|To David de Hamylton, dean of Aberdeen, S.T.B. Dispensation as below. Lately he, holding the parish church
of Cummok in the diocese of Glasgow, and having had provision ordered by papal authority to be made to him of the deanery of Glasgow, a major dignity with cure, was dispensed by the said authority to hold for life them, or the deanery and any benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, and to resign both, simply or for exchange [Cal. Lett. VII, p. 258]. Afterwards, provision of the parish church of Kirkkiner in the diocese of Whiteherne having been ordered by the same authority to be made to him [ibid, p. 425], he was dispensed by the said authority to hold the said deanery and two churches together for five years, and to resign meanwhile Kirkkiner, simply or for exchange, and hold in its stead another incompatible benefice, with the condition of resigning, after the lapse of the said five years, Cummok [ibid]. Subsequently Martin V made provision to him of the deanery of Aberdeen, a major elective dignity with cure, value not exceeding 60l. sterling, previously reserved, requiring him upon obtaining it to resign, if he won it, that of Glasgow, about which he was litigating, or give up his suit and all right, as is contained in letters of the present pope, Martin V having died before his letters of provision were drawn up [Cal. Lett. VIII, pp. 412, 413]. The pope hereby dispenses him (who is also a bachelor of canon law and M.A., is a kinsman of several barons of Scotland, and holds the said churches of Cummok and Kirkkiner, whose value does not exceed 120l. sterling, the chapel without cure of St. Thomas the Martyr without the walls of Glasgow and a canonry of Brechin and the prebend called the vicarage, value not exceeding 8l. and 20l. respectively, and to whom provision was lately made by the said authority of a canonry of Glasgow and the prebend called Glasgow Primo and of the hospital of Rothfen in the diocese of Aberdeen, wont to be assigned to secular clerks as a perpetual benefice, value not exceeding 60l. and 40l. respectively, and who is still litigating about the said deanery of Glasgow, value not exceeding 80l.) to hold the said deanery of Aberdeen and churches of Cummok and Kirkkiner together for life, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, and hold instead for life other three incompatible benefices. Nobilitas generis, litterarum etc. (An. and Cincius. | An. xxxxv. de Adria.) [See also Cal. Lett. VII, pp. 241, 242.]|
|Ibid. (fn. 4) |
|To Peter Stukle, rector of Walsokne in the diocese of Norwich, B.C.L. Decree that these presents shall suffice as proof of the dispensation granted to him, of great noble race, by Martin V on 13 Kal. Sept. anno 9  to hold for life, besides Walsokne, value not exceeding 100 marks sterling, any benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, and to resign both, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased; the said pope's letters not having been drawn
up before his death. Racioni congruit. (An. and Ja. de Ugolinis. | An. xxxx. de Adria.) [See Cal. Lett. VIII, p. 387, for a similar decree.]|
|To William Lassels, archdeacon of Huntyngdon in Lincoln. A like decree, and for the same reason, in regard to the indult granted to him by Martin V on 4 Id. May anno 13  to visit, as long as he should hold it, his said archdeaconry by deputy, whilst studying at an university or when hindered by illness or other lawful cause, and to receive the procurations in money. Racioni etc.|
|Concurrent mandate to the abbot of St. Albans, and the deans of London and Salisbury. Racioni etc. (An. and Ciprianus, Ja. de Vicencia. | An. xviii. xx. de Adria.)|
|To Thomas Bekynton, archdeacon of Buckingham in Lincoln. A like decree, and for the same reason, in regard to the indult granted to him by Martin V on 5 Id. Oct. anno 10  to visit for life his said archdeaconry and any other archdeaconry which he might hold in future, and to receive the procurations in money. Racioni etc.|
|Concurrent mandate to the bishops of London and Salisbury and the abbot of St. Albans. Racioni etc. (An. and Cyprianus, Ja. de Vicencia. | An. xxv. xxvii. de Adria.)|
|To Edmund Awsteyn, priest, of the diocese of Kildare, B.C.L. A like decree, and for the same reason, in regard to (i) the rehabilitation granted to him by Martin V on 13 Kal. Oct. anno 13 , he having (after being dispensed by papal authority, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure) obtained, without any other dispensation on account of the said defect, by collation of the ordinary, a canonry and prebend of Kildare, which he resigned to the said pope; (ii) the same pope's dispensation, granted to him at the same time, to hold any mutually compatible benefices, with or without cure, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased. Racioni etc. (Ja. and Anselmus. | Ja. xxxx. Aprutin.) [For an almost identical and cancelled letter see Cal. Lett. VIII, p. 345.]|
