A.D. 1175. THE SCOTS SWEAB FEALTY TO EENEY. 401 have pledged their word that with good faith and without evil intent, and with no excuse whatever, they will cause the bishops and barons and other men of their land who were not present when the king of Scotland made this treaty with our lord the king, to make the same allegiance and fealty to our lord the king and to his son Henry, which they themselves have made, and, like the barons and men who were here present, to deliver as hostages to our lord the king whomsoever he shall think fit. " Further, the bishops, earls, and barons have agreed with our lord the king and his son Henry,-that if the king of Scotland, by any chance, shall withdraw from his fealty to our lord the king and to his son, and from the aforesaid covenants, in such ease they will hold with our lord the king, as with their liege lord, against the king of Scotland, and against all men at enmity with the king; and they will place the dominions of the king of Scotland under interdict, until he shall return to his fealty to our lord the king. "That the covenants aforesaid shall he strictly observed, and in good faith, and without evil intent, by William, king of Scotland and David his brother, and by his barons abovenamed, and their heirs, the king of Scotland himself, and David his brother, and all his said barons, have pledged themselves as liegemen of our lord the king against all men, as also of his son Henry, saving their fealty to his father ; the following being witnesses hereto : Eichard, bishop of Avranches, John, dean of Salisbury, Robert, abbat of Malmesbury, Ralph, abbat of Mundeburg, Herbert, archdeacon of Northampton, Walter de Coutances, Roger, the king's chaplain, Osbert, clerk of the chamber, Richard, son of our lord the king, earl of Poitou, Geoffrey, son of our lord the king, earl of Brittany, William, %arl of Essex, Hugh, earl of Chester, Richard de Humezt, constable and earl of Mellent, Jordan Thessun, Humphrey de Bohun, William de Courcy, seneschal, and Gilbert Malet, seneschal of Falaise." The aforesaid having been recited in the church of Saint Peter, at York, in the presence of the before-named kings of England [and Scotland],6 5 and of David, brother of the king of Scotland, and of the whole of the people, the bishops, earls, barons, and knights of the territories of the king of Scotland, 6 5 This word is not in the text, but is clearly omitted by mistake.
