Document 2/71/24 (Dunf. Reg., no. 336)

[Dunfermline Abbey?] has given, granted and by this his charter established to Newbattle Abbey one boat and one net in their fishery, where formerly, by the permission of their predecessors, they used to fish. However, [Dunfermline?] reserves the river of Esk all the way to the shore of the sea, so that in the river, in so much as it extends into their dominion, the monks of Newbattle may not obtain license to fish. The boat and net are to be held and held from them and their successors in perpetuity, free and quit from all service and demand, and the monks of Newbattle are to render to [Dunfermline?] two pounds of pepper every year at the feast of the Translation of Saint Margaret the queen.
