Judicial proceeding: forfeiture for the crime of treason
Forfeiture of the late James Colville

On the which day the Carrick pursuivant, sheriff in that part, compeared and presented a royal summons under the great seal, concerning the summons of Margaret Forrester, widow of the late James Colville of Easter Wemyss, James Colville, son of the late James, and his other bairns, before the king and his three estates, the tenor whereof follows:

King James, etc., to lyon king at arms, Ross, Marchmont and Rothesay, heralds, James Johnston, John Pardovan, Robert Black, Thomas Hamilton, James Lindsay, key keepers, Ormond, Bute, Dingwall and Carrick, pursuivants, John Gourlay, William Hardy, Archibald Heriot and Alexander Hutton, messengers, sheriffs in that part. Gives command that they summon in the presence of witnesses Margaret Forrester, widow of James Colville of Easter Wemyss, James Colville, son and alleged heir of James, personally, if possible, and any other widows, sons and daughters having interest, at the market crosses of Stirling, Clackmannan and Cupar, to compear in parliament to be held at Edinburgh in the tolbooth on 2 March next, for seeing and hearing James declared to have incurred the crime of lese-majesty while he lived by the three estates, for his treasonable contravention of our mandate on 21 August last, and for other causes moving the king, to enter [ward] at Blackness Castle, on pain of treason, which he not only disobeyed, but he immediately afterwards associated himself with Archibald [Douglas], earl of Angus, and George Douglas, his brother german, rebels and traitors, in counselling and acting with them to the destruction of the king and lieges, and therefore the memory of James is to be damned, and all his possessions, lands, goods, etc., at that time and afterwards are to remain with the king, and all goods sold, given or donated afterwards to his wife or anyone else are to be recovered, to remain for the king and his finance in perpetuity. And further it is to be intimated to the persons that whether they compear or not, the king and his justiciar will proceed to justice, and these letters are to be returned duly executed and endorsed. And those who execute the letters are to be present on that day, carrying the witnesses of the summons in writing, committing full power thereto. Under the great seal, Edinburgh, 10 January [1541], 28th year of the reign.

After this summons was read, the same sheriff proved in parliament that it was executed by his endorsement and certain witnesses contained in the endorsement, who were produced by him in that place and sworn, namely Alexander Hutton, messenger, John Cargill, John Rennie and John Kerr, the tenor of which endorsement follows:

On 15 January, the year of God foresaid, I, Carrick pursuivant, one of the sheriffs in that part within constituted, passed at the command of these our sovereign lord's letters and summoned Margaret Forrester, the widow of the late James Colville of Easter Wemyss, personally apprehended, to compear before our sovereign lord and his justice at the day and place within written, with continuation of days, to the effect within written, after the form of these our sovereign lord's letters in all points and articles contained therein. And upon the same day and on 16 January, I passed to the market crosses of Stirling and Clackmannan and there, by open proclamation, summoned James Colville, son to the said late James Colville, and the rest of his bairns and daughters and all others having interest, to compear before our sovereign lord and his justice at the day and place within written, with continuation of days, to the effect within written, in all points after the form of these letters. This I did before these witnesses: Alexander Hutton, messenger, John Craigingelt, provost of Stirling, and Archibald Spittal, John Cargilll, John Kerr and John Rennie, with diverse others.

Upon 17 January, I passed to the market cross of the burgh of Cupar and there, by open proclamation, summoned James Colville, son to the said late James, and the rest of his bairns and daughters and all others having interest, to compear before our sovereign lord and his justice, day and place within written, with continuation of days, to the effect within written, in all points after the form of these letters. This I did before these witnesses: David Lindsay, provost of Cupar, Alexander Hutton, messenger, Gilbert Seaton and John Cargill, with diverse others. And for the more witnessing to these my executions and endorsements, my signet is affixed.

