Mandate to collate and assign to William Downe, clerk, of the diocese of York, St. Peter's, Bradestrete, London, value 20 marks, void by reason that John Burton, priest, of the diocese of Lincoln, who held it, obtained St. Gregory's in St. Paul's churchyard (atrio), and detained it together with St. Peter's for a month and more without obtaining dispensation, and still detains it.

To the archdeacon of Oxford in Lincoln. Mandate to cause to be collated and assigned to Richard Schawe, canon of the king of England's free chapel of St. George in Windsor castle, if found fit after the usual examination in Latin, the church of Farnham, in the diocese of Lincoln, value 20 marks. Richard formerly obtained dispensations on account of illegitimacy—(i) to be ordained and hold a benefice even with cure; (ii) to exchange it for another; after which he obtained the church of Cherleton, and exchanged it for a canonry and prebend in the king's free chapel of St. Stephen's in Westminster palace. Upon the voidance of Farnham by the resignation, made to John, bishop of Lincoln, of Thomas Middelton, Richard was presented by the lay patron and instituted by the said bishop. Subsequently he obtained dispensation (no mention being made of his having got possession of Farnham) to hold one other benefice, and to exchange it and his canonry and prebend of St. Stephen's for two other mutually compatible benefices, after which he exchanged his canonry and prebend of St. Stephen's for a canonry and prebend of St. George's, Windsor, receiving meanwhile the fruits of Farnham, and converting them, to the sum of 100 marks, to the uses of that church. The pope has by other letters rehabilitated Richard in respect of the above, and has willed him to resign Farnham, which thus void he now orders to be given to him as above. He has hereby special dispensation to hold Farnham.

(who died without disposing thereof) by the consecration at the apostolic see, of John, papal chaplain and auditor, promoted to the see of Hereford by that pope; even though a suit between the said bishop and Reginald Hilton, priest, of the diocese of Lichfield, about the said church and chapels, has remained undecided in the Roman court; and notwithstanding that he holds canonries and prebends of Wells and St. Asaph, and the precentorship of Wells, and is litigating in the apostolic palace about a canonry and prebend of Hereford, the value of all which is 100 marks, and that he has lately had provision from the pope of a canonry with expectation of a prebend in Abergwely, in Landdewibrevy in the diocese of St. Davids, in St. Davids, and in Lincoln, and of a dignity, personatus, or office with or without cure in Lincoln. He has hereby dispensation to hold for three years the said church and chapels with his precentorship, which has cure and is not a major dignity. One of the two is meanwhile to be exchanged for another benefice compatible with the remaining one; otherwise the precentorship is to be resigned. Upon his obtaining Meyvot the provision of a canonry of Lincoln with expectation of a prebend and dignity, personatus, or office shall be null and void as far only as regards a dignity, personatus, or office with cure.
