To the bishops of Valva and Clonmacnoise and the prior of Chillichanei in the diocese of Meath. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Rory Macmurchertaidh, priest, of the diocese of Ardagh, contained that, after Martin V's confirmation of, and reservation to himself and his successors of absolution from, all sentences etc. of his predecessors against simoniacs; and that, after Bernard Macmurchertaidh, then official of Ardagh, proceeding to execute certain letters of the present pope [see Cal. Lett. VIII, p. 420], had by a definitive sentence, which became a res judicata, deprived the late Andrew Ochaassy of the rectory of St. Mary's, Lochssyddi alias Ballymore (Villamagna) in the diocese of Meath, and had collated and assigned it, thus void, to the said Rory, the latter, fearing the power of the said Andrew and his adherents, consented that the fruits etc. should be divided into two parts, one for himself, the other for Andrew, who received the same till his death; that subsequently Rory gave to William, bishop of Meath, some cows, in order that the bishop might collate and assign to him by his ordinary authority the said rectory de novo, thereby incurring the said sentences; and that the said bishop made to him collation and provision, under pretext of which [two] collations and provisions Rory obtained and still detains the said rectory. Seeing that the collation and provision by the said bishop do not hold good, and seeing that some doubt the force of the collation and provision by the said official; seeing also that the said rectory is, as the pope has learned, still void by the said deprivation, the pope orders the above, after the said Rory (who was lately dispensed by papal authority, as the son of unmarried parents related in the triple third and in the fourth degrees of kindred, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, after which he was so promoted and obtained the said rectory, as above) has resigned the said rectory to them, to absolve him from all sentences etc. incurred, enjoining penance, and rehabilitate him, and in that event to collate and assign to him the said rectory, value not exceeding 60 marks sterling, whether it be void as above, or by the death of the said Andrew or of John Ichaassy, or by the resignation of John Ichynan, priest, of the said diocese of Meath, or in any other way. Rory is hereby specially dispensed, on account of the said defect, to hold it. Solet copiosa. (B. and G. Gonne. | B. xviii. Residuum gratis pro deo. Duodecimo Kal. Augusti Anno Decimo. Valven.)

The petition of Simon Sellere, master or warden, and the chaplains of the church, called the chapel, of St. James of the town of Sutton in Hoboernes (rectius Holdernes), in the diocese of York, contained that although the right of burying the bodies of all the inhabitants of the said town of Sutton and of the towns of Staneffery and Lopholme in the said place, who elect to be buried at the said church, and of children (impuberum), and the oblations etc. arising therefrom, lawfully belong to the said master or warden and chaplains, who have been in peaceable possession thereof from the time of the foundation of the said church, nevertheless the late Robert Thyas, perpetual vicar of Wagen in the said place, asserting that all the bodies of the inhabitants of the said towns, which are within the bounds of the said parish, not electing to be buried elsewhere, and of children, save the bodies of the said master or warden and chaplains, lawfully come for burial in the said parish church and its cemetery, and alleging that (under pretext of a certain amicable composition or concord made, as he asserted, between him and the late Robert Merflete, then master or warden, and the said chaplains, about the right of burying the bodies of the said inhabitants in the said church of St. James and its cemetery, and of taking the oblations etc. arising therefrom) the right of burying the bodies of the said inhabitants, and of taking the oblations etc. arising therefrom belonged to him, brought the said Robert [Merflete], master or warden, and chaplains (as burying in the said church of St. James and its cemetery, without leave of the said Robert de Thyas, a number of the bodies of the said inhabitants, even children, and not consigning to him the oblations etc.) before the official of York, not by papal delegation, for the purpose of obtaining a declaration that the right of burying bodies in the said church of St. James and its cemetery, save only the bodies of the said master or warden and chaplains, and of taking the oblations etc. arising therefrom, had lawfully belonged and did belong to the said Robert de Thyas by reason of the said parish church, and that the burials of the said bodies in the said church of St. James and its cemetery, after and against the said concord, had been and were abusive (temerarias), and that therefore the bones ought to be exhumed and conveyed to him and the said parish church, with the oblations etc., and that the said Robert, warden or master, should be compelled to pay to him the said oblations etc.; that the said official promulgated a definitive sentence against the said master or warden and chaplains, from which they appealed to the apostolic see; that the present pope, at the instance of the said Robert Merflete and chaplains, committed the cause of the appeal to Anthony [de Sancto Vito (fn. 2) , now] bishop of Urbino, then a papal chaplain and auditor, who (after Robert [de] Thyas, under pretext of the said sentence, had taken the said oblations and had resigned the said vicarage, and after Robert Merflete had died, and after both Simon Merflete and the above Simon Sellere, who had obtained the [perpetual vicarage of the] said parish church and mastership or wardenship respectively, had entered upon the said cause, (fn. 3) and after the said Simon Merflete had in many ways molested etc. the said Simon Sellere and chaplains) pronounced by a definitive sentence the proceedings etc. of the said official bad, revoked his said sentence, [pronounced] the appeal of the said Simon Sellere and chaplains good, and imposed perpetual silence on the said Simon Merflete, condemning him in the costs, etc.; that Simon Merflete's appeal from the sentence of the said Anthony was committed by the pope to Master Francis de Cruylles, a papal chaplain and auditor, who by a definitive sentence decreed the proceedings of the said Anthony good and confirmed his said sentence, condemning Simon Merflete in the costs in the cause before himself; that Simon Merflete's appeal from the sentence of Master Francis was committed by the pope to Baptista [de Romanis, now] elect of Chieti (Theatin.), then a papal chaplain and auditor, who by a definitive sentence pronounced the proceedings of Master Francis good, except his condemnation of the said Simon Marflete (sic) in costs, confirmed his said sentence and pronounced Simon Merflete's appeal bad, condemning him in the costs in the cause before himself, the said Baptista, elect (who had been meanwhile promoted by the pope to the said see), subsequently taxing the costs incurred before the said Anthony [now] bishop, Francis and himself at 130 gold florins of the camera. Seeing that, as the said petition added, the said Simon Sellere and chaplains doubt whether the said Simon Merflete will obey the sentences of the said bishop, elect and Francis, and the proceedings to be taken in vigour of these presents, the pope orders the above to execute and publish the said sentences, cause the said Simon Sellere and chaplains to have peaceable enjoyment of the said right, and satisfaction to be made to them in respect of the said costs, invoking the aid of the secular arm etc. Exhibita nobis.

