To all the inhabitants of both sexes near the chapel of St. Mary called Mersschapell situate by the seashore within the bounds of the parish of the parish church of Fulstowe, in the diocese of Lincoln. Grant, as below. Lately, upon its being set forth to the pope on their behalf that the said chapel was distant a mile of those parts from the said parish church, and that by reason of floods and other perils of the way they were often unable to go thither for burials without great difficulty, the pope by other letters granted to them that they might erect a cemetery near the said chapel, and therein, after it had been consecrated by the ordinary or any other catholic bishop of their choice, bury their dead after the manner of the country, the rector of the said church being convoked or his deputy, or any other priest invited by him for the purpose. (fn. 2) At their recent petition (containing that between [them and] the abbot and convent of the Cistercian monastery of Louth Park (de Parco ludo) in the said diocese, to whom the said church is united in perpetuity, a fit portion being reserved for a perpetual vicar presented by them and instituted by the ordinary, various riots and dissensions have arisen because (fn. 3) no mention was made in the said letters of the said union and perpetual vicar, only the rector of the said church, who is in reality a vicar, being named, wherefore the said inhabitants doubt whether the said letters are not surreptitious) the pope hereby grants to them, who allege that in virtue of the said indult they have erected such cemetery and had it consecrated by John bishop of Ardfert (Hartfertensem episcopum), which consecration the pope hereby approves and confirms, that the said letters shall hold good from the date of these presents in all respects, as if full and express mention had been made therein, of the said union and vicar, and not of a rector. The pope further grants them indult that they may invite, if they wish, the vicar of the said church and (ac) the chaplain of the said chapel, or if not, any other priest, for such burials, (fn. 4) without prejudice, however, to the said abbot and convent or parish church. Devotionis vestre sinceritas. (Her. and M. de Montia. | Her. xxvi. de Monasterio pro magistris Registri.) [12/3 pp. See Cal. Papal Letters, XI, p. 630.]

To Eustace de Maxwel, priest, of the diocese of Glasgow. Rehabilitation, as below. His recent petition contained that, after he had been dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy as the son of unmarried parents, to be promoted to all even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, and had had himself in virtue thereof so promoted and had obtained, collated to him by authority of the ordinary, the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Moiboil in the said diocese, with cure, and had held it in peace for more than two years but less than three, he held together therewith for about a month, without further papal dispensation and against ‘Execrabilis,’ the provostship of the same Moiboil, a principal dignity with cure, canonically collated to him; and that after John Seres, priest, of the said diocese, alleging that he had been presented to the said vicarage by the patrons, the abbess and convent of the Benedictine monastery of North Berwyk in the diocese of St. Andrews, and had been instituted by the ordinary, had obtained possession and (Eustace having been removed therefrom) had held and possessed it for some time, the said Eustace and he, desiring to exchange the provostship and vicarage, resigned them for that purpose to the dean and chapter of Glasgow, the episcopal see being void, who made collation of the provostship to John and of the vicarage to Eustace, in virtue of which collation Eustace again obtained the vicarage, and has detained it for about two years. At the said petition, adding that he has since been removed by papal authority from the vicarage as a detainer, and has utterly resigned it, as well as the provostship, the pope hereby rehabilitates him on account of the foregoing.

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1464. Anno to. Lib. 3’ and on a modern flyleaf is Mgr. Wenzel's ‘An. 6 to. 3.’ A contemporary flyleaf has, in different contemporary hands, the description: ‘Tertius de diversis anno vio domini nostri domini Pii pape ii,’ the order: ‘R(ecipe) Jo. P. [i.e. P. de Varris],’ and the corresponding: ‘Rubricatus [est] per me Johannem Monroyg,’ etc., e.g. the frequently occurring ‘Quesit(us).’ A like contemporary description ‘Tertius …’ occurs also, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume. The text extends from f. i. to f. cccviiii.

5 The MS. Indice to the Lateran Registers of Pius II has under the letter ‘G’ the following, as occurring in Lib. iii. an. vi. (i.e. Reg. DXCVIII), f. 59: ‘Glasgnensis (sic), Thomas de Blackwode. Vicaria per resignationem.’ The ‘f. 59’ of the Indice is evidently an error for ‘f. 62’ as below, p. 224.
6 pensionem annuam quatuor celdrarum farine de decimis giabalibus (sic) eiusdem vicarie que summam trium librarum similium secundum predictam extimacionem annuatim non excedunt.
7 Idus’ of the text is cancelled, and ‘Kal.’ substituted in the margin and subscribed ‘H.,’ i.e ‘H. Folani.’
