Decree, on petition of William [de Lenne], bishop of Chichester, replacing the process begun by him against canon John de Dounton, or Dorneton, in the position in which it was before the said John appealed to the pope and obtained provisional absolution from the excommunication issued against him by the said bishop. On the bishop, to whom provision of the see was made by Innocent VI. coming to be installed, the said canon opposed him, and afterwards hindered the production of certain muniments, or copies of them, for the defence of the rights of the bishop concerning the mensa episcopalis, about which there was a suit. He, moreover, stirred up other subjects of the bishop to rebel, refused to obey the bishop's order to tender canonical obedience in regard to his church of Bonn', and proceeded to issue sentences of excommunication and suspension against subjects of the bishop, and to put sequestrations in some places, causing them to be enforced by lay power. On the bishop's calling on him to desist, he refused to his face to obey, and when the bishop summoned a chapter, the said John impetuously got up, refused to answer, and went out, disobeying the bishop's order to remain until the business for which the chapter was summoned was finished; upon this he was excommunicated, and after his appeal heard before the official of Canterbury he appealed to the pope, who gave verbal commission to hear the cause to Peter, bishop of Albano, then cardinal of Sancti Quatuor Coronati, before whom appeared proctors, Master John de Ulmonte for bishop William, and Master Peter de Bononia for John Dounton. On the ground of the bishop's translation to London the cardinal was commissioned by the pope provisionally to absolve the said John from the aforenamed sentence of excommunication, provided that Thomas de Trelok, dean of London, appointed bishop of Chichester, consented thereto, which it is said that he did in presence of the said cardinal, who therupon provisionally absolved the said John. But as William did not consent to the translation, neither the appointment of Thomas to the see of Chichester nor his consent to the absolution had any effect.

Afterwards, being freed from the said John by her relations, she remained with them until she became of marriageable age, and, keeping to her first espousals, publicly married Henry. John then, falsely asserting that she was contracted to him first, brought an action against her as his lawful wife, before the official of York, and so treated her advocates and proctors that no one dared to defend her, nor did she dare to appear in person before the archibishop, being in fear of John, who, with a multitude of armed men, lay in wait for her.

Walter Cusak, donsel, who had cohabited with a woman related to Joan in the third degree of kindred, married Joan, who, on being certified of this, applied for a divorce from him, and for a licence to a marry another. Thomas Pers of Meath, under commission from the bishop, gave sentence in favour of Joan. Although Walter did not appeal, and Henry married Joan, the said Walter afterwards, on a visitation of the archbishop of Armagh, suggested to him that the former marriage was valid, and the archbishop, abruptly acting on this false suggestion, and without summoning Henry and Joan, declared the former marriage valid, and ordered Joan to live with Walter as a wife. From this sentence Henry and Joan appealed to the pope.
