To the abbot of St. Mary's Macosquin (de Clarofonte) in the diocese of Derry and William and Cornelius Ocearuollan, canons of Derry. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Eugenius Ohegrartaych (recte Ohegeartaych), priest, of the diocese of Derry, contained that (after he had been 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, and had obtained, collated to him by authority of the ordinary, the rectory of the parish church of Bredach in the diocese of Down (Dunen.), which has cure, and had held possession, although not in peace, for more than two months but less than a year, taking the fruits), on the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Ba[l]leiniscrine in the said diocese of Derry by the deprivation, made by Nicholas bishop of Derry by his ordinary authority, of Henry Ohumcrigh (? recte Ohinnerigh) for his faults and demerits, the said bishop made collation and provision thereof by the said ordinary authority to the said Eugenius, who had obtained no other dispensation on account of the said defect, and had previously resigned the said rectory, under pretext of which collation and provision he obtained the vicarage, was promoted to all holy and priest's orders, and held possession for more than a year, as he still does, taking the fruits. The said collation and provision being therefore without force, and the said vicarage being still void as above, and the rectory of Balleiniscrine having become and being still void by the death of Nellanus Oneyll, although James Okailte, clerk, of the said diocese of Derry, has for more than three years but less than five unduly detained it without any canonical title, and without having obtained any papal dispensation on account of illegitimacy as the son of unmarried parents; and the said petition adding that if the said rectory were united to the said vicarage for the lifetime of Eugenius, who is a native of the place where the rectory is, he could be more becomingly maintained and attend to the repair of the buildings of the said church of Balleiniscrine, which are threatened with ruin. etc., the pope hereby orders the above three to summon the said James and others concerned, and if they find the facts to be as stated, to collate and assign the said vicarage and rectory, the value of each not exceeding 5 marks sterling, to Eugenius, and moreover to unite the rectory to the vicarage for his lifetime and as long as he shall be the holder. He is hereby dispensed to receive and retain them, notwithstanding the said defect etc. Pastoralis officii debitum. (L. Dathus. | xxx. S. de Spada. Jo. de Buccabellis. Collat.G. Blondus.

The said pieces of land having come to the said Camera because all their last holders have died without heirs, the pope hereby orders the above three, if they find the facts to be as stated, to grant them to farm, under the wonted yearly cess, to the said William, for himself and his father and their heirs.Sincere devotionis affectus.

To the bishop, the dean and the precentor of Dunkeld. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of John Cawrus (or Cawrns or Cawiris) (fn. 4) , a canon of the Augustinian monastery of Scone in the diocese of St. Andrews, contained that on the voidance of the priorship of the monastery of St. Colmocus de Insula, of the said order, in the diocese of Dunblane, by the resignation of the late Gilbert de Camera made to the subprior and convent, and admitted thereby, they elected as prior, but only de facto, Thomas Dogh, a canon of the said monastery, who, consenting thereto, got it confirmed by John bishop of Dunblane; that after he had held possession for some months, but less than a year, the present pope, upon his alleging that it was void by the death of the said Gilbert, ordered provision thereof, void by the said death, and previously reserved, even if void in any other way, to be made to the same Thomas, the papal letters containing no mention that he had been elected prior of the monastery as void by the said resignation, and had been confirmed, and that he had uncanonically obtained it, and had taken the fruits etc. and converted them to his benefit, or disposed of them at his pleasure and in no wise to the benefit of the monastery. The said petition adding that the said letters, under pretext of which Thomas has continued to detain the monastery for less than a year, are surreptitious, and that he had and has therefore no right in or to it, the pope hereby orders the above three, seeing that from fear of Thomas's power John cannot safely meet him within the city and diocese of Dunblane, to summon Thomas and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be the case, and the said letters to be therefore surreptitious, to decree and declare that they, and their consequences, are null and void, and that Thomas had and has no right in or to the monastery, and in that event to collate and assign it, which is conventual and depends on no monastery or other regular place, and whose yearly value does not exceed 80l. sterling, whether void as above, or by the resignation of the said Gilbert or Thomas or any other, or void in any other way, to John.

The said bishop's petition adding that ten years have now elapsed since the death of the said knight, and that no foundation of the said college has been made, and that the bishop has remained the sole executor of the said will, the others having fallen away by death or renunciation or disability, (fn. 17) and that the bishop desires to complete the said knight's legacies, and to apply the residue of all the moveable and immovable goods left by him for the said purposes to the college of St. Mary Magdalen without the East gate of the university of Oxford [in the diocese] of Lincoln, instituted by the said bishop, provided that he have the authority of the apostolic see, the pope hereby grants him faculty, after he has paid the said legacies, to apply, appropriate and assign the said residue, the yearly values of which and of the said college of St. Mary Magdalen, the pope holds to be expressed by these presents, in perpetuity to that college, remove detainers, compel contradictors by ecclesiastical censure etc., without appeal. and invoke if necessary, the aid of the secular arm, notwithstanding the said testator's will, etc.A supremo patrefamilias.

