John son of Lagmann, son of Malcolm MacFearchar has given, granted and by this his present charter established to Sir Colin Campbell, the knight, and to his heirs or assignees those two penny-lands of John’s land of Kamesnemichlach (Kames, ARG?) and of Hacheteyheweyne, with their correct bounds, in feu and heritage, to be held and had without reservation. Colin and his heirs or assignees are to provide the forinsec service of the king and the king’s aids, and suit in John’s court of Ardrokynryke at three pleas per annum. Colin and his heirs or his assignees should come to John and his heirs, when it may be necessary, in the community of Argyll, [and] two individuals [will be provided] with victuals from the two penny-lands as long as they should remain, as is custom in the region. John promises warrandice.
Sir Colin Campbell was knighted in 1280, and killed in 1296. There was no ‘King’ in Scotland from 1286 to 1292. The charter is probably of about 1295. ‘Duncan son of Ameledy’ and ‘Donald MacAnecol’ both appear in an Inhibition of 1294 in Paisley Registrum, p. 203 (Lamont Papers, p. 8).
