At his said petition, which added that some assert that the said vicarage was void at the time of the said letters, and is void, not as above, but by the death of Denis Ymigyr, or otherwise, the pope grants to Thady, who is a priest and, by another special dispensation, holds together with the said vicarage the rectory without cure in ecclesiastical fee of the said church, that the said collation and provision shall hold good from the date of these presents, even if the said vicarage, value not exceeding 8 marks, that of the said rectory not exceeding 3, be void by the said death, or in any other way.

Grant as below. It was lately set forth to the pope by prior Robert (sic) and the convent of the Benedictine priory of St. Oswald's, Nostel, in the diocese of York, and the prioress and convent of the priory, immediately belonging to the Roman church, of St. Sixtus, Rome (de Urbe), living under the care and according to the institutes of the Friars Preachers, that a dispute formerly arose between the prior and convent of St. Oswald's, of the one part, and the prioress and convent of St. Sixtus's, of the other part, the latter claiming that the former were bound to pay them a yearly pension of 50 marks sterling on account of the fruits etc. of the parish church of Bamburgh (de Samburgo) in the diocese of Durham, which the said prior and convent hold to their own uses; that at length Master Herman Dwerg, provost of St. Lebuinus's, Deventer, in the diocese of Utrecht, doctor of canon law, papal notary and referendary, acting as proctor of the said prior and convent, made an agreement with the said prioress and convent, to wit, that the said proctor, in lieu of the said pension of 50 marks, which were worth 200 florins, should give to the said prioress and convent the farmhouse (casale), commonly called de salice, situate in Trastevere without the Porta Pertusa (fn. 7) (extra portam Pertuse), formerly belonging to one Paul Stati (or Scati), a Roman citizen, and bought by the said proctor for St. Oswald's, and that for all alleged neglected payments of pensions he should pay the said prioress and convent 3,000 gold florins of the camera, as is contained in a public instrument which the pope has caused to be inserted in other his letters. At the recent petition of [John de Hudresfeld] the present prior and the convent of St. Oswald's, the pope—who at the petition of the said prior Robert (sic) and convent confirmed by his said letters the said agreement, donation, etc.—grants that his said letters and the agreement, donation, etc. contained therein shall hold good as if the said prior's name had been rightly given in the pope's said letters as ‘John [de Hudresfeld]’ and not ‘Robert [de Quixley].’ Ad fut. rei mem. Exigit devocionis sinceritas. (Pe. xxxx. de Casatiis.)
[The pope's other letters, to which he refers above, are those printed in Ripoll, Bullarium Prædicatorum, II, p. 690, after a copy derived ‘ex Archivio Apostolico Lib. cxxxix fol. 269', a register no longer existing in the Vatican Archives, consisting of his confirmation, Ad perp. rei mem. Ex superne majestatis, dated at SS. Apostoli, Rome, 10 Kal. June anno 11 (1428), at the petition of prior Robert (sic) and the convent of St. Oswald's, Nostel, and the prioress and convent of St. Sixtus's, Rome, of the agreement made, as above, by the above Master Herman Dwerg between prior Robert Wyxalcus (sic) and the convent of St. Oswald's and the prioress and convent of St. Sixtus's, and set forth in a public instrument drawn up in the monastery of St. Sixtus and dated in the year of the Nativity 1428, indiction 6, anno 11 Martin V, Tuesday, May 11. Ripoll has the better reading ‘de Bamburgo,’ the probably better form ‘Scati,’ the less good form ‘Portuse’ (which he identifies with the Porta Portese near the Tiber), describes Herman Dwerg throughout as ‘prior’ instead of ‘procurator,’ and has ‘summam trium millium octuaginta sex florenorum auri de camera,’ whereas Reg. 295 has ‘summam trium milium florenorum auri de camera.’ For the above pension of 50 marks see Cal.

7 For the Porta Pertusa, pierced in the Leonine wall on the top of the Vatican hill, and now walled up, see Lanciani, Forma Urbis, sheet 12. It is apparently first mentioned by Biondo da Forli (1388–1463). Roma Ristaurata (the 1558 Italian edition, p 9v), and is conjectured by Stefano Piale, Dissert. Pontif. Accad. di Archeol. IV (Rome, 1831). p. 239, to have been pierced early in the fifteenth century perhaps under John XXIII (1410–1415). Piale states that mention is made of the gate as existing as late as 1550. In this case it must be supposed that advantage was not taken of a grant by Leo X dated March 11, 1515, for Alexander de Neronibus, preceptor of the hospital of Santo Spirito in Sassia, to block up the ‘Porta Pertusa retro basilicam Principis Apostolorum,’ described as being already ruinous and useless, and to open in its stead another gate in the Leonine wall at the adjacent tower (i.e the present observatory), the new gate being given to the hospital, together with the tower and the surrounding ground (vol. 1192 of the Vatican series of Registers, fol. 24).