To John [de Mella], (fn. 4) bishop of Zamora, residing in the Roman court. Mandate to collate and assign to Theoderic de Oudencoep, canon of the church of Soutmallyng in the diocese of Chichester, an abbreviator of apostolic letters and a continual commensal member of the household of Francis, cardinal priest of St. Clement's, vice-chancellor of the Roman church, the canonry and prebend of the cathedral (majoris) church of Utrecht, value not exceeding 16 marks of silver, which became void by the death of Henry Honberch, who was also an abbreviator, and about which there has been litigation in the Roman court since the cause (which began between two claimants named) was committed by Martin V, and on his death by the present pope, to the above John, then a papal chaplain and auditor. On the voidance, as the above Theoderic believed, by the death, in possession of the said canonry and prebend, of one of the said two claimants, the above Theoderic, who was also ignorant of the said suit, accepted and caused provision to be made to him of the same, by vigour of letters by which the present pope lately made provision to him of a canonry of the said cathedral church, and another of the church of St. Mary, Utrecht, with reservation of as many prebends and of a dignity etc. of one of them, whence arose a further cause between Theoderic and a third party [named], which the pope committed likewise to the above John, who had been then promoted to the church of Leon (fn. 5) and was residing in the said court, and who continued to proceed, short of a conclusion, even after his translation from Leon to Zamora (fn. 6) and his consecration. The collation is to be made notwithstanding that Theoderic holds [a canonry and prebend] of Soutmalling, value not exceeding 20 marks sterling, and that he lately, by vigour of the pope's said other letters, accepted and got provision made to him of another [canonry and prebend] of the said cathedral church, value likewise not exceeding 16 marks of silver (which he is to resign upon obtaining the above canonry and prebend of the same church) and a [canonry and prebend] of the said church of St. Mary, Utrecht, value not exceeding 15 marks of silver, etc. Vite etc. (An. and Ja. Petri. | An. Gratis pro familiari domini vicecancellarii, Octavo Kal. Decembris Anno Decimo. de Adria.) [5¼ pp. See Cal. Lett. VIII, pp. 392, 575 and above, p. 120.]

To the bishops of St. Andrew and Aquila, and Alexander [Lauder], elect of Dunkeld. Mandate as below. The petition of William de Elphi[n]stone, rector of Ecclesmauchane in the diocese of St. Andrews, contained that although by vigour of papal letters he formerly accepted within the lawful time and had provision made to him of the said church on its voidance by the death of John de Heton, nevertheless Patrick de Sandelandis and Alan de Borthwyk, clerks, of the said diocese, claiming the said church, prevented the said provision from taking effect, Patrick taking possession, which he still unduly detains, and both he and Alan in many ways molesting the said William; that the cause which arose, lawfully introduced to the Roman court by William's appeal, was committed by the present pope, at William's instance, to Baptista [de Romanis], elect of Chicti, holding the place of an auditor of causes of the apostolic palace, who by a definitive sentence declared the said grace, acceptance and provision and their consequences to have been and to be canonical, the said church to have belonged and to belong to William, adjudged it to him, removed Patrick and Alan, inducted William, imposed perpetual silence on Patrick and Alan, and condemned Patrick in fruits taken, and him and Alan in the costs, which last he afterwards taxed at 28 gold florins of the camera. Seeing that, as the said petition added, the said William doubts whether, whilst the cause has been pending, others have intruded themselves or may do so, the pope orders the above to execute the said sentence, inducting William and removing the said Patrick, and causing satisfaction to be made to William in respect of the said fruits and costs, and moreover to execute the same even against such intruders, as far only as regards giving possession of the said church to William, invoking the aid of the secular arm, etc. Exhibita nobis.

