Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Latin: 1441. An. xi. Eugenius IV. A flyleaf has the modern description: Lib. cxlvi, fol. 313. Another flyleaf has the contemporary notes, in different hands: Jo. de Mer[t]zen and Rubricatus per me [the word 'me' is cancelled] Jo. de Mertzen 1442 [die] Sabbati xxiiii. mensis Marcii, and the usual contemporary description: Primus de prebendis, de prebendis et dignitatibus et dignitatibus vacantibus Anno xio. domini nostri Eugenii pape 4, which also occurs, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume.
2 The date in the text is 'millesimo quadringentesimo quadragesimo,' to which 'primo' is added in the margin, with note: 'Correctum de mandato domini C[hristophori de S. Marcello, as in Eubel, Hierarchia, II, p. 107] Ariminen. [episcopi] locum tenentis [vice-cancellarii], An. de Adria. There are two other slight corrections in the margin, subscribed 'An.'
3 qui ... studuit, et de nobili ac honorabili parentela ex patre diacono et soluta que de baronum genere originem traxit genitus existit...
4 paruorum (sic).
5 etiam ' is added in the margin by 'B.'
6 The last letter in the name has been roughly corrected, and 'Olongsigh,' rather than 'Olongsigly,' is perhaps intended to be read.
7 Denis has no surname in Eubel, Hierarchia, II, p. 162, where the date of his provision is 1441, May 10, the see being void by the death of John, presumably the John of the next following letter. He is not in Brady, Episcopal Succession, II, pp. 157, 158, where there is a gap of nearly a century. He has occurred in the present volume, above, p. 156, as Denis Ydonchua.
8 in manibus venerabilis fratris nostri Johannis episcopi Duacen. John Iiombarg, sometime abbot of Corcomroe (Eubel, I, p. 237 and Cal. Lett. vii, ad loc.) to whom, as being already dead, a successor, the Denis of the preceding letter, was provided by the pope on May 10. It is difficult to see how the description 'venerabilis fratris,' implying that he is still alive, could be applied by the pope to John on May 6.
9 fructus ... dicte thesaurarie sibi per eundem episcopum non in titulum perpetui beneficii ecclesiastici sed per modum seruicii cuiusdam capelle eidem ecclesie contigue cui deseruiuit assignate percepit.
