Document 3/724/1 (Stevenson, Docs., ii, no. 499)

Thomas of Fishburn petitions his lord the king that he will do him a kindness respecting land to the value of 20 marks rent in Ednam, near Roxburgh, which Sir John de Balliol gave him within nine weeks after he had done his homage to our lord the king for the realm of Scotland at Newcastle, for money which he owed to the said Thomas. And this rent the said Thomas took peaceably for three years and a half by the hands of the tenants of the said villa of Ednam, while there was peace between the king of England and the said King John. When the war began, Thomas was disturbed in the receipt of the rent until Edward I went to Flanders. At that time, at London, the king granted a brieve to the said Thomas, which he carried to the Earl Warenne, at that time guardian of Scotland, who caused him to have seisin of the said rent according to the purport of the charter. The said earl ordered Sir Walter de Agmondesham, then chancellor of Scotland, to make for him a writ to the sheriff of Roxburgh to have seisin of the said rent. Because the Scots again rose up against the king, and Sir Hugh de Cressingham and others were killed at Stirling, the said brieve was not delivered to Thomas, nor has he received anything of the said rent. Wherefore he prays the king to command his chancellor of Scotland to make him a brieve for the said rent.
