Original (contemporary)
Duncan of Carrick did not participate in the war of 1215-17. William, bishop of St Andrews, was absent in Rome from 1215 to 1217. Alexander, sheriff of Stirling, was likely also absent from the king's court during this time. This charter shares a place and time with 1/7/42, below. Thus, both charters can be narrowed down to 1218 × 1221. A charter issued the following day at Edinburgh, on 3 Oct. 1219 (1/7/48), shares 7 of its 8 witnesses with both 1/7/46 and 1/7/47: William del Bois, the chancellor, Earl Patrick (of Dunbar), Earl Malcolm of Fife, Alan son of Roland the constable, Alexander, sheriff of Stirling, Walter Lindsey and John Maxwell. The unusual appearance of Earl Patrick means that these were very unlikely to have dated from different years.
