Document 2/42/0 (Stevenson, Docs., ii, no. 625)

Master Walter, dean of Elgin, writes to his lord the king, for John of Stirling, his cousin, a native of Berwick, who was under age at the time when the Scottish war began, and the father of the said John died four years before this war, so that neither the said John nor his father ever offended against his lord the king. Master Walter and John pray that the king would be pleased of his grace to grant to John his inheritance in Berwick, of which his father and grandfather died seised. Moreover, he prays that the king would grant him twenty oaks in his forest of Launde Morigoun, in the place nearest Elgin, in order to build and repair two houses and to surround his garden, which were destroyed by the prince’s army when he resided in his manor of Elgin.
