Mary Queen of Scots

Remission to Scottish nobles who took part in the Battle of Langside

Period:
16th Century
Description:
Remission under the great seal to Robert, Lord Boyd, Thomas Master of Boyd, and others for their participation in the battle of Langside.  Although this document is forgiving these nobles for their part in the Battle, due to their support on the field, Mary Queen of Scots awarded the Boyds their lands and titles back which had been confiscated by the crown a century earlier for treason.
