Process on a petition of Eric, king of Norway, before Edward I., superior lord of Scotland, and his council presented by Hugucio the priest (plebanum) of Châtillon (de Castellione), Master Peter Algoti, Master Bernard Lodowici, William de Thorngham, knight, and Arvo, canon of Bergen, attorneys of the said Eric, before the king and his council of both realms, England and Scotland, at Berewik-on-Tweed, at his parliament there on the morrow of Holy Trinity 1292, showing that whereas Alexander, last king of Scotland, was bound to the said Eric in 14,000 marks sterling for the marriage of his daughter Margaret betrothed to him, whereof he paid 7,000 marks during his lifetime, and for the rest assigned to the said Eric, Margaret his wife and their heirs, the rents of the following lands :— Roscimay in the diocese of Moray, in the bailiwick of Banef, Batheluy in the shrievalty of Aberden, Badked and Radchen in the shrievalty of Edinburgh to wit, 700 marks a year, and any deficiency to be raised from the lands of Minnemorth; and that since the death of the said Alexander the said payments have been detained for three years by the bishops of St. Andrews and Glasgow and the other keepers of the realm of Scotland and praying for redress.

The said attorneys being interrogated as to their proofs by the king and his council, supplicate the king, as superior lord of the realm of Scotland, to cause himself to be certified touching the premises by the bishops, earls and barons, nobles and magnates, and the rest of the council then being of the late Alexander king of Scotland, and to do justice in the matter. Whereupon the king commanded the said persons to let him know the truth herein. And they, assembled in presence of the king of England, said upon their oaths that all the said tenements, except the lauds and tenements of Minnemorth, were assigned as alleged, and the said Eric was in seisin thereof until three years ago, since which time the said keepers have detained the same. And because this is found to be the case by the verdict of the said councillors before our lord the king the superior lord of Scotland, and because the said king of Norway can claim nothing of the said 700 marks yearly, except for the term of his life, by our lord the king the superior lord of Scotland and his council of both realms, it is adjudged that the said king of Norway recover seisin of the said rent from the said lands, except the lands of Minnemorth, and the arrears thereof for the past three years, provided that the said lands, except the lands of Minnemorth, are handed over to some good men of the realm of Scotland, elected thereto by the said Eric, and to no others, who shall be answerable to him yearly for life for the value of the same. And as to the lands of Minnemorth, as he shows no writing or other evidence in support of his petition, he takes nothing for the present, saving his action, if he has any or can show any other evidence in case the said rents do not suffice for such deficiency to be made up out of the lands of Minnemorth.
