Sale of Land Rents by John Gaufride to Robert Donaldson, 1462 (Back)

In this document dated 17 July 1462, various itemised annual rents are sold by Inverness burgess, John Gaufride, to his neighbour, Robert Donald [Donaldson]. Fraser-Mackintosh dates this document to 17 July 1462, but it appears to be endorsed on the reverse, 7 July 1462.

The image shows the back of the document.

In his 1875 publication, 'Invernessiana: Contributions Toward a History of the Town and Parish of Inverness, from 1160 to 1599' (pp 141-142), Charles Fraser-Mackintosh translates and paraphrases the original Latin document thus:

[For a glossary of some of the terms used in the Inverness burgh documents please follow the link towards the foot of this page]

"In testimony of which things, in the absence of my own seal, I have procured and caused to be appended to my present charter the seal of the honourable and discreet man Hugh Clerk, one of the bailies of said burgh, before these witnesses - viz., Donald Jonson Makinclerych, John Graunt, Mauruce Donaldson, burgesses of said burgh, and many others. At said burgh of Inverness, in the year of the Lord 1462, and the 17th day of the month of July."
