Know that I have agreed and confirmed by this present charter to God and to the church of Saint Mary of Stanleye park and to the canons of the Premonstratensian Order in the same place who serve God one piece of cultivated arable land with a meadow lying next to the field of Hilton-upon-Beystern, lying next to the land of the aforesaid Canons in free and everlasting alms, which clearly they have from the gift of Ralph, son of Nicholas, just as is contained in the charter which they have of the same Ralph de Hilton and which once he held from my father with free right of entry and exit and with all considerations within the town and outside the said land, to have and to hold to the aforesaid Canons from me and my heirs or assigns freely in perpetuity, quietly and peacefully, by rendering thereafter annually to me and my heirs or assigns one pound of pepper at the Derby market, namely at the feast of Saint James, for secular service charge and demand of the court of law pertaining to the aforesaid land. Therefore for this grant and confirmation of the charter, the aforesaid canons have given me twenty shillings of silver.
