|To the precentor of the church called [the church] of Our Lady, St. Andrews, and the official of St. Andrews. (fn. 2) Mandate, as below. After Sixtus IV's reservation of all benefices with and without cure which should become void at the apostolic see, the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Kilmani (fn. 3) in the diocese of St. Andrews became void, and therefore reserved, as above, by the death at the said see of Andrew Zoung, to whom provision thereof had been made by papal authority, and who had not had possession; and the said pope, wishing to make a special grace to Alexander Dobi, priest, of the diocese of Glasgow (who alleged that Laurence Oburu (?), clerk, had for six years detained possession of the said vicarage, void as above, without any title), willed and granted under date 9 Kal. Dec. anno 13 [23 Nov. 1483], that the said Laurence and others concerned should be summoned, and that the said vicarage, yearly value not exceeding 9l. sterling, should be collated and assigned to the said Alexander, whether it were void as above, or by the deaths at the said see of James Scot and James Doles (to whom provision had respectively been made), or of Thomas Kanedi extra R.c., or by the resignation of the said Andrew, or James Doles, or James Scot, or Thomas, or because the said Andrew had been a continual commensal member of the household of Raphael, cardinal deacon of St. George's in Velabro, or whether it were void in any other way, etc. The said letters of pope Sixtus not having been drawn up by reason of his death, the pope hereby decrees that the said grant shall nevertheless take effect from the said date thereof, and that these presents shall be sufficient proof thereof, and orders the above two to summon the said Laurence and others concerned, and collate and assign the said vicarage to the said Alexander in accordance therewith, inducting him, and removing the said Laurence and any other unlawful detainer. Rationi congruit. [5 pp. In the margin at the end: ‘No (vembris).’]|
