5 Id. March.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 3.)
To the bishop of Glasgow, the abbot of Dunfermelyne in the diocese of St. Andrews and the dean of Dunkeld. Decree etc. as below. Martin V granted on 9 Kal. Oct. anno 13 [1430] collation and assignment to Richard Creyche, canon of Dunkeld, I.U.D., out of consideration for and at the petition of James, king of Scots, whose counsellor he was, of the archdeaconry of St. Andrews, a non-major non-elective dignity with cure, void by the death extra curiam of Thomas Senescalli, value not exceeding 100l. sterling (that of the canonry and prebend of Stobo in Glasgow, provision of which the said pope had intended to make to the said Richard on the above day, not exceeding 80l. sterling), whether the said archdeaconry were void as stated or in any other way, and whether it were specially reserved, or were generally reserved because the said Thomas had been a papal chaplain, and notwithstanding that the said Richard held the parish church of Erole in the diocese of St. Andrews and a canonry and prebend of Dunkeld, value not exceeding 100l. and 20l. sterling respectively, the former of which he was to resign on obtaining the said archdeaconry. The pope hereby decrees etc., as above, p. 322, and for the same reason, in regard to the letters concerning the said archdeaconry, and orders the above three to collate and assign it to the above Richard. Racioni etc. (An. and N. Volrat. | An. xxviii. Sexto Kal. Octobris Anno Secundo. de Adria.)
3 Non. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 6.)
To the bishop of Glasgow. Mandate as below. It has been set forth this day to the pope on behalf of Walter Stewart, canon of Glasgow, bachelor of canon law, that on the voidance of the deanery of Moray, a major dignity, by the death of John de Duglas, the chapter, perhaps in ignorance of Martin V's reservation of all major cathedral dignities, elected the said Walter, who, then holding by a papal dispensation the parish church of Tanados (fn. 2) in the diocese of St. Andrews and the treasurership of Dunkeld, a dignity, had the election confirmed by Columba, bishop of Moray, and in virtue of the said election and confirmation obtained possession, holding together for more than a month the said deanery, parish church and treasurership, and resigning the latter to the said bishop in exchange for the right possessed in the said deanery by Thomas Archier, clerk, of the diocese of Brechin, to whom provision thereof, void as above, had been made by papal authority. The said Walter has continued to hold the said deanery and church for more than two years against ‘Execrabilis,’ on account of which the pope has rehabilitated him, requiring him to resign both deanery and church [above, p. 379]. The said deanery being therefore still void as above, and still reserved, the pope orders the above bishop to collate and assign to the said Walter, after he has duly resigned them, the said deanery, with cure and value not exceeding 60l. sterling, and the said church, the value of which and of his canonries and prebends of Barlanerk in Glasgow and Balhelbi in Aberdeen does not exceed 120l. sterling. He is hereby dispensed to receive the said deanery and church and with them one other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, and to hold for five years three, and for life two incompatible benefices, and to resign all, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases.Dignum arbitramur. (An. and H. Raiscop. | An. lxx. Octavo Kal. Decembris Anno Primo, de Adria.)

Nov.anno 12 [1429] to him (who was also a bachelor of canon law, had received the degree of M.A. at Paris, was a kinsman of divers earls and barons of the realm of Scotland, had followed the Roman court for nine years, and for ten years had studied in divers universities) of the deanery of Aberdeen, a major elective dignity with cure, value not exceeding 60l. sterling (upon which a yearly pension of 20l. sterling was reserved to Ingram Lindesay, priest, of the diocese of Glasgow), void at the apostolic see, and therefore reserved, by the death there of James Scrymgrouc (rectius Scrymgeour), whether it were so void, or were void by the death of Nicholas Tunnok in the Roman court, or were void in any other way; notwithstanding that he—who had been lately successively dispensed by papal authority, (i) when holding inter alia the parish church of Cummok in the said diocese and having had provision ordered to be made to him by the said authority of the deanery of Glasgow, a major elective dignity with cure, to hold together for life the said deanery and church, or the said deanery and any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible therewith, even if it were a dignity etc., even elective and with cure, or another parish church, and to resign the said deanery and church, or the deanery or such other benefice, simply or for exchange, and hold instead two other benefices incompatible with one another [see Cal. Lett. VII, p. 258], (ii) provision having been ordered to be made to him by the said authority of the parish church of Kirkk[i]ner in the diocese of Whiteherne, to hold together for five years the said deanery of Glasgow and the said two churches, and to resign meanwhile Kirkk[i]ner, simply or for exchange, and receive instead an incompatible benefice and hold the same together with two of the said deanery, church of Cummok and incompatible benefices [ibid., p. 425]—was holding the said churches of Cummok and Kirkk[i]ner, value together not exceeding 120l. sterling, and the chapel without cure of St. Thomas the Martyr without the walls of Glasgow and a canonry and the prebend called the vicarage of the church of Brechin, that provision had been lately made to him of a canonry of Glasgow and the prebend called ‘Glasgoro (sic) Primo’ and of the hospital, also without cure, of Rothfen in the diocese of Aberdeen, wont to be assigned as a perpetual benefice to secular clerks, and that he was litigating about the said deanery of Glasgow, of which he was in possession, value not exceeding 8l., 20l., 60l., 40l. and 60l. sterling; pope Martin requiring, as the said David offered, that as soon as he obtained the said deanery of Aberdeen he should resign that of Glasgow, if he meanwhile won it, or the said suit and all his right in or to the said deanery.
