To Clement Denston, archdeacon of Sudbury in Norwich, bachelor of canon law. Decree as below. He was lately dispensed by papal authority to hold for two years the said archdeaconry, which is a non-major dignity, and any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, the letters of dispensation stating that the archdeaconry was without cure and that its value did not exceed 10 marks sterling. Afterwards, on his setting forth that it had cure and that its value exceeded 10 marks, the present pope granted that the said letters should hold good as if they stated that the archdeaconry had cure and that its value did not exceed 40l. sterling, at the same time prolonging the said two years by one more. After the said later letters, as his petition set forth this day contained, he obtained the parish church of Burwell in the diocese of Norwich, value not exceeding 80 marks sterling, which, after holding it for some time with the said archdeaconry, he has resigned; and, upon his signifying that the said archdeaconry was worth more [than 40l. sterling], but not more than 100l. sterling, the pope has granted, by letters drawn up under the present date [below, p. 588], that the said dispensation shall hold good as if it stated the value as not exceeding 100l., and has by the said letters dispensed him to hold it for life with any benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, and to resign them both, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases. At his said petition, adding that the said archdeaconry has cure and that its value does not exceed 150 marks sterling, and that he fears lest the preceding letters may be held surreptitious because it is stated in the first that the archdeaconry was without cure and that its value did not exceed 10 marks, and in the second that its value did not exceed 40l. and because in the third it is not stated that it has cure, and the said parish church is not mentioned; and that he holds, besides the said archdeaconry, a canonry and prebend of Stoke by Clare in the said diocese, value not exceeding 3 marks,—the pope hereby decrees that all the aforesaid letters and dispensations and their consequences shall hold good from their several dates, as if in each of them it were stated that the said archdeaconry had cure and that its value did not exceed 150 marks, and as if in the said last letters express mention were made of the said parish church, and of its said true value. Litterarum etc. (B. and Ja. Goier. | B. xxx.Nonas Octobris Anno Undecimo. Valven.)
1436[–7].
5 Id. Feb.
Bologna.
(f. 267d.)
To John Depeden, rector of Southechirche in the diocese of Canterbury. Dispensation to him—who holds the canonries and prebends of Wodmor (rectius Wedmor) Quarta in Wells and Wesebergh in Chichester, and a canonry and prebend in the chapel royal of Windesore, value altogether not exceeding 16l.—to hold for life with the said church, value not exceeding 26l., any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if another parish church etc. or a dignity, even if major or principal, etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, notwithstanding the pope's late ordinance to the contrary [see above, p. 247] etc. Vite etc. (An. and Ja.de Ugolinis. | An. l. de Adria.)

To Lawrence Pyot, canon of Glasgow, M.A. Grant as below By letters dated 8 Kal. May anno 1 [1431] the pope motu proprio granted him provision of a canonry with reservation of a prebend and a dignity etc. of Glasgow, and of a benefice with or without cure in the gift of the bishop and the prior and chapter of St. Andrews, even if such benefice were a canonry and prebend or a dignity etc.; after which, as his recent petition contained, he obtained by papal authority the perpetual vicarage of Tibirmire and (after resigning it, and getting provision made to him by the said authority of the precentorship of Glasgow, a non-major dignity with cure, of which he has not got possession and about which he is litigating in the papal palace) obtained by the same authority the perpetual vicarage of Kilbarchane, which he at present holds, in the dioceses of Dunkeld and Glasgow. The pope hereby grants to him, who holds the canonries and prebends of Moy in Moray and Buffodre in Dunblane, value together not exceeding 16l. sterling, that of the said vicarage of Kilbarchane not exceeding the same amount, that the said letters shall hold good from the date thereof and that he may, by vigour alike of them as of these presents, accept and have provision made to him of such dignity etc. and benefice, as if the above provision had not been made and as if he had not obtained, as above. As soon, however, as by the said vigour he obtains possession of a dignity etc. or benefice with cure, he is to resign the said vicarage of Kilbarchane and the said precentorship, if he meanwhile win it, or give up his suit and all right in or to the said precentorship.

15 Kal. Feb.
Bologna.
(f. 332d.)
To the bishop of London. Mandate as below. The petition of William Soper, layman, and Joan Chamburlayn, at present dwelling in his diocese, contained that formerly, whilst William's first wife Isabel was alive, and he and she were living together as man and wife, and whilst the above Joan, who was related to Isabel in the second and third degrees of kindred, was living in the same house, the said William very often carnally knew her, then a virgin, committing incest; and that, upon Isabel's death, he and Joan, not ignorant of the said kinship, contracted marriage with one another per verba [legitime] de presenti, without banns or other solemnities, and consummated it. The said William and Joan asserting that of the above little or nothing has become known, the pope hereby orders the bishop to absolve them from excommunication incurred, enjoining penance, and to dispense them to remain in the said marriage, notwithstanding the impediment of affinity arising from the said kinship, even if they exchanged a promise during the said Isabel's lifetime to marry after her death, provided that they, or one of them, did not otherwise compass her death; any offspring, present and future, being declared legitimate. Oblate nobis. (An. and Cincius. | An. xxx. de Adria.) [Cancelled with strokes and in the margin: Cassata quia in loco non decenti registrata, sed ex post in loco debito reposita, An. de Adria.
