To the official of Limerick. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of William Nangill, clerk, of Limerick, contained that on the voidance in a certain way of a canonry of Limerick and the prebend of Kyllbekan therein, Thomas bishop of Limerick made collation and provision thereof to the said William, who now doubts whether they hold good. The pope, therefore, hereby orders the above official to collate and assign to him the said canonry and prebend, value 8 marks sterling, still void as above. Dignum etc. [At the end: G. xv. Kal. Februarii anno duodecimo. Polycarpus.) [2⅓ pp.]

To the abbots of Paisley (de Passalito) and Corsragil, in the diocese of Glasgow, and the official of Glasgow. Mandate, as below. A canonry of Glasgow and the prebend of Cudros’ [sic] therein became void, and therefore reserved under the pope's late reservation of all benefices of papal chaplains, by the resignation of Andrew Liel, priest, of the diocese of Brechin, a papal chaplain (to whom provision thereof had been lately made by the pope's authority on their voidance by the promotion of Robert, [bishop] elect of Aberdeen, to that church, and by the lapse of the time for consecration) to Julian bishop of Glasgow, the said resignation having been made without the said Andrew's having had possession, so that the said canonry and prebend are still void. The pope, therefore, hereby orders the above three to collate and assign the said canonry and prebend, value 16l. sterling, to Adam Gordon, priest, of the diocese of Moray, who alleges that David Lithon, clerk, of the diocese of Aberdeen, has detained possession of them for between 6 months and a year, and still detains them, under pretext of a collation made to him thereof (as being void by the said resignation, and previously generally reserved to the pope), after and against the above reservation, without any other title or right; notwithstanding that the said Adam holds a canonry of Aberdeen and the prebend of Kynkel therein, value 80l, sterling. Vite etc. (At the end: G. xxDuodecimo Kal. Martii anno duodecimo. Polyearpus.) [3 pp.]
