Regarding tacks and pensions given out of thirds

Item, it is statute and ordained that all tacks and assedations set in diminution of the rental or first assumption and pensions made and given to any person in any time bygone or in time hereafter of the thirds of the benefices, or any part thereof, are and have been from the beginning null and of no value, and that it shall not be permissible to his highness in any time coming to give and convey the same in any manner of way.
