Egidii and his wife Odula state that, with the agreement of Rohardus and his wife domina Gilla, from whom they held the feudum, and with the confirmation of King Fulk, Queen Melisende and Patriarch William, they had leased the land [of Emaus] to Raimundus magister and the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem, on condition that Raimundus and the Hospitallers gave them 500 besants a year, half payable at Easter and half on the Feast of All Saints, as recorded in charters issued by the king of Jerusalem and the patriarch. But now, in changed circumstances, Raimundus magister and the brothers of his chapter have agreed to a modification of terms requested by Rotbertus and Odula. The rent will in future by paid annually in 3 instalments: 200 besants at Easter, 100 on the Feast of St John the Baptist, 100 on the Feast of All Saints and 100 at Christmas. If the rent is not forthcoming for 40 days Robert and Odula can reoccupy the land until the rent is paid. Their lord Rohardus and his wife Gilla agree as an eleemosynary grant that up to 100 besants can be sold to, exchanged with or given to the Hospital. Should the family of Rotbertus fail and the feudum revert to its lord, the Hospital will be bound solely to pay a rent of 400 besants a year.

text: Feb. 1.  Margat. Bertrandus Margati dominus, the son of dominus Reinaldus, quondam ejusdem castelli dominus, with the agreement Prince Bohemond III of Antioch, Count Raymond III of Tripoli and his wife domina Bermunda, with the advice and at the instigation of dominus Anterius Valenie episcopus, and with the agreement of all his men [homines], both milites and burgenses, having ius, feudum or hereditas in the territory, makes a sealed and masked eleemosynary grant for the support of the poor in the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem, represented by dominus Rogerius de Molins, eiusdem domus magister. He gives the castle [castrum] called Margat with all its lands and rights, including his dominationes and ligiantiae. In return, the magister, his successors and brothers will pay Bertrandus and his legitimate heirs 2200 Saracen besants each year, payable in the city of Tripoli by the castellan [castellanus] of Cractum in 4 instalments, namely 550 besants each at Easter, the Nativity of St John the Baptist, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross and Christmas. If Bertrandus should die without legitimate heirs, the Hospital will pay Bermunda, or another legitimate wife, 1200 besants each year, retaining the balance of 1000 besants as an alms gift. If on the death of Bertrandus there are heirs, the rent should be divided, with 1100 going to his wife for her lifetime and 1100 to his heirs. The 2200 Saracen besants will thereafter go totally to the heirs, but if the line should fail, the rent will revert as an alms-gift to the Hospital.
