Document 1/7/214 (RRS, iii, no. 207)

Alternate charter of King Alexander II of the foundation of the abbey of Balmerino (cf. RRS, iii, no. 166/ H1/7/170); this version has some different witnesses and variant details, and was likely composed about three years after the surviving contemporary original from 1231.
Firm date
1233 X 1241
Probable date
possibly circa April 1234
Dating Notes
As Stringer points out, the dating clause of this charter (3 Feb. 1231 at Clackmannan), which is the same as _RRS_, iii, no. 166, cannot be correct. The dates here are provided by Walter Comyn acting as earl of Menteith and the appearance of Walter son of Alan (II), who died in 1241. The possible date suggested relates to a dispute between the abbey and Laurence of Abernethy.
