In 1304, on the Sunday during the feast of Pentecost, this agreement was made between the abbot and convent of Dunfermline on the one hand, and David of Manuel on the other, viz.: that the abbot and convent granted and leased at ferme to David all their land of Kinglassie (FIF), with the teinds of the mill, and all the other easements pertaining to, or by right being owed to pertain to, the same land. The aforesaid is to be held and had by him until the end of his life, just as Michael of Arnot held or had the land at ferme from the abbot and convent at any time, viz.: that David will lease the land to no other person at any time and will not give it at ferme to anyone. David will render annually to the abbot and convent sixteen marks of good and legal sterling at two times of the year, viz.: half at Pentecost and the other half at the feast of St Martin in winter, out of which,h three marks will be allocated annually by David, for this faithful aid and council, to the abbot and convent, and it is to be presented to their monastery by him perpetually, viz.: twenty shillings at Pentecost and twenty shillings at the feast of St Martin in winter. When it may happens that David dies, the land, with the buildings discovered in it, will be freely returned to the monastery of Dunfermline, and the body of David will be handed over to be buried in the monastery. David will provide the forinsec service pertaining to the land.
