Document 4/20/59 (Barrow, E. Fife Docs., no. 10)

An agreement is formed between the prior and convent of St Andrews on one side, and Constantine of Lochore, guardian or tutor of John, son and heir of Sir Alexander of Blair, knight, on the other side, whereby Constantine, with the consent of John’s mother Helen and of his uncle William of Ramsey, has granted to the prior and convent the site of their mill of Nydie (FIF) on the River Eden, downstream towards the east, until John comes of age, in return for a payment to Constantine of one pound of pepper at the fair of St Andrews. Should John when he comes of age not wish to continue this agreement he may compel the prior and convent to remove their mill to the original site, and they may so remove it, or to any other site outwith John’s land, together with the stone and timber buildings erected at the mill. The prior and convent’s rights to their old mill is reserved to them and they are to be freed from the payment of the pepper if they are required to move the mill to its original site.
