Cal. Lett. V, p. 314) English miles, as well as of wars etc., access to their parish church of St. David, Achanurcyr, in the said diocese, for divine offices and the sacraments, baptisms and burials, was very difficult, especially in the winter and rainy season; and that, if to the chapel of St. Colman, Lynnela (cf. ibid.), in the said country, were subjected the chapels, in the same country, of Rachayn, Kylleacy, Raliffen, Habuge (cf. ibid.), Drumculynd and Eglays, all daughter chapels of and annexed to St. David's, it would be fit for erection into a parish church; and that its fruits and those of the said other chapels were sufficient for a rector and a vicar, the latter to have the cure of the said inhabitants and to pay the episcopal and other dues—ordered the bishop of Termoli and the priors of Duruake and Seirkieran (de Sygro) in the dioceses of Meath and Ossory (cf. ibid. pp. 314 and 407), to separate from St. David's all the said chapels, to erect that of St. Colman into a parish church, to subject thereto the others as daughter chapels, notwithstanding that they had cure, to assign to it the said country as its parish, and to grant that St. Colman's, even if it or any other of the said chapels were of lay patronage, might have font, cemetery and other parochial insignia. At the recent petition of the said inhabitants (containing that Anthony, bishop of Termoli, proceeding alone, separated the said chapel of St. Colman and the others from St. David's, erected the chapel of St. Colman into a parish church, assigned to it the said chapels as daughter chapels and the said country as parish, and granted that it should have font etc.) the pope orders the above prior to summon the rector of St. David's and others concerned, and if he find that the statements of the inhabitants be true, and that the rector of St. David's can be maintained from the rest of the fruits of that church, and pay the episcopal dues etc., to confirm the separation, erection etc. made by the said bishop.
