11 Boniface IX.

De Exhibitis.

5 Id. Nov.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 12d.)
To the bishops of London, St. Davids and Tuy. Mandate motu proprio to collate and assign to John Doneys, canon of Chichester, the canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 20 marks, of Llanpet and Boghreth in Abergwilli, which he recently obtained by collation from Guy, bishop of St. Davids, on their voidance by the resignation of Walter Cook, made to the same bishop, it being asserted that the said collation does not hold good. Vite ac morum. (De mandato.)
2 Non. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 111.)
To the archbishop of Tuam, and the abbots of Cong (de Cunga) and Boyle (de Buellio) in the dioceses of Tuam and Elphin. Mandate to collate and assign to Benedict Omochan, clerk, of the diocese of Achonry (Akaden.), William Omochan and any other unlawful detainer being removed, the vicarage of St. Arhrachta, value not exceeding 12 marks, in the diocese of Achonry, collation of which was made to him by bishop Bernard, on its voidance by reason that William held it for more than a year without being ordained priest. Benedict doubts whether the collation holds good. Vite ac morum.
14 Kal. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 137d.)
To the bishops of Meath, Telese and Clonmacnoise. Mandate to collate and assign to Odo Ocallan, priest, of the diocese of Meath, the church of Lyn in that diocese, value not exceeding 10 marks, which he obtained on the resignation of Thomas Carpentere, made because he did not understand well the tongue of the parishioners, and therefore feared deprivation by the ordinary. The petition of Odo, who was presented by the lay patron and instituted by the ordinary, adds that for a certain time he received from Thomas to farm (in arrendam) the fruits of the said church before it was resigned, and therefore doubts whether the presentation and institution hold good. Vite ac morum.
8 Kal. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 153.)
To the bishop of Tuy, the abbot of St. Mary's Glastonbury, and the dean of Salisbury. Mandate motu proprio to collate and assign to Nicholas Slake, canon of Wells, the deanery of the same, an elective major dignity with cure, to which he was elected by the chapter on its voidance by the promotion, made by the pope, and the consecration of Henry, bishop of Lincoln, the election having been confirmed by Roger, archbishop of Canterbury; all which does not hold good by reason of the pope's late reservation of all dignities and other benefices void by papal provisions of cathedral churches. (Vite ac morum.)

De Diversis Formis.

