(f. 62.)
Mandate to the abbot of Radinges, the archdeacons of Oxford, Salisbury, and Lincoln, and Master Roger Theologus, canon of Salisbury, to examine and make order in a matter set forth by the convent of Worcester, that whereas S. their prior has been suspended by the pope for using falsified letters, the bishop, on the day of his return from Rome, came to Worcester, and, entering their chapter with seculars, contrary to the custom of the place, deposed the said (sic) prior of Bologna (Bononie) dwelling there on account of severe illness, and, although the convent, to whom the election of a prior belongs, asserted their right, and appealed to the pope, put William, a monk of another place, in their church as prior.

On the part of the bishop and prior William it is urged that the said S. was involved with other monks of the convent in a sentence of excommunication, and that some of them attacked the said William and despoiled him of the priory, so that on his part and that of the bishop it was demanded that the monks should be excommunicated until they made satisfaction, and William restored to the priory. The pope also orders them to supersede the question now pending about the institution of the prior.

10 Kal. Dec.
Lateran.
(f. 120d.)
Inhibition, in favour of the master and brethren of the Knights Templars in England, that no one shall take tithe of their lands held before the general council, cultivated by themselves, or of their meadows, mills, gardens, pastures, &c., on which they have not hitherto paid tithe.

1223.
10 Kal. Jan.
Lateran.
(f. 134.)
Mandate to the cardinal archbishop of Canterbury, touching H. monk of Theokesbiri. When he, by the abbot's order, came to Rome, he was asked by R. proctor of the archdeacon of Gloucester to get certain letters for him from the pope, and he paid money to a clerk, who gave him false letters, which he believed to be true, and he consequently asked the man for whom he got them to refund the money he had paid. But when their falseness appeared, he withdrew his claim, and he now begs that a dispensation may be granted to him on account of what he did in ignorance. The pope orders the letters to be cancelled, and a suitable penance enjoined, remitting the case in general to the cardinal archbishop.

Mandate to the prior and convent of St. John in Monte, Bologna, to assign without delay to the marquess of Montferrat, by the hands of the bishop of Modena, 521 marks 7s. 10d., contained in five bags, committed to them by the bishop elect of Norwich, papal chamberlain.

[3 Id. Mar.]
Lateran.
(f. 172.)
Mandate to the bishop of Ely, the abbot of Waredon, and the archdeacon of Bedeford, to go to Theokesbiri, and compel P. the abbot, or any withholders of pretended papal letters, to produce them, which letters, R. and W., monks of that monastery, say that the abbot asserts he has received, granting him leave to wear mitre, ring, and gloves, and to give solemn benediction after mass. Such letters do not agree with the transcript in the papal chancery. The pope has never given to any abbot leave to wear gloves and give solemn benediction. If the letters agree with the transcript herewith sent, those who obtained and used them are to be deprived; but if the letters cannot be found, the above are to make a papal visitation of the monastery, correcting and reforming abuses.
Ibid. Mandate to the bishop of Worcester to cause reasonable expenses for the above business to be provided out of the goods of the monastery.
4 Id. Mar.
Lateran.
(f. 172d.)

Id. Mar.
Lateran.
(f. 173.)
Dispensation, at the request of the king, to his clerk Master Stephen de Lucy, to hold an additional benefice, with cure of souls.
Ibid. Indult to Philip de Lucy, on the recommendation of the cardinal archbishop of Canterbury, the bishops of Bath, Lincoln, Salisbury, and Norwich, and the bishops elect of Chichester and Exeter, that notwithstanding his illegitimacy he may be ordained and accept any diguity save that of bishop.
2 Id. Mar.
Lateran.
(f. 173.)
Letter to Henry king of England, whose envoys, Master Stephen de Lucy and G. de Craucumb, have brought a good report of him. The pope begs the king to lay to heart the rules of good government, and suggests that he should not now demand an account of his vassals, or scandalise them about the restitution of his rents, but put these matters off, knowing that the said envoys have presented his petitions on these matters, and are labouring to promote them. [Shirley, i. 540.]
14 Kal. Mar.
Lateran.

The question of legitimacy having been moved and discussed before the archbishop, nothing remained but to give sentence. Certain minors, who did not otherwise appear in the cause asserting by their guardian that it would be to their prejudice if sentence were given in favour of N., who they declared was not legitimate, inasmuch as they were children of the decessed by a lawful wife, appealed to the pope that the archbishop should not proceed in the cause, so that to the loss of the abbot and convent it remains unsettled: sentence is to be given without prejudice to the minors, who are to be indemnified. [Theiner, 22.]
1224.
6 Non. May.
Lateran.
(f. 188.)

Likely a reference to the grain owed by each plough operating in the East Riding of Yorkshire to Beverley Minster, resting place of the St John of Beverley, former bishop of York. The cathedrals of York and Lincoln also claimed a right to grains produced in particular regions, levies known respectively as "Petercorn" and "Marycorn."
