Richard of Leicester, burgess of Perth, has given, granted, and by this his charter established to Scone Abbey in perpetual alms, save the service of the lord king, that land of Perth, namely, the booth that he bought from Thomas son of Gilbert the Small which was on the west side of the land of Roger Furber in the great street on the north side, and the other land in the same street that was Robert Gurlewald’s, which he (Richard) had from the son of Robert of Perth, namely, that land which he gave at ferme to Simon Taylor. However, he retains these lands for himself in his lifetime, but will give annually 6d. to the said canons on the feast of the Holy Trinity. However, after his death the canons may have and possess these lands perpetually. He has also quitclaimed to the said canons that land in Perth that Alan of Galloway granted to Richard and to Sir William of Lynn.