This court of parliament shows for law and I give for doom that, forasmuch as it is found by judgement of parliament that the late James Colville of Easter Wemyss, knight, has incurred the pains of crime of lese-majesty for the treasonable disobedience of the grace the king, being commanded to enter himself in ward in the castle of Blackness but passing out of the realm to the company of Archibald [Douglas], sometime earl of Angus, and George Douglas, his brother german, his grace's rebels and traitors, treating with them for the destruction of his grace, his lieges and realm, for which causes the memory of the said late James is declared to be deleted and all his goods, movable and immovable, lands and gear at the said time and since then pertaining to him until his death to be confiscated and to remain with his highness as his property, with all other gear conveyed by him to his wife and bairns since the committing of the said crime, possessed or occupied by them to remain with our said sovereign lord in time to come. And this I give for doom.

Item, that because of the negligence of divine service, the great dishonesty in the kirk through not making of reparation to the honour of God almighty and to the blessed sacrament of the altar, the Virgin Mary and all holy saints, and also the dishonesty and misrule of kirkmen, both in wit, knowledge and manners, are the matters and causes that the kirk and kirkmen are belittled and contempted, for remedy hereof, the king's grace exhorts and prays openly that all archbishops, ordinaries and other prelates, and every kirkman in his own degree, reform themselves, their obediencers and kirkmen under them, in habit and manners to God and man, and that they cause in every kirk within their diocese under their jurisdiction, cure and rule reparation and reparelling to be honestly and substantiously made and done to the honour of God almighty, the blessed sacrament and divine service, every kirk after the quality and quantity of their rents; and if any person, alleging themselves to be exempt, will not obey nor submit to their superior in that behalf, the king's grace shall find remedy thereof from the pope's holiness, and likewise against the said prelates if they be negligent.

That no private conventions be made to dispute the Scripture

Item, that no one hold or allow to be held in their houses or anywhere else congregations or conventicles to commune or dispute the Holy Scripture unless they be theologians approved by reputable universities or admitted thereto by those who have lawful power; and similarly that no man, whatsoever state or condition he be of, lodge, shelter, cherish nor favour any heretic; and in case any receives or knows where they are, they shall immediately denounce and accuse them before the next lawful justice officer under the pain to be punished as heretics.

Reward for those that reveal conventions and accuse heretics

Item, to stop the private congregation and conventicles of heretics where their errors are spread, that any man who first reveals immediately or accused anyone who has kept the said conventions, if he has been one of them himself, for the first time he shall be free therefrom and absolved thereof, so that he be a good Christian man and have the right faith, permitting him never to intromit with the said errors in time coming; in case he be not of the said congregation, then he shall have one part of the confiscation of him that he accuses as the lords think expedient to statute and ordain, and this to be extended to all those that reveal or accuse any heretics to have one part of their confiscation; and so that no man pretend ignorance thereof, that it be commanded under pains to all sheriffs, provosts and bailies of burghs to publish by open proclamation these acts at the head places of their jurisdiction twice in the year.

Ratification of the institution of the college of justice

The king's grace, with the advice of his three estates of parliament, understanding that the institution of his college of justice and acts made thereupon are right profitable to his grace and all the whole realm and, therefore, now after his perfect age of 25 years, has ratified and approved, and ratifies and approves for himself and his successors, the institution of the said college of justice and the acts made for administration of justice therein; and also ratifies and approves the confirmation, ratification and approbation of [Clement VII], our holy father the pope, of the erection of the said college and of the gift of all benefices, rents given and to be given, assigned and to be assigned for the honest sustentation of the said college of justice, and all privileges granted and to be granted thereto by our said holy father the pope and his highness; and wills and ordains, for the causes foresaid, that the said college and institution thereof remain perpetually for the administration of the justice to all the lieges of this realm, and to be honoured as any other college of justice in other realms. And also gives and grants to the president, vice-president and senators power to make such acts, statutes and ordinance as they shall think expedient for ordering of processes and the hasty expedition of justice; and in absence of the president and vice-president wills that the eldest in order of the said senators be president for the time, to the effect that there be no stop of justice at any time through the absence of the said president and vice-president.

