To Nemeas Obeollayn, canon of Elphin. Mandate to collate and assign to Odo Micdiarmada, clerk, of the diocese of Elphin, the still void perpetual vicarage, value not exceeding 8 marks, of Archarna in the said diocese, which he formerly obtained by collation and provision, by ordinary authority, of bishop John, who had deprived P[h]ilip Macabreichum, Odo now doubting whether the said collation and provision hold good; notwithstanding that the pope lately ordered provision to be made to Odo of the archdeaconry of Elphin, a non-major dignity, about which he is litigating in those parts, which, and all right thereto, he is to resign, upon obtaining the said vicarage.

To the archbishop of Dublin and the bishops of Adria and Meath. Mandate as below. The petition of Philip Stoyl, Augustinian prior of St. Mary, Conall, in the diocese of Kildare, contained that although he formerly obtained the said priory by papal authority on its voidance by the death of Robert [Grewys, Cal. Lett. VI, pp. 314, 437], Maurice Modewayt, Augustinian canon of St. Wolstan's in the diocese of Dublin, claimed it and intruded himself, and unduly detains possession, taking the fruits; that the pope committed Philip's appeal to the apostolic see, at his instance, to Master Peter Nardi, papal chaplain and auditor, who removed Maurice and restored Philip, condemning Maurice in fruits taken and in costs; that Maurice appealed to the said see, and that at the instance of Philip, who asserted that the said appeal was abandoned (deserta), the pope committed the céuse of the abandonment of Maurice's said appeal to Master John Walling, papal chaplain and auditor, who declared the said appeal from the sentence of Master Peter to have been and to be abandoned, and condemned Maurice in the further costs, the two sets of costs being assessed by Masters Peter and John at 27 and 8 florins of gold of the camera respectively. At the said petition, which added that Philip doubts whether Maurice will obey sentences and processes, the pope orders the above three to execute them, restore Philip to possession and remove Maurice, and cause satisfaction to be made to Philip in respect of the said fruits and costs, invoking the aid of the secular arm, etc. Exhibita nobis.

The collation is to be made whether the precentorship be void in the way stated, or because Alexander de Suthirland held it for more than a year without being ordained priest, or in any other way.

To the bishops of Alet and Aberdeen (Alberdonen.), and the abbot of Lindores (de Lundoris) in the diocese of St. Andrews. Mandate as below. The petition of Gilbert Forstar, archdeacon of Brechin, contained that he formerly had provision made to him of and obtained the said archdeaconry on its voidance by the death of David de Idur, in virtue of letters of the present pope, but that Richard de Trag, priest, of the diocese of St. Andrews, opposed and prevented Gilbert's peaceable possession; that Gilbert's appeal to the apostolic see etc. was, at his instance, committed by the pope to Master Julian de Cesarinis, papal chaplain and auditor-general of causes of the court of the papal camera, before whom appeared as Gilbert's proctor Master Thomas de Lanczenberg, who set forth that Richard had usurped possession and had taken the fruits for two years; and that the said auditor adjudged the archdeaconry to Gilbert, imposing perpetual silence on Richard, condemning him to restore the said fruits or 50 marks of the money of Scotland for each of the said years, and condemning him in costs, which he assessed at 50 gold florins of the camera. At the said petition, which added that Gilbert fears that whilst the cause has been pending others have intruded themselves or may do so, the pope orders the above to execute the said auditor's decision, inducting Gilbert and removing Richard, etc., and to execute the same equally against any other intruders.

At the said petition, adding that Henry fears lest the said William, to whom after his said resignation a yearly life pension was assigned from the fruits etc. of the monastery, will not obey the said sentences of Masters John and Cunczo nor the proceedings to be taken in virtue of these presents, the pope orders the above to proceed to execution, publishing the said sentences, and to cause satisfaction to be made to Henry in respect of the said costs, which are to be deducted from the said pension, invoking the aid of the secular arm, etc. Exhibita nobis.
