5 Id. Aug.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 85.)
To the prior of Spaldyng in the diocese of Lincoln. Mandate, as below. The petition of John Hervy, priest, of the said diocese, lately set forth that a cause arose between him and John Taylour alias Anable, priest, of the same diocese, about the perpetual vicarage of Wigtoft, in that diocese, to which, on its voidance by the death of Philip Widen, he was presented to the ordinary by Jordan, Cistercian abbot of Dore in the diocese of Hereford; and that Taylour opposed and prevented the presentation from taking effect, and intruded himself, asserting that he had been presented by John Holand, monk of the said monastery, who passed himself off as abbot thereof, and had been instituted by the said ordinary. The pope at Hervy's instance committed the cause, although not lawfully devolved to the Roman court, to the late James Steube, papal chaplain and auditor, and ordered him if he found that, as was asserted, neither Hervy nor Taylour had any right to the vicarage, to collate and assign it to Hervy. The auditor adjudged it to Hervy, who thereupon, as his recent petition contained, obtained letters of execution addressed to the above prior, his name not being mentioned, and two others, got possession of the vicarage, and had held it for some time when Taylour, with certain accomplices, entered the church in arms while mass was being celebrated, violently, even to the effusion of blood, despoiled Hervy, beat others who were present, and threw into a pit (foxeam) one of them, namely Thomas Pris, notary public apostolic letters and all. The said prior proceeded to the usual processes, causing Taylour, upon his contumacy, to be publicly excommunicated, whilst under which sentence he has celebrated divine offices in the said church, not yet reconciled. To make matters worse he tries to vex Hervy by the secular power and by royal writs, has intruded himself afresh, and is still in possession. At Hervy's appeal to the apostolic see the pope now orders the prior to annul the attempts of Taylour and Holand, and the institution of the former; to publicly declare him excommunicate and cause him to be avoided by all; to aggravate the processes as often as expedient, and to invoke, if necessary, the aid of the secular arm; notwithstanding that Hervy has obtained the committal of his said appeal to a certain auditor. Dudum pro parte.

To John Hody, perpetual vicar of Wollavyngton in the diocese of Wells. Absolution from sentences incurred; dispensation on account of irregularity, if any; dispensation to minister in his orders and to hold his said vicarage and any mutually compatible benefices of any number and kind; with rehabilitation. One day, when already a priest, he and a number of companions were amusing themselves by throwing stones, when a youth of about fourteen was accidentally struck on the head by a stone which John threw in the direction of his said companions. After an illness of six weeks, the youth was thought to have recovered sufficiently to go back to work, instead of doing which he went about in the heat and was attacked by fever. Feeling the pain again in his head, he fomented the wound with a corrosive drug, and died in five weeks. John's petition adds that it is probable that the youth died, not from the wound, but from other infirmities and through bad treatment, but that he fears that the original cause of death was the blow from the stone.

They state that in course of his metropolitan visitation of the diocese, upon his requisition Walter Bradelygh appeared as proctor of the said warden and scholars, and put in a written statement, exemplification of which is given in the archbishop's letters, of their right and title to the church of Milborne with the adjacent chapel of Deuelich, the church of All Saints, Cettra, and the chapels of Adlyngton and St. Mary, Waldych, all in the said diocese, and all which they hold to their uses, with their appurtenances, except only vicar's portions in the said two churches; and that after examination of witnesses, letters and documents, nothing was found against the said statement, whereupon the archbishop, with the consent of his assessors, declared the title of the warden and scholars to be good, absolved them from future inquisition and examination, and confirmed to them the said churches, etc. Their petition adds that such exhibitions of proof involve great labour and expense, as well as danger of injury on account of the age of the seals and writing, and that they doubt whether the present archbishop and his successors or other ordinaries or judges may not molest them and compel like exhibition, archbishop William's letters notwithstanding.