Hackbuts and other small artillery to be furnished within the realm

Item, because the shooting of guns, hackbuts, hand-bows and other small artillery now commonly used in all countries, both by sea and land, in their wars is so savage and of such great danger to the high courage of noble and valiant men, whose acts and deeds cannot be shown unless they too have provision of these instruments of war and battle, it is therefore statute and ordained by the king's highness, with the advice and consent of the three estates of his realm, that every landed man within the same shall have a hackbut of found, called the hackbut of croichart, with their cams, bullets and pellets of lead or iron, with powder suitable thereto, for every hundred pound of land that he has of new extent, and he that has only a hundred merk land shall have two culverins, and each man having a forty pound land shall have one culverin, with cams, lead and powder appropriate thereto, with gun supports, to be at all times ready for shooting of the said hackbuts; and that every man of living foresaid shall have one man or more as he may furnish for shooting of the said hackbut and culverins and to teach others to shoot the same; and that every man have the said artillery belonging to his living, substantiously furnished as is said, ready within 18 months after the publication of this act, under the pain of doubling of the price that will buy each piece of the said artillery, to be applied to the king's grace use for buying of the same for himself; and the said 18 months being passed, that every man make his musters with the said artillery, well-furnished as is said, at the next wappenschawing thereafter to the partakers and receivers of the said wappenschawings, which being done they shall not be bound to bring the said artillery to any wappenschawings thereafter unless they be specially required thereto by the writings of his grace the king or by the sheriff or other judge ordinary under the king's grace; and that this act be extended as well to the lords of regality and their tenants as to them of the royalty, and that every kirkman furnish such artillery in the manner above-written to be shown at wappenschawings as is said after the value and quantity of their temporal lands, and that their artillery remain at the castle, abbey or mansion of the bishop, prelates or kirkmen, to be kept there and left to his successors who shall be held to uphold the same for the defence of the realm. And because it cannot be now clearly known of every burgh the value and quantity of the artillery and how much they may furnish, therefore, it is ordained that letters be written to the provost, bailies and aldermen of every burgh of this realm signifying to them this statute and ordinance of the manner of furnishing artillery to be made by the barons and kirkmen, charging them, therefore, to convene their council, advise and conclude what artillery and in what manner each burgh may furnish themselves, and refer again to the king's grace within 15 days after they have been charged thereto, that his highness may be advised therewith; with certification if they fail in the said matter, his grace shall cause them to be taxed after the value and quantity of their common good and substance for furnishing of the said artillery; and ordains that ladies of conjunct fee and liferent shall furnish according to the quantity of their living for support of the barons and other landed men in the supply of the said artillery.

For bringing home hackbuts, culverins, powder and harness

Item, because neither artillery nor harness can be furnished nor made ready according to the acts made thereupon unless the same be brought home by merchants, therefore, it is statute and ordained that every merchant sailing out of this realm, or sending his goods extending to a last of goods, shall bring home as often as he sails or sends his goods at every time two hackbuts of croichart or as many as his wealth may furnish, with powder and cams for furnishing of the same, or else as much metal as will make the said hackbuts, with powder pertaining thereto, and likewise harness for furnishing of the lieges of our sovereign lord in manner foresaid.

For staunching of theft, stealing and robbery

Item, because the crimes of theft, stealing and robbery are so commonly practiced amongst the king's lieges, and for staunching of the same, it is statute and ordained in this present parliament that where any of the king's lieges express a grievance or complain upon a thief that has reived or stolen his gear or his men's, and is in service or in submission to the authority of any man and shows the same to the man that he is in service with, and would accuse him before the law for the same, this man that this thief or reiver is in service with, or finds him with him or under his submission, shall be held and obliged to produce and bring him to the law before the justice, sheriffs or any other that has knowledge to do justice upon such persons, committers of such crimes, at days and places affixed to them to underlie the same, or else shall deliver the said thief or reiver to the complainer to be brought to the law and judged as is said; and if his master or sustainer of this thief or reiver refuses to do the same, he shall be held art and partaker of his evil deeds and shall be accused thereof as the principal thief or reiver, and also shall restore and satisfy to the complainer the goods reived and stolen from him; and if this complainer, after he has arrested this thief or delivered to him as is said, would make agreement with the said thief and take thift-bute and put him from the law, in that case he shall underlie the law and be accused thereof as the principal thief or reiver; and if he arrests and accuses him of the said theft or robbery and is found innocent thereof, the said complainer shall be held and obliged to give to the said man who he slanders innocently £10 for amends of the said slander.

