James Ayton of Kippo leased his mill to James Bruce, along with the right to mill grain produced on surrounding properties that were possessed by tenants. While the lease to Bruce was still in effect, Ayton took back the land that had been leased to tenants and stopped taking that land’s produce to the mill. Bruce claimed that he should receive a corresponding abatement of his rent.
