De Indultis, Privilegiis et Dispensationibus.

1371.
4 Kal. Oct.
Avignon.
(f. 18d.)
To Dermitius Oconcowr (O'Connor), a Friar Preacher, Extension, at his own petition and that of Margaret queen of Scotland, of the dispensation granted to him as the illegitimate son of a married man—to be promoted to any office of his order except that of provincial, by virtue of which he became prior and lector of Boscamam (Roscommon), in the diocese of Elphin—so as now to enable him to be elected to any episcopal or archiepiscopal dignity.
9 Kal. Oct.
Villeneuve by Avignon.
(f. 19d.)
To the bishop of St. Andrews. Mandate, at the petition of Charles king of the French and of king Robert, to grant a dispensation to James, son of William earl of Douglas, and Margaret, daughter of the said king Robert, to intermarry, notwithstanding that they are related in the fourth degree of kindred.
[Theriner 343, from Avignon Reg. ii. f. 337. and with a wrong date.]
5 Non. March.
Avignon.
(f. 26.)
To Thomas de Arundelle, son of Richard earl of Arundel, clerk, of the diocese of Chichester. Dispensation, at the petition also of his kinsman king Edward, to hold and exchange a benefice or dignity with cure of souls, even in a cathedral church, notwithstanding that he is in his eighteenth year, provided that the cure of souls, if any, be not neglected.
4 Kal. Oct.
Avignon.
(f. 33.)
To the chancellor of Toulouse. Mandate to admit Thomas Portugalensis, a Friar Minor, if found fit after examination, to lecture on the ‘Sentences’ in that university during the next or subsequent summer, at Thomas's choice; and afterwards, if found fit at the end of his lecturing, upon examination by the said chancellor and four masters of theology, to grant him the honour of mastership (magisterii honorem) and the licence to teach in that faculty. Thomas studied for several years in his order, especially in the parts of England, arts and theology, and then, according to the custom of his order, lectured for several years in arts in the province of Portugal. He afterwards studied theology for several years in the university of Pisa, and then lectured and disputed in the university of Salamanca, as bachelor for two years, and as lecturer for three. Coming back to Pisa, after being sent to Paris, he returned to Portugal, and was chosen by the chaptergeneral of his order to lecture on the ‘Sentences’ in the university of Cambridge (Cantabrugie), in order that after so lecturing he might obtain the mastership in theology (magisterium in sacra pagina). At his own petition and that of Ferdinand, king of Portugal, the present mandate is made. [See Bulaeus, Hist. Univ. Paris. IV.439.]
18 Kal. July.
Avignon.
(f. 33d.)
To John Wylioth, canon of London, master of arts and of theology. Grant to hold, in addition to the chancellorship of Exeter, value 28 marks, and a canonry and prebend of the same, value 6 marks, his canonry of London and prebend of Ruggemere in the same, value 4 marks, which he obtained during the lifetime of Urban V. on their voidance by the death of John de Schingham, under a provision made to him by that pope of a canonry of London with expectation of a prebend: John doubts whether his prebend of Ruggemere was not, at the time of his accepting it, specially reserved to the pope. The grant is subject to the usual condition that John de Schingham was not a member of the papal household.
5 Id. March.
Avignon.
(f. 39d.)
To William de Hexham, clerk, of the diocese of York. Rehabilitation, on account of irregularity incurred by his institution about a year ago to the church of Eccleston, value 18 marks, in the diocese of Lichfield, void by the death of Henry de Haydok, on the presentation of the king to the bishop of that diocese, without having obtained dispensation as the son of a priest, which dispensation he has since obtained. The church is to be resigned.
14 Kal. May.
Avignon.
(f. 42.)
To Richard Bidyk, rector of Bryngton, in the diocese of Lincoln. Confirmation of provision (notwithstanding that he holds also the canonry and prebend of Pelton in Chester [leStreet], in the diocese of Durham, about which he is litigating in the papal palace), of the above-named church, which he obtained by exchange with David de Wallore for the chapel of St. Thomas the Martyr on Bedford bridge, their respective proctors being Roger Winston, clerk, of the diocese of Lincoln, and Nicholas Brakle, clerk, of the diocese of Norwich, who made the resignations to Thomas, Augustinian prior of St. Mary's, Huntingdon, under powers granted by John bishop of Lincoln. As Bryngton had, before the exchange, been specially reserved by Urban V. under date 3 Id. May anno 4, and became therefore void by the exchange, provision of it was made to Richard by letters of the present pope, those of Urban V. to the same effect having remained unfinished through his death. As it has since been asserted that, even before the resignation, the church was already void, through the obtaining [by David] of another incompatible benefice or in some other way than by the resignation, the present confirmation is made.
1371.
18 Kal. May.
Avignon.
(f. 43.)
Relaxation, during twenty years, of one year and forty days of enjoined penance to penitents who give alms for the repair of the church of Bitton and its choir, in the diocese of Worcester.

Avignon.
(f. 43d.)
To Thomas de Salkeld, rector of Caldebeke, in the diocese of Carlisle, bachelor of canon law. Confirmation to him, who holds also by papal letters a canonry of Auckland, with expectation of a prebend, of his acceptance of the above-named church, which he obtained (on its voidance by William de Ragenhill obtaining that of North Colingham, in the diocese of York) under a papal provision of a benefice in the gift of the bishop of Carlisle, with or without cure of souls, value 25 or 18 marks respectively. Thomas since doubts whether the said church was not reserved to the pope, or whether its value is not more than 25 marks.
15 Kal. Feb.
Avignon.
(f. 47d.)
Relaxation, during twenty years, of one year and forty days of enjoined penance, to penitents who on the principal feasts of the year and the feast of the dedication, the octaves of certain of them, and the six days of Whitsun week; and of a hundred days to those who on the said octaves and six days, annually visit and give alms for the repair of the church of the Augustinian monastery of Jeddeworth, which situated on the borders of Scotland and England, has been destroyed in the wars.
7 Id. June.

(f. 48.)
To John de Strensall, rector of Mixebury, in the diocese of Lincoln. Extension of dispensations so that he may hold and exchange three compatible benefices, of which one may be a canonry in a cathedral church and another may have cure of souls. He already holds, under successive dispensations on account of illegitimacy, the above-named church, which he obtained by authority of the ordinary in exchange for that of Egimondi (Egremont), in the diocese of York, which he had held by papal provision. The present dispensation is made in consideration of his having laboured for seven years in the registry of the collector of papal dues in England.
4 Kal. May.
Avignon.

2 Non. March.
Avignon.
(f. 58.)
To William de Chesholme, treasurer of Moray, bachelor of canon law. Confirmation of the provision made to him by Urban V. of the said dignity, which has cure of souls, and which he obtained on its voidance by the promotion of the late Thomas de Harkars by that pope to the deanery of Moray, as he doubts whether it was not by the death of Thomas that the treasurership became void, and was therefore reserved to the pope. William, who is M.A. holds also a canonry and prebend in the same church. [Theiner 364, from Avignon Reg. ii. f. 421; a brief analysis.]
4 Kal. Aug.
Villeneuve by
Avignon.

Thomas studied for several years in divers universities (generalibus studiis) the seven liberal arts and theology, and finished the course of his study in the university (studio) of Paris, honourably preaching the World of God at sundry times before that university (universitate studii). Afterwards, according to the custom of his order, he lectured in Scotland, of which he is a native, on arts and theology. [See Reg. cclxxxvi. f. 265. See Bulaeus, Hist. Univ.