Touching the crown of weight

Item, regarding the article making mention that the 'crown of the sun' is commonly refused within this realm, it wanting one grain of the weight, although the same has passage in other countries and especially in the realm of France, it weighing the 'crown of the king', therefore, it is thought expedient for the common good that no manner of person within this realm refuse to take the said crown of weight in payment or for change for other money after the form of the proclamation of his grace the king, supposing the same wants one grain only, under the pain to be called and accused as breakers of the said act of parliament. And because sundry persons having white silver will not change for gold, but take thereof 12d or more for exchange of the same, in high contempt of our sovereign lord and his authority, therefore it is statute and ordained that all manner of persons having white money, that they readily change all manner of gold contained in our sovereign lord's proclamation of the pieces contained in the same, without taking of any manner of money for that under the pain foresaid and to be accused as oppressors of our sovereign lord's lieges, and that no manner of man take upon hand to clip the crown of weight, or any other gold of weight, through pretence of this act, under the pain to be accused and punished as a forger of the money of his grace the king, according to the common law and statutes of the realm.

For staunching of dearth and prices of wine, salt and timber

Item, touching exorbitant dearth and prices of wine, salt and timber, it is statute and ordained that the provost, bailies and council of burghs where any ships or strangers arrive, or shall happen to arrive in time coming, laden with wine, salt or timber, convene with the merchants that own the said wines, salt and timber and buy or set a reasonable price upon the same, and that no manner of man, freeman or unfreeman, buy any of the said wine, salt or timber except from the said provost and bailies or owners thereof and at the prices set by them as is said, no man to buy until the king's grace first be served and his grace and officers being content for as much as it will please them to take to our sovereign lord's use only; that all noblemen of the realm such as prelates, barons and other gentlemen of the same be served at the same prices, and thereafter all and sundry our sovereign lord's lieges be served upon the said prices; and if any man comes in contrary thereof or forestalls the said wine, salt or timber, the same to be escheated to the king's grace; and if the provost, bailies and council are found negligent in the exercising of their offices, they are to lose the same and not to possess any office or honour for the space of three years thereafter; and if any freeman or other Scotsman dwelling in this realm brings home any wine, salt or timber upon their own adventure, that the provost and bailies of burghs, at the entering of the ships in the books of the town, review and consider their merchant bills and how the said wine, salt and timber was cost and sold, and similarly consider the merchants' expenses and freight, and thereafter set a reasonable price how the same may be sold, and as they decide, that the same be sold at the same price and no higher; and that the provost and bailies do diligence to enquire and get knowledge in due time of year how wine, salt and timber is sold and cost in other countries, that they may make the prices better corresponding to the quality of the goods.

For policy in Edinburgh

Item, touching the reparations and mending of the deformities within the town of Edinburgh, and especially where there are common passages and entry whereby all strangers and our sovereign lord's other lieges pass and repass, it is thought expedient and also it is ordained that the provost, bailies and council of Edinburgh give warning and charge all manner of the persons who have any lands, buildings and waste ground upon the west side of Leith Wynd that they, within a year and a day, honestly build and repair their said waste ground and ruinous houses, and that they begin to do the same within three months, and that they end the same within a year and a day, or else sell the same to others to be built within the said space, and to charge those who are known personally and others by open proclamation at the market cross of Edinburgh, with certification to them if they fail, the said provost and bailies shall cause the said lands, tenements and waste ground to be apprised and shall sell the same to anyone who will buy them and pay the prices thereof to the owners; and if no man will buy them, it shall be lawful to the said provost and bailies to cast down the said waste lands and with the stuff and stones thereof build an honest, substantious wall from the port of the Nether Bow to the Trinity College; and it shall not be lawful in time coming to any manner of person to pursue them or their successors thereof, or pretend any right or entry thereto, in time to come, neither for the principal land nor for annualrent owing furth thereof. And because the east side of the said wynd pertains to the abbot and convent of Holyroodhouse, it is ordained that the bailies of the Canongate cause the same to be done upon the said east side. And also because of the vileness that comes by the slaying of animals by the butchers dwelling on the east side and the emptying of entrails of beasts generating corruption, it is therefore ordained that the same be forbidden by the provost and bailies of Edinburgh and Canongate under the pain of confiscation of all such meat slain by them in the manner foresaid.

