To Eugenius Oneyll, priest, of the diocese of Armagh. Rehabilitation on account of his having (after having received papal dispensation 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 obtained, also by papal authority, the rectory of Acheocheaill) obtained possession under a papal grant, the letters of which had not been made out, of the perpetual vicarage of Dyserland, which two benefices are in the dioceses of Connor (Conuentren.) and Armagh, and of his having held them together for a year and more, taking the fruits. He afterwards resigned the said vicarage, and he is likewise to resign the said rectory. Sedes apostolica, pia mater. [See Cal. Lett. VI, p. 261.]

To Eugenius Oconchur, chancellor of the church of Ardfert. Grant, as below. His recent petition contained that Baldassar, called John XXIII in his obedience, to which those parts then belonged, ordered the prior of Killagh (de Bello loco) in the diocese of Ardfert and two others (not here named) to collate and assign to him the chancellorship of Ardfert, a non-major, non-elective dignity with cure, value not exceeding 8 marks, void because its holder Patrick Offighillig obtained and held therewith the perpetual vicarage of Balissidia in the said diocese; that prior John cited David [son] of Thomas Fitzmoris (David Thomefi[tz]moris), priest, of the same diocese, who was in wrongful possession of the chancellorship, removed him by a definitive sentence, and made collation and provision to Eugenius; that David's appeal to the apostolic see was not prosecuted; that Eugenius duly obtained possession; but that it is now asserted that the chancellorship did not become void as above, but by the death of Henry Karhind. The pope therefore grants that the collation and provision made to Eugenius shall hold good, in whatsoever way the chancellorship became void. Vite etc.

Rehabilitation, at his recent petition, containing that after having received papal dispensation, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted etc. as above, f. 88d, he obtained, by papal provision, the rectory of Enga in the above diocese (void by Execrabilis because Peter Omaillcalland obtained, and for more than a month held it, without dispensation, together with his rectory of Tanlacat in the diocese of Armagh), bought off Peter's possible opposition to his peaceable possession by a simoniacal agreement to let him have half the fruits until Peter should obtain another benefice, and has ministered in all the above orders. He is to resign the rectory. Sedes apostolica, pia mater.
