Document 4/26/4 (Menteith, no. 7)

An agreement is formed between Muiredach (Mauricius) earl of Menteith and Muiredach his younger brother, due to a lawsuit that was between them over the earldom of Menteith, which Muiredach junior sought as his right and his inheritance; the aforesaid Muiredach the earl, by staff and baton, resigned the earldom of Menteith into the hand of the lord king William, and the lord king restored the earldom to Muiredach junior as his right; however Muiredach senior will hold in his lifetime by the baillie of the lord king two estates, namely, Malling (STL), Rednock (STL), ‘Tum’ (prob. Watston, Kilmadock parish, STL), ‘Cattlyne’ (prob. Cashley, Drymen parish, STL) and ‘Brathuli’ (prob. Bracklinn, STL) and ‘Cambuswelhe’ (prob. Cambuswallace, STL), which lands Muiredach junior lent to the lord king for the work of Muiredach senior in his lifetime, so that upon the death of Muiredach senior, that land will revert to Muiredach junior without contradiction. The same Muiredach junior on the same day surrendered to his brother Muiredach senior for the marriages of his daughters, Saline (FIF), as the same two brothers held it on the aforesaid day, and Menstrie (CLA) and ‘Kenelton’ (poss. Kinneil, WLO) and ‘Stradlochlem’ (poss. Strathlachlan, ARG)), so that the same daughters and their heirs will come those four lands of Muiredach junior.
