To the abbot of Middleton (de Choro [sancti] Benedicti) in the diocese of Cloyne (Clonen.), and the precentors of Cork and Cloyne. Mandate (the pope having been informed by John Tirry, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Karrygtuathyl in the diocese of Cloyne, that John Buler, a canon of Cork, has committed simony and openly practised usury, and dilapidated etc. the goods of his canonry of Cork and prebend of Cathirlagi therein; and that Thomas de Cetyr (recte Cotyr), rector of a parcel of the rectory of Tybrukyndealaygh alias Balynatybrud in the said diocese, has divided the fruits etc. of the said parcel between himself and John Bryt, clerk, of the diocese of Cashel, without having obtained licence from the apostolic see, and has lately committed simony, about which and divers other crimes [not here expressed] they are greatly defamed in those parts) if and after the said John Tirry (who was lately dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, after which he had himself so promoted) accuses Buler and Cetyr before the above three, to summon them and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be true, to deprive and remove them, and in that event to collate and assign the said
canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 5 marks sterling, and rectory, without cure and value not exceeding 1 mark sterling, which are of the patronage of laymen, to Tirry; notwithstanding that he holds the said vicarage of Karrygtuathyl and the rectory of the parish church of Teampulruayn in the diocese of Cork, the value of both of which does not exceed 13 marks sterling, under a papal dispensation granted to him for life. He is hereby dispensed to receive and retain the said canonry and prebend and parcel, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, and hold instead two other compatible benefices, and retain them with his said other vicarage and rectory. notwithstanding the said defect etc. Vite etc. (P. and G. Gonne. | P. xx. Kal. Julii Anno Tertio.de Varris.) [6 pp. See above, Reg. Lat., DLXIV, f. 169d.]
