On 3 July 1364 King David II. confirmed a charter by Thomas, Earl of Mar, to John de Forbes of the lands of Edinbanchory and Craiglogy. On 15 November 1374 another charter was granted in confirmation of tbe same lands. In the same year he was acting as Sheriff of Aberdeen in place of Alexander Fraser of Philorth. On 18 July 1378 he had a charter from the Bishop of Moray to him and to Margaret his wife of the lands of Fynrossie on the loch of Spynie. He died before 20 August 1387, and was described as ' a gude man, wise, mychty, and manly in his tyme.' He was succeeded by his son, Sir John De Forbes, knight."
