Description
In 1254, there was a dispute between the abbot and convent of Arbroath, on one side, and Sir Peter de Maule lord of Panmure and Christina his wife, on the other, over the boundaries of the abbey’s lands of Conon (ANG) and ‘Tulloch’ (Tillyhiot, ANG?), bordering with the lands of Peter and Christina of Panmure (ANG). The lord king, through his letters had given command to Sir Alexander Comyn, earl of Buchan, justiciar of Scotia, to perambulate the boundaries of the said lands, calling together the parties on St Alban’s day of that year concerning 'Carnconnan'. By the mediation of Sir William of Brechin, G. de Hay, Robert de Muhaut, and others, the following was agreed. Peter and Christina have quitclaimed rights which they have in the land of ‘Brekkes’, just as the bounds were determined on that day, in the presence of Sir A[lbin], bishop of Brechin, Sir N[icholas] de Mowbray and others, from all exaction custom and secular demand in perpetuity and that they will defend the aforesaid land from all royal services, by these underwritten boundaries (by stated bounds, including towards the marsh of Gamel and the land of Sir Eustace de Balliol). The abbot and convent will pay Peter and Christina annually from the villa of ‘Brekkis’ 2 marks, at Pentecost and Martinmas. If they shall not make payment, Peter and Christina are permitted to claim distraint. The abbot and convent have quitclaimed 20s. annually from the land of ‘Scryn’ in the feu of the said Peter and Christina. Both parties swore in the hand of A[dam], archdeacon of Brechin, to observe this. Also, boundaries were made between Tullach and Panmure (ANG). All this is made under penalty of 100 marks.
