De Exhibitis

1427.
6 Id. Jan.
SS. Apostoli, Rome.
(f. 83d.)
To the bishops of Norwich and London, and the archdeacon of Chichester. Mandate as below. The petition of John Thome, perpetual vicar of Potter Heygham in the diocese of Norwich, contained that although from time immemorial the tithes of fish caught in the waters or rivers within the parish bounds have belonged to the vicar, John Bere of Hikelyng, layman, of the said diocese, has for some years refused to give to the said vicar the tithes of fish caught by him in certain of the said waters or rivers; that the said vicar brought him, not by papal delegation, before the official of Norwich, who, after proceeding as far as and including a conclusion, remitted the cause to the examination of the official of the court of Canterbury, who gave a definitive sentence condemning Bere to pay the tithes for past years or 10s. for each of those years, and to pay the said tithes in future, and also condemning him in costs; and that upon Bere's appeal to the apostolic see the pope, at the said vicar's instance, gave commission to Master Hartung de Cappel, papal chaplain and auditor, who condemned Bere, subsequently fixing the costs to be paid by him at 14 gold florins of the camera. At the said petition, which added that the said vicar fears lest Bere will not obey the proceedings to be taken in virtue of these presents, the pope orders the above three to execute the sentence of the said auditor, causing satisfaction to be made to the said vicar in respect of the said 14 florins, and to proceed by censure, invocation of the secular arm, etc. Exhibita nobis. (Pe. Gratis pro deo. de Casatiis.)
1426.
3 Non. Dec.
SS. Apostoli, Rome.
(f. 104.)
To the official of Clonfert. Mandate as below. Lately, on learning that the rectory of Athnaryg in the diocese of Tuam, of the patronage of laymen, was so long void by the death of Milerus de Bremycheam that its collation had lapsed to the apostolic see, the pope [above, p. 397] ordered the bishop of Kilmacduagh to summon William de Bremycheam (also written Bremicheam), priest, of the said diocese (who had unduly detained possession for more than four years, although under disability because against ‘Execrabilis’ he had held certain incompatible benefices without dispensation, even before obtaining the said rectory), and if he found that the rectory was void in the way stated or in any other way, to collate and assign it to William Ocorcrayn, canon of Kilmacduagh, who fearing Bremycheam's power had no hope of obtaining justice in the city and diocese of Tuam. At Ocorcrayn's petition (containing that although John, bishop of Kilmacduagh, proceeded, short of a conclusion, he without reasonable cause proceeded no further, and remitted the cause to the examination of the apostolic see) the pope orders the above official to resume the cause at the stage at which the said bishop left it, and to execute the pope's said mandate. Dudum per nos accepto.
5 Id. Dec.
SS. Apostoli, Rome.
(f. 108.) (fn. 2)
To the bishop of Clogher. Mandate to collate and assign to Andrew Macbradaych, dean of the rural deanery of Drumleathan in the diocese of Kilmore, the still void perpetual benefice called the rectory of Kedye in the said diocese, without cure, value not exceeding 8 marks, collation and provision of which, on its voidance by the deprivation by the late Nicholas, bishop of Kilmore, of the late John Ossiredean, clerk, the said bishop made to Andrew, who in virtue thereof obtained posses- sion, but now doubts whether the said collation and provision hold good. The collation is to be made whether the said benefice became void as stated, or by the free resignation of the said Ossiredean made subsequently to John, archbishop of Armagh, the metropolitan, and accepted by the said archbishop during voidance of the see of Kilmore, or by the death of the said Ossiredean, or in any other way; notwithstanding that Andrew holds the said deanery and the perpetual benefice called the rectory of Bali Mcancobayl in the said diocese, without cure, the value of both not exceeding 4 marks. Dignum etc. (Ja. xxi. Terciodecimo Kal. Januarii Anno Decimo. de Cerretanis. [See above, p. 483, and. Cal. Lett. VI, p. 121.]

The recent petition of John Erith, perpetual vicar of Crost (sic) in the diocese of Lincoln, value not exceeding 30l. sterling, contained that he was formerly presented, by one layman, and Robert Brown, [now] rector of Westerkele in the said diocese, by another layman, to Westerkele the patronage of which belongs in turn to the said laymen and to the Benedictine abbot of Crowland, that the presentation of John was not admitted by bishop Richard, and that Robert was instituted and obtained possession; that to appease the dissension which the said presentations threatened to arouse between the said laymen, and to compensate John for the labour and expense which he had incurred in the prosecution of the presentation which had been made in his favour, Robert consented, with the consent of the said laymen, but not of the said abbot, that John should receive a life pension of 10l. sterling from the fruits etc. of Westerkele. The pope therefore orders the above three, after satisfying themselves as to the consent of the said Robert and laymen, to cause the said pension to be paid for life to John by Robert and his successors.
