To the archbishop of Canterbury. Mandate, as below. Lately, on its being set forth to the pope by Ralph Webbe, perpetual vicar of St. Martin's in the Fields (in Campis) near Charryngerosse (sic) in the diocese of London, that formerly the master and brethren of the Augustinian chapel or hospital of St. Mary Rouncevall (Roncideuallis) by Charryngerosse (sic), under pretext of letters of Boniface IX were holding unlawful possession of divers tithes, oblations and other parochial rights belonging to the said vicar, that the archbishop was holding under arrest as suspect of forgery the said and certain other alleged papal letters, the pope ordered the archbishop, at Ralph's petition, if it should be evident to him that the said letters were forged, to send them to the papal chancery for examination, summon the said master and brethren to appear before the pope, and to sequestrate the said tithes etc. until he should be informed by the pope as to the genuineness or otherwise of the said letters [above, p. 238]. Afterwards the archbishop, in execution of the pope's letters, sent to the papal chancery for examination, letters suspected of having been forged under the names of Boniface IX, Urban VI, Clement VI and Urban V, and other letters forged under other names, and the said master and brethren, summoned to appear before the archbishop, have been contumacious. The said letters having been examined in the chancery and found to be forged, the pope orders the archbishop to summon the said master and brethren and others concerned, and to cause the said letters, which the pope sends back herewith, to be publicly denounced as foregeries and burned, to punish the forgers and those who wittingly made use of the said letters, and to cause the said tithes etc. to be restored to the said vicar and his successors. Further, the letters of Innocent VI, which the pope is sending back with the said other letters, the archbishop is to keep in his court, and is to inhibit the said master and brethren from using them or copies thereof until they have proved that they are genuine, and have received leave from the apostolic see to use them.

To the bishop of Worcester. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of John Dalberd, warden of the parish church of Tormerton in the diocese of Worcester, contained that the late John de la River, knight, gave divers fruits etc. for five chaplains in the said church, one called warden, ordaining that the warden should pay to each chaplain as yearly salary 24s., and provide them with food and lodging, and that on his resignation or death, the warden should leave to his successor a certain quantity of oxen, horses and other goods to the value of 20l. or the equivalent in ready money, and that the said warden and chaplains should daily sing and celebrate in the said church masses and other divine offices, and reside there; that subsequently Stephen Hadfeld and Maurice de la River, laymen, and Isabel le Scrop, of the said diocese, to whom the patronage had come after the death of the said knight, seeing that chaplains could no longer be easily had for the said salary, modified the said ordinance thus:—The said warden John should be bound to keep three chaplains only, and the said chaplains, considering their fewness, should no longer be bound to perform matins and mass with music, but could do so even without music, provided that they celebrated two masses a day one of them being a Requiem, and the said warden John, who had not received from his predecessor the above quantity or money, should not be bound to keep personal residence nor to leave to his successor such quantity or money equivalent. The pope orders the bishop to approve and confirm the said modification of the statutes. Humilibus supplicum votis.

Mart. V, No. 118]. Subsequently, during the life of bishop Nicholas, the pope specially reserved the said see, and afterwards upon its becoming void by the death of Nicholas, he made provision on 11 Kal.

Lately Peter de Luna, then called Benedict XIII in his obedience, after and against the definitive sentence pronounced against him by the General Council of Constance, but before the realms of the Spains and Scotland withdrew their obedience from him and yielded it to the said Council, made provision of the above see, immediately subject, void by the death of Alexander, to the above John. Afterwards the present pope, in the beginning of his pontificate, having learned the said voidance, made provision of the see, as void by the said death, to Griffin, bishop, [now] of Hippo (Yponen.), then of Ross. Inasmuch as the obedience of the said realm had not yet been yielded to the present pope, John took possession by virtue of the provision by the said Peter, and has hitherto acted as bishop. The pope having this day, for certain reasonable causes, translated the said Griffin from Ross to Hippo, hereby makes provision to the above John, [now] elect of Ross, then an Augustinian canon of St. Andrews, priest, and at the same time confirms and approves the acts of his administration hitherto as bishop. Romani pontificis. [Eubel, Hierarchia, has again used only the brief mention in Arm. xii, vol. 121, p. 157, which has the spelling ‘Joannes Bullob.’ See Cal. Pet. I, pp. 608, 638.]
