Thomas of Restalrig has given, granted, and by this his charter established to Dunfermline Abbey a full toft in Leith (MLO), free and quit from all custom and exaction, in free and pure and perpetual alms. He gave them the toft which is nearest to the toft of Philip de Valognes on the southeast, facing the sea.
circa 1209 X 5 November 1215
Thomas of Restalrig witnessed a charter of King William, 1209×10 (_RRS_ ii, no. 492) and was sheriff of Edinburgh at some point between 20 Aug. 1216 and 3 Nov. 1219 (_Dunf. Reg._, no. 155). He also witnessed a charter dating to 1227×30 (_Moncreiffes_, no. 2) and was involved in a dispute on 6 Oct. 1226 (_Dunf. Reg._, no. 218), and granted to Inchcolm Priory, 1220×26 (_Inchcolm Chrs._, no. 13). The wording of the description of the toft clearly suggests that Philip de Valognes is still alive.
