10 Kal. April.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 23d.)
Confirmation as below. Lately [6 March, 1392, in Cal. Lett. IV, p. 435] Boniface IX, at the petition of the prior and convent of the monastery of Sempyngham in the diocese of Lincoln, immediately belonging to the Roman church—containing that their church was ruined with age and prostrate on the ground, and that they had begun to rebuild it at no little expense—on account of their poverty and the malignity of the time, ordered the abbot of Brunne in the said diocese, without mention of his name, to appropriate to them the parish church of Hacunby, in the said diocese, of their patronage, value not exceeding 30 marks, that of the monastery not exceeding 600, so that on the resignation or death of the rector they might take possession, a portion for a perpetual vicar being reserved. Their petition to the present pope contained that Geoffrey, abbot of Brunne proceeded to the execution of the said letters, and that on the free resignation of the rector, Robert (sic) (fn. 1) , they took possession, and have held it for eleven years and more; and that the said appropriation falls under the annulment by pope Boniface on 11 Kal. Jan. anno 14[1402, see Cal. Lett. V, p. 599] of all unions of benefices made by himself or his immediate predecessor, and also those made by any ordinaries, which had not taken effect, and also those which had taken effect otherwise than through death. The pope therefore confirms the said appropriation, and grants that it shall hold good henceforth, the said annulment notwithstanding. Ad fut. rei mem. Sincere devocionis.

(f. 26d.)
Confirmation, at the petition of the Cistercian abbot and convent of St. Mary's, Kyrkestall, of the appropriation, as below, made to them under letters of Boniface IX, granted to them at the instance of the late John, duke of Aquitaine and Lancaster. Exemplification is given of the letters of pope Boniface—Ad perp. rei mem. In supreme dignitatis, dated at St. Peter's, Rome, 2 Id. Dec. anno 8 [1396, in Cal. Lett. V, p. 16], granting at the petition of the said duke the separation from the Benedictine monastery of St. Martin, Aumale (de Albamarla), in the diocese of Rouen, being schismatic, and the appropriation to St. Mary's, Kyrkestall, of the parish churches of Bristall, Paull (Pagula), Skeklyng, Kylnese, Wythornse, Outethoren and Aldeburgh, with their chapels, etc. in the diocese of York, the values of which churches and of St. Mary's are given as in Cal. Lett. V, p. 16. The pope hereby confirms the said letters and appropriation of pope Boniface, and the subsequent obtaining possession by the abbot and convent of the said churches, etc., notwithstanding pope Boniface's subsequent general annulment on 11 Kal. Jan. anno 14 [1402, ibid, p. 599] of appropriations. Ad fut. rei mem. Sacre religionis. [4 pp.]

