Alexander Fraser, son of the late Sir Andrew Fraser, the knight, states that because lord Bernard, abbot of Arbroath, and the convent of the same place have granted and vicariously hold through him, for the time of Alexander’s life, their land of Torry (ABD), as their letter to him testifies, Alexander, with a grateful soul, promised, promises and by the present letters admits to be holding the land for the presentation of faithful council, aid and labour to them and their monastery, whenever it may be necessary in all their works, as often as it may be required. And concerning this, he also resigned to the monks and their successors, for the time of his life, by oath of fealty, and through the present [charter], he resigns to them the annual pension given to him by lord John, former the abbot of Arbroath, and the predecessors of the convent of the same place, viz. an annual return from Conveth (KCD).
