Decree as below. On 8 Kal. May anno 1 [1431] the pope made provision to William Turnbul, rector of Hawick in the diocese of Glasgow, M.A., of a canonry of Glasgow and another of Aberdeen, with reservation of as many prebends and of an elective dignity, not major etc., with or without cure, of one of those churches. Subsequently the pope made a constitution giving priority, in the obtaining of benefices in virtue of grants similar to the above, to persons residing in the Roman court over those absent [see Ottenthal, Regulœ Cancellariœ Apostolicœ p. 254, i.e. Reg. Eug. IV, no. 107; cf. p. 217, i.e. Reg. Mart. V, no. 125]. Afterwards the pope sent William from the said court, on business of the pope and the Roman church, to James, king of Scotland and his realm [see above, p. 281], and during his absence a canonry and prebend of Glasgow becoming void by the death of Walter Stuart, he accepted them within the due time in virtue of the said grant, and caused provision to be made to him thereof. At his petition (stating that a number of other clerks, to whom the pope had granted expectative graces under the above date, but who were absent from the said court, have in virtue thereof accepted and caused provision to be made to them of the said canonry and prebend, and even perhaps obtained possession) in order that he may benefit by the said constitution and not suffer by his being sent from the said court by the pope, the pope decrees that he, who is also a bachelor of canon law and of noble race by both parents, should have been and shall be deemed and reputed to have been present in the said court during his said absence. Ad fut. rei mem. Apostolice sedis providencia. (An. and Conilli. | An. xxxx. Undecimo Kal. Aprilis Anno Quarto.de Adria.) [See below, Reg. CCCXXIII, f. 148d.]

Confirmation as below. The masters, doctors, and scholars of the university of Cambridge set forth to Martin V that Honorius I, by letters dated at St. Peter's, Rome, in the year of the Incarnation 624[5], Feb. 7, (fn. 10) amongst other things inhibited, under pain of ipso facto excommunication, any archbishop, bishop, archdeacon, or their officials, from suspending, excommunicating or interdicting any of the said doctors and scholars, or molesting them or their servants, their correction being entrusted to the rector of the said doctors and scholars, with the counsel of the older and sounder members of the university; that Sergius I, by letters dated at the Lateran, in the year of the Incarnation, 699, May 3, (fn. 11) amongst other things decreed that it should be lawful for no archbishop or bishop to suspend, excommunicate or interdict the said university or any of the said doctors and scholars, without the assent or special mandate of the pope; that in the matter of the said inhibition and decree certain ancient university statutes were ordained; that the chancellor, who under the name of ‘chancellor’ held the place of a ‘rector,’ was wont to exercise all ecclesiastical and spiritual jurisdiction in the correction and punishment of excesses of the members of the university, and in the cognisance and decision of causes and matters concerning the said members; and that the originals of the said letters had been lost, either by reason of the lapse of time, more than seven hundred years, or the negligence of their keepers, or otherwise, but that very many copies, of very ancient writing, existed in the archives of the university. (fn. 12) Pope Martin therefore ordered [on July 6, 1430] the prior of Barnwell in the diocese of Ely and John Depyng, canon of Lincoln, residing in the said diocese, or one of them, after the copies of the said letters had been legally exhibited to them, if they found that the said masters, doctors and scholars and the university had been from time immemorial in peaceful possession of the use and exercise of the said ecclesiastical and spiritual jurisdiction, and of the observance of the said inhibition and decree, to confirm to them the same. At the recent petition of the said masters, doctors and scholars—containing that the said prior (the said John having been unable to take part in the execution of the said mandate) found that the said masters etc. and university had been from time immemorial in the said possession, without molestation of any archbishops bishops, archdeacons, and their officials, and that the said archbishops etc. had wholly abstained from the said jurisdiction; and that he confirmed to the said masters, etc. the observance of the said inhibition and decree and the use and exercise of the said jurisdiction—the pope hereby confirms the said prior's confirmation and its consequences. Ad fut. rei mem. Dum attente consideracionis. (An. and M. Pinardi. | An. xxxx. de Adria.)
[Cambridge University Registry contains the present confirmation by pope Eugenius, Martin V's mandate to the prior of Barnwell and John Depyng, the prior's ‘process’ and two fifteenth century copies of the spurious letters of Honorius I and Sergius I (see Luard, in Cambridge Antiquarian Society, vol. III, p. 388, where the date of the letter of Sergius is given as ‘A.D. 689’). Of these documents the letters of Honorius and Sergius are printed in Twyne, Ant. Oxon. p. 60 and p. 77 respectively, and in Caius, De Antiq. Cant. (1574), p. 58 and p. 60 respectively; and the letters of popes Eugenius and Martin, and the prior of Barnwell's ‘process’ are printed in [John Nichols], History and Antiquities of Barnwell Abbey (in his Bibliotheca Topographica Britannica).

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual Italian description: ‘Eugenio IV. 1433. Anno 3. Lib. 49.’ A flyleaf has a number of modern notes, e.g. ‘Vidipro R[everenda] C[amera] A[postolica] Hib. Ang.’ A contemporary fragment of paper has ‘Secundus de diuersis formis et,’ ‘Rubricatus e[st]’ and ‘Johannes.’ On the bottom edge of the volume is the contemporary description ‘Secundus de diuersis formis et regularibus anno iiio Eugenii pape iiiiti .’
2 The top portions of the first few leaves have been torn off.
3 Le Neve—Hardy, Fasti, I, p. 579, has ‘Christopher Knott.’
4 The clause ‘provided that he do not hold together two parish churches, or two perpetual vicarages, or a parish church and a perpetual vicarage.’ and clauses to the like effect which occur passim in dispensations similar to the above are omitted here, as elsewhere, in the Calendar.
5 The subscription in the right hand margin is torn off.
6 Archidiacano Barkes. The word ‘Barkes’ is cancelled twice, and corrected in the margin to ‘Barkecerie,’ without note.
7 In the date, ‘Rome apud Sanctum Grisogonum is cancelled, but not corrected in the margin.
8 The other usual subscription in the margin is wanting.
9 Corrected from ‘Aprilis’ by A[ndrea]s [de Adria].
10 'sub data Rome apud Sanctum Petrum Anno ab Incarnatione domini Sexcentesimo vicesimo quarto, die septima mensis Februarii,’ i.e. before the death of Pope Honorius's predecessor, Boniface V, who was buried Oct. 25, 625, Honorius being consecrated pope on the following Nov. 3 (Jaffé, Regesta, ed. Wattenbach etc. I. p. 223). The year of the Incarnation did not begin to be an element in the date of papal privileges before the latter part of the tenth century (Giry, Diplomatique, p. 672), nor did the place whence they emanated begin to be mentioned until after the middle of the eleventh (ibid., p. 675).
11 Sub data Laterani anno ab (this word is added in the margin by An[dreas de Adria]) Incarnatione huiusmodi sexcentesimo nonagesimo nono die tercia mensis Maii.’ The year is this time better chosen, Sergius I having in fact been pope from 687 to 701 (Jaffé, op. cit. I, p. 244).
12 The above petition of the university, granted by Martin V under date SS. Apostoli, Rome, Prid. Non. Julii anno, 13 (July 6, 1430) is registered in vol. 253 of the Registers of Petitions, f. 53. It adds nothing to what is related above.
