To John Forest. Collation and provision of the archdeaconry of Surrey in Winchester, a non-major dignity, value not exceeding 240 marks, still void and reserved as below. The pope made provision to John, [now] bishop of Lichfield, then archdeacon of Surrey, of the see of St. Davids, and granted him indult to retain, even after his consecration or after the lapse of the canonical time for consecration, and until he should be translated to a fatter (pinguiorem) church, whatever benefices he then held [as above, p. 443], upon which translation he was to resign the said archdeaconry. Subsequently bishop John was translated from St. Davids to Lichfield, having previously resigned the archdeaconry, and king Henry, perhaps in ignorance of the pope's reservation, presented the above John Forest to bishop Henry, who, perhaps also in ignorance, instituted him, which presentation and institution are therefore null, the archdeaconry being still void by the said resignation. The present provision is made notwithstanding that Forest holds the canonry and prebend of Bannebury in Lincoln, and the wardenships, without cure, of the poor hospitals of St. Cross by Winchester and St. Nicholas, Portesmouth, in the diocese of Winchester, value not exceeding 110, 60 and 60 marks respectively. Vite ac morum.