Regarding the meal market of Edinburgh

Item, because the market of meal and other victuals of the town of Edinburgh is common upon the High Street, to the sight of all manner of persons, strangers and others, and that a multitude of vile, dishonest and miserable creatures convene to the said market daily to get their sustentation and living, therefore, it is thought expedient that the said meat market be removed from the High Street to some honest, suitable and convenient place where the neighbours of the said town and the king's other lieges may convene for the selling and buying of such victuals in time to come.

The pains imposed on wrongful judges

Item, it is statute and ordained that, forasmuch as it has been heavily complained to our sovereign lord that his lieges have been greatly hurt in times bygone by judges, both spiritual and temporal, who have not been only judges but plain solicitors, partial counsellors, assisters and partakers with some of the parties, and have taken great gear and profit, therefore, it is statute and ordained that in time coming that all justices, sheriffs, lords of session, bailies of regalities, provost and bailies of burghs and their deputies, and all other judges, spiritual and temporal, as well within regalities and royalties, shall do true and equal justice to all our sovereign lord's lieges without any partial counsel, rewards or taking of bribes farther than is permitted of the law, under the pain of the loss of their honour, fame and dignity, if they be tainted and convicted of the same; and if any manner of person accuses any judge, temporal or spiritual, as well lords of session as others, and does not prove the same sufficiently, he shall be punished in the same manner and sort as the said judge or person about whom he complains, and shall pay a pain arbitral at the will of the king's grace or his council for the infaming of such persons, providing always if a spiritual man fails, that he be called before his judge ordinary.

Provision and pains of those committing fraud in alienation or otherwise

Item, for eschewing of inconveniences that often and at diverse times happen in this realm of the newly invented craft and falsehood committed and daily done by those who sell their lands or convey the same from a burdensome title that puts their bairns or other friends and person in state of the same before the date of the selling or giving thereof to others as is said, therefore, it is statute and ordained that whoever sells and conveys any lands or annualrents to any manner of person for any cause where warrandice may fall and puts others in a private state thereof, not by resignation in the hands of his grace the king, or by confirmation with precept passed out of the chancellery, or by plain resignation in the overlord's hands or confirmation of the overlord, and the person who happens to get their lands and possesses the same peacefully a year and a day by labouring, manuring and uptaking of the mails, profits and duties and so known heritable possessor thereof for a year and a day, the person or persons having private state and sasine of the said lands shall never be heard to claim the same against the second heritable possessor for any cause, but to pursue his interest against the principal giver and his heirs, and the person, seller or giver, to be called and declared infamous at the instance of his grace the king, and to be punished in his person and goods at the will of his grace the king; and if the overlord receives double resignations wittingly to the effect above-written, they to be punished similarly, and this act to be extended to those that make double assedations and double assignations.

