Commission to Henry de Neketon and William de Dacre, sheriff of Cumberland, to extend the 200l. of the land, which the king is bound to assign to A. king of Scotland, his brother, in the counties of Cumberland and Northumberland or elsewhere if it can not be done there, according to the form of the covenant made between the two kings at York, the tenour whereof the king sends them herewith under his seal. They are to proceed as follows. They on the king's behalf and two others on behalf of the king of Scots, having viewed the lands to be assigned according to the said form, and made inquisition of the value thereof, by those whom they think most fit, shall faithfully extend and appraise the lands by the oath of themselves and of the two appointed on behalf of the king of Scots, in the presence of a clerk of the legate, appointed for this on his behalf, as well in demesnes, rents and other issues as in amercements and other pleas of the crown and other liberties, and then certify the king by letters of the names, quantity and metes and divises thereof. And if any discord arise between the two parties touching the value and extent thereof which cannot be settled by the legate's clerk, they shall by letters of themselves and of the other side let the king know the articles of discord, that, in the presence of the legate or of another elected in his place with the consent of both kings, they may be settled. Therefore the king commands them to meet at Carlisle a fortnight after Hilary and continue the business from day to day and place to place until it be finished.
