To John Cok, rector of Estbradenham in the diocese of Norwich, M.A. Grant as. below. Martin V, by letters dated 14 Kal. May, anno 11 [1428], in which John was described as of noble race, dispensed him to hold for ten years with the said church any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, and to resign both, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased. At his recent petition—containing that at the time of the expedition of the said letters he was not at the apostolic see, and that his agent (sollicitator) in the Roman court expressed in the said dispensation, from which the said letters were expedited, that he was of noble race, whereas he was not; and that nevertheless, after obtaining the said dispensation, he obtained and has held for about three and a half years, together with the said church, that of Blundeston in the same diocese, value not exceeding 22 and 20 marks respectively—the pope grants to him, who is a priest, that the said letters are valid from the date thereof, as if they did not contain the said error. Litterarum etc. (Ja. de Langusto. | Collata per me A. de Perusio. P. de Vivianis.)