To the bishops of Valva, Cork and Lismore. Mandate as below. The petition of Henry Burnham (fn. 7) , rector of the parish church called the plebania of Dongarvan in the diocese of Lismore, contained that although the said church, which is of the patronage of laymen, and which had been so long void by the death of Maurice Ocogereyn that its collation had lapsed to the apostolic see, was lawfully due to him by vigour of letters granted to him by Martin V, by which provision thereof was ordered to be made to him, and by which he was dispensed to hold therewith for life the archdeaconry of Lismore, a non-major dignity, and to resign them, as often as he pleased, nevertheless the Augustinian abbot and convent of St. Mary's, Keynsham, in the diocese of Bath and Wells, falsely asserting that the said church was united to the said monastery, opposed and prevented, as they still do, the said grant from having effect, and took possession; that Henry brought them before Richard [Ankel], (fn. 8) bishop of Lismore, who promulgated a definitive sentence in his favour; that the present pope committed, at the abbot and convent's instance, their appeal to the apostolic see to Ralph [Rolland, (fn. 9) now] bishop of Tréguier, then a papal chaplain and auditor, who revoked the said sentence by an unjust definitive sentence, from which Henry appealed to the said see; that the pope, at Henry's instance, committed his appeal to John [de Mella (fn. 10) , now] elect of Leon, then a papal chaplain and auditor, who promulgated two definitive sentences, one by which the proceedings of the said Ralph, and another by which the proceedings of the said bishop Richard, were pronounced null, from the second of which Henry appealed to the said see; that the pope, with consent of the proctors of both parties, gave commission to the said elect to reject the causes of the said nullity, and to hear and terminate the principal cause; that after the said bishop Richard (fn. 11) had proceeded short of a conclusion, upon the chancellorship of Limerick, a non-major dignity (which Jordan (fn. 12) , [now] bishop of Cork, held at the time (fn. 13) of his promotion, made by the pope's said predecessor (fn. 14) , to the united churches of Cork and Cloyne) becoming void by the resignation to John [Mothel], (fn. 15) bishop of Limerick, of the said Jordan, who was within the canonical time for consecration, the said bishop John made collation and provision thereof by his ordinary authority to the said Henry, who, resigning the said archdeaconry, obtained possession of the said chancellorship under pretext of the said collation and provision and detained for some time it and the said rectory (of which he had taken possession in force of execution of the sentence of the said bishop Richard, which was said to have become a res judicata) without obtaining any other canonical dispensation; and that the present pope has by other letters rehabilitated Henry, requiring him to resign the said rectory and chancellorship. Seeing that all the right which Henry possessed in or to the said rectory at the time of the said obtaining [of the chancellorship] became void thereby, the pope by other letters [above pp. 52, 53] ordered the said elect to surrogate Henry, after he resigned the said chancellorship and rectory, in and to the said right, and to collate and assign it to him, and moreover to collate and assign to him the rectory itself, which elect has by a definitive sentence pronounced the said mandate to surrogate Henry and its consequences to have been and to be canonical, the said rectory to have belonged and to belong to him, adjudged it to him, pronounced the said abbot and convent to have had and to have no right in or to it, inducted Henry into corporal possession, imposed perpetual silence on the abbot and convent, and condemned them in the costs of the cause before him, which he subsequently taxed at 50 gold florins of the camera. The said petition adding that Henry doubts ... secular arm etc. as above, f. 108d, mutatis mutandis. Exhibita nobis. (An. and Jo. de Reate. | An. xxiiii. de Adria.)

Lett. VIII) in that diocese on its voidance by the death of William Ramsay, the said Laurence (by vigour of letters by which the present pope made provision to him of a canonry with reservation of a prebend and dignity etc. of Glasgow, and of a benefice with or without cure in the gift of the bishop and the prior and chapter etc. of St. Andrews) and the said Robert (by vigour of other letters by which the pope granted a faculty to Anthony, bishop of Urbino, sent by the pope as nuncio to Scotland, to reserve to his gift, and to make collation and provision to twelve clerks of his choice, of as many benefices, with or without cure, one in each diocese of the realm, etc. [see Cal.

Seeing that the said Robert de Lytcow, in order to avoid the cost of protracted litigation, proposes, in accordance with an agreement made between him and the said Laurence. to give up the suit and all right in or to the said church, the pope (who intends this day to restore the said faculty, as far as it concerns Robert, and the said nomination and reservation, to the state in which they were before the said acceptance by Robert de Lytcow and the said provision made to him, and to restore the said Robert de Lytcow to the said faculty [see above, p. 126]), at the petition of the said Robert de Lytchow (fn. 21) , and lest a fresh adversary be surrogated to the said Laurence, and lest Robert be too great a loser by the proposed cession, orders the above abbot to receive and admit from Robert or his proctor his said proposed cession, and in that event to surrogate Laurence in and to all right which Robert de Lytchow possessed in or to the said church at the time of such cession. and to collate and assign to him the said right etc., and moreover to collate and assign to him the said church itself, value not exceeding 40l. sterling; whether it become void by the said cession, or be void by the death of the said William Ramsay, or be void in any other way.
