(f. 132d.)
To John Bloduell', canon of St. Asaph, B.C.L. Grant etc., as below. The late Baldassar, bishop of Tusculum, called John XXIII, dispensed him—who was then holding the parish church of Whiteparish (Albi monasterii) in the diocese of Salisbury, and to whom provision had previously been made by papal authority of the parish church of Saltewode in the diocese of Canterbury, possession of which he had not got—to receive, without prejudice to his right in respect of Saltewode, one other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if a parish church etc., and to hold it for life with either Whiteparish of Saltewode, and to resign both, [simply or for exchange], and hold instead two incompatible benefices [Cal. Lett. VI, p. 415]. After this dispensation he obtained by canonical collation the parish church of Tadmerton in the diocese of Lincoln, having resigned Whiteparish, and subsequently, on the voidance of the parish church of Northope alias Llaneurgaen in the diocese of St. Asaph, by the death of Hugh Holbach at and during the voidance of the apostolic see, Robert, bishop of St. Asaph, perhaps in ignorance that Northope had before Hugh's death been reserved, made collation and provision of it by his ordinary authority to the said John. Later, after he, perhaps equally ignorant, had obtained possession of Northope and had held it for some time with Tadmerton, the parish church of Stretton in the Clay in the diocese of York became void by the death of Robert Apilton, also at the apostolic see, and archbishop Henry, perhaps in ignorance that before Robert's death it had been reserved, made collation and provision of it to John who, perhaps equally ignorant, obtained possession of it, having previously resigned Tadmerton, so that he held together, as he still does, by virtue of the said dispensation, Northope and Stretton. The pope therefore grants motu proprio that the said collations and provisions of Northope and Stretton shall hold good from their respective dates, as if there had been no such papal reservation, and hereby confirms them. He further dispenses John to hold the said two churches together for life, and to resign them, simply or for exchange. Litterarum etc. (Ja. l. Sextodecimo Kal. Nouembris Anno Quinto. de Cerretanis.)
2 Non. Aug.
Vicovaro.
(f. 133d.)
To Walter Medefordi, dean of Wells. Confirmation to him, whom the present pope deputed as collector to the camera in England [on 5 Dec. 1417, above, p.1], of the dispensation which Peter, bishop of Dax, legate (rectius nuncio) to England and other parts, granted him, in virtue of a faculty conferred by Boniface IX, to hold for life two incompatible benefices, and exchange them, as often as he pleased, for exchange or simply; notwithstanding that the said faculty extended to twenty persons only, and that the said dispensation does not mention the said number nor indicate in what order Walter stood therein, on account of which omission he has feared to be molested in respect of such incompatible benefices. Vite etc.
18 Kal. Oct.
Tivoli.
(f. 136d.)
To Master John Ixworth, archdeacon of Worcester, D.C.L., papal referendary. Prolongation, as below. The pope lately ordered, motu proprio, provision to be made to him (then inter alia holding by papal grant and dispensation the above archdeaconry, which is a dignity with cure, and the parish church of Pulham in the diocese of Norwich) of the parish church of Boston in the diocese of Lincoln, about to become void. After this the pope dispensed him to hold together for one year Boston, Pulham and the said archdeaconry, even if it were a major dignity, and, resigning one of them meanwhile for exchange or simply, to retain the other two for life, and to resign such two, as often as he thought good, likewise for exchange or simply. Subsequently the pope prolonged the said year (John having meanwhile obtained possession of Boston) by a second year and again by a third, the end of which, as the pope has learned, is at hand. He therefore motu proprio prolongs the said period by a fourth year. The value of Boston does not exceed 300 marks, and that of Pulham and the said archdeaconry together does not exceed 150. Grata tue deuocionis.

(f. 175d.)
To John, bishop of Annadown. Dispensation, seeing that on account of wars and other calamities he has been for many years and is unable to get anything from his episcopal mensa, and for the same reasons is unable even to reside in his church, to hold therewith, in order to maintain himself, as long as the said wars etc. last, one or two benefices, secular or regular, even if such one or one of such two have cure, etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases. Personam tuam.

S. Maria Maggiore.
Rome.
(f. 193.)
To Master John Ixworth, canon of Lincoln, D.C.L., papal referendary. Grant, as below. Lately the pope ordered provision to be made to him of the canonry and prebend of Bykleswade in Lincoln, on their expected voidance by the promotion, which had been made by the pope [above, p. 133], of Philip [Morgan], bishop, then elect, of Worcester, and by his approaching consecration. Subsequently, Philip [Repington], bishop, formerly of Lincoln, resigned that see by his proctor Robert. bishop of Elphin, at the apostolic see, to Branda, cardinal priest of St. Clement's, who by the pope's verbal order admitted the resignation, the said Philip, formerly bishop of Lincoln, being in England (in partibus illis), and being ignorant of the time of the said resignation, and therefore continuing to administer his see after the said resignation had been made, and until it came to his knowledge. The pope has by other letters ratified and as far as needful has confirmed the bishop's acts during the said temporary administration. Seeing that during the said interval the above canonry and prebend became void by the said promotion and the taking place by the pope's order of the said consecration of the above Philip [Morgan], bishop, then elect, the said Philip [Repington], sometime bishop of Lincoln, being still ignorant of the said resignation, made collation and provision of them by his ordinary authority to John, saving any papal reservations or mandate of the pope; and seeing that the said John desires for certain reasons [not given] to make use of the said bishop's collation and provision rather than of the pope's said mandate, without however surrendering the latter, but doubts whether the said collation and provision, under which he had obtained possession, hold good, the pope grants, motu proprio, that the said collation and provision shall hold good from the date thereof, any papal reservation notwithstanding. Gratu deuocionis obsequia. (Ja. xx. Undecimo Kal. Januarii Anno Sexto. de Cerretanis.)
Id. July.

(f. 195d.)

Litterarum etc. [There are five verbal corrections in the margin, and the note: Correcta de mandato domini B. de Montepoliciano, sed propter eius nimiam correcturam cassata et alibi registrata, Ja. de Cerretanis. The letter is subscribed, after the date, as usual, Franciscus. xxv. de Agello.]
