In the year 1294, this agreement is made at Lovat in the Aird, between Hugh de Ros (later Rose) and Mary, his spouse, on the one hand, and Sir David of Graham, the knight, on the other, viz: that Hugh and Mary unanimously granted, leased at ferme, and gave to Sir David of Graham one davoch of land in the tenement of ‘Edirdowyr’ (Redcastle, ROS), viz.: that whole davoch which is called Kilcoy, with all the pertinents, liberties, rights and easements pertaining to the land, to be held and had by David and his heirs or assignees until the end of eight years, with the first year beginning at Pentecost in 1294. Thenceforth, David and his heirs or assignees are to render during the first four years [of the agreement] two pennies of sterling per year to Hugh of Rose and his heirs or assignees, viz.: one penny is to be rendered after the feast of Pentecost, and one penny after the feast of St Martin in winter, and they are to render during the final four years, eight marks of sterling at two times of the year (i.e. Pentecost and St Martin), for all service, custom, or secular demand. Hugh and Mary reserve their wood of Kilcoy, along with one acre of land which John called Dalt formerly held; so that Sir David and his heirs or his assignees and his men may have and take from the wood to burn and to build according to their will in the land of Kilcoy. Conditions and penalties are stipulated in case of war or failure in the terms of any of the aforesaid. Hugh and Mary promise warrandice and stipulate that on the completion of the eight years the land is to revert to them.
