John Comyn, earl of Buchan and constable of Scotland, addresses Henry of Preston, his baillie of Heriot, and states that because he infeft Sir Nicholas Hay, lord of Erroll, John’s kinsman, in twenty heritable mark-lands in the lands of Garvald and Ladyside in the tenement of Heriot (MLO), which John considers to be less than sufficient, and wishing to augment his donation to Nicholas, John firmly mandates and orders that Henry of Preston provide sasine of the land of Rasaw to Sir Nicholas and place him into possession of the land so that he may have twenty pound-lands, following the tenor of the charter which Nicholas has from John concerning this.
