The recent petition of Hugh Kenedy, a Friar Preacher, contained that when in or about his seventeenth year he was entrusted by his parents to some friars in the Friars Preachers’ monastery at Ayre in the diocese of Glasgow, in order that they might teach him grammar; that, in the hope of benefiting themselves and their order, they induced and circumvented him with many blandishments and deceptive words, so that without and against the knowledge and assent of his said parents and of his friends and kinsmen he entered the said monastery and received the habit; that soon afterwards the said friars (fearing, as is believed, lest the said deceptions should come to the knowledge of the said parents etc., who were and are of the stock of king James and his kinsmen, and powerful and great, and lest Hugh should be recalled from the said monastery and taken from their hands) transferred him to England; that after he had dwelt there for two years and more and had worn the said habit, the said friars by many importunate suggestions and gentle words impelled him so much that in the said realm, in a certain place of the order where he was then living, he made his profession and was promoted to the orders of subdeacon and deacon; that, returning to Scotland, before he consulted with the said parents etc. in regard to the aforesaid, the said friars incited him so much that he very soon received also the order of priest, after receiving which, and after remaining in the said profession for about two years after his return to Scotland, at length turning over in his mind that he had been deceived and circumvented by the said friars he, with the counsel and assent of the said parents etc., utterly abandoned the said place [of Ayre] and order, returned to the world and, betaking himself to France, has been engaged in the service of king Charles for about fifteen years, and has exercised himself in warlike acts as a captain of men-at-arms. The said petition adding that, penitent and induced by the said king, he desires to amend his errors and return to the fold of the church, and to serve God perpetually in some monastery or place of canons regular of the order of St. Augustine, the pope, at his petition and that of king Charles praying for absolution from the excommunication which he has incurred, orders the above three to so absolve him for this time only, enjoining a salutary penance, to dispense him, on account of irregularity contracted by being present at several conflicts in which mutilations and homicides were perpetrated, to minister in all the said orders, migrate from his said order to the monastery of canons regular of St. Augustine at Sens, make his regular profession therein, and hold any benefices of the said order, even if canonries and prebends, elective dignities, major or principal, and with cure, etc., and to rehabilitate him.Sicut pia mater.
