*I would like to acknowledge the debt this work owes to Amanda Beam’s The Balliol Dynasty, 1210-1364 (Edinburgh, 2008), in particular her Appendix D, ‘Selected Documents for Edward Balliol’, which lists 91 documents related to Edward’s life, both acting as king and the periods before and after his kingship. This calendar should be consulted alongside Beam’s Appendix, which includes a large number of ‘lost acts’ of Edward Balliol as king, as well as some acts as king which are non-Scottish and thus are outwith the parameters of the People of Medieval Scotland database. For a list of these documents which were not included in PoMS, see below, under the calendar. - MH