St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 59.)
To the treasurer of York. Mandate, if he find, as stated in the recent petition of Thomas Beverley, Cistercian monk of Rievaulx in the diocese of York, priest—that according to the customs and statutes of the monastery each of the monks in priest's orders is bound in turn for a week at a time to sing mass solemnly (alta voce ad notam) at the high altar and to say the invitatory, such monks being called Ebdomadarii; and that Thomas, on account of a certain impediment of the tongue, cannot do so becomingly—to grant that he is not bound so to do and may not be compelled. Sincere devocionis.
8 Id. April.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 65d.)
To the Premonstratensian abbot of Neuhous in the diocese of York. Annulment, etc. as below. Urban VI, on the adhesion of John, abbot of Prémontré in the diocese of Laon to Robert, antipope, called Clement VII, ordered the abbot of Wellebek in the diocese of York, his name not being expressed, to convoke the order in the parts of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales (Ybernic, Galwaye et Wallie) to a chapter-general, granting faculty to him and such chapter-general to elect two visitors, who for three years should visit, correct and reform the order in the said parts, should in place of the schismatic father-abbots of houses in the said parts preside at elections and confirm them, and do and ordain all other things which might and ought to be done by the abbot of Prémontré and such chapter-general, the same procedure to be renewed every three years during the Schism. Pope Urban further exempted the said abbot of Wellebek and the rest of the order in the said parts from the said abbot John and his adherents, and subjected them to him who should be appointed in the said chapter-general. The pope annuls the said letters of Urban VI, and orders the abbot of Neuhous to convoke the order in the said parts of England, Wales and Ireland to a chapter-general, to preside over it until the election of a new president and two other visitors, who shall all remain in office for three years only unless re-elected, which election shall be made at the beginning of the chaptergeneral by it or its sounder part. The pope grants to the abbots, etc. and religious assembled in the chapter-general thus convoked, and in all other chapters-general to be similarly celebrated every three years during the Schism, and to the sounder part of them, faculty to elect anew at the end of each such period and at the beginning of each such chapter, a president and two other visitors having power to visit, etc. and do all other things as expressed in the letters of pope Urban. He grants to the order in the said parts like exemption as above, and subjects them to the said president for the time being. Cunctos Christifideles.
3 Non. March.
Viterbo.
(f. 70.)
To John Berkeforde, Augustinian canon of Huntyngdon priory. Dispensation to hold a benefice with cure, wont to be served by secular clerks or priests, [even if of the patronage of laymen]. Religionis zelus, vite etc. [See below, f. 177.]
6 Id. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 71d.)
To William, Cistercian abbot of St. Mary's, Furness (de Fornesio), in the diocese of York. Grant to him—who, as his recent petition contained, on the voidance of the monastery by the death of abbot John, was, a monk thereof and in priest's orders, duly elected by the convent; who, consenting thereto, caused the election to be confirmed by Richard, abbot of Dore (de Dora) and John, abbot of Helmecoltran, in the dioceses of Hereford and Carlisle, deputed visitors of the order in the realm of England and the parts of Ireland by John, abbot of St. Mary's, Waverley, in the diocese of Winchester, president, specially empowered for the purpose, as he asserted, by the apostolic see, and by the diffinitores of the chapter-general then last celebrated in the said realm; and who doubts whether the provision of the monastery had not, at the time of the election or the confirmation, been reserved to the said see, or whether the confirmation and the election hold good—that the said election and confirmation shall henceforth hold good. Juxta pastoralis.
2 Non. March.
Viterbo.
(f. 78d.)
To William Hay, Augustinian canon of St. Mary's priory, Merton, in the diocese of Winchester. Declaration that he—whom, a priest and canon of Merton, the pope recently [above, f. 6] dispensed to hold a parish church, or a perpetual vicarage [even] wont to be served by secular clerks, even if of lay patronage; and whose later petition contains that he doubts whether the prior may not hinder him or refuse licence—that he may obtain possession of such without such licence, and that as soon as he obtains such possession and as long as he holds it he shall be exempt from the jurisdiction of the prior, and shall be immediately subject to the ordinary. Justis et honestis.
1405.
4 Kal. Jan.
Viterbo.
(f. 79.)
To the prior of Westacre in the diocese of Norwich. Mandate, at the recent petition of Simon, Cluniac prior of St. Mary's, Castelacre, in the same diocese—containing that upon his obtaining the priory the late Richard earl of Arundel, asserting himself to be its patron, exacted from him an oath not to alienate its woods, corrodies or other possessions, nor manumit its serfs without licence or consent of the said earl and his successors; and adding that he fears lest prejudice may in consequence arise to himself and his successors and to the priory—seeing that to laymen has been assigned no power over persons and things ecclesiastical, after imposing on Simon a salutary penance for his incautious oath, to declare him not to be bound to observe it, and his successors not to be bound to take a like oath to the said earl's successors; notwithstanding any custom, which should rather be called an abuse (corruptela), to the contrary, and saving Simon's oath to his superior about alienations. Humilibus et honestis.
1406.
8 Id. March.
Viterbo.
(f. 79d.)
Confirmation, as below. The recent petition of John Zouch, minister-provincial of the Friars Minors of the province of England, contained that when he would have corrected the excesses committed by friars in the province, they procured from the late Francis, bishop of Sabina, deputed as protector of the order by the apostolic see, a commission for Nicholas Fakenham and John Mallert, friars of the order, to remove him from his office; that under pretext of the said commission they, as far as they could, deposed him during his legitimate absence from the realm, and proceeded, against the will of the greater part of the friars of the province, to the election of another minister-provincial; and that afterwards, in consequence of a letter from the said bishop, being better informed, to the minister-general and the ministers-provincial and the friars then in chapter-general assembled, the minister-general confirmed him in his office or deputed him thereto anew, and annulled whatever had been done under the said commission. The petition adding that nevertheless the said two friars will not obey him as their superior, unless he be furnished with greater faculty in respect of the above, the pope hereby confirms the said confirmation and deputation. Ad fut. rei mem. Regis pacifici. [Wadding, Annales Minorum IX (1734), p. 499, with readings Zouche, Fakenhiim, Mallaert.]
6 Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 85d.)
To John Honylond, Augustinian canon of St. Stephen's priory, Launceston, in the diocese of Exeter.

