REGESTA, VOL. CCXLVI.

2 URBAN V.

1363.
Id. Nov.
Avignon.
(f. 4d.)
To Amadeus, count of Savoy. Monition, on the representation of James, abbot of St. Just, Susa, in the diocese of Turin, to restore the castle of St Maur, belonging to that monastery, he having forcibly recovered it from the company of English.
10 Kal. Dec.
Avignon.
(f. 10.)
To king Edward. Repeating his request to give Guy [de Luxembourg], count of St. Pol, a hostage detained in England, licence to return for a time to his country on private affairs, due security being given.
4 Kal. Dec.
Avignon.
(f. 12d.)
To the same. The pope has received his letters by Nicholas de Lovayne, knight, bearer of these presents; the king's request touching the archdeaconry of Lincoln, the pope is ready to grant, but as regards the see of Bath and Wells the pope thinks that Philip de Bellocampo, being under age, is unfit for it, and has translated thereto John, bishop of Worcester, the king's treasurer, and has made provision of Worcester and other sees as was fitting. He has also, as requested, dispensed two of the king's clerks, in regard of irregularity, to hold one benefice apiece.
Ibid.
(f. 13d.)
To Thomas de Bellocampo, earl of Warwick. The pope has received with joy his letters, in which he offered himself and a large company of knights to serve the church; but as the pope hopes to make peace with his enemies, there is no need at present for their services, which he is ready to accept when they are required. He hopes to see the earl at the apostolic see, and will grant his requests as far as possible.
18 Kal. Jan.
Avignon.
(f. 39.)
To king Edward. Desiring him to prolong the time given to Beéraud (Antiberaldus), count of Clermont, beyond the eight months allowed him to absent himself on private affairs, touching which the king may give full credence to Nicholas de Lovayne, knight bearer of these presents.
17 Kal. Jan.
Avignon.
(f. 39d.)
To Edward, prince of Aquitaine and Wales. Informing him that the archbishop of Bordeaux has not, as has been falsely reported, written or caused to be said anything to the pope touching the revocation of the oath of fealty received by the prince from the prelates and some other ecclesiastics of Aquitaine. The pope has written to the prince in regard to the said persons, by whom the said oath was not accustomed to be taken to the prince's predecessors. He therefore prays the prince to put aside all irritation against the archbishop.
Kal. Dec.
Avignon.
(f. 58d.)
To the same. The pope has received his letters about the bishop of Rodez, who has said nothing to the pope in detraction of the prince, and has done no more than duly defend the liberties of his church, which, together with its bishop, the pope commends to the protection of the prince. The pope was not able to promote the prince's chancellor to the see of Bath and Wells, but will bear in mind the recommendation when an opportunity occurs: he has thought good to translate thither John, bishop of Worcester, treasurer of the late king, As to the oath of fealty, which the prince has caused to be taken by those prelates from whom his predecessors, kings of France or England or dukes of Aquitaine, did not receive it, the pope desires him to remit and annul it.

The pope is keeping the prince's envoy, John de Revelhone, dean of Poitiers, at the Roman court, for the better promotion of their interests, and sends these presents by William de Arderne, bearer of a verbal message from the pope, to whom the prince may give full credence.
