Lateran.
(f. 76.)
Mandate to the archdeacon, chancellor, and precentor of York, concerning a cause between Nicholas de Karden, knight, and C. his wife, and the abbot and convent of Drundraynan, in the diocese of Whitehern, about C.'s dower. They complain that when the cause was brought from the hearing of the abbot of Gedewrd to the pope, who committed it to the archdeacon of St. Andrews and his colleagues, Alan de Galwechia, temporal lord of N. and C., forced them, by taking their goods, into a composition injurious to them. After Alan's death, by an appeal to the pope, they obtained letters to the abbot of Tungland and the dean and the official of Glasgow, but as the dean and official were distant more than two day's journey from the monastery, whose abbot and convent are freed by papal indult from citation to that distance, the process could not be held. They then sent their proctor to Rome, but the other party getting before the proctor and pretending that he appealed from the abbot of Tungland and his colleagues, in that they admitted R. the son of N. and C. as a witness in the cause, obtained papal letters to the abbot of Driburc and his colleagues, before whom it was excepted on the part of N. and C., that these letters made no mention of the former ones addressed to the abbot of Gedewrd and the archdeacon of St. Andrews, nor of the processes and the composition, so that by them they ought not to proceed. This objection was overruled by the abbot of Driburc, whereupon N. and C. appealed to the pope, but the judges, disregarding this, excommunicated them. Meanwhile the proctor obtained papal letters to the dean of York and his colleagues, ordering them, on the production of all letters obtained on either side, to terminate the cause, or, if not, to remit it to the pope. These letters not being yet presented, the abbot of Drundraynan, to compel them by labours and expenses to cease from prosecuting their right, came to Rome and obtained R. cardinal of St. Eustace's to hear the cause, who revoked the letters to the dean of York and remitted the parties to the abbot of Driburc, on which N. and C. again appealed to the pope to put an end to the cause. The pope orders the above to relax provisionally the sentence of excommunication, and having all the documents before them to hear the cause, and terminate it. If not, to remit it to the pope, ordering the parties to appear personally or by proctors, notwithstanding the said indult to the abbot of Dundraynan, and to the king of Scotland, that his men may not be summoned out of the kingdom by papal letters.
12 Kal. June.
Lateran.
(f. 76d.)
Mandate to the archdeacon of Northampton to order the documents to be produced, and the sentences issued on either side provisionally relaxed, and restoration made to the bishop of Ossory of his bishopric and his goods, and to bring to an end within six months the cause between the said bishop and the archbishop of Dublin, to whom an appeal had been made by M. a priest of the diocese of Ossory, whom the bishop had ordered to put away his concubine. The archbishop suspended the bishop, fined him 60 marks for contumacy, and made him sign letters by which he bound himself under oath and a penalty of 100 marks to cease to interfere with the clergy and people of Ossory. A papal mandate was thereupon sent to the bishops of Worcester and Hereford and the dean of Hereford to relax the penalty, and cause the money to be repaid; which mandate being disregarded by the archbishop, who meanwhile excommunicated the bishop, the judges fined him 45 marks for contumacy. On this, pretending to appeal, he obtained papal letters to the bishop of Lismore and his fellow judges, the bishop of Ossory's proctor appealing on his side; in contempt of which the said judges excommunicated the bishop of Ossory, whose bishopric was thereupon occupied by the archbishop, who carried off all the bishop's goods deposited in the house of the Friars Preachers at Kilkenny, extorted an oath of fealty from the bishop's men, and appointed to void benefices in his diocese. All this and more has been going on for four years, and as the archbishop is powerful in Ireland the bishop of Ossory cannot litigate with him there, nor can he prosecute his appeal on account of war. If the above archdeacon cannot terminate the causes within the given time, or if either of the parties appeal to the pope, the process is to be remitted under seal to Rome, and a day fixed for the appearance of the parties. The bishop is not to be summoned by the archbishop beyond the realm of England, nor otherwise molested by him.
Kal. June.
Lateran.
(f. 80.)
Mandate to the bishop and chapter of Hereford to admit Thomas Folioth, clerk, kinsman of R. cardinal of St. Eustace's, to a canonry, even if there be the fixed number of canons, and the bishop is to confer on him a prebend when possible.

If both elections were uncanonical, they, annulling both, are to cause a fresh election to be made.