Remedy against those that lie out and do not enter to their lands in fraud of the creditors

Item, regarding the remedy to be put to the fraud daily committed by the heritors of those who are dead and are owing great sums of money to sundry persons, their creditors, and the said heirs fraudulently delay and will not enter to their lands so that they may be distrenzied for the said debts in case they be not distrenziable in other movable goods, therefore, it is statute and ordained that letters shall be directed by deliverance of the lords of council and at the instance of any complainer to command and charge the said heritors, they being of perfect age, to enter to their lands, a year and a day being past after the death of their father or predecessors to whom they succeeded, to enter to the same with 40 days next after their charge, and failing thereof, letters shall be directed to the sheriff of the shire and his deputies to apprise the said land to the said creditors for the said debts, if they be liquid, which process of apprising shall have as great strength, force and effect as if the said heirs were entered thereto, and the said apprised lands to be held of the immediate superior thereof, providing always that it shall be lawful to the said heritors and their successors to redeem the said lands within seven years according to the act of parliament made thereupon of before and after the tenor thereof in all points.

Regarding the conduct of craftsmen

Item, because it is heavily rumoured that all craftsmen of this realm, and especially within burghs, used such extortion upon our sovereign lord's other lieges by reason of their crafts and of private acts and constitutions made amongst themselves, contrary to the common good and in great hurt, prejudice, damage and harm to all the lieges of this realm, therefore, it is statute and ordained that, in all times coming, it shall be lawful to all our sovereign lord's lieges who have any buildings or reparations to be made for the making of policy in this realm, either to burgh or to land, to choose good craftsmen, freemen or others as he thinks most expedient for the ordering, building and ending of all such works; and if any craftsmen begins the said work and delays to end the same, that the person who causes to build the said work or reparation foresaid is to choose and take others in their places as often as need be to complete and end the said work for the policy of the realm, and that no impediment be made to such craftsmen using their craft as is said by any other of the said craft within this realm under the pain of the loss of their freedom and breaking of the acts of parliament; and that the provost and bailies of all burghs take inquisition hereupon and put this act to execution in all points.

Regarding the burning of corns, raising of fire and ravishing of women

Item, it is statute and ordained that the committers of the crimes of fire-raising and ravishing of women be put under surety to the law, as with the crimes of slaughter and mutilation, and in the case of the failure to find surety, to denounce them rebels, as with slayers of men. And also because the burning of corn in barnyards is so great an offence against the common good that, therefore, respites or remissions shall never be given in time to come to any person who burns corn in stacks or barns, but that the committers thereof to be condemned to death or banished from the realm forever.

Of tallow

Item, forasmuch as it was statute and ordained of before that no tallow should be had out of the realm for the eschewing of dearth of the same, nonetheless the tallow is carried out in great quantity, which has raised excessive dearth in the country, putting the stone of tallow to double the price it was before or above; therefore, it is statute and ordained in this present parliament that no person or persons take upon hand in time to come to carry any tallow out of the realm under the pain of forfeiture of all their goods movable who come in contrary hereof, and that all customs officers at every port of the realm where ships are freighted appoint searchers to search and seek all ships, and where any tallow is shipped or brought to the ships to be carried out of the realm, to escheat the same, that is to say, the one half to their own use who apprehends the tallow and the other half to our sovereign lord's use; and that the customs officers make account yearly hereupon in the exchequer and also that they advertise our sovereign lord's treasurer of the owners of such tallow escheated so that he may bring in the rest of their goods movable to our sovereign lord's use for their contempt; and similarly, that no manner of man, butcher or others to burgh or to land take upon hand to rind, melt or barrel tallow under the pain of forfeiture of all their goods.

