Crown Charter of 1511

The estate of Lewis had been forfeited in 1506 because Torcall, chief at that time, had strongly supported a bid to revive the Lordship of the Isles. A Crown charter of 1511, granted by James IV, restored the lands of Lewis to the MacLeods. However, the estate was not restored to Torcall, but to his younger brother, Calum MacLeod. The Latin charter, and its translation, is as given by Richard Sharpe, Documents and Sources, p. 64:

Apud Edinburgh, 29 Jun.
