David, earl of Huntingdon, has given and granted Fintry (ANG) to Hugh Giffard in feu and heritage, in augmentation of the other feu which the earl gave him.
Firm date
1173 X 1174
Dating Notes
Use of first seal and Scribe A, who penned documents dating to 1172 and 1174, point to the period 1173 × 1174, when David (unsuccessfully) claimed the earldom of Huntingdon. It is possible that he continued to use his first seal after his accession to the earldom in March 1185. See Stringer, _Earl David_, 235, for full explanation of dating.
