Document 3/17/65 (Lenn. Cart., 28)

Malcolm, earl of Lennox, has given, granted and by this present charter established to Arthur son of Maurice Galbraith and his heirs, license to make a prison in all their lands which they hold from the earl or others in the earldom of Lennox, and license for a court to be held concerning robbery and concerning the pretexts of the men in his land of Lennox when it may be necessary, with the escheats and benefits from quarrels occuring because of work, [which are] to be received by Arthur and his heirs. Malcolm reserves for him and his heirs that when any robber may have been condemned in the court of Arthur and his heirs, that the body should be suspended at his gallows, and if a duel may be adjudged in Arthur's court, Malcolm wishes it to occur in his and his heir's court. Additionally, he grants to Arthur and his heirs that they may freely have the right which is called ransellis in English, without any impediment of him and his heirs.
