On 6 November 1314, while holding his parliament in the monastery of Cambuskenneth, an ordinance was finally decided upon by Robert, king of Scots, by the council and assent of the bishops and other prelates, the earls, barons and other nobles of the kingdom of Scotland, and also the whole community of the kingdom, that everyone who was against the faith and peace of the lord king in the war or elsewhere, or who is dead, or who had not come into the peace and faith of the king on the date that this statute was made, are perpetually disinherited of the lands, tenements and all the other statuses that they had within the kingdom of Scotland. Henceforth, enemies of the king and the kingdom should be considered deprived of all claim of rights of inheritance or other rights whatsoever in perpetuity.
