Henry, abbot of Scone, and the convent of the same place, by the common consent and assent of their whole chapter, and for the utility of their monastery, have given, granted and leased at feu-ferme, and also by their present charter established, to Walter called Bisset, lord of Lossindrum, and his heirs all their land in the tenement of Buttergask (PER), with its pertinents, freedoms, easements, etc., to be held and had just as Gilbert called ‘of Buttergask’ or any of their tenants held or possessed the land from monastery. They are to annually render to the canons six shillings and eight pennies of good and legal sterling for the land at two times of the year, viz.: half at the feast of Pentecost and the other half at the feast of St Martin in winter, for all other service, burden, secular exaction and demand and for servile work to be provided. And if it happens that any great offense involving the plea of life and life should come forth in the land, the canons or their baillies, in partnership of Walter or his heirs or their baillies, will hold a court concerning it, and if any escheat relating to the offense should emerge, it will be divided: half of that escheat should remain in the power of the canons and the other half should remain in the power of Walter and his heirs in perpetuity. The canons promise warrandice.
