|To Carbry Macaegaynd, dean of Clonfert. Collation, etc., as below. His recent petition contained that his father, Carbry Macaegaynd the elder, then dean of Clonfert, being old and desiring to resign the deanery in order that with the consent of the apostolic see (fn. 2) his said son should obtain it, sent him to the Roman court to get the matter expedited; (fn. 3) that, learning when he got there, that on account of his illegitimacy, as the son of the said Carbricus the elder, a priest, and an unmarried woman, related in the fourth degrees of kindred and affinity, he could not obtain the said deanery without an intermediate person after his said father, (fn. 4) he, at the advice of the lawyers, (fn. 5) got the said deanery to be freely resigned by the said Carbricus the elder, extra R. c., to a certain judge or commissary appointed by Sixtus IV; that the said judge admitted the resignation by papal authority extra dictam curiam, and by the said authority made collation and provision of the said deanery, thus void, to John Ochonoyul, priest, of the diocese of Clonfert; that after the said John had obtained possession of the said deanery, and had held it for some time, he freely resigned it, extra R. c., also to a certain judge or commissary appointed by the said pope; and that the said judge or commissary admitted the resignation by the said authority extra dictam curiam, and by the same authority made collation and provision of the said deanery, thus void, to the said Carbricus [the younger], who had been made a clerk, and had been sufficiently dispensed by the said pope, on account of the said defect, to hold the said deanery, in virtue of which collation and provision he obtained and still holds possession. His said petition adding that he fears that on account of the foregoing, and for other reasons, the said collation and provision does not hold good, and the pope having learned that the said deanery is still void, he hereby makes him collation and provision of it, a major dignity with cure, yearly value not exceeding 30 marks sterling, howsoever void, etc., and orders the bishop of Clonfert, the prior of the monastery of Clontuiasgerta Oma[ny], (fn. 6) in the diocese of Clonfert, and John Odo[n? ]ay, (fn. 7) a canon of Annaghdown, to induct him into possession, etc. Vite ac morum.
