A.D. 1189. CHAETEE OF THE KING OF ENGLAND. 131 The Charter of the Icing of England as to tJie liberties granted him to William, king of Scotland. " Richard, by the grace of God, king of England, duke of Normandy and Aquitaine, and earl of Anjou, to the archbishops, bishops, abbats, earls, barons, justices, and sheriffs', and all his servants and faithful people throughout the whole of England, greeting. Know ye that we have restored to our most dearly-beloved cousin William, by the same grace king of the Scots, his castles of Roxburgh and Berwick, to be held by him and his heirs for ever as his own of hereditary right.
