Document 3/129/1 (Analecta Scotica, ii, no. 6)

Reginald of Carriden, son-in-law of Philip d’Eu, with the consent of his wife Eda, has given, granted and by this his charter established, to Culross Abbey, in pure and perpetual alms, an acre of meadow in the territory of Carriden (WLO), in exchange for a toft and a small garden, over which there was a dispute between himself and the monks, namely, that toft which lies on the northern side of his land, as far as the burn which is between the land of Philip d’Eu and the land of William de Vieuxpont. Moreover, he announces that he, with the consent of Eda his wife, has sold to the aforesaid abbey, for 25s, that whole piece of land between the lands of the monks as far as ‘Coldune’, which he held and which he was assigned in free marriage for 2 ½ acres with the aforesaid Eda his wife. He has given and granted these lands free and quit from all service, exaction, custom and secular demand.

Dating Notes
Foundation of Culross Abbey × RH 1/2/51, below (charter of Roger son of Philip d’Eu). It is interesting that the charter refers to the lands of Philip d’Eu and the lands of William de Vieuxpont, as both of these men were probably dead by 1217. William in any case appears to have died between 1196 and 1205, perhaps × 1198.
