Document 2/96/8 (Stevenson, Docs., ii, no. 501)

Abbot and convent of Jedburgh and Sir Ivo of Aldborough write to an unknown person [John de Warenne?] noting that whereas he awarded and gave as judgment by his word of mouth at Roxburgh by the lord of St John and by himself that the forest of Jedburgh should continue in the keeping of the abbot of Jedburgh and Sir Ivo of Aldborough, who are the farmers of their lord the king, and that what the king had done by his writing should continue; and whereas the said constable of Jedburgh has still disturbed the said farmers as before, the addressee has caused the king’s writ to be sent to the sheriff of Roxburgh to cause the said forest to be delivered to the said farmers according to the said commandment, and he has does nothing herein. Wherefore, if it please the addressee have the goodness to provide a remedy, so that the king’s procedure may be to his profit and his own judgment may have its force, to the addressee’s great honour.
