Document 3/20/5 (CDS, ii, no. 1631)

William, earl of Ross shows the king that as the ‘foreign isles’ of Scotland and their ‘chieftains’ were quite opposed and disobedient to King John, he commanded him to make war on them, wherein he spent £1,000 and more of his own, but took Llewellyn and the other chieftains and brought them to King John’s will; for which costs and expenses the king leased him in feu ferme the lands of Dingwall and Ferintosh, at the same rent as in King Alexander’s time. Wherefore he prays the king that he may not lose them, as he only got them by gift as above, and not for making war on the king who is now.
