(f. 32.)
To the archbishop of Dublin. Mandate to go to the Augustinian hospital of St. John Baptist, by Dublin, immediately belonging to the Roman church, and make enquiry touching the rents, lands, vineyards, rights and goods thereof, which prior William and his predecessors are said to have alienated and wasted, to the injury of the men, women, and orphans living therein, and to make order touching the reformation of the said hospital and restoration of its property, and the removal of the prior if he is found guilty. [Theiner, 323.]
14 Kal. May.
(f. 32d.)
Decree deciding the cause between the Augustinian abbot and convent of St. Anthony, in the diocese of Vienne, and the Benedictine prior and brethren of the united priory and hospital of St. Anthony, Genoa, which cause was heard under Benedict XII. by the late William, bishop of Norwich, papal chaplain and auditor, and subsequently by others named. (A mandate, on f. 40d, dated Avignon, 14 Kal. Oct. 1363, and addressed to the archbishop of Genoa and others named, concerning the same cause, contains a similar reference to bishop William.)
10 Kal. June.
(f. 35d.)
Revocation, on petition of abbot Thomas and the convent of St. Werburg's, Chester, of the letters of exemption granted to the said monastery by [Clement] VI. at the instance of William, monk and abbot thereof, he having acted without the knowledge and consent of the convent and of Edward, prince of Wales, founder of the said monastery. [Cal. Pet. i. 423; See Cal. Lett. iii. 38.]
Id. Nov.
(f. 50.)
Confirmation, with exemplification, of the appropriation to the Cistercian abbot and convent of Vale Royal, of the church of Lampadervaur (Llanbadarn Vawr), of their patronage, void by the consecration of its rector, Robert, to the see of Coventry and Lichfield. The appropriation was made by the late Thomas, bishop of St. Davids, with the consent of the chapter and the archdeacon of Cardigan, but the confirmation by Innocent VI. 7 Kal. June, or July, anno 9, by reason of that pope's death was not expedited. Repetition is made of the clause inserted by Innocent VI. in the letters patent of the bishop, touching the portions assigned to the vicars of Llanbadarn Vawr and its dependents, Castle Walter, Wavelar or Wavebat, and Rolomed or Rollonrod. The letters of the bishop, dated 28 Nov. 1360, state that the appropriation is to help towards the repair of the nave of the abbey church destroyed by a great storm on the 19th Oct. last past, that the patronage and advowson of the church has been granted by Edward, prince of Wales, duke of Cornwall and earl of Chester, to Peter de Lacy, Richard de Wolveston, William de Spridlynton, and John de Lues, in order that they may carry out the appropriation, and that a yearly pension of 4l. 6s. 8d. is imposed—3l. 6s. 8d. for the bishop, 2s. for the archdeacon of Cardigan, and 18s. for the chapter. [See Cal.Pet. i. 371.]
6 Kal. April.
(f. 66.)
To Simon, bishop of London. Mandate to summon the bishops of Norwich and Lincoln, and others, and obtain a taxation according to the canons of the vicars’ portions of certain churches appropriated to the warden and college of scholars of Valence Marie Hall, Cambridge. A Former petition stated that faculty to the then bishop of London to make appropriations to the value, after assigning vicars’ portions, of 100l. was obtained by Mary de-Sancto Paulo, countess of Pembroke, their founder, from Clement VI.; and that bishop Ralph appropriated to them Saxthorp (value 13l. 6s. 8d.) his successor Michael Tilneye (80l.) and Simon himself Wareslec (8l.) in the dioceses of Norwich and Lincoln, vicars’ portions, being assigned, so that as the total exceeded 100l. by 26s. 8d. the warden and college doubted whether they might not be molested touching the last-named church; whereupon the present pope confirmed its appropriation, such excess notwithstanding. In their present petition they doubt whether the diocesans’ taxation of the vicars’ portions, which has not yet been made, may not prove excessive. [Cal. Pet. i. 410; See Reg. cclxxxij. f. 141d.]
6 Non. Oct.
(f. 80.)
To the chapter of Salisbury. Appropriation for six years of the church of St. Thomas, Salisbury, value 10l. in the patronage of bishop Robert, a vicar's portion being assigned. The proceeds are to be applied to the repair of the walls and bell-tower, damaged by recent storms. [Cal. Pet. i. 462.]

Confirmation, with exemplification, of the appropriation by Robert, bishop, and the chapter of Salisbury, by letters dated Salisbury, 12 May 1360, of the church of Warawelle (Harewell) to Robert de Wa[l]sham and his successors, in whose patronage is the said church, deans of the free chapel of St. Nicholas, Wallingford castle, in which Edmund, earl of Cornwall, son of Richard, king of Almain, founded a chantry for a dean, six chaplains, six clerks, and four choristers (gerosarariorum, sic). Pensions of 20s. to the bishop, 13s. 4d. to the chapter, and 3s. to Edmund de la Beche, archdeacon of Berkshire, and his successors, are charged. [Cal. Pet. i. 452.]
3 Non. July.
(f. 81d.)
To the bishop of Wells. Mandate, on petition of John Raymundi the younger, donsel, the countess of Ormonde, and other inhabitants of Pendesford (Pensford) in the parish of Stanton Drew, in the diocese of Wells, to allow them, if the facts be as stated, to have mass and other divine offices in the chapel of St. Thomas the Martyr which they have founded and endowed, upon holidays and upon other days on which they cannot, by reason of the distance and the floods, go without danger to the parish church; especially as they are ready to go to the said church on Sundays and other solemn days. [Cal. Pet. i. 439.]

2 Urban V.

Littere De Curia.

8 Id. March.
(f. 84d.)
To the official of Bordeaux. Mandate to summon Amaneuus de Faberveto and examine him as to his fitness and as to the age he had attained at the time of the mandate of Innocent VI. ordering the said official to give him, if found fit after examination, the canonry and prebend of Lincoln, void by the resignation of Stephen [Aubert or Albert] cardinal deacon of St. Mary's in Aquiro, 10 Kal. July, anno 10 [1362]. The pope has heard that at the time of the said mandate Amaneuus had not attained his fourteenth year and was unfit in letters and otherwise. A sealed report is to be sent, in order that the pope may be able to decide what is to be done.

Littere Diversarum Formarum.

To the archbishop of York. Mandate to summon those concerned, touching the pension and the oath to pay the same exacted by John, sometime bishop of Lincoln, from the rector of Northorp, of his patronage, for a chantry of two priests founded by him in the church of Lincoln, the value of the rectory, namely 25 marks, being insufficient for his support, inasmuch as the pension reaches in some years the amount of the benefice, and sometimes exceeds it.
