Document 3/21/33 (Neville, Strathearn, no. 40)

Robert, earl of Strathearn, has granted and by his charter established that donation which Sir Fergus his brother made to Lindores Abbey of Feddal (PER) in ‘Kather Mothel’ [in exchange] for the teinds that they had annually by gift of Sir Malise, his paternal uncle, which teinds they have quitclaimed and which charters they have resigned. He wills and grants that they hold Feddal by its right bounds with all its pertinents, with communal easements and liberty to take what they need for their buildings and their agriculture in the wood of Fergus and his heirs, in free, pure and perpetual alms. No man may respond for any secular exaction, as the charter of Fergus attests.
