To Thomas Clyff, rector of Islep in the diocese of Lincoln. Dispensation to him, who is in minor orders only, not to be bound during seven years, whilst studying letters at an university, to be promoted to other holy orders on account of the said church, of which he has not yet had a year's possession, or of any other benefice, provided that within the said year he be ordained subdeacon.

6 Id. Nov.
Mantua.
(f. 182d.)
To William Neuport, canon of Lichfield, B.C.L. Prolongation of Boniface IX's dispensation to hold for seven years with his archdeaconry of Salop, which is a dignity with cure, any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if the holder were bound to be a priest, and to resign both meanwhile as often as he pleased, for exchange or otherwise, and not be bound during the said period to have himself ordained priest [Cal. Lett. V, p. 474]. He exchanged the said archdeaconry for that of Kermerdyn, which is a non-major dignity, and obtained the parish church of Wyggeston alias Wykynggeston, in the diocese of Lincoln, the value of each not exceeding 60 marks, which he has held for some time, as he still does, as well as the canonries and prebends of Langanten and Landarrok in Abergwilly, Estrat in Landewybrevy, in the diocese of St. Davids, and Longedon in Lichfield, value not exceeding 55 marks. Of the said seven years, reckoning from the time when he began to hold the two incompatible benefices, a good portion has still to run, but Hugh Martyll, priest, of the diocese of York, on the ground that the seven years ought to be reckoned from the date when the said dispensation was granted and that they have therefore expired, has had himself presented to the said parish church, as being void, against which presentation William has appealed to the apostolic see. The pope hereby holds that the period of seven years is to be reckoned as above, namely from the time when he began to hold the incompatible benefices, and prolongs it for three years more. Litterarum sciencia, vite etc.
11 Kal. Aug.
Geneva
(f. 196d.)
To John, archbishop of Tuam. Indult to him, who is a Friar Preacher and a master of theology, to have for life as his private chaplain a friar of his said Order. Personam tuam. [Ripoll, Bullar. Praed. II., p. 549.]
6 Kal. March.
Constance.
(f. 213.)
To the archdeacon of Armagh. Mandate etc. as below, in behalf of William Mackamail, rector of Cl[u]ainfyacla in the diocese of Armagh. Baldassar, called John XXIII, ordered collation to be made to William (who had had papal dispensation as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted etc. as above, f. 114, and to whom the same pope had previously, by other letters, ordered provision to be made of the above rectory of Cluainfyacla) of the rectory of Ardtrea in the said diocese, void because the late Cornelius Oneyl had held it for more than a year without having himself ordained priest and without dispensation super hoc, dispensing him to hold both rectories for life. At the recent petition of William, containing that it is alleged that the rectory of Ardtrea, which he obtained under the above letters, became and is still void, not as above, but because Eugenius Oneyll, rector of Acheocayll in the diocese of Connor, whilst holding Ardtrea obtained Acheocayll by papal authority, and that William fears molestation on account of the above allegation, and also because he, having obtained Cluainfyacla under the said earlier letters, was dispensed by the late archbishop Nicholas, by his ordinary authority, during four years to be ordained subdeacon only whilst studying letters at an university, and had himself ordained subdeacon within a year of obtaining the rectories of the said two churches (the cure of which is exercised by perpetual vicars), but, relying on the said archbishop's dispensation, the letters of which on account of the archbishop's death were not drawn up, and proof of which he cannot produce, has not been ordained priest. The pope therefore orders the above archdeacon, provided that William, who says he has studied canon law for three years, will swear to the truth of the preceding, to decree that he is not to be molested on account of the said rectories, the value of each of which does not exceed 12 marks, and to grant that the collation and provision made to him of Ardtrea shall hold good from the present date, even though it became void in the other way mentioned, and dispenses him hereby to hold the two rectories together for life. Vite etc. (Franciscus. xxiiii. Octaua Kal. Septembris Anno Primo. de Agello.)
11 Kal. April.
Constance.
(f. 218.)
Ratification etc. as below. The recent petition of Nicholas, bishop of Bath and Wells, contained that a cause arose between the late bishop John and the late Stephen Pempel (also written Pempell), dean of Wells, about the bishop's ancient jurisdiction in spiritual causes arising in the church, city and suburb of Wells, crimes etc. of the subdeans, canons etc., probate etc. of the wills of the same, etc.; and that the cause was submitted to the arbitration of the late brother Nicholas, abbot of Cirencester, O.S.A., and Thomas Wormenhale, licentiate of civil law, canon of Salisbury. Exemplification is given of a public instrument drawn up by Thomas Benet, notary public, stating that in the year of the Incarnation 1378 (? rectius 1377) after the reckoning of the English church, indiction 15, anno 7 Gregory XI, Aug. 7, the above two arbitrators sat to deliver sentence, that the bishop's proctor, John de Dudm[er]ton, vicar of St. Mary's de Stalles, Bath, duly appeared, that dean Stephen did not appear, and was pronounced contumacious and condemned in costs. The above instrument contains exemplification of the said sentence in favour of the bishop, with the proctorial letters of the above John de Dudm[er]ton and the declaration of the said proctor, as also of Nicholas Hethe, clerk, of the diocese of Exeter, proctor of the dean in his cause against the bishop and Master Thomas Spert, his official or commissary, urging, amongst other things, the case of the will of Master William Whyte, sometime subdean of Wells, recently deceased within the said city and suburb, the probate of which the bishop usurped from the dean. Those present at the sentence are the above Master Thomas Spert, D.C.L., and Robert Sleo, canons of Wells, Hugh Werstone and Robert Welesborne, clerks, notaries public, of the dioceses of Worcester, Wells and Salisbury, and many others. The said petition of bishop Nicholas adding that although he has gained three definitive sentences in the Roman court against the present dean, Walter Medforde, he fears lest the above sentence may in course of time lose its effect, the pope hereby ratifies the said sentence, and declares that it shall be binding in perpetuity, and that the present exemplification shall have the force of the original. Ad perp. rei mem. Ad Christi vicarii.
Concurrent mandate to the bishops of Oloron and Salisbury and the abbot of Glastonbury in the diocese of Wells. Hodie venerabili fratri. (Antonius. cxv. cxxx. de Ponto.) [14½ pp.]
