Actually, no, it wasn't a typo.  I checked it against Douglas Gray's
anthology of Late Medieval Verse and Prose.

By the way, David Lindley contacted me off-list, and later wrote:

Does anyone know why this is possible?  Did the Stuarts keep a separate
count for their own family and for the crowned heads of Scotland?
Someone on this list is bound to know more about the subject than either
of us!
