Robert Keith writes to the king, noting that when he came to his peace he gave him leave to hold the ward and marriage of the two daughters of Andrew of Crawford, which he had brought from Sir John de Balliol, then king of Scotland. Prays him to confirm the same of his grace. [Attached is the following] At Dunfermline, about Martinmas, year 31, the said Robert prosecuted his petition. The king appointed John of Brittany, Hugh le Despenser, John de Benstede and […], auditors. The pleas for and against not discussed. For the auditors ex parte Regis prohibited Nigel [Campbell] from marrying the younger daughter till it should be discussed by the Council who would have the ward. But Nigel having married thereafter, was called before the Council for contempt. He asserted that the daughter was not in sasine at the date of the prohibition, and there was no contempt. The case remitted to a jury before the guardians and chamberlain, who shall certify the king.
