To the precentor and the treasurer of Cloyne (Clonen.), and Dermit Okywe, a canon of the same. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of William Ymurchw, priest, of the diocese of Cloyne, contained that formerly, on the voidance in a certain way [not here expressed] of the perpetual vicarages of the parish churches of Athacaryn', which is of the patronage of laymen, and Ballynoe (de Novavilla) in the said diocese, Jordan bishop of Cloyne, considering that the fruits etc. of each of the said vicarage were so slight that each perpetual vicar could not be conveniently maintained etc. therewith, united them by his ordinary authority for the lifetime of the said William, and made collation and provision to him thereof, thus united, and that in virtue thereof he obtained possession, and has held them in peace for about ten years, taking the fruits. The said petition adding that some doubt whether the said union, and that William doubts whether the said collation and provision, hold good, and the pope having learned that the vicarages are still void as above, the pope, hereby rehabilitating William on account of the foregoing, and holding the true and last modes of their voidance to be expressed by these presents, orders the above three, if they find that the causes for the said union were sufficient and lawful, to confirm it by papal authority, and in that event to collate and assign the vicarages, which have cure and whose yearly value does not exceed 8 marks sterling, to William. Apostolice sedis providentia circunspecta (sic). (L. Dathus. | xx. Jo. de Buccabellis. G. de Fuentes. D. de Piscia. N. de Piccolominibus. Collat. G. Blondus. In the margin: Mar(tii).) [4 pp.]

The recent petition of the prior and brethren of the Carthusian house of the Salutation of the Mother of God without the walls of London contained that formerly Edward [the present] king of England gave them and their said house his right of patronage in the Benedictine alien priory of Okebourne and in its manor of Okebourne in Okebourne Magna and Okebourne Parva, otherwise called the manor of Okebourne Seyncte George in Okebourne Magna and Okebourne Parva in the county of Wilts, in the diocese of Salisbury, or the ownership of them and all his right in them, (fn. 4) as is more fully contained in the authentic letters of the said king inserted in certain other public letters drawn up in the form of a transumpt, exhibited to the pope, the tenour of which the pope holds to be expressed by these presents. At the petition of the said king and prior and brethren the pope, holding the value of the said priory, in which no monk has for a long time resided, (fn. 5) and of the said manor etc., to be expressed by these presents, and absolving the prior and brethren from all sentences of excommunication etc. on account of the receiving the said priory and manor, approves and confirms the said donation and grant and all the other contents of the said letters and their consequences, and grants that the prior and brethren may retain the said priory and manor etc. Ad perp. rei mem.

To the precentor of Lismore. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of William Ydonhyn, a monk of the Cistercian monastery of Inishlounaght (de Surio) in the diocese of Lismore, contained that he formerly impetrated papal letters directed to the bishop of Lismore against Dermit Ohyffyrnayn, [now] a monk, then abbot of the said monastery, by which the said bishop was ordered, if he found that the said Dermit had perpetrated certain excesses and crimes [not here expressed], to deprive and remove him, and in that event to make provision to William; that, the said letters having been expedited, he got them sent to those parts by a certain messenger; that Dermit, having learned the said impetration, violently took away or caused to be taken away the said letters from the said messenger, when on his journey and being in the realm of England; and that, information having been given before the said bishop on William's behalf concerning the carrying away of the said letters, and their contents and effect, that bishop, at William's instance, cited Dermit as if the said letters had been presented to him, afterwards subdelegating the cause to Thomas Oflatwayn, a canon of Lismore, who, after lawful proof before him of the taking away of the said letters, and of their substantial form, etc., by his definitive sentence deprived Dermit, and made provision to William, who had been dispensed by the same letters, on account of illegitimacy as the son of an abbot of the said order and an unmarried woman, to be appointed to the said monastery; and that from the said sentence and certain fictitious grievances falsely alleged by Dermit to have been inflicted on him by the said canon before the said sentence, Dermit appealed to the apostolic see, afterwards renouncing the appeal. The said petition adding that William doubts whether the said provision holds good on account of the non-presentation of the original letters [and] for certain other reasons, and the said monastery being, as the pope has learned, still void as above, the pope orders the above precentor to summon Dermit and others concerned, and if he find the said William, who has made his open profession of the said order and is reputed in those parts to be true abbot of the monastery, and who takes the fruits thereof, to be fit, to make provision to him of the said monastery, value not exceeding 70 marks sterling. The pope hereby dispenses him to be appointed abbot etc., notwithstanding the said defect etc., and grants that he may be blessed by any catholic bishop, who shall thereafter receive from him the usual oath of fealty according to the form enclosed.

(f. 156.)
To David Colden, a canon of Dunkeld, M.A. Collation etc., as below. On Kal April anno 1 [1 April, 1465] the pope ordered, motu proprio, provision to be made to him of one or two benefices, void or to become void, wont to be assigned to secular clerks, even if one of them had cure or were a rural deanery or archpriestship reputed to be a dignity with cure, but without a cathedral church, or were a dignity or a personatus in a cathedral or a collegiate church, or were a canonry and prebend in the same cathedral church, or either of them were a canonry and prebend in a collegiate church, or an administration or office in the same churches, and such dignity etc. were elective, and one of them had cure, in the common or several collation etc. of the bishop and the dean and chapter etc. of Dunkeld and of the abbot and convent of the Benedictine monastery of Kelso alias Calco in the diocese of St. Andrews. The pope therefore, having learned that David has obtained by canonical collation the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Saulin in the diocese of Dunkeld, hereby restores, also motu proprio, the said letters and their processes and clauses, and also David himself, to the state in which they and he were before such collation etc., annuls, with David's consent, the said letters as far [only] as regards the collation etc. of the said bishop, dean and chapter etc., and makes collation and provision to him of a canonry of Dunkeld, and reserves to his own gift, for collation to David, a prebend and a dignity etc. thereof, provided that such dignity be not major, etc. The pope further wills and grants to him that in virtue, alike of the said other letters and processes, which shall hold good from the date thereof and avail him for the present purpose, and also of these presents, he may accept such canonry and prebend and dignity etc. of the said church of Dunkeld, and also such other benefice comprised in the same letters, and that the executors thereof may make provision to him thereof etc., as if the said collation and taking possession had not happened, and as if provision had been made to him from the outset of a canonry with reservation of a prebend and a dignity etc. of Dunkeld. The pope's will is that as soon as he obtains possession of such dignity etc. or benefice with cure, whether in virtue of the said other or of the present letters, both the present and the said other letters and processes, and their consequences, shall be null and void as far only as regards the other (reliquum) benefice incompatible therewith.

