With the agreement of his chapter, Rogerius de Molinis sancte domus Hospitalis pauperum Christi minister leases under seal to Bisansonus the houses in Acre that Petrus Bertasia used to hold for the census of 29 besants, payable annually to the Hospital in Acre at Michaelmas. The houses are bounded by the house of Maria de Caypha, the house of the sons of the late Paganottus, the curia of Maria Bubala and the public way. Bisansonus will pay the rent of 29 besants on the same terms. He can sell, pledge or alienate the properties, except to knights [viri militares] and professed religious, but the Hospital will have preemption rights.

It is recorded that Bisansonus, with the agreement of Rogerius de Molinis magister Hospitalis and his chapter and also of the iudices of the royal court [regale curia] bought the houses, which had been pledged to him by Petrus Bertasia, for 223 besants on the death of Petrus, retaining the money as a repayment of the debt. This was agreed by the wife of Petrus Bertasia, who came with her children to the royal court. This was witnessed in the curia regis in Acre by Gilibertus de Florio vicecomes Acconensis; and by the jurati regis, Guillelmus de Furchis; Rainaldus de Trechis; Antelmus Lucensis; Raimundus Camerarius; Bernardus de Templo; Odo de Conchis.
