Richard Kai, with the consent of his heirs, has given and granted in pure and perpetual alms for the work on the causeway that the monks of Coupar Angus were building from the villa of Inchture (PER) to the monks’ grange situated in the territory of the Carse (i.e., Grange, PER), one half of one toft in the villa of Inchture on the eastern side, with one acre of land in the territory of the same villa, lying in length towards the east shore and on the west next to the ‘Soht’ burn. The document is sealed by Sir David de Haye and Sir Andrew of Stirling, clerk of the lord king, at that time persona of Inchture.
circa 24 June 1224 X 18 April 1241
Andrew of Stirling appears as royal clerk and rector of Inchture in charters of Alexander II with these dates. Must be before death of David de Haya, 1237x 18 Apr. 1241.

It is unlikely that ‘Kai’ is a mistake for ‘Hay’ or ‘Haia’, despite the grantor’s location within the parish of Erroll. Note that he says that he does not have a his own seal, and that David de Haya is sealing it for him.
