Memorandum that when the lord king Alexander commanded his sheriff and bailies of Lanark to inquire into the tenure of Adam de Liberatione of the land of Pettinain (LAN), which he holds in chief of the lord king, and what service he owes therefore to the king, with the extent of the land that Thomas de Normanville holds of him, and that they should compel Adam to produce his charter by which he claims to hold the lands of the lord king, with the inquest that was ordered over the aforesaid land of Pettinain, and anyone detaining the said charter to restore it. An inquest was made at Lanark by the barons and burgesses, namely, by William Wafrarius, former sergeand of the lord king, Ralph ‘Ferur’, William son of Muthe, Gamel of ‘Hindeford’, Richard, steward of Carmichael, John ‘Scurri’ of Pettinain, Thomas son of Adam of Carstairs, William Rufus of ‘Ranestrother’, jurors, who say that the said Adam and his heirs are bound to make service to the king of two archers, and, moreover, of one sufficient sergeand on horseback to do all the usual liberation in the household, with grooms and hounds, of which service these served first: Robert Collan, Robert Scevel, Laurence Lovel, Adam of Forfar, Edward de Liberatione, John Prat, who accepted nothing from the lord king except food. Moreover, if the ward or relief or marriage should happen, they ought to pertain to the king. The seals of William Wafrari and Gillecrist of ‘Sipelawes’ are appended. Isabella his daughter has the charter of the land.
