De Beneficiis Vacantibus.

Kal. Jan.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 4.)
To Master James de Aquila, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate motu proprio as below. A cause having arisen between Peter Stapulton, canon of York, licentiate of canon and civil law, and the late John Henley, priest, about the church of Seggesfeld in the diocese of Durham—which, on its voidance because the said John, who held it, obtained and held therewith Howgton in the same diocese, Stapulton claimed under a papal mandate of provision, which Henley prevented from taking effect—Gregory XI, at Stapulton's instance, committed the cause, although not lawfully devolved to the apostolic see, to the late William de Herborth, papal chaplain and auditor. On the death of Gregory, Urban VI. committed it to the late Bartholomew, bishop of Lucera, then papal chaplain and auditor, who by a definitive sentence made provision of and adjudged Seggesfeld to Stapulton, imposing perpetual silence on Henley. Stapulton impetrated letters of execution from Urban VI, to certain judges [apparently those above, Reg. LXVII, f. 70d], under which he obtained possession. Afterwards pope Urban, for certain reasons set forth by Henley, gave commission to Master John Egidii, then papal chaplain and auditor, to restore to Henly (sic here, as below), his power of appeal, and upon his making appeal from the said sentence, committed it to Bertrand, bishop of Gubbio, then papal chaplain and auditor, who by a definitive sentence reversed that of Bartholomew. Stapulton's appeal therefrom was committed by pope Urban to the late Peter Gasconis, papal chaplain and auditor, and after he and divers other auditors had proceeded in the cause pope Urban died. The present pope committed it first to Master Henry de Westerholt and then to Nicholas, [now] elect of Girgenti, papal chaplains and auditors, the latter of whom has proceeded short of a conclusion. The cause being thus pending Henry, who was in possession and had despoiled Stapulton, died, upon which Stapulton obtained peaceable possession, but has been despoiled thereof by Walter (Valentinus) bishop of Durham, and his accomplices. Lest a fresh adversary arise the pope therefore motu proprio orders the above Master James to surrogate Stapulton to Henly's right, if any, to Seggesfeld, value not exceeding 200 marks, and to collate and assign to him such right. The auditor is further to collate and assign to him such church itself; notwithstanding that he holds the church of Befort, value not exceeding 50 marks, and that the pope has lately ordered provision to be made to him of a certain benefice without cure called the hospital of Kyrpeer, in the said diocese, value not exceeding 100 marks, possession of which he has not yet obtained, and of a benefice with or without cure in the common or several gift of the archbishop and the dean and chapter of York. Upon obtaining Seggesfeld he is to resign Befort, and the said provision shall be null as far as regards a benefice with cure only. Litterarum sciencia, vite ac morum. (De mandato.) [See Reg. XLVIII, f. 50, and Reg. LXVII, f. 70d. See also Cal. Lett. IV, p. 446.]

8 Boniface IX.

5 Id. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 72.)
To John Bremar. Provision motu proprio of the parish church of Hecham in Sutfolsia (sic), in the diocese of Norwich, value not exceeding 100 marks, void and reserved to the pope—under his late reservation of benefices void at the apostolic see—by the resignation, made to the pope this day, of Adam, cardinal priest of St. Cecilia's, who held it by papal grant. Vite ac morum.
Concurrent mandate to the bishops of Tuy and Ely. Vite etc. (De mandato.) [Two mandataries only.] [Not cancelled.]

De Diversis Formis.

11 Boniface IX.

11 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 91.)
Indulgence of the Portiuncula to penitents who on the feasts of St. Michael the Archangel and the Annunciation, and during the two days after the said feasts, visit and give alms for the fabric, conservation or repair of the church of St. Edmunds Salisbury; with indult for the provost and six priests chosen by him to hear the confessions. Univ. Christifid. etc. Licet is. (De mandato.)
3 Non. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 115d.)
To Roger White, priest, of the diocese of York. Grant to him—who was confessor and chamberlain (camerarius) of the late Adam, cardinal priest of St. Cecilia's, and to whom the pope made provision, with the anteferri clause, of a canonry with expectation of a prebend, of St. John's, Beverley, on Id. Nov. anno 1 [1389], and of St. Mary's, Southwell, on 18 Kal. Dec. [anno 1, i.e. 1389]; and who doubts whether, by reason of the multitude of expectants with the same clause, any of his said letters will within a brief space prove fruitful—that no one, of whatsoever dignity, cardinals and resident members of the pope's household alone excepted, shall be preferred to him, except under a grace making cerbatim mention of these presents and of his name and surname. Vite ac morum. (De mandato.)
3 Non. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 116d.)
To Thomas Walesby, rector of Berkyng, in the diocese of Norwich. Dispensation during five years to him, who is in minor orders only, from the obligation, on account of his said church or any other benefices, of being promoted to any holy orders while engaged in the service of king Henry or any other temporal or spiritual lord, or studying letters at an university. Vite etc.
2 Id. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
Exhortation to give alms for the repair of the bridge of Bradeforde, in the diocese of Salisbury, part of which has fallen, the rest threatening speedy ruin; with relaxation, during three years, of one year and forty days of enjoined penance to penitents who do so. Univ. Christifid. etc. Ad constructionem et reparacionem poneium.
Kal. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 180.)
To Robert Foulmore, rector of Falley, in the diocese of Winchester. Dispensation motu proprio to him—who holds, besides Falley, a canonry and prebend of the free royal chapel of St. Stephen the Protomartyr, within the king's palace of Westminster, the value of both not exceeding 120 marks—to hold for life, together with his said church or other benefice with cure, one other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if an elective dignity, major or principal respectively, personatus or office, in a metropolitan, cathedral or collegiate church, and to resign both, for exchange or otherwise, as often as he pleases, and to hold in their stead two other similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices. Vite ac morum. (De mandato.]
