Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume: Anno 13. Lib. 1, and on an end-paper at the beginning of the volume: An. 13. to. 3.
  • 2. Et nichilominus quod collatio prouisio et omnimoda alia dispositio dicte vicarie quantotiens illam deinceps preterquam hac prima vice vacare contigerit ad dictum Archibaldum et pro tempore existentem archidiaconum Londouen. [sic] in dicta ecclesia sancti Andree perpetuo spectent et pertineant auctoritate predicta statuimus et etiam ordinamus.
  • 3. Also spelt Glafurd (recte Gla[s]furd) and Glaffurd (recte Glasfurd) in the text of the bull.
  • 4. The latter spelling occurs in the text of the bull.
  • 5. Independently of the surname, the mention of the constitutions of Otto and Ottobon, sometime papal legates in England, decides his nationality.
  • 6. Datum … Septimo Kal. Junii anno tertiodecimo, which was the date of the provision, just above. There is a cross in the margin, which usually points to an error, the error in this case being ‘Septimo.’ The faculty was, in fact, often dated a day or two later than the provision, and in such cases begins ‘Cum nos nuper,’ or ‘Cum nos pradem,’ as here. See, however, the faculty to the archbishop elect of Dublin, just below, and cf. above, pp. 824–7, and note on p. 825.
  • 7. Preterea volumus quod formam huiusmodi a te tunc prestiti iuramenti nobis de verbo ad verbum per tuas patentes litteras tuo sigillo signatas per proprium nuntium quantotius destinare procures.
