The acts of Robert I, second series.

Compiled by Matthew Hammond, 2018.

Note on dating: The enrolled documents which included a date of time were noted by A.A.M. Duncan in notes interspersed with the main run of numbered documents in RRS, v. These have been entered into the PoMS database as part of the first series of Robert I documents, which have been H-numbered chronologically. The following enrolled documents were not noted by Duncan precisely because the date of time was not copied. These have been given H-numbers based on their order in the rolls. The majority of these have been dated as between the inauguration of Robert I on 25 March 1306 and his death on 7 June 1329. The king issued very few dispositive documents before his victory at Bannockburn on 24 June 1314 and subsequent political stabilization of the kingdom. Therefore, most of the documents below are dated as ‘probably after 24 June 1314’. Occasionally, there are details given in the texts of the documents which allow a narrower date range, and here I am following Duncan’s notes in his indexed table of enrolled documents, RRS, v, 702-35. The index and roll references can also be found there.
