To all who shall see or hear this writing, Oliver and Richard Smalhy, prepositi, and other prepositi and citizens of Glasgow, assembled in the courts of the burgh, that was held at Glasgow on Wednesday the day after the feast of the exaltation of the Holy Cross, in the year of grace one thousand two hundred and ninetythree, greeting in the Lord. Know ye that Odard son of the deceased Richard Hangpudyng, for the weal of his soul and the souls of his predecessors and successors, and the rest of the faithful in Christ, has given, granted, and by this present writing confirmed to St Mary's light in the High Kirk of Glasgow half of seven roods of land towards the east, as they lie in length and in breadth in the crofts beyond the town towards the west, betwixt the land of St Mary's light in the chapel lower in the town on the west side, and the land of Christian late spouse to Symon of Govan on the east side; and has delivered sasine of the said half land upon the ground as use is to Sir John of Botheuyl vicar of the choir of Glasgow, then procurator of the said light for intoll and outtoll. Which land the foresaid Odard and his heirs will warrant to the said St. Mary's light against all men and women for ever. And since the foresaid gift with delivery of sasine was otherwise made before me Oliver then prepositus, in presence of twelve citizens, and Roger son of Philip and John Dubbervile servants, on the Wednesday next after the feast of the beheading of St John the Baptist in the year before mentioned, we have, according to the custom of our city, caused our common seal to be affixed to this present writing in witness of the said deed done in the said court; and in further confirmation of the fact the seal of the Official of Glasgow has been appended to the same.
