De Regularibus

2 Non. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 164.)
Confirmation of the confirmation by Thomas, archbishop of Canterbury, of the letters of dimission granted by Master William Milton, inceptor in civil law, canon of Salisbury, his commissary-general in his metropolitical visitation, to the abbot and convent of Lillushull, in the diocese of Coventry and Lichfield, of the Augustinian order of Arouaise (Arrewasie). Exemplification is given of the archbishop's letters which, dated in his lodging at London 2 March 1409[-10], the 14th year of his translation, mention the parish church of St. Alkmund, Shrewsbury, with its members, namely the churches of Atyngham and Lillushull [and] Farnburgh in the said diocese; Badmynton in that of Worcester; Essebi in that of Lincoln; Holme next the Sea in that of Norwich, the vicars’ portions alone being excepted. The pope further makes the usual grant, namely, that in future visitations of the archbishops or ordinaries the present letters shall suffice to prove the right of the abbot and convent, and that they shall not be compelled to exhibit their original titles. Ad perp. rei mem. Sacre religionis.
6 Non. March.
(f. 193.)
Indult—at the recent petition of John, master, and the brethren and sisters of the order of Sempyngham, containing that although St. Gilbert, in instituting the order by papal authority, ordained that all its regular members of both sexes, except only the sick, should for ever abstain from flesh, nevertheless Nicholas IV, considering that the men were daily suffering in health, granted indult to the then master that he and his successors and the chapter might modify the said ordinances, by virtue of which indult the then master and the chapter ordained that the said regular members might at certain times in the year eat flesh, but without the refectory, the which has been observed for a hundred years and more— for the said John and his successors, with consent of the chapter, to dispense any member of the order, of either sex, to eat flesh on lawful days, except those who are under a vow of abstinence or those upon whom such abstinence has been enjoined as a punishment. Ad fut. rei mem. Sacre religionis.
2 Non. Dec.
(f. 245.)
Indult, at the recent petition of the Premonstratensian abbot and convent of Talley in the diocese of St. Davids—containing that although their monastery has, by frequent incursions of men-at-arms, been despoiled, burned and almost destroyed, nevertheless the visitors of the order summon them or some of them, contrary to custom, to places distant about 80 miles from Talley—that in future they shall not, for purpose of such visitation, be summoned beyond a legal day's journey, but that the visitors shall repair in person to the monastery or to a fit place within the said distance. Ad fut. rei mem. Pro singulorum.
15 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.

Mandate to collate and assign to John Osyredean, priest, canon of the Premonstratensian monastery of Holy Trinity, Lochke, in the diocese of Elphin, the priory— which is without cure, is not a dignity, is not conventual nor elective, depends on the said monastery and is wont to be governed by canons thereof, removed and recalled to their cloister at the sole pleasure of the abbot, and whose value does not exceed 5 marks—of Trinity Island (Insule Sancte Trinitatis), Lochuach [t] air, in the diocese of Kilmore, void by the death of Maurice Oduilinean.

(f. 312d.)
To John Fitzhenre, Augustinian canon of Newburgh (de Novoburgo) in the diocese of York. Dispensation to him—who has had papal dispensation, as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure—to hold any benefice with or without cure, even if wont to be governed by secular clerks and if of the patronage of laymen, and to resign it, for exchange or otherwise, as often as he pleases. Religionis etc.