Regarding those that take places of bishops or abbots after their death

In the first, for the honour of God and the Holy Kirk, our sovereign lord, with the advice of the three estates, ordains that the freedom, liberties, privileges and immunities of the Holy Kirk and all spiritual persons be observed and kept in honour, worship and dignity for the time of our sovereign lord that now is, as has been in the time of his most noble progenitors of good mind of before, with this addition: that forasmuch as when prelacies, such as bishoprics or abbacies, happen to become vacant, the nomination thereof pertains to our sovereign lord and the provision of the same to our holy father Pope [Paul III], nevertheless, ill-disposed persons in troubled times have put hands on and taken bishops' castles, palaces and fortalices by their own hand, by their own authority and without our sovereign lord's consent, command or letters at times when bishoprics are vacant and at other times, and similarly enter abbeys and take them and put the same in keeping in secular men's hands without the consent, command or letters of the king's grace and also without the command, advice or desire of the convents of such abbeys, to the displeasure of God almighty, our holy father the pope and in contempt of our sovereign lord's authority, through which the kirk and kirkmen are heavily hurt and damaged; therefore, it is statute and ordained in this present parliament that whomsoever person or persons in any time to come take any bishop's palaces, castles or strongholds, or enter in abbeys by their own authority, to hold these places without our sovereign lord's command, letters or charges or desire of the convents thereof at times when such bishoprics or abbacies are vacant, or any other time, they being not vacant, without the king's authority, they shall incur the crime of treason and lese-majesty and shall be called thereof at the king's pleasure upon their forfeiture, and to the loss of their lives, lands, heritage, goods, movable and immovable, honour and offices because the king's grace is held and bound to defend the Holy Kirk and kirkmen in their just causes.

Our sovereign lord, with the advice of his three estates in this present parliament, understanding that in the parliament held at Edinburgh, 12 August 1522, after the forfeiture of the late Alexander [Home], lord Home, George [Home], now lord Home, brother german to the said late Alexander, by our said sovereign lord and his three estates and John [Stewart], duke of Albany, his tutor and governor for the time, was reintegrated, restored and ordained to be heritably infeft in all and sundry lands, rents, heritage, tacks, steadings and offices which pertained to the said late Alexander and came into the hands of his grace by reason of the said forfeiture, and letters ordained to be directed thereupon to all persons to whom the lands, heritage, tacks, steadings, rents and offices were conveyed and to all possessors thereof to resign the same in favour of the said lord, and where any lands were held of other overlords, the said lord and his heirs, with consent foresaid, were ordained to be presented as heritable tenants to them in the same and heritably infeft therein, and then his grace, after his perfect age of 25 years complete and general revocation, made and gave to the said lord a new infeftment of all the foresaid lands, as the said act of parliament and new infeftment made to the said lord thereupon bears. Therefore, his highness, with the advice and consent of his said three estates, ratifies, approves and, for his grace and his successors, perpetually confirms the said act of the date foresaid and letters passed thereupon, together with the said new infeftment, and in so far as any letters have been directed upon the said act in times bypast and not obeyed, his highness as yet wills that the same stand in strength and have effect, now as then and then as now, without prejudice of all men's rights and defences, and new letters to be directed to the effect foresaid, if need be, against the persons disobeying the same, notwithstanding any gift or presentation made to any person or persons of the said lands or any part thereof in his grace's less-age, which his highness has also revoked for good cause, as his special revocation made thereupon bears, which revocation our said sovereign lord, with the advice foresaid, ratifies and approves in all points; and also voids the said forfeiture by this act, except the lands of tynes, until his grace be further advised, and ordains the same to be enacted and inserted in his grace's books of parliament and to have the strength of an act thereof, with executorials to be raised thereupon in form as is appropriate. Subscribed by our sovereign lord at Edinburgh, 12 March 1540 [1541]. James

Our sovereign lord, knowing he and his successors to be greatly hurt in his minority and less-age in the giving of his letters of regress to Richard Maitland of Lethington, his heirs and assignees, to redeem the lands of Thirlestane from Alexander Forrester of Corstorphine, his heirs, assignees and successors, because, by the giving thereof, he and his successors are secluded perpetually from the marriage of the said Alexander's heirs and successors by reason that they have no other lands held of him immediately by service of ward and relief, and albeit the same is fallen under his general revocation made by him in his last parliament, nevertheless, for the more special declaration of his mind in that behalf, his grace, by the tenor hereof, revokes, voids and annuls the said letters of regress with all that followed or may follow thereupon, and discerns the effect thereof to cease in time coming and never to have strength in judgement nor without, and ordains [James Foulis of Colinton], his clerk register, to insert this, his grace's present revocation and annulation in the book of this his present parliament and the authentic copy thereof to be given to the said Alexander under the testimonial of grace's great seal, and this present writing and precept to be sufficient warrant to him.