Exigit tue devocionis.
2 Id. Jan.
Viterbo.
(f. 108d.)

5 Kal. Feb.
Viterbo.
(f. 113d.)
To the abbot of Perschorre in the diocese of Worcester. Mandate to cause, by excommunication and other censures, inviolable observance, notwithstanding its interruption for some years past by bold despisers, of the ancient custom whereby, after the daily ringing, commonly called the curfew (ignitegium), of the evening bell. in the cathedral (majoris) church, and also in the morning before the ringing for prime, no bell can or ought to be rung in other churches or chapels of the city; which interruption is to the no small disturbance and injury of the prior and chapter and other religious bound to divine offices in the cathedral, especially of those who are bound to be present at matins and prayers and the night offices. Justis et honestis.
15 Kal. March.
Viterbo.
(f. 114.)
To John, Cistercian abbot of Geroldon in the diocese of Lincoln. Dispensation—seeing that, on account of wars and divers chances, the revenues of his monastery are insufficient for the support of himself and the convent, and that, on account of the frequent concourse of guests to the monastery, situate hard by the public road, and of the exactions of secular powers, he has constantly to sustain heavy and insupportable burdens, wherefore the monastery is so impoverished that he has not the means of keeping decent state—to hold with his monastery, as long as he shall be abbot, a benefice with cure, even if of lay patronage and wont to be served by secular clerks. Sincere devocionis.

(f. 118.)
To Hugh W[h]athamstede, Benedictine monk of St. Albans.

Before beginning to exercise the office, he is to take to Anthony, bishop of Palestrina, papal major penitentiary, oath according to the form appended. Religionis zelus, vite etc. [See f. 108d.]

