De Beneficiis Vacantibus

1429.
7 Kal. Nov.
Prope SS. Apostoli, (fn. 2)
Rome.
(f. 76.)
To the dean and John Ogubuin and Donald Ocathan, canons, of Raphoe. Mandate to collate and assign to Gofredus Macdalaidh sive Macdeganaith, priest, of the diocese of Raphoe, who lately received papal dispensation, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, the rectory of Congbail in the said diocese, value not exceeding 8 marks. so long void by the death of John Macgillabridy that its collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Roger Macungail, priest, of the said diocese, who is to be summoned and removed, has unduly detained possession for more than two years after the said lapse, without any papal provision; whether it became void as stated, or by the resignation of Nicholas Megmeallgkssa (sic), or otherwise, and notwithstanding that Gofredus is litigating in the apostolic palace about the rectory of Tulachfirgna in the said diocese, value not exceeding 6 marks, of which he is in possession, and with which he is hereby dispensed to hold that of Conghail (sic) for ten years. Vite etc. (Pe. xvi. Secundo Non. Februarii Anno Tertiodecimo de Casatiis.) [See Cal.Lett. VII, p. 403, and above, p. 49.]

De Exhibitis

(f. 157.)
To the bishop of Adria, the dean of Waterford and the precentor of Lismore. Mandate as below. On the voidance of the deanery of Ossory, a major dignity, by the death of John Ocuyrke, the pope made provision thereof, reserved under his general reservation of major dignities in cathedral churches, to Nicholas Haket, treasurer of Cashel [see Cal. Lett., p. 164]. Subsequently, as the petition of the said Nicholas contained, he took possession of the deanery, but without the free exercise of its cure and the taking of its fruits, and, fearing and wishing to avoid the penalties contained in certain royal statutes, which forbid anyone to obtain from the apostolic see provision of benefices, under pain of imprisonment and loss of all goods and other penalties, he consented to an election made in his favour by the chapter (the deanery being alleged to be void by the free resignation to [the late] Denis, then bishop of Ossory, of Walter Stantoun, who had been elected by the chapter, on voidance by the said death, after and against the said general reservation) and had it confirmed by the said bishop, under pretext of which election and confirmation he obtained peaceable possession, publicly recognizing that he had obtained the deanery in virtue thereof and not by papal provision, so that he doubts whether in consequence the deanery be not still void. The pope therefore orders the above three to collate and assign to Nicholas, who says that he is of noble race and has studied canon and civil law for very many years in the university of Oxford, the said deanery, with cure and elective, value not exceeding 40 marks, whether it became void in the way stated or in any other way, or be still void by the death of Thomas Waffyrtoun, or by the resignation of Robert Poer or any other, etc.; notwithstanding that Nicholas—whom the pope lately dispensed to hold the treasurership of Cashel, a non-major nonelective dignity with cure, which he had been bound to resign upon obtaining possession of the deanery, for seven years therewith or with any other incompatible benefice, which period, after Nicholas had obtained the deanery in virtue of the first-named letters and had been despoiled of the treasurership, the pope prolonged before its expiry by ten years more, at the same time dispensing him to resign during the said ten years both deanery and treasurership, simply or for exchange, and hold instead two similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices—holds a canonry of Lismore and the prebend of Kyltagayn and Domachmore, and that the pope lately granted him provision of a canonry of Dublin and the prebend of Glynmethan, value altogether not exceeding 80 marks. Vite etc. (An. xxviii. Kal. Aprilis Anno Terciodecimo. de Adria.)

De Regularibus

2 Non. Nov.
Prope SS. Apostoli,
Rome.
(f. 199d.)
To the bishop of Ely. Mandate as below. Lately, upon its being set forth to the pope by the visitor and reformer and abbots of the Premonstratensian monasteries in England that by immemorial custom there had been diversity in the habit worn, some wearing surplices or rochets under their cappe, others not, the pope, at the petition of the said visitor and reformer [and] abbots, ordered the bishop of Rochester to remedy the said diversity and to ordain that all abbots, provosts, priors, deans and canons of the said monasteries and order, present and future, should be bound to wear within and without their monasteries, after the manner of the canons regular of St. Augustine, under whose rule live the said abbots etc., linen rochets or surplices under their cappe, and might also wear hoods and caps (quodque eciam capiciis et amictibus atque birretis seu pilleis integris uti possent), preserving, however, the wonted colour of their habit. The recent petition of Henry, abbot of Newhous, the other of (alterius ex …) the said (sic) visitors and reformers, and of the greater part of the said abbots etc. contained that John, bishop of Rochester, proceeding at the instance of John, abbot of Begham in the diocese of Chichester, one of (unius ex …) the said visitors and reformers, to the execution of the said letters, without summoning the said Henry, abbot and visitor and reformer, nor the greater part of the said abbots etc., ordained that all abbots etc. of the order in England might wear and should be bound to wear etc. as above. At the said petition (adding that the said Henry, abbot and visitor and reformer, and the greater part of the said abbots etc. did not consent to the impetration of the pope's said letters, but on the contrary opposed it, and moreover, as soon as they heard of bishop John's ordinances, appealed to the apostolic see; and asserting that the said ordinances tend to the subversion of the primeval institution of the order, and that the said change from the primeval habit is the cause of very grave scandal, and that the devotion of the people is so much turned away from the order that the founders of the monasteries threaten that, if the said abbots, etc. abandon their primeval habit, they will take away their possessions) the pope orders the above bishops to summon the said visitors and reformers and abbots etc., and if he find the facts to be as stated, to annul the pope's own letters and the letters and ordinances of the said bishop, and to restore the said visitors and reformers, abbots etc. to the state in which they were before they emanated.
