|To William (W[ill]ellmo) Omulwardayn alias Brothe, (fn. 1) clerk, of the diocese of Ossory. Grant, as below. Calixtus III (upon being informed by him that Thomas Troy, then a canon of Ossory and prebendary of Achur therein, and open and notorious fornicator, procured the capture of John Thedyan (recte Ohedyan), clerk, of the diocese of Cashel, on his way from the Roman court, thereby incurring the sentences etc. promulgated therefor, and, utterly ignorant of letters, dilapidated etc. and uselessly consumed the goods of his canonry and prebend, to the shame of the clerical order) ordered the archbishop of Cashel and Matthew Ochuck (sic), a canon of Cashel, inasmuch as from fear of Thomas's power William could not safely meet him in the city and diocese of Ossory, to summon Thomas and others concerned, and if they found the foregoing to be true, to deprive and remove Thomas, and in that event to collate and assign the canonry and prebend to William, the said pope by the same letters dispensing him (who had been dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy as the son of a professed monk of the Cistercian order and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure) to receive and retain the said canonry and prebend. William's recent petition to the present pope contained that he caused Thomas to be summoned before the said archbishop, in virtue of the said letters, and that the said archbishop, proceeding lawfully, found that Thomas had perpetrated the foregoing, deprived and removed him, and made collation and provision to William, in virtue of which he obtained and still holds possession; that Thomas appealed to the apostolic see from the said deprivation, removal and collation and provision, after the archbishop's sentence had become a res judicata, because William had in the said letters alleged that he was a clerk of [the diocese of] Cashel, whereas he was of [the diocese of] Ossory, and because the word ‘Cassalliensis’ [sic] had been erased and ‘Ossoriensis’ put [instead] without papal order; and that the present pope committed the cause, at Thomas's instance, to Master Bernard Rouira, a papal chaplain and auditor, who is said to have proceeded, but short of a conclusion. The said petition adding that it has been found that the correction and putting of ‘Ossoriensis' instead (loco) of ‘Cassillensis’ was done by order of Rodrigo, cardinal deacon of St. Nicholas's in Carcere Tulliano, vicechancellor of the Roman church, wherefore Thomas has, for the sake of peace, ceded to the pope this day the said suit and all right belonging to him in and to the said canonry and prebend, and that the pope has admitted the same, the pope, hereby calling up the cause to himself, and extinguishing the suit, hereby wills and grants that the said letters of Calixtus, and the collation and provision and dispensation made to him in virtue thereof etc. shall hold good from the date of these presents, even if the said canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 16 marks sterling, be void as above, or in any other way.

Mandate to collate and assign to Richard Bossher, priest, of the diocese of Ferns (who was lately dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, after which he was so promoted) a canonry of Ferns and the prebend of Kyllarogy (recte Kyllanogy), with the annexed parish church of Colscriff (recte Colstuff) in the said diocese, value together not exceeding 8 marks sterling, which became void at the apostolic see, and therefore ipso facto reserved, by the promotion made by Calixtus III of John Purcell, [now] bishop,
then elect of Ferns, to that church, and by his consecration, administered to him at the said see by order of the said pope, who died without having disposed thereof, so that they still remain void and reserved to the present pope; summoning and removing Maurice Sanyche (? recte Smythe), clerk, of the said diocese, who, as Richard alleges, under pretext of a collation made to him by the ordinary, he having no papal dispensation on account of illegitimacy as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, and without any other tittle of canonical right, has for more than four years but less than five detained the said canonry and prebend and annexed church, after and contrary to the said reservation, as he still does. Richard is hereby dispensed to receive and retain the said canonry and prebend and annexed church, and any benefices compatible with one another and with the said canonry and prebend and benefice (sic), of any number and kind, with and without cure, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, notwithstanding the said defect etc. Vite etc. (Her. and — (fn. 1) . | Her. lx.Terciodecimo Kal.

Gilbert de Rethe, knight and lord of the said place of Enrugy, the patron, presented the said James to James bishop of St. Andrews within the lawful time. The said petition adding that the said bishop, although requested by James several times (pluries). has unjustly refused to institute him, and the canonry and prebend being still void as above, the pope hereby orders the above three to collate and assign them, value not exceeding 24l. sterling, to James, who alleges that he is by both parents of a great race of barons of the realm of Scotland.