1406.
15 Kal. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 118d.)
To Thomas Milton, Benedictine monk of St. Saviour's, Faversham, in the diocese of Canterbury. Dispensation to hold a benefice with cure, even if it be wont to be served by secular clerks and be a parish church or a perpetual vicarage, and to resign it, for exchange or otherwise, as often as he pleases, and hold instead a similar or dissimilar benefice with cure. Religionis etc.
8 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 124d.)
To the prior and chapter of Rochester, O.S.B. Grant as below, recapitulating the mandate of Boniface IX [27 Jan. 1391, in Cal. Lett. IV, p. 365] to the abbot of St. Augustine's without the walls of Canterbury to appropriate anew to the prior and chapter and the capitular mensa of Rochester the parish church of Boxle in the diocese of Canterbury, recapitulating also the petition of the prior and chapter to the said pope and giving the values, as ibid. Their recent petition to the present pope contained that the said abbot duly made the appropriation, and that they obtained possession of the church on its voidance by the resignation of Nicholas Julian. The pope therefore grants that the said letters and appropriation, etc. shall hold good, notwithstanding Boniface IX's subsequent general annulment on 11 Kal. Dec. anno 14 [1402, ibid. p. 599] of appropriations which had not yet taken effect, and of those which had taken effect otherwise than through the death of the holders. Sincere devocionis affectus.
15 Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 140.)
To the abbot of Evesham in the diocese of Worcester. Mandate to collate and assign to John Stanlake, Cistercian monk of Hayles in the said diocese, if found fit in Latin, the parish church, value not exceeding 3½ marks, of Pynnokschyre in the same diocese, which has been wont to be served by secular clerks, and to which, on its voidance by the resignation of John Hostlore to bishop Tideman, he was presented by the abbot and convent of the said monastery [of Hayles], and instituted by the said bishop, in consequence of the rarity of secular priests in those parts, and of the fact that on account of the smallness of the stipend no fit secular priest was to be found willing to be instituted. He doubts whether his presentation and institution to the said church which, as the pope has learned, is still void, hold good. Dignum [arbitramur].
Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 147.)
To the bishop of London. Mandate to declare valid the appropriation made to the abbot and convent of Westminster by John, bishop of Lincoln, with consent of the dean and chapter and the archdeacon of Honty [n] gdon, and of the confirmation thereof by Boniface IX [Cal. Lett. IV, p. 430], of the parish church of Aldenham in his diocese, value not exceeding 50 (quinquaginta; Reg. XXIV, f. 104d. has quinquaginta et octo) marks, that of the monastery not exceeding 3,000, possession of which church, upon its voidance by the cession of Thomas Atherston to the said bishop, they duly obtained and have held for ten years. They fear molestation on account of the general annulment by the said pope on 11 Kal. Jan. anno 14 [1402, see Cal. Lett. V, p. 599] of appropriations. Sacre religionis.
1406.
9 Kal. July.
St. Peter's. Rome.
(f. 152.)
Confirmation as below. Urban VI, at the petition of king Richard and the Carthusian prior and brethren of the house of St. Michael by Kynggeston upon Hull in the diocese of York—setting forth that the said house had been newly built for a prior and twelve brethren, but was not yet sufficiently endowed, and that the patronage of the parish church of Hoggestorp in the diocese of Lincoln had been given them by the lay patrons for purpose of appropriation—ordered the archbishop of York, his name not being expressed, to make the appropriation, so that on the resignation or death of the rector they might take possession and retain it for five years only. Boniface IX, at the petition of the said king, prior and brethren, ordered the said archbishop to appropriate the said church to the said house, their values not exceeding 120 and 180 marks respectively, so that on the resignation or death of the rector they might take possession and retain it in perpetuity, a fit portion being reserved for a perpetual vicar, a secular. The recent petition of the prior and brethren to the present pope contained that Thomas, archbishop, [now] of Canterbury, then of York, made the said perpetual appropriation, and reserved a perpetual vicar's portion, and that the prior and brethren obtained possession on resignation of the rector, Ivo, and have held it for some years. The pope grants that the said appropriation shall hold good, notwithstanding that it is comprehended in pope Boniface's subsequent general annulment on 11 Kal. Jan. anno 14 [1402, see Cal. Lett. V, p. 599] of appropriations. Ad fut. rei mem. Sincere devocionis affectus.
9 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 175d.)
Annulment, etc. as below. The petition of Richard, abbot of Abingdon, contained that the then bishop of Salisbury, with the common consent of the late Hugh, abbot, and the convent, upon their assertion that for the removal of the claustral priors contentions and scandals had occasionally arisen, make a statute to the effect that just as in the election of the priors the common consent of all, both abbot and convent, was required; so in their removal for just cause the vote of all should be required; and that afterwards Alexander IV—upon its being set forth to him by the abbot and the convent that, in order to cut off all the cause of scandal which had very often arisen between the abbots and the priors and convent, it had been anciently ordained and to that day observed that the prior should have one groom (garcionem) and one horse, with a stable, at the expense of the abbot, and a room where he could receive some of the monks and other visitors—confirmed both statute and ordinance. At the said petition, which added that on account of the said statute, ordinance and confirmation, the claustral priors, reputing themselves perpetual and irrevocable, have not shown due subjection to the abbots, so that obedience has been greatly disturbed, the pope annuls the statute, ordinance and confirmation as contrary to the canons and institutes of the order, and decrees that the present prior and his successors may and shall be removed at the sole pleasure of the abbot. Ad fut. rei mem. Inter ceteras.
