Michael Scot, lord of Balwearie, narrates that since he clearly knows, by sealed instruments, and by the faithful and diligent inquiry of trustworthy persons of the land, his ancestors had of old, by charter, heritably infeft Ivo of Bruntshiels of the whole land of Bruntshiels (FIF); and although at another time a dispute arose between Michael and Ivo over certain articles challenging him; yet Michael, having acknowledged the truth of the liberty and infeftment of the said Ivo and his ancestors, did not want unjustly to attempt anything against him; wherefore, he thinks it just that the whole aforenamed land of Burnshiels should be granted to the aforesaid Ivo by the tenor of the presents; corroborating and making firm by his present charter; to be held to Ivo and his heirs of the said Michael and his heirs, in feu and heritage, for giving of homage, without wards, reliefs, marriages, suit at court, forinsec service, aid and army service. Rendering yearly one pair of gilded spurs or 7d. at the Feast of the Apostles Peter and Paul, for all services.
