To William de Foulis, clerk, of the diocese of St. Andrews, M.A. Rehabilitation as below. Lately (on its being set forth to the pope on his behalf that formerly, on the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of Edenburch in the said diocese, by the death of James Leonis, he was presented by the patron, king James, to bishop Henry, who refused to institute him, and that he appealed to the apostolic see) the pope ordered (by letters which have not yet begun to be executed) certain judges to summon the said bishop and others concerned, to hear and decide the appeal and the principal matter, and if they found the said patronage and presentation lawful, to collate and assign to him the vicarage, which the pope dispensed him to hold for two years with his provostship of the church of Bothwile in the diocese of Glasgow, a principal [elective, cf. Reg. CCXLV, f. 216] dignity with cure, requiring him to exchange one or the other for a compatible benefice, and if not, to resign the provostship after the said two years. At the recent petition of the said William, who is chancellor of Archibald, duke of Touraine (containing that before he was presented and instituted to, and before he obtained the said provostship, which is of lay patronage, on its voidance by the death of John de Merton, he obtained and held together for some years the parish churches, also of the patronage of laymen, of Cambuslang and Seton in the dioceses of Glasgow and St. Andrews, and has afterwards, having resigned Cambuslang, held together for some months the said provostship and Seton without dispensation, and still detains them), he is hereby rehabilitated, but is to resign both the provostship and Seton.

The late Benedict XIII granted to him in commendam for life and as long as the Cistercian monastery of Holme in the diocese of Carlisle should remain without the said pope's obedience, the parish church of Kyrkgonzan in the diocese of Glasgow, which was said to be united to the said monastery [see above, p. 67]. Afterwards, upon William's setting forth to the present pope that, taking possession, by virtue of the said commenda, of the said church, after the lapse of some years, he had held and was still holding the fruits etc. to his own uses, and that on account of the wars between England and Scotland the said union, if it existed, was likely to be of small profit to the said monastery, the pope granted to him in commendam anew the said church, to be held by him until the said wars should cease and a lasting peace should be made [above, ibid.]. Subsequently the pope ordered provision to be made to him of a canonry and prebend of Glasgow and the archdeaconry of Teviotdale in that church [above, p. 93], and prolonged the said commenda for five years from the time of his obtaining the archdeaconry, after the expiry of which period the commenda was to cease.
