(4). An agreement with the daughters of Pontius Faverius and their husbands. They exchange 30 jugera of cultivated land in the territory of Kalandria, owing decima et terraticum, for 2 petiae of a vineyard in valle Sancte Marie, one of 4 jugera, the other of 2 jugera, which had belonged to frater Petrus de Rametis, for which they will give tertia et decima.

An agreement with the hospitale at Mahumeria in which the hospitale exchanges part of a garden that stretches between the berquilia of the Holy Sepulchre and the hospitale for 2 jugera of the vineyard that had belonged to frater Stephanus Ortalis. Tithe will be owed for this. (8). Frater Robertus Porcarius gave himself and all his possessions to the Holy Sepulchre [on becoming a confrater]. This was confirmed at Mahumeria by domnus A. prior, assisted by the burgenses of the village [villa] in plenarie curie, to whom Robertus handed a staff [baculum], giving everything to the Holy Sepulchre. Robertus enumerated his possessions, specifying land next to that of Robertus Ungarus, which had been given by Prior Giraldus to him and his wife, previously married to Umbertus, but which he had abandoned because he had not been able to cultivate it; some adjoining land given by Prior Petrus, who later became archbishop of Tyre, to Robertus in an exchange for land he had bought from Galterius Bela; and land nearby which Prior P. had given and on which was owed terraticum et decimam. (9). Prior Arnaldus and domnus Robertus de Retest came to Mahumeria and agreed on the boundaries of their respective territories. They chose an elderly Sarracenus called Pes Tortus, a homo rusticus of Robertus, to provide evidence of the boundary. This survey took place in the presence of the following canons of the Holy Sepulchre: domnus Petrus elemosinarius; domnus Bernardus Antiochenus; frater Pisanus; Petrus Judaeus; Johannes interpres; Arbertus; Stephanus. The son of the aforesaid Robertus [de Retest] was also present.

text: Apr. 20. Acre. Iacobus de Amigdala records under seal that he has come to an agreement with the magister and convent of the Hospital of St Mary of the Germans. He accepts an annual rent of 6400 Saracen besants, which the emperor Frederick, king of Jerusalem and Sicily, gave the Order, in exchange for his feudum, which came to him by legitimate succession through his mother, the daughter of comes Iozcelinus. Among the casalia in his fief is Mobilir, given to him in exchange for Trefile and castrum novum, called Montfort, which the Order is now fortifying, and for a garden and a mill that are dependencies of Trefile. Other casalia are: Ialim, Tharbucha, Tarbosta, Suru, Beauer, Camesru, Tetramme, Fennes, Tersias, Ianot/Ianoth with a dependent gastina called Hemelie, Getz, Cabbara with a gastina called Camesie, Iunite, Blutun and Castrum Regis. Excluded from the sale are those possessions the Order held at Castrum Regis before they acquired the lordship and everything it bought or received in eleemosynary grants. Iacobus and his heirs will receive the rent from the revenues of the cathena and funda of Acre, payable in 4 instalments of 1600 besants. If the rent should fail magister Hermannus and his successors and the Order are held to pay Iacobus and his heirs 3200 Saracen besants within 6 months or they will restore the entire feudum to Iacobus, except for the castle of Montfort, because the site was given in exchange for Mobilie. This agreement will be enforced by the High Court [curia regis]. If the 3200 besants are not paid within 20 days tthe Order will pledge the casalia of Erchat, Saphet and Ancre. If at the end of six months the debt is still not paid, Iacobus and his heirs can dispose of these 3 casalia as they wish.
