, chancellor of the lord king, and Sir Thomas, clerk, John of Maxwell steward of the lord king, and Sir Harvey of Kinross, and Sir John de la Haye, and the Sir Robert of Inverkeilor, sheriff of the Mearns, Adam steward of the lord abbot of Arbroath, and many others.
