This week – 4 March 1314

John Balliol, calling himself King of Scots, withdrew a suit against Edward II, king of England and count of Ponthieu. The suit began in September 1312 after John had erected some dams on property in Ponthieu, for which the steward of Ponthieu, on behalf of the king of England, complained and filed suit. After several delays, John withdrew the suit in favour of a fine of £8. This was the last known act of John Balliol as he died later that year.