To the archdeacon of Glasgow. Mandate, as below. The pope lately, upon learning that Edward Canigham (recte Coni[n]gham, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Galstone in the diocese of Glasgow, had resigned the vicarage before notary and witnesses, granted provision thereof, when it should be void by the admission of the resignation, to Richard Cady, priest, of the said diocese; and upon his ceding to the pope the said grant, before the letters thereof had been drawn up, the pope, admitting the said cession, ordered provision to be made, when it should be void by the admission of the said cession, to Patrick Lech, priest, of the same diocese. The said Patrick having this day, before the execution of the letters granted to him, ceded to the pope, by his proctor, James Inglis, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Cader in the said diocese, all right in or to the said vicarage, the pope hereby orders the archdeacon, if he find that the resignation of the said Edward was lawful, to admit it by papal authority, if not already admitted, and to collate and assign the said vicarage of Galssone (sic), value not exceeding 11l. sterling, to William Marschel, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Loydom in the said diocese, whether it be void by such resignation and admission, or be still void by the death of Robert de Conyegham (recte Conyngham) or of Laurence Tran, or by such cession, or in any other way.

To the abbot of Paisley (de Pasleto) in the diocese of Glasgow and William Elphenston, a canon of Glasgow. Mandate, at the recent petition of Andrew Pytycru, (fn. 12) priest, of the diocese of St. Andrews (containing that on the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Batrat in the said diocese becoming void by the death of John Yrnas (or Yrnes,? recte Ynnes), the abbot of the Benedictine monastery of Neubotil in the said diocese, to whom the presentation belongs by ancient custom, presented the said Andrew within the lawful time to Patrick bishop of St. Andrews, who without reasonable cause has refused to institute him) to collate and assign to Andrew the said vicarage, value not exceeding 9l. sterling.

To the bishop of Glasgow. Mandate, as below. Lately, on the Benedictine monastery of St. Mary the Virgin, Calco, in the diocese of St. Andrews, exempt and immediately subject to the pope and the apostolic see, becoming void by the death of abbot Alan Kuk, the present pope granted it, previously specially reserved to himself and the said see, in commendam for a certain time, then expressed, to Richard Wyli, then archdeacon of Brechin, and thereafter made provision thereof to him and appointed him abbot, (fn. 13) committing to him the rule and administration, as is more fully contained in the pope's letters on the subject. The recent petition of the said Richard contained that a certain monk, Robert Ker, alleging that he was elected abbot by the convent, has, under pretext of such election, after and contrary to the papal reservation (fn. 14) and the pope's said provision, de facto intruded himself in the rule and administration; and added that the said Robert afterwards, making no mention of the pope's said provision, and expressing not the monastery's true or more usually employed name in such cases, namely ‘Calco,’ but that of ‘Kelsow,' extorted by fraud from the pope certain letters (fn. 15) by which it is said that provision was ordered to be made to him, in virtue of which letters, continuing his intrusion, he has in many ways prevented the letters of provision granted to Richard from taking effect. The pope therefore orders the above bishop to summon Robert and others concerned, and if he find the foregoing to be true, to decree and declare the said and any other election by the convent made after the said reservation, (fn. 16) and their consequences, to be null and void, to annul the said extorted letters and their consequences, and cause Richard to obtain possession of the rule and administration, removing Robert and any other detainer, etc. Officii nostri cura exigit. (L. Dathus. | xxx. M. de Sole. L. de Banchis. Collat. G. Blondus. In the margin: Aprilis.) [3½ pp.]

Footnotes

3 On the back of the volume is the usual modern lettering: ‘Paul ii.Secret. Ann. v. Lib. viii.’ Inside is the front half of the original sheepskin binding, with the contemporary description: ‘viii. bullarum [Pauli ii],' below which another contemporary hand has added de anno quinto. On the bottom edge of the volume is the usual contemporary description: ’viii. bullarum Pauli.’ A second sheepskin flyleaf is followed by a paper flyleaf on which is ‘Rubricelle libri octavi bullarum sanctissimi domini nostri domini Pauli divina providentia pape ii. de annis quarto et quinto,' and the rubricelle themselves begin on the next following folio. They extend to 10 pp. and are headed: ‘Rubricelle libri octavi bullarum sanctissimi domini nostri domini Pauli divina providentia pape ii. de anno quinto’ (recte de annis quarto et quinto) and end: ‘Finis dictarum rubricellarum. Deo gratias.’ After a blank leaf comes one headed: ‘Quinternus primus libri octavi bullarum sanctissimi domini nostri [domini] Pauli pape ii,' with a brief list of the contents of the first quire of the Register, below which is Rubricellatus, and below that again, in a different hand, ‘In nomine domini Amen, a nativitate domini mcccclxix.’ The text follows, viz., ff, i.–cccx.

7 Or Abbrecearne. The spelling has been corrected and is consequently not clear.
