XII, p. 432), his place is amongst the bishops of Ross in Ireland. The error is pointed out in Dowden, Bishops of Scotland, ed. Thomson, p. 220, note. Dowden also shows (p. 220) that the bishop John of the present decree (and of p. 105, above) is the same as John elect of Ross, above, p. 572 and Corrigenda, viz. John Woodman, bishop of Ross in Scotland, 1477– 81. Eubel omits Woodman from both sees of Ross although, as mentioned by Dowden, he occurs in the Obligationes. As a canon of St. Andrews, O.S.A., he had previously obtained provision of the abbey of Jedburgh (above, p. 519). See also below, p. 906.

(f. 165.)
To Henry Rump, M.A., who is also a master in arte poetica. Reservation, out of consideration for David, king of Scots, who has petitioned the pope on his behalf, of a benefice with or without cure in the gift of the dean and chapter of the Holy Apostles, Cologne, notwithstanding that he holds a chaplaincy in the same diocese. Litterarum sciencia, vite etc.
Page 649, s.v. Boniface VIII, after 433, add 594.

Volume V

Page 190, first entry. When No. LXVI of the Lateran Registers was examined by the Editor, folio 27 was missing, and only a conjectural restoration was possible, based on the final clauses which alone survived on f. 28. The missing leaf has since been recovered by Mgr. Angelo Mercati, Prefect of the Vatican Archieves, amongst the recently acquired Santini papers (fondo Santini), and has been restored to its place in the Register. Thus completed, the bull proves to have been in the mandate form, and the printed summary may now be improved as follows:—
8 Kal. June.
(25 May.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(ff. 27r.–28r.)
To the bishop of Bisceglie (Vigilien.), and the abbot of Qualley and the prior of Burschow in the diocese of Lichfield. Mandate to collate and assign to Thomas Halsol, a monk of the monastery of St. Benedict, Gualdo, O.S.B., in the diocese of Nocera [Umbra], the priory called the cell of Penwortham, of the said order, in the diocese of Lichfield, dependent on the monastery of Ewesham, of the said order, in the diocese of Worcester, wont to be governed by monks thereof, its holder wont to be removed by the abbot of the said monastery of Ewesham and to be recalled to the cloister thereof, value not exceeding 150 marks sterling, void by the death of Roger Windesley without the Roman court. As soon as the said Thomas has obtained possession of the said priory, they are to transfer him from Gualdo to Ewesham, and cause him to be received as a monk thereof; notwithstanding, etc., (the final clauses, etc., as printed on p. 190). Religionis zelus, vite ac morum. (De mandato, N. de Benevento.) [3 pp. Professor James Tait's list of the priors of Penwortham in Vict. Hist. Lanc., II (1908), p. 106 (based on and correcting the list in priory of Penwortham, ed. W. A. Hulton, Chetham Soc., Vol. XXX, 1853, pp. xl–xli), adds a “Thomas” as occurring in 1399, from Cal. Lett., V, p. 190, but has no mention of Roger Windesley as his predecessor. It would appear that, as suggested by Professor Tait, the pope's collation to Thomas Halsol (i.e. the S.W. Lancs. family of Halsall) did not take effect.]

Eugenius IV and all Souls College, Oxford

[The surviving Lateran Registers of Eugenius IV [1431–1447], which were dealt with in Vols. VIII and IX of the Calendar, published in 1909 and 1912, respectively, contain only one bull concerning archbishop Chichele's foundation of All Souls College, Oxford. (fn. 1) Many more, however, of the Lateran Registers of Eugenius are still missing, (fn. 2) and the loss has only to a very small extent been made good by the recovery in 1926 by Mgr. Angelo Mercati, Prefect of the Vatican Archives, of a number of fragments of the lost Registers of Eugenius amongst the Santini papers [fondo Santini], which he had acquired for the Archives. Among the fragments are fifteen consecutive folios, with the contemporary foliation numbers 96r.–110v., from a lost Lateran Register, containing eleven bulls of the ninth year (11 March, 1439–10 March, 1440) of Pope Eugenius in favour of All Souls. All of them except two are dated 21 June, 1439. A full summary of them is given below. (fn. 3)]

Ad uniuersas fidelium regiones. (An., etc., as above.) [8⅓ pp. Although the foundation charter provided for twenty scholars, the enrolment on the patent roll contains only the names of seven of them, viz. Thomas Lavenham, Robert Stephenes, Robert Seborgh, William Overton, Thomas Eston, Richard Warde and Richard Penwortham; see Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1436–1441, pp. 172–3. The pope's confirmation completes the list of the twenty original scholars by adding thirteen more names between Thomas Lavenham and Robert Stephenes, viz. those of Thomas Vange, Thomas Wynterbourne, Robert Hoo, Thomas Lay, Richard Letofte, William Hornede, John Gigour, John Porter, Walter Hert, Robert Karrewe, Simon Hoore, John Julian and Walter Hopton.
