Description
Inquisition taken at Perth on the last day of May in the king’s 33rd year [31 May 1305] before Sir John, earl of Atholl, warden of Scotland beyond Forth, and Sir John de Sandale, chamberlain of Scotland, in the presence of Sirs Henry de Beaumont and Thomas de Grey, knights, and Robert of Balcomie, attorneys of Isabella de Vescy, by Sirs Alexander of Abernethy, David of Brechin, Nicholas de Hay, Constantine of Lochore, Alexander of Lamberton, Malise of Durie, Michael Scott, Mark of Clapham, Richard of Denmuir, Walter of Lundin, knights, Master Malcolm of Gatemilk, Thomas Kair, John of Abercrombie, Simon de Herok, Walter of Logie, and Robert de Herok, jurors, who find that Alexander, king of Scotland, father of the late King Alexander, gave to Richard de Beaumont, Isabella’s ancestor, and his heirs, the barony of Crail with its pertinent, by charter, wherein was contained a right of fishing or toll of 8d. from each last of herrings; and as some bailiffs wished to reckon salt herrings, to the merchant’s damage, they made a fine to assess the quantity of tonnage in each ship by estimate of good men, which is now called cain. The said Richard pledged the manor to Walter, then Stewart of Scotland, who advanced him money for his journey to the Holy Land and enjoyed the cain peacefully while he held the barony. After Richard and Walter’s death, the barony fell into the late King Alexander’s hand, and was recovered from him by Walter’s executors till the end of the lease. They say expressly that King Alexander, father of the late king retained no part of said cain. The barony then remained in the late King Alexander’s hands for his life as no sufficient heir appeared. John de Balliol, then king, gave the barony and pertinent to Isabella as heir of Richard. One Theobald, Isabella’s bailiff, leased the cain to Sir John of Cambo for a term, who paid the rent for a year, whereon the said John, king of Scotland at the suggestion of some who said that it belonged to him, took possession of the cain at Candlemas 1295-6, drew the issues and besides, at Easter following took the whole barony of Crail in his hands on account of the war, while Isabella for same reason sent no one to claim her cain; and so King John remained in possession till King Edward recovered Scotland. They append their seals.
