|To Denis Day, elect of Ossory. Grant to him, to whom the pope recently made provision of the said see, to hold therewith for life on account of the poverty of its mensa, even after he has been consecrated or the canonical period during which consecration should take place has lapsed, his precentorship of Limerick, a non-major, non-elective dignity with cure, value not exceeding 20l., provision of which, on its expected voidance by the above provision and approaching consecration, the pope made on 2 Non. July to John Pidde, priest, of the diocese of Norwich, who, before his letters were drawn up, has in the Roman court resigned all right in presence of Henry Suryng, clerk, of the diocese of Paderborn, notary public, and witnesses; with dispensation hereby to resign the precentorship for purpose of exchange. Personam tuam. (Franciscus. xxv. Tercio Idus Septembris Anno Quarto. de Agello.)

S. Maria Maggiore, Rome.
|To the bishop of Ciudad Rodrigo (Ciuitaten.), the abbot of St. Michael's, Mayo, in the diocese of Tuam, and the archdeacon of Annadown. Mandate, as below. The pope has already rehabilitated Remundus Bremycheam, clerk, of the diocese of Tuam, at his petition setting forth that formerly John, archbishop of Tuam, made collation and provision to him by his ordinary authority of a canonry of Tuam, in which church there is no fixed (certus) number of canons nor distinction of prebends; that subsequently William Ranny, dean of Tuam, then vicar-general in spirituals of the said archbishop, from whom he had special power, made collation and provision to him of the parish church of Killheryheran (also written Kyllheryheran) in the said diocese, instead of a canonical portion in the said church of Tuam; and that he (who is illegitimate, being the son of an unmarried man of baronial race and an unmarried woman of knightly race, and was then suffering defect of age in regard to holding the said parish church, being in his sixteenth year, but who had duly received the tonsure) had, without being dispensed on account of the said defects, obtained and was still detaining possession of the said canonry and parish church, both of which the pope required him to resign. The pope having learned that the provostship of Tuam, a non-major non-elective dignity without cure, is void by the death of Dermit Omurcuayn, and that the parish church of Dunmor in the diocese of Tuam, of the patronage of laymen, has been so long void by the death of James Cachir that its collation has by the Lateran statutes lapsed to the apostolic see, he orders the above executors to collate and assign both, value together not exceeding 28 marks, to Remundus, who has studied canon and civil law for eight or nine years, and is in his twenty-fourth year only, after he has duly resigned the above canonry and church. He is hereby dispensed to be promoted to all higher, even holy orders, and to hold provostship and rectory together for life, and to resign them, simply or for exchange. Vite etc. (Ja. l.
