Nicholas de Soules, butler of the king of Scotland, has given, granted, and by this his present charter made firm, to the church of St Mary at Newbattle, and the monks serving God there, in free, pure and perpetual alms, his saltpan in the Carse of Callander (STL), which Walter son of Alan (II), steward of the lord king of Scotland, gave him, with all lands, cultivated or uncultivated, pastures and other easements which pertain by right, or ought to pertain, to that saltpan, according to the recognition made by John, sheriff of Stirling, by precept of the lord king. He has appropriated this alms to the convent (assignauit in proprios usus), so that thereafter they may have a pittance every year, on the anniversary of the death of Fulk, his father, that is, on the morrow of Blessed Thomas.
