(f. 2.)
To William Symond, rector of Staunton Harecourt in the diocese of Lincoln, bachelor of canon law. Grant and dispensation as below. Martin V dispensed him to hold for five years with the parish church of Muresley in the diocese of Lincoln any benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if another parish church etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased; and, upon his setting forth to the said pope that in virtue of the said letters he had obtained the perpetual vicarage of Ambresdon in the said diocese, and had held it for some time with Muresley, and that, having resigned the said vicarage he had obtained the parish church of Bukynhull in the said diocese, and that the end of the said period was at hand, the said pope prolonged it by other seven years; and upon its being set forth on his behalf to the present pope that in virtue of the said other letters he had successively resigned Muresley and Bukynhull and obtained Staunton Harecourt and Stanlake in the said diocese, the pope prolonged the said seven years to William's life, by letters in which it was stated that he was of noble race and a completed (fn. 2) bachelor of canon law, and that the value of the said two churches did not exceed 40 and 20 marks sterling respectively. At his recent petition (containing that he is not of noble birth, that although he is a bachelor of canon law he is not a completed bachelor, and that the said value is not in marks but in pounds sterling, and that therefore, as also because the said letters do not mention that he was holding at the date thereof a canonry and prebend in Lismore, value not exceeding 10l. sterling, he fears that they may be held surreptitious) the pope grants that his said letters and their consequences shall nevertheless hold good from the date thereof, and dispenses him to hold two incompatible benefices for life, even if two dignities etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, etc. notwithstanding his late ordinance to the contrary [see above, p. 5], etc. Litterarum etc. (An. and G. de Elten. | An. l.
