Peter de Haig, lord of Bemersyde, states that while an agreement was formerly made with the abbot and convent of Melrose with respect to his transgressions that he and his heirs would annually render to monks 10 salmon, the monks considered this to be an act of disinheritance of him and his heirs. Therefore, he agreed with the abbot and convent, in accordance with John, his son and heir’s agreement and concession, that he and his heirs are held and by the present record obliged to render to the Abbot and Convent every year ½ stone of wax at the chapel of Saint Cuthbert of Old Melrose on the day of the blessed Cuthbert or 30 pennies.
