(f. 192d.)
To Robert Frend', canon of Houeden in the diocese of York. Declaration, as below. It was recently set forth by him to the pope that after he, then a subdeacon, had received indult by authority of the ordinary not to be bound, for a certain number of years, then expressed, whilst studying letters at an university, to be ordained priest on account of his parish church of Waltham in Lyndesay in the diocese of Lincoln, of the patronage of laymen, he, who was then and had for several years been in the service of Thomas, bishop of Durham, continued to be not promoted to the priesthood for more than a year after having obtained peaceable possession of the said church, relying on the common belief (communi. . reputacioni inherens) of those parts by which the holders of benefices there, even with cure and of the patronage of laymen, are said to be excused from taking orders whilst in the service of the said laymen, the said bishop being chancellor of the late king Henry, patron of the said church in virtue of his duchy of Lancaster; and that John Sadyngton, priest, of the said diocese, on the strength of (innitentes) a lay presentation of himself to the said church, made on account of Robert's said non-promotion, although at the time when the said presentation was made there was, for certain reasons, no ground for it, even if by reason of such non-promotion the church ought to have been deemed to be void, has endeavoured and endeavours to molest Robert in regard to the said church, on account of which Robert has appealed to the apostolic see. The pope hereby declares that Robert, who is a deacon, and holds besides the said church the canonry and prebend of Saltmersshe in Houeden, value not exceeding 52 and 20 marks respectively, could and can lawfully hold the said church, and that it ought not to have been and ought not to be deemed void by the fact that he has not yet been ordained priest, the reason of his non-promotion having been, not malice, but simplicity and the said indult and common belief (illa communis assercio siue reputacio). Merentur tibi suffragantia.

Declaration etc. as below. Lately, on the occasion of the provision to the see of Bayeux of Nicholas [Habart] the pope, seeing that John du Houme, dean of Bayeux, licentiate of civil law by examination and bachelor of canon law, who had been elected bishop by the chapter, had undergone great expense in seeking confirmation of his election, and that the late king Henry had petitioned the pope on behalf of his provision, reserved and ordered to be collated and assigned to John the canonries and prebends of Coutances and Cambrai which bishop Nicholas was holding at the time of his said provision, and which were to become void by his consecration, it being expressed in the pope's letters that the fruits etc. of the said canonries and prebends did not exceed 50l. of petits tournois. Seeing that, as the pope has recently learned, a number of others, who pretend that the said fruits etc. exceed the above value, are said to have obtained from the pope, after John's said grant, divers grants of the same canonries and prebends, even void or to become void in the aforesaid way, on the ground of which they are endeavouring to exclude John from the said grant and from the said canonries and prebends, which he holds by virtue of the pope's said grant, and are trying to molest him, having cited him in the apostolic palace, the pope, motu proprio, calls up to himself all such suits instituted within or without the Roman court, and extinguishes them, declares that his intention was and is for John to have provision of the said canonries and prebends, whatsoever their value might be, and annuls all grants concerning them made to John's prejudice. Ad fut. rei mem. Cum interdum contingat. (Ja. xxx. Quarto Non. Augusti Anno Octauo. de Cerretanis.) [The provision to Nicholas Habart, dated Nov. 27, 1420, occurs in Reg. Lat. CCXVII, f. 188, where the reading is Johannes du (not de, as Eubel, Hierarchia) Homme or Homine. The form ‘Homme’ occurs in Reg. Lat. CCLII, f. 143d, where the pope addresses a letter to ‘John du Homme, canon of Coutances.’ He is addressed as ‘Johannes du Houme’ in Reg. Lat. CCLIV, f. 11d, where he desires to exchange his canonry and prebend of Cambrai for Master John Pinchon's canonry and prebend of Avranches. See also below, Reg. CCLI, f. 56.]