2 Non. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 198.)
To the abbot of St. Mary's, Cong, in the diocese of Tuam. Mandate, if the facts be as stated, to grant dispensation to marry to Thomas de Burgo, knight, and Margaret de Burgo, damsel, of the said diocese, who cohabited, knowing that they were related in the second and third degrees of affinity. They are first to be absolved from the guilt of incest, and a salutary penance is to be enjoined. Past and future offspring is to be declared legitimate. Oblate nobis. (De mandato.)
Kal. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 198d.)
To the same. The like in regard to William, son of the late John de Burgo, donsel, and Joan, [daughter] of Robert Joy, damsel, of the diocese of Tuam, who cohabited, knowing that they were related in the second, third and fourth degrees of affinity. Oblate nobis. (De mandato.)
Id. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 199)
Indulgence of the Portiuncula to penitents who from the first to the second vespers of the Invention of the Cross in the month of May and the Exaltation of the Cross in the month of September, visit and give alms for the conservation of the church of the Benedictine monastery of St. Saviour, Faversham, in the diocese of Canterbury. Univ. Christifid. etc. Licet is. (De mandato.)
12 Kal. Nov.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 204.)
Confirmation of the foundation, building, assignations, appropriations, statutes and ordinances of the chantry or college of St. Mary by the cathedral church of St. Davids. The recent petition of the master and chaplains contained that the late bishop Adam, with consent of the chapter (by letters, of which exemplification is given, dated in the chapter-house of St. Davids on the Saturday after the feast of St. James the Apostle, 1368, the seventh year of the bishop's consecration) out of his own goods and with the assistance of the late John and Blanche, duke and duchess of Lancaster, founded and built the said college or chantry for a master and seven chaplains, one being precentor, with chapel, dwellings, cloister and other offices, in honour of St. Mary the Virgin, for his own soul, and for the souls of the said duke and duchess; that he endowed it with the patronage, which he obtained from certain nobles, of the churches of St. Ishmael and Langonor, Malros(sic), Haroldeston by the sea in Ros, and Nevern in Kemeys, in the diocese; that the hospital of Whytwell by the city of St. Davids—which Thomas Beke, Adam's predecessor, began to build and endow, and which was for some time, under the title of the priory of ‘la Whytwell,’ assigned to secular clerks, who gave no alms and did no other works of piety, and did not celebrate divine offices, but applied such of the endowment as they could acquire to profane uses—was likewise, on its voidance by the cession or death of John Harold, its rector, appropriated to the college by bishop Adam; that he ordained that the master and chaplains should sleep in the cloister, live in common, and perform day and night offices, that the master and one of the chaplains might hold one other benefice even with cure in the diocese, without obligation of residence thereon; that a precentor should be chosen; that 40l. of silver for the protection (tuicione) of the rights of the college should be kept in a chest in the treasury under three locks and keys, of which the first should be kept by the precentor of the cathedral, or in his absence by the treasurer thereof, the second by the master, and the third by one of the chaplains, chosen by the master and chaplains; that if any useful articles were omitted in the said foundation they should be drawn up in his codicils and treated as original, and that he and his successors and the chapter should be able to amend the originals; and that he also, with consent of the chapter, ordained, among other things, that the master and chaplains could let to farm to clerks or laymen their benefices without the college and those appropriated to it. They doubt whether the bishop's assignation and appropriation of the said hospital, value not exceeding 30 marks, to their college, whose value does not exceed 300, holds good. In addition to the present confirmation the pope ordains, in order to obviate inconvenience through the absence of the precentor and treasurer of the cathedral, that the first key shall be kept by the precentor of the college, and that the college shall henceforth be no longer called a chantry but a college. Ad perp. rei mem. Ex debito collati. (De mandato.)
Kal. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 225)
To the bishop of Durham. Mandate, if the facts be as stated in the recent petition of Thomas de Dalby, archdeacon of Richmond—namely that, in consequence of the appropriation by the present pope to the abbot and convent of St. Mary's Jervaulx, of the church of Aykeskarth alias Ayschearg (already taken possession of) and the vicarage of Est Wytton, with power to appoint and remove at pleasure their monks or secular priests, he and his successors will be defrauded of the usual emoluments at voidance—to compel the abbot and convent to pay to him and his successors yearly portions from the fruits of the said churches. Ad ea per que personarum.
Id. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 230.)
Indulgence of the Portiuncula to penitents who from the first to the second vespers of the feasts of the Invention and Exaltation of Holy Cross visit and give alms for the repair and conservation of the chapel of St. Cross in the church of Tatersale, in the diocese of Lincoln; with indult for the warden of the chantry of the said chapel and five priests, religious or secular, appointed by him, to hear the confessions. All the oblations shall be at the disposition of the warden for the said purposes. Univ. Christifid. etc. Licet is. (De mandato.)
Kal. Aug.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 231.)
To the bishop of Norwich. Mandate, if the facts be as stated, to dispense Richard Laxham and Catherine Willelm (sic) to remain in the marriage contracted by them in ignorance that they were related in the fourth degree of kindred, declaring their past and future offspring legitimate. Oblate nobis.
16 Kal. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 232.)
To the bishop of Lincoln. Mandate to recall to his priory John Wodestok, canon of St. Frideswyde's, Oxford, who was lately made a papal chaplain, and who has, under pretext of the pope's letters of appointment, and of certain proceedings in regard to them made by Conrad, archbishop of Nicosia, papal chamberlain, withdrawn himself from his priory, and from the obedience of his superior, and has led a dissolute life. If he disobey he is to be publicly excommunicated, the aid of the secular arm, if necessary, being invoked. Ad circumspectam.
12 Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 242.)
To John Bolden, clerk, of the diocese of Durham.

(f. 255d.)
To William Gybbvuns (sic), priest, of the diocese of Lichfield.

Sedes apostolica.
