Non-parliamentary record: accounts of the burgh of Aberdeen

The Aberdeen Council Register for the fourth year of Thomas Chalmers' period as provost of Aberdeen (1437/8) records the expenses of Chalmers and Gilbert Menzies travelling to two parliaments in the third year of Chalmers' provostship (1435/6). Gilbert Menzies and John Vaus had travelled to one parliament, and John Vaus and John Fife had travelled to one parliament 'for the conclusion of a contribution for [Margaret Stewart] the lady Dauphine'. The expenses were withheld until Chalmers could produce sufficient evidence that the expenses had been made.
