We find that the common lane leading to his Maj's. walls hath been used, time beyond memory of man, where the middle door of the stone house builded by John Creaugh, dec., is placed, and so through directly between the said John's both tatched messuages to the stairs on the said walls, and we find that the said John Creaughe hath obstructed and built upon the said lane, so as his Maj's. subjects ~annot have egresse or regresse between the said lane as they were accustomed. .And we find that the said lane should be five feet from one end to another.
