To the abbot of St. Mary's, Easdara, in the diocese of Achonry, and Donald Macdonnchaid and Dermit Macgacdagan, canons of Achonry. Mandate as below. Lately the pope (upon learning that the rectoria parrochialis in terris de Minbrisg alias Castri de Sligrach sive inter duos pontes, in the diocese of Elphin, was void because Bernard Macdonnchaid, formerly rector in the said lands, had entered and made his profession in the Friars Preachers’ house of Sligrach in the said diocese; and upon its being set forth to him by the Premonstratensian abbot and convent of Holy Trinity, Lachque (sic), in the said diocese, that a number of lay persons were usurping the fruits etc. of the said rectory, and that the means of the said monastery were insufficient for the maintenance of the abbot and convent) ordered, at the petition of the said abbot and convent, who asserted that the fruits etc. of the said rectory and monastery did not exceed 20 and 40 marks respectively, the said rectory to be appropriated to the said monastery [above, p. 52]. At the petition of Bernard Occoneil, clerk, of the said diocese (containing that the said letters and the consequent appropriation, under pretext of which the said abbot and convent have detained possession of the said rectory for about three years, are surreptitious and null because the fruits etc. of the said monastery exceed 50 marks; whilst also at the time of the impetration of the said mandate the said rectory was commonly said to be of the Hospitallers’ house of Killmaighnean in the diocese of Dublin; and that a number of lay persons are detaining its fruits) the pope orders the above to summon the said abbot and convent, whom the said Bernard cannot safely meet within the city and diocese of Elphin, and if they find the facts to be as stated, to decree the said mandate and appropriation surreptitious and null, and in that event to collate and assign the said rectory, value not exceeeding 20 marks, as above, to Bernard. Vite etc. (An. xxiiii. Quartodecimo Kal. Februarii Anno Quartodecimo. de Adria.) [See also above, pp. 155, 156, 192.]

His recent petition contained that Donald Post, priest, of the diocese of St. Andrews, in his long cause in the apostolic palace between him and the above John, Thomas Ihong, John Lawson and Thomas Mirton, priests, about the perpetual vicarage of Hadington in the said diocese (provision of which was made to the said Donald, and ordered to be made to Boumacar, in each case by papal authority, on its voidance by the death of Simon Breg; each of the above Thomas Ihong, John Lawson and Thomas Mirton falsely asserting that it lawfully belonged to himself, and the said Thomas Mirton unduly detaining possession), obtained a definitive sentence, hitherto unexecuted, by which the vicarage was adjudged to him, and perpetual silence imposed on Boumacar and the above Thomas Ihong, John Lawson and Thomas Mirton, and the last named removed. Seeing that the said vicarage has become void at the apostolic see, and therefore reserved, by the resignation of the above Donald, without having had possession, made to the pope this day by John Nicolai, proctor of the said causes and Donald's proctor specially appointed for the resignation, the pope hereby makes collation and provision thereof, value not exceeding 54l. sterling, to the above Boumacar, whether void as stated, or in any other way; notwithstanding that he holds the parish church of Munyabro in the diocese of Glasgow, of the patronage of laymen, value not exceeding 20l. sterling, and that the pope lately dispensed him to hold for five years with Munyabro the perpetual vicarage of Falkirk (Varie capelle) in the said diocese [of St. Andrews], about which he was litigating in the Roman court, if he won it, or one other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible with Munyabro.
