|To Alexander Curtour, [per]petual vicar of the parish church of Dunsyar in the diocese of Glasgow, bachelor in decrees. Dispensation to him (who is of noble birth by both parents, and holds the said vicarage and the perpetual chaplaincy without cure at the altar of St. Catherine in the church of St. Giles de Edinburgeñ (sic), in the dioceses of Glasgow and St. Andrews, value not exceeding 8l. and 4l. sterling respectively), to receive and retain for life, together with the said vicarage, any one other, or without the vicarage any two other, benefices [with cure or otherwise] incompatible, even if dignities etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases.

Macereto in the
diocese of Siena.
|To the dean of Annaghdown and David Walsh (Valensi) and Thady Oruodry, canons of Tuam. Mandate as below. Calixtus III, upon learning that the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of St. Nicholas, Galway (de Galluia), in the diocese of Annaghdown, was void by the death of John Macanfilead, and that Richard (Riscerdus) Obare, priest, of the diocese of Tuam, had detained possession for more than a year but less than two years, and was still detaining it, without any canonical title, ordered a certain executor (not here named) to summon Richard and others concerned, and if he found the vicarage to be void as above or in any other way, to make provision of it to Odo Otyernay, priest, of the diocese of Tuam. The recent petition of the said Odo to the present pope contained that after the said executor had made provision to him, and he in virtue thereof had obtained possession, he gave as remuneration to the said executor a certain quantity of goods, and that he rendered obedience to Thomas Bared, (fn. 1) priest, of Killala (Aladen.), who alleged that he was bishop of Annaghdown, to the offence of the archbishop of Tuam, the ordinary, to whom he had sworn obedience, on account of which he was excommunicated and deprived by the said archbishop, and afterwards restored, when under which sentences he celebrated masses and other divine offices and took part therein, but not in contempt of the Keys. The pope therefore orders the above three to absolve him from the said sentence and the rest of the foregoing, enjoining penance, dispense him on account of irregularity and rehabilitate him. He is to resign the vicarage. Sedes apostolica, pia mater. (P. and Ernestus. | P. xxv. de Varris.) [1½ pp. See Cal. Papal Lett., Vol. XI, p. 333.]|
|Ibid.||To the same. Mandate, recapitulating the preceding, to collate and assign to the above Odo (who was lately dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy as the son of a clerk and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure) after he has duly resigned, the above vicarage, value not exceeding 10 marks sterling. Vite etc. (P. and A. de Tuscanis. | P.xx. Quarto Id. Junii Anno Secundo. de Varris.) [3¼ pp.]|
|9 Kal. June.
Macereto in the
diocese of Siena.
|To the abbot of Clare (de Forgio alias de Clar) in the diocese of Killaloe (Laonien.). Mandate as below. The petition of Eugenius Yheogouayn, clerk, of the diocese of Killaloe, contained that after Martin V's renewal of all sentences etc. promulgated by his predecessors against simoniacs, and his reservation to himself and his successors of absolution therefrom, on the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Kyllfyeworach in the said diocese becoming void because Robert Marhathayn (recte Machathayn), after having obtained it by canonical collation, held it for more than a year without having himself ordained priest, and without dispensation, the said Eugenius bargained with Donatus bishop of Killaloe that if the said bishop made him collation and provision thereof he would grant and assign to the bishop, in accordance with the custom of those parts, a certain quota and part of the first year's fruits etc., which he did, not without simony, thereby incurring the said sentences etc.; after which the said bishop, as a result of the said bargain, made collation and provision of the vicarage to Eugenius, who under pretext thereof obtained possession, and still detains it, taking however no fruits therefrom. The said collation and provision being therefore null, and the vicarage still void as above, the pope hereby orders the above abbot to absolve Eugenius from the said sentences etc., enjoining penance, and to rehabilitate him, and in the event of his doing so to collate and assign to him the vicarage, value not exceeding 12 marks sterling, whether void as above, or by the death of Nymeas Ykaellaigi or Maurice Ymuirissa, clerks, or by the non-promotion to the priesthood within the lawful time of Rory (Ruodrici) Ygillasenayn, clerk, or by the resignation of one of the said Robert Nimeas Maurice and Rory, or in any other way; notwithstanding that Eugenius was lately received by authority of the ordinary in the collegiate church of Inyskathig in the said diocese, in accordance with the statutes and customs thereof, to a certain portion of rural lands, which portion lay on the west side and was about to become void, and had customary cure of souls, value not exceeding 20s. of the money current in those parts. (fn. 1) He is hereby dispensed to receive the said vicarage and portion, if they be collated to him, and to retain them together for life, but before the abbot proceeds to execute these presents Eugenius is to resign the vicarage to him. Solet copiosa. (P. and G. Gonne. | P. xxxv.Quarto Id. Junii Anno Secundo. de Varris.) [4 pp. +.]|
Macereto in the
diocese of Siena.
|To George Scoriswode, clerk, of the diocese of St. Andrews. Rehabilitation, at his recent petition, containing that (after he had been dispensed by authority of the ordinary, on account of illegitimacy as the son of a priest and a married woman, to be promoted to minor orders and receive and retain a benefice without cure, and had afterwards been ordered to be dispensed by papal authority to be promoted to all even holy orders and receive and retain another benefice with cure), on the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Drumfressis (sic) in the diocese of Glasgow by the death of John Aytonis, Andrew bishop of Glasgow made collation and provision to him thereof before the process about the said mandate of dispensation had been decreed, under pretext of which collation and provision he, without any other canonical dispensation, obtained possession of the vicarage and has held it for about a year and a half, as he still does, taking the fruits, though few in number. He is to resign it. Sedes apostolica, pia mater. (P. and Ja. Bigneti. | P. xvi. de Varris.) [1 p. +.]|
|To the bishop of Grasse, the archdeacon of Béziers (Bicterren.) and the official of Glasgow. Mandate, recapitulating the preceding, to collate and assign the above vicarage, value not exceeding 10l. sterling, to the above George, upon his duly resigning it; notwithstanding that he holds the hospital of St. Mary, Brechin (Bretineñ), wont to be governed sometimes by clerks, sometimes by laymen, value [likewise] not exceeding 10l. sterling. He is hereby dispensed to be promoted to all even holy orders and receive and retain the vicarage, notwithstanding the said defect etc. Vite etc. (P. and A. de Cortesiis. | P. xxxv. Quarto Id. Junii Anno Secundo. de Varris.) [3 pp. +.]|

|To John Dalrempil, clerk, of the diocese of St. Andrews. Dispensation to him, who is of noble birth and is in his twenty-second year, that even forthwith (exnunc) he may receive and retain for life two benefices with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if dignities etc., even major or principal dignities, or such mixed, or with one of them a parish church or its perpetual vicarage, etc., and may resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, provided that he do not hold two parish churches or their perpetual vicarages.Nobilitas generis, vite etc. (P. and Ja. Bigneti. | P. xxxvi.de Varris.) [1 p.]|
