8 Kal. June.
Bologna.
(f. 49.)
To John Penkeston, Benedictine monk of Hyde by Winchester. Decree giving retrospective force to, and sufficing as proof of, the dispensation granted by Alexander V on 13 Kal. Jan. anno 1 [1409] to him—who had already received papal dispensation, as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, to hold any dignities, administrations or offices of his order below the abbatial dignity—to hold even the abbatial dignity; pope Alexander's letters, on account of his death, not having been drawn up. Racioni congruit.
Ibid. A like decree, and for the same reason, in regard to the confirmation by Alexander V on the same date as above, viz. 13 Kal. Jan. anno 1, of the appropriation by the late Richard, bishop of Salisbury, to the Augustinian prior and convent of Mottisfont (de Montefonte) in the diocese of Winchester, value not exceeding 300 marks, of the parish church, of their patronage, of St. James, Berewyk, in his diocese, value not exceeding 30 marks. Bishop Richard made the appropriation, having summoned the late Robert Hywerth, rector of St. James's, and others, and having found true the statements of the prior and convent, namely that their lands, fields, etc., situate for the most part by the sea shore, were frequently invaded by Flemings, French and Normans and other enemies of the realm, for the defence of which men-at-arms from time to time lodged at the priory, consumed its animals and grain, and plundered and carried away as booty other of its moveable goods, wherefore the cultivators (coloni) of the said fields had left them for the most part uncultivated; that before those times their buildings were not a little collapsed; that the serfs (serri censuales), who had been wont to pay servile work and a yearly cess and to feed the said animals, had died by the frequent pestilences, so that their possessions were almost reduced to naught; that in consequence their church and houses, granges and manors were ruinous and not easy to repair; and that the store animals (animalia ad staurum, ut eorum rerbis utamur) of their manors had been in great number taken from them. Ad fut. rei mem. Racioni etc.

Ibid.
(f. 72.)
To the bishop of Veszprem and the dean of Elphin and the archdeacon of Kilmore. A like decree, and for the same reason, in regard to the collation by Alexander V on 9 Kal. May anno 1 [1410] of the Augustinian priory of St. Mary, Inismoir, in the diocese of Ardagh, a conventual dignity with cure, dependent on the Augustinian monastery of St. Mary, Lueth, in the diocese of Armagh, and value not exceeding 50 marks, on its voidance by the death of Thomas Ochani, to Nemias Offeargail, canon of the said priory, priest, notwithstanding his illegitimacy as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman related in the third and fourth degrees of kindred and the second and third of affinity; with mandate to carry out the collation.Racioni congruit. [See f. 176d.]

Bologna.
(f. 84d.)
Decree—at the recent petition of Donatus Odubnarla, prior, and the convent of the Augustinian priory of St. Mary, Galynne, in the diocese of Clonmacnoise (Cluanen.), containing that they are in great poverty because the fruits etc. of their monastery, in which a fixed number of canons has not yet been instituted, do not exceed 12 marks, with which not more than a prior and three canons, even living miserably, can be sustained; and that from time to time, at the importunate and irresistible prayers of many persons, sometimes even of magnates, they are compelled to receive more persons as canons and brethren —that henceforth no persons shall be admitted as canons, even by papal letters or letters of papal legates, which do not make verbatim mention of these presents, so long as the number of one prior and three canons be maintained, which number the pope wills to be inviolably observed, unless the resources be so increased that more canons can be maintained. Ad fut. rei mem. Sincere devocionis. (viii, residuum pro deo.)

To Thady Okellaid, canon of Elphin. Decree giving retrospective force to, and sufficing as proof of, the following mandate granted by Alexander V on 5 Id. March anno 1 [1410]. That pope, at the petition of Matthew Omulymnain, Augustinian canon of St. Mary's, Cluaintuaisgert, in the diocese of Elphin— containing that Boniface IX ordered provision to be made to him of the said priory, on its voidance by the death of Maurice Megneil, and dispensed him, as the son of a priest religious and an unmarried woman, to hold it, by virtue of which he obtained and held it in peace for many years; that because he afterwards went to and adhered to the Council of Pisa, Angelus Corario, called Gregory XII, after the departure of the cardinals from Lucca, deprived him, and ordered provision of the priory, as being thus void, to be made to Hector Maciago, canon of the same, under pretext of which Hector dispossessed him, intruded himself and held it for a year and more; and that it was asserted that the priory had become and was void otherwise than by the death of Maurice—ordered a judge in those parts, if he found the above to be the case, to annul the letters of Angelus, to restore Matthew and remove Hector, and to collate and assign the priory, with cure, elective, and value not exceeding 40 marks, whether void by the said death or otherwise, to Matthew.
