This week – 31 May 1305

On this date, one of several inquisitions concerning the barony of Crail was taken at Perth before John, earl of Atholl, and John de Sandale, chamberlain of Scotland, by named jurors, who found that Alexander II had given to Richard de Beaumont, ancestor of Isabella de Vescy, the barony of Crail. Richard had pledged the manor to Walter Stewart, who advanced him money for his journey to the Holy Land and ‘enjoyed the cain peacefully while he held the barony’. After Richard’s and Walter’s deaths, the barony fell to Alexander III and then to John Balliol, who gave the barony to Isabella as heir of Richard.
