To John, archbishop of Rouen. Faculty as below. Lewis, bishop of Térouane (Morinen.), chancellor of France and lieutenant of John, duke of Bedford, regent of France, and by him placed in the government of the realm during his own absence, and the members of the great royal council at Paris have set forth to the pope that Thomas de Monteacuto, earl of Salisbury, when formerly on his way back to England from a visit to the Lord's Sepulchre, fell grievously ill and made a vow to revisit, if cured, the said sepulchre, without saying when; that afterwards, when restored to health and being in a certain battle [? Crevant, July, 1423], he confirmed and repeated the said vow; that although he made two attempts to fulfil his vow, nevertheless, being a vassal of Henry, king of England, he has been prevented by authority of the said king; and that when recently he made a third attempt to fulfil his said vows and, rejecting the persuasions of the said chancellor and other members of the said great council, would have set out, they repeated to him the oaths of fealty which he had taken to the said king, asserting that he could and ought not to absent himself from the service of the king without the king's express leave. The pope therefore grants faculty to the above archbishop to commute the said oaths into other works of piety. Honestis singulorum votis. (Pe. Gratis de mandato domini nostri pape. de Casatiis.)

The duke has set forth to the pope that he often has to go to divers regions and parts and stay there for some time, and sometimes has to exercise the government of France, and that in the said parts, both as regards the observance of fasts and as regards abstinence from eating flesh, not however the abstinence enjoined by the church, various rites and customs are observed, and has requested the pope's advice as to what he ought to do in order that he may not err. The pope replies that he shall conform in respect of the said fasts and abstinence to the custom of the country in which he may be, unless on account of his health or safety he cannot do so, or unless he thinks fit to act otherwise, a matter which the pope leaves to his conscience. Eximie deuocionis integritas. (Pe. Gratis etc. as in the preceding.)
Ibid. To Anne, wife of John, duke of Bedford. Indult to eat milkmeats (lacticiniis uti) during Lent and on other days on which, according to the custom of the country in which she is living for the time being, the eating of milkmeats is abstained from.

The pope lately ordered provision to be made to him of the canonry and prebend of Iniskahid in Killaloe, on their voidance by the resignation of William Ihanlly to bishop Donatus, whether they became void as stated, or because Roderick Macraith, now an Augustinian canon of SS. Peter and Paul's, Clar alias de Forgio, in the diocese of Killaloe, to whom provision had been made by papal authority [see above, p. 50], made his profession as a canon of the said monastery. At the recent petition of Nemeas, containing that although the said Roderick has now made the said profession, he had not done so at the time of the pope's said mandate of provision, and that he doubts whether the said canonry and prebend, of which he obtained possession in virtue of the said mandate, be not still void by the said profession, the pope hereby grants that his said letters and the proceedings taken under them shall hold good from the present date, even if the said canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 30 marks, be void by the said profession or in any other way.

To the bishop of Ely. Mandate as below.

The pope orders the above bishop, if he find the facts to be as stated, to grant to the parishioners that they may in the said chapels hear mass and other divine offices by the said chaplains and receive from them the said sacraments, and that the said chaplains may freely administer to them the same; saving the right of the parish church and of any other.

To Peter, bishop of Alet, residing in the Roman court. Mandate, at the recent petition of John Walsche, clerk, of the diocese of Cloyne, who has studied canon and civil law for several years at Oxford—containing that although he formerly, after having received papal dispensation, as the son of an Augustinian canon in priest's orders and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders, and hold a benefice even with cure, obtained by papal authority the canonry and prebend with cure of Balaghath in Cloyne, void by the resignation of Henry Norreys [cf. above, p. 51, f. 189], made before John Pellyn, clerk, of the diocese of Emly, notary public, and witnesses, and admitted by the pope, nevertheless after he had thus obtained them, Richard More, priest, of the diocese of Ardfert, alleging that they belonged to him under pretext of papal letters [see ibid., f. 240d], brought John before the executor of the said letters, and that the cause being submitted to arbitration it was arranged that in order to avoid litigation John should pay Richard a certain sum, and that Richard should give up all claim, both of which having been done, John held possession for more than a year without having himself ordained priest, and without dispensation—to absolve John from excommunication incurred, enjoining a salutary penance. and to rehabilitate him. John is to resign. Sedes apostolica, pia mater.
Ibid.
(f. 186.)
To the bishops of Alet and Cork, and the prior of St. Thomas the Martyr's, Buttevant (de Botonia), in the diocese of Cloyne.

(f. 211d.)
Decree etc. as below. The pope lately [above, p. 243] made provision to Nicholas Tunock, dean of Aberdeen, M.A., of the said deanery, to which are annexed a canonry and prebend of the said church, and which, previously reserved, became void by the death at Rome whilst the pope had transferred the Roman court thence to Tivoli, of Patrick de Spal[d]ing, a member of the papal court and also a papal referendary, dispensing Nicholas to hold for three years therewith his parish church of Furby in the diocese of Aberdeen, with the usual condition of exchanging meanwhile, or of thereafter resigning Furby. Subsequently [above, p. 297], upon Nicholas setting forth to the pope that he doubted whether the deanery did not become void otherwise than as stated above, and was not still void, the pope granted to him (who was still holding the said church, and to whom the pope previously granted provision of a canonry of Dunkeld and another of Moray, with reservation of as many prebends) that the said first letters should hold good from the date of this last grant, even if the said deanery, a major elective dignity with cure, were still void in the way stated above, or by the death of Richard Militis on his way back from the Roman court within two days’ journey therefrom, or otherwise. At Nicholas's recent petition, containing that some persons (assert- ing that the aforesaid letters are surreptitious and invalid because they did not mention that the said parish church is asserted to be of the patronage of laymen, and because they did not mention that a yearly pension of 20l. sterling had been assigned by the pope from the fruits etc. of the deanery, with Nicholas's consent, to Edward de Lawedie (sic), rector of Southack in the diocese of Glasgow, M.A., and also because Nicholas did not cause the last named letters to be expedited within the time appointed in the ordinances lately put forth by the present pope about the time of expediting new provisions [see Ottenthal, Regulæ Cancell. Apost., pp. 204 and 205, No. 86 of the Regulæ Martini V]) have impetrated the said deanery from the pope, and that he therefore fears litigation or other molestation, the pope—considering that the mention of the said patronage would not have prevented him from granting the said dispensation, and that there was no need, in accordance with the said constitution, to mention in the said later letters the grant of the said pension, inasmuch as it was specially mentioned in the earlier petition by which the pope made the provision of the deanery to Nicholas, and that Nicholas was not bound to cause the last named letters to be expedited within the said time—hereby decrees and declares that the aforesaid letters hold good from their respective dates, as if in the first letters the patronage of laymen, and in the later ones the said pension had been specially mentioned, and as if Nicholas had caused the last named letters to be expedited within the time appointed by the said ordinance; and decrees to have been and to be invalid and null, and hereby annuls, all impetrations etc. of the said deanery obtained by others to Nicholas's prejudice. Ad fut. rei mem. Romanus pontifex pacis et justicie. (Pe. xxxx. Id. Octobris Anno Nono. de Casatiis.) [See also above, pp. 262 and 404.]