(f. 291.)
To Thomas, cardinal priest of St. Ciriac's in Thermis. Mandate, as below. It was set forth to Pius II on behalf of Edward king of England that whereas there had been from of old in the royal castle of Windsor (de Vindesora) in the diocese of Salisbury a college or collegiate church of St. George the Martyr, the founders of which had been kings of England, and that there is at the said church a society of knights called [the Knights] of the Garter, of which the king has always been the prior, as is the present king; that in the said church divine offices are continuously celebrated with great devotion, and that the said knights often assemble thereat, wearing a certain knightly habit with the insignia of the said order (militie); and that there was a certain other college of ecclesiastical persons there miles distant from the said castle, which the late king Henry erected but had never finished, and that there was at the said college a church founded under the name of St. Mary the Virgin and hardly begun, which was of little use or importance; and it was added in the said statement that although on account of the changes which had taken place in those parts, there was not much hope of the said erection being finished, nevertheless, if it were finished it would (inasmuch as the college within the said castle was always more notable, as it then was) be to the no (sic) small increase of divine worship and benefit of the neighbouring persons. Pope Pius, (fn. 18) therefore, at the petition of the said king Edward, transferring the persons of the said college of St. Mary to that of St. George, and suppressing and extinguishing the name and office of a college therein, united and appropriated in perpetuity the said church and college of St. Mary, with all its possessions, to the said college and church of St. George, so that thenceforward there should from the said two colleges be a single college in the said castle and one capitular mensa only, and so that it should be lawful for the persons, both of the said college of St. George and of the said transferred college, to take possession of their own authority of the newly (de novo) founded church and of the said possessions, and convert them to the benefit of themselves and of the said churches, and retain them in perpetuity, etc.; the said pope further ordaining that the persons of the new college, thus transferred to the old, should be admitted in the said college of St. George in accordance with their estate and dignity or order, and that both they and the others of the college of St. George should enjoy conjointly all privileges etc. of both colleges, etc. The recent petition of king Edward to the present pope contained that at the time when he impetrated the said letters he had not full knowledge of the foregoing, and that the said statement was in great part removed from the truth, and that he desires them to be revoked, and the said translation and union etc. to be dissolved, and the said college of ecclesiastical persons, thus united, to be conserved in its former privileges and increased. At the said petition for the revocation and annulment of the said letters, as being surreptitious and invalid, and of the said translation and union etc., and their consequences, and for the confirmation and approval of the said college of ecclesiastical persons, which was confirmed and approved by Nicholas V and Calixtus III, and for its restoration to the state in which it was before the said letters emanated, etc., the pope, holding the yearly values of the said colleges etc. to be expressed by these presents, and calling up to himself and extinguishing any suit which may have arisen on account of the foregoing, hereby orders the above cardinal, who is also by papal grant archbishop of Canterbury, to summon the dean or warden of the said college of the castle of Windsor and others concerned, and inform himself, and if he find the foregoing or any part thereof sufficient for the purpose to be true, to revoke the said letters of pope Pius as surreptitious and invalid, and the said translation and union etc., and their consequences, and to dissolve the said union etc. and separate the colleges, and approve and confirm the said college of ecclesiastical persons, and restore it to the state in which it was before the said letters emanated, so that it may be lawful for the provost and persons thereof to rule and govern it as before, forbidding the said dean or warden and persons of the college of St. George to interfere in future with the said college of ecclesiastical persons, or vex etc. its persons and goods, under pain of ipso facto excommunication; with faculty to cite and monish the said dean or warden and others, even by means of public edict affixed in public places near those parts, which citations etc. shall be binding as if personally served, etc. Circunspecta (sic) in omnibus suis actibus. (L. Dathus. | c. N. Bregeon. D. de Piscia. A.de Urbino. Collat. G. Blondus. In the margin: Maii.) [6 pp. See Cal. Papal Letters, Vol. XI, p. 655, and Vol. X, passim.]

To Renaldus Omurihuly, a canon of Cork. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Donatus Ydonnanayn, archdeacon of Ross, contained that on the voidance, by the death of Macrobius Ohedersogeoyll (sic), of a canonry of Cork and the prebend of Drumdalyag, Jordan bishop of Cork made collation and provision by his ordinary authority, but only de facto, to the said Donatus, who had been dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy as the son of a then clerk, now a bishop, and an unmarried woman, related in the third and third degrees of kindred and the third and fourth degrees of affinity, to be promoted to all [even holy] orders and receive and retain a benefice even with cure, after which he was duly tonsured, under pretext of which collation and provision he obtained possession, and has held them for three months, likewise only de facto, taking none of the fruits. The said collation and provision being therefore without force, and the canonry and prebend being, as the pope has learned, still void as above, he hereby orders the above canon to collate and assign them, value not exceeding 12 marks sterling, whether void as above or by the resignation of the said Macrobius or in any other way, to Donatus; notwithstanding that he holds the said archdeaconry, a non-major elective dignity with cure, value not exceeding 16 marks sterling, collated to him by papal authority with the necessary dispensation. He is hereby dispensed to receive and retain the canonry and prebend, and to receive and retain for life together with the said archdeaconry any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, or if he resign the archdeaconry (vel illo dimisso) any two other benefices with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if dignities etc., provided that they be not major or principal dignities or two parish churches or their perpetual vicarages, or such mixed, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, (fn. 19) notwithstanding the said defect etc. Dignum etc. (L. Dathus. | xxxx. N. Bregeon.A. de Vulterris. D. de Piscia. M. Millinus [? recte de Millinis]. Collat. G. Blondus. In the margin: Aprilis.) [6½ pp.]
