Vatican Regesta, Vol. DCCLIX. (fn. 1)

Bullarum Liber LXII.

8 Innocent VIII.

8 Id. Oct.
(8 Oct.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 312v.)
To Master Filinus Sandeus, (fn. 2) a papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of George Brun, priest, of the diocese of St. Andrews, contained that a dispute arose between him and the late Thomas Hamylton’, clerk, about a canonry of Dunkeld (Dunchalden.) and the prebend called [the prebend] of Ferin therein, provision of which the said George alleged to have been made to him by authority of the ordinary, although perhaps de facto, and that he had obtained possession of the said canonry and was in possession of it, and that the said Thomas had unjustly opposed, and was opposing, the said provision, and had hindered, and was hindering, him from peacefully obtaining possession of the said canonry and prebend, and had intruded, and was intruding himself in the said prebend, the said Thomas, on the contrary, alleging that they lawfully belonged to him; that the pope, at the instance of the said George, committed the cause, although not lawfully devolved to the Roman court, etc., to the above auditor, who is said to have cited the said Thomas, and also Nicholas Marrandi (?) (intruded in the said prebend after the death of the said Thomas) and Richard Rollok [sic] and Walter Sinal [? recte Smal], clerks, and is also said to have proceeded, in the matters concerning the said George, Nicholas, Richard, and Walter, to divers other acts, short of a conclusion. (fn. 3) Seeing that, whilst the said suit has thus been pending, it is alleged that none of the said George, Nicholas, Richard and Walter has any right in or to the said canonry and prebend, the pope hereby orders the above auditor, if by the event of the suit he find that this is so, to collate and assign the said canonry and prebend, yearly value not exceeding 24l. sterling, howsoever void, to the said George, removing any unlawful detainer. Vita ac morum. [4 pp. In the margin at the end: ‘De(cembris).’]


  • 1. On the back of the volume: ‘Inn. viii. Bullar. An. vii, viii. Lib. lxii.’ On the front cover of the original sheepskin binding, preserved at the beginning of the volume, is the contemporary ‘lxii. Bull. dni. Inn.,’ ‘R(ecipe) Castello,’ and ‘Phy.’; and on the back of it is the usual later ‘Innocentius viii. Bullarum lib. 62.’ There are ff. i–lxx–71–343 of text, and no ‘rubricelle.’
  • 2. Seemingly written ‘Magistro Felino Sandeo,’ but the writing is very vague. In Reg. Vat. DCCLXI, f. 2v., he is addressed clearly as ‘dilecto Filio [Magistro] Felino de Sandeis.’
  • 3. nos causam huiusmodi non obstante quod ad Romanam curiam legitime devoluta ac apud eam de juris necessitate tractanda et finienda non esset, etiam in concernentibus sua communiter vel divisim in premissis interesse putantes in executione citationis desuper decernende nominandos, tibi ad dicti Georgii instantiam audiendam commisimus et fine debito terminandam, tuque in causa huiusmodi ad decretum citationis tam dicti Thome quam sua interesse putantium huiusmodi executioni demandare tam contra eundem Thomam quam Nicolaum Marrandi (?) in dicta prebenda defuncto eodem Thoma intrusum et Richardum Rollok [sic] ac Walterum Sinal (? recte Smal) qui se gerunt pro clericis dilectos filios, ac etiam in concernentibus cosdem Georgium Nicholaum Richardum et Walterum ad nonnullos alios actus citra tamen conclusionem diceris processisse.
