Letter: TNA (not DL) SC 1/2/166

Description (from Prosopography of Medieval Scotland)

Hugh de Bolebec writes to King Henry III of England, informing him that he went in person to Redden Burn (in Sprouston parish, ROX), with kinghts of Northumberland, and met there David of Lindsey, justiciar of Lothian, Patrick, earl of Dunbar, and many other knights sent by the king of Scotland. Six knights were chosen from each side to make the perambulation between England and Scotland, between Carham (Northumb.) and Hadden (ROX). The English and Scottish knights disagreed on the true border. Hugh, the justiciar and the earl decided to choose an additional six charters on either side, who also disagreed on the boundaries. According to King Henry’s mandate, Hugh then chose 24 knights of his county (of Northumberland), who made a declaration on oath that the stated bounds were the true and ancient bounds between the two kingdoms. The justiciar and earl resisted them by force from making the perambulation.
