|To the bishop of Adria and the abbot of Holyrood (Sancte Crucis), Edynburcht, in the diocese of St. Andrews, and the prior of St. Andrews. Mandate as below. The petition of John Wrycht, perpetual vicar of Mussewurgh (rectius Musselburgh) in the diocese of St. Andrews, contained that although he formerly accepted within the lawful time and had provision made to him of the said vicarage by vigour of letters of the present pope, on its voidance by the death of William de Louthon, nevertheless Alexander de Kynglassy, clerk, of the said diocese, prevented the said acceptance and provision from taking effect, and himself took possession and still detains it; that the cause which arose between them was committed by the pope, the said parties being then sufficiently present in the Roman court, at John's instance to Master John Lohier, a papal chaplain and auditor, who by a definitive sentence declared the said acceptance and provision canonical, adjudged the said vicarage to John, removed Alexander, inducted John, imposed perpetual silence on Alexander and condemned him in fruits and costs; that the pope committed Alexander's appeal to Master Geminianus de Prato, also a papal chaplain and auditor, who by a definitive sentence confirmed that of Master John and pronounced Alexander's appeal therefrom bad, condemning him in the further fruits and costs; and that the pope committed Alexander's appeal from the
sentence of Master Geminianus to Master Peter Martini de Caueisrubeis, also a papal chaplain and auditor, who by a definitive sentence confirmed that of Master Geminianus, pronounced Alexander's appeal therefrom bad, and condemned him in the further fruits and costs, the total costs being subsequently taxed by Master Peter at 72 gold florins of the camera. At the said petition, which added that John doubts whether, whilst the suit has been pending, others have intruded themselves or may do so, the pope orders the above to execute the aforesaid, induct John and remove Alexander, causing satisfaction to be made to John in respect of the said fruits and costs, and to make the said execution, as regards possession only, alike against such intruders etc. Exhibita nobis.

|To the abbots of Lindores (de Londoris) and Cupar in the diocese of St Andrews. Mandate, at the recent petition of John, bishop of Brechin, and his brothers Robert Crannoch and David Crannoch, canons of Brechin, Laurence Piot, archdeacon of Aberdeen, and Alexander Piot and Andrew Fise (? rectius Fife), clerks, of the diocese of Dunkeld (containing that between the said bishop and canons, of the one part, and the said archdeacon and clerks, of the other part, there are divers causes to be ventilated, some of them pending in the Roman court, which the said bishop, archdeacon, canons and clerks desire to be finished in those parts) to resume the said pending causes, which the pope hereby calls up to himself, and to hear and decide them and the said other causes, without appeal. Humilibus supplicum votis. (An. and Franchomme. | An. xxiiii. de Adria.)|

|To the abbot of Whiteland (de Albalanda) in the diocese of St. Davids. Mandate as below. The recent petition of John Manavon', rector of Garthbeibio in the diocese of St. Asaph, contained that on the voidance of the parish church of Llannorin in the said diocese (by the deprivation for certain crimes [not here specified] of John Tegle, made by Reginald Beuchamp, rector of Tywyn and Howel Kelynyn, rector of Llangelynyn, in the diocese of Bangor, having special power from Henry, archbishop of Canterbury, the metropolitan) the said archbishop made collation and provision thereof to Walter Padarn, priest, who by vigour thereof obtained possession; that John Glascum, priest, of the said diocese of Bangor (asserting that collation had by authority of the ordinary been made to him of the said church, which he falsely alleged to be void by the voluntary resignation of the said John Tegle, made without the Roman court for purpose of exchange) hindered Walter's peaceable
possession, (fn. 6) wherefore Walter caused him to be summoned before William Biconelle, [now] a canon of Wells, then a D.C.L., to whom the said archbishop had committed the cause, from whom, after some proceedings had been taken, John, on the ground of an insufficient and fictitious grievance, appealed to, and caused Walter to be summoned before the official of Canterbury, who, wrongfully (perperam) proceeding in the said cause, delivered an unjust sentence in favour of John and against Walter, from which Walter appealed to the apostolic see. Seeing that, as the pope has learned, the said Walter, being in possession and being within the lawful time for the prosecution of the said appeal, proposes to give up the said cause and all right in or to the said church, the pope hereby orders the above abbot to summon the said John and others concerned, and hear and decide the said appeal, causing his decision to be observed by ecclesiastical censure, receive from Walter or his proctor the said cession, and thereupon surrogate the above John Mannaven' [sic], who says he is of noble race, and whom the pope hereby absolves from any sentences of excommunication to the effect that these presents may be executed, in and to the said right, and make collation and provision to him thereof etc., admit him to Walter's possession of the said church, and moreover to collate and assign to him (here spelt Mannavon) the said church itself, value not exceeding 20 marks sterling, whether it be void as above, or because Maurice Gwylym held it for more than a year without being ordained priest and without dispensation, or in any other way; notwithstanding that he (here spelt Manavon') holds the said church of Garthbeibio, value not exceeding 10 marks, which and the said church of Llannorin the pope hereby dispenses him, notwithstanding his late ordinance to the contrary [see above, p. 5], etc., to hold together for five years, during which he is to resign one of them for a benefice compatible with the other or, if not, to resign Garthbeibio after the lapse of the said period. Nobilitas etc. (B. and G. de Elten. | B. xl. Quinto Id. Junii Anno Duodecimo. Valven.) [3 ¼ pp. See below, f. 293, and above, p. 312.]|
