12 By giving in the above letter, dated 12 July, 1425, the title of archbishop of York to John Kempe, the pope apparently anticipates Kempe's translation from London, which did not take place until July 20. Eubel, Hierarchia, under ‘Eboracen', gives the date as July 30, and refers to Arm. XII, tom 121 (now 121 A', p. 190. A summary list of provisions and translations is there given, all under date 1425, die Veneris xiii Kal Augusti, namely of the sees of Orense and Tuy in Spain. Sodor, Noyon, Lincoln, York, London, Norwich and Chichester. In the case of Orense, Tuy and Noyon, for which he found the bulls in extenso in the Lateran Registers, Eubel has the correct date. July 20, and does not refer to Arm. XII, tom 121 In the case of Sodor, Lincoln, York, London and Norwich he refers only to Arm. XII, tom 121, and in each case gives an incorrect date, July 30. The entry in regard to York is: Eadem die Joannes episcopus Londoniensis translatus est ad dictam ecclesiam Eboracensem vacantem ut supra (i.e. by the translation on the same day of Richard Fleming, under the style of archbishop of York, back to Lincoln). For Chichester Eubel refers to the bull in the Lateran Register, liber 122 (i.e. Reg. CCLXIV, below). f. 202, gives the date 1426, Feb. 27 (cf. Le Neve), and adds’ cfr. Arm. XII, 121, p. 190.’ See also above, p. 387.