(f. 205.)
Annulment of certain surreptitious letters etc., as below. Cornelius Odeayg, archdeacon of Killaloe, bachelor of canon law, lately set forth to the pope that he successively, without mention of his illegitimacy as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, had himself made a clerk; obtained papal dispensation to minister in the orders he had received, be promoted to all, even holy orders, and hold a benefice even with cure; obtained, without dispensation for the purpose, a perpetual benefice called a rectory in the parish church of Dissertnolacala (sic), another in that of Killnafearwagi, and another in that of Kyllkady, in the diocese of Killaloe, the cure in which churches is exercised by perpetual vicars; obtained from Pileus, bishop of Tusculum, [then] cardinal priest of St. Praxed's, nuncio in England, dispensation to hold one other benefice, even if an elective dignity in a cathedral church, and to exchange the aforesaid benefices as often as seemed expedient for similar or dissimilar benefices: obtained by authority of the ordinary, under pretext of this latter dispensation, canonries and prebends of Killaloe and Kilfenora; was, by virtue of the said first dispensation, made subdeacon; obtained papal dispensation, without making mention that he had such benefices [and] canonries and prebends, to hold all dignities, below the pontifical, even if elective; under which last dispensation he obtained, by authority of the ordinary, collation of his said archdeaconry, void by the death of Cornelius Okemnedig, without obtaining possession of which he detained all his other said benefices and canonries and prebends; was rehabilitated by the present pope, who required him to resign his said archdeaconry, benefices, canonries and prebends, and dispensed him to hold four mutually compatible benefices with or without cure, even if canonries and prebends or dignities, major in metropolitan or cathedral or principal in collegiate churches, even if elective or archiepiscopal or episcopal, personatus or offices, with or without cure, and to resign them for exchange or otherwise and hold in their stead similar or dissimilar mutually compatible benefices; and obtained a mandate to Richard Yong, canon of Lincoln, and two others, to collate and assign to him the said archdeaconry, a dignity with cure, not major and not elective, value not exceeding 60 marks, and the said rectory of Dissertmolacala, value not exceeding 10, being at the same time dispensed to hold both for life. His recent petition contained that he made the said resignations, after which Richard made to him the said collations, and that subsequently the pope, circumvented by the false suggestion of Donatus Ocichaeghayn (sic, the form Machaeghayn, also occurs) clerk, of the said diocese, to the effect that he had not so resigned, ordered the priors of Monahincha (Insula Vivencium) and Lochcra (i.e. Lorrha) in the said diocese, their names not being expressed, and E[u] genius Omaenachayn, canon of Killaloe, to collate and assign the said archdeaconry to Donatus, which the first and third of them did. The appeal of Cornelius against the intrusion was committed by the pope to Nicholas, elect of Girgenti, papal chaplain and auditor. At the petition of Cornelius setting forth that the surreptitious nature of the statements made by Donatus would be clear alike from the registers of the letters granted to both of them, as from the proceedings of the above Richard, the pope has caused registers and proceedings to be inspected, from which it is evident that the suggestions of Donatus were devoid of truth and that Cornelius duly made the required resignations before the archdeaconry was collated to him. The pope therefore calls up the cause to himself, annuls the letters granted surreptitiously to Donatus, orders them to be abolished from his registers, annuls all processes made under them, and hereby orders the archbishop of Cashel and the bishops of Killaloe and Clonfert (Cluoynferten.) to restore Cornelius to the position he was in when Donatus obtained his said surreptitious letters, to remove Donatus, and to cause Cornelius to enjoy peaceful possession of his archdeaconry, condemning Donatus to restore to Cornelius the fruits received, and to make good his losses and costs.

To Walter Cook, canon of Lincoln. Grant motu proprio that his letters of provision, as below, shall hold good, as though they had not been frustrated by the statute [of Praemunire]. The pope lately reserved, for collation to Cook, the canonry and prebend of Faryngdon in Salisbury, which were to become void through the promotion, made by the pope, of Guy bishop of St. Davids, and his approaching consecration; afterwards making him provision of canonries of York, Lincoln, Salisbury and Lichfield, with expectation of prebends therein, and of a dignity, even major and elective, personatus or office, with or without cure, in one of them, with the anteferri clause, under which second letters he accepted by proctor and had provision made to him, on their voidance, of the canonry and prebend of Nethirbury and Bempstere in Salisbury and the archdeaconry of Buckingham, a dignity with cure in Lincoln. After having himself inducted, and after a fortnight's peaceable possession, he was despoiled by certain royal clerks, acting by authority of the ordinary, and especially under pretext of a certain statute lately put forth in England against apostolic provisions, on account of which statute he has not dared to defend his right. In order that he may not be deprived of the benefit of the said second letters the pope hereby wills that they shall, from the date when they were granted, hold good as far as regards another canonry and prebend in Salisbury and another such dignity etc. in one of the said churches; that he may carry on and defend his suit, pending in the apostolic palace, about the said canonry and prebend of Faringdon, and hold them if he win (evinceris) them; and that he may accept, on their voidance, a prebend of Salisbury and such dignity etc. as if he had not accepted Netherbirg and Bempstere and the said archdeaconry.
