Mandate, at the petition of Raymund (Remundus) Bremicham, dean of Tuam—containing that of old time the deans were wont to administer the common goods of the said church, but that for some years certain of its provosts have stirred up controversities and litigation against them in the matter, whereby the said church has suffered grave injury; and asserting that the said deanery is a major dignity, and that he is of a race of kings and dukes and has studied canon law for several years—after due inquiry to commit to him, as long as he holds the deanery, the exercise of the said administration. Ex apostolice servitutis. (An. and Ja. Goier. | An. xvi. de Adria.) [See below, ƒ. 76d.]
13 Kal. Jan.

To Malachy Offlanaghan, archdeacon of Mayo (Magionen.) Dispensation to him (who was lately dispensed by papal authority to hold together for five years the said arch- deaconry, a non-major dignity with cure, which he was then holding, and the perpetual vicarage of Brechmaid in the diocese of Mayo; and whose recent petition contained that he is still holding them together, value not exceeding 4 and 2 marks sterling respectively) so that he (who is of a race of dukes, to whom provision was lately ordered by the said authority to be made of a canonry of the said church and the prebend of Balla, value not exceeding 4 marks, and who is litigating in those parts about the said archdeaconry) may hold the said archdeaconry and vicarage together for life, and resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, and hold instead two other incompatible benefices, provided that they be not two parish churches or perpetual vicarages nor two major or principal dignities, nor one of each.

12 Kal. Nov.
Florence (f. 76d.)
To Raymund (Raymundo) Bremicham, priest, of Tuam. Rehabilitation as below. Martin V dispensed him, as the son of an unmarried man and an abbess professed of the order of St. Augustine, to be promoted to all, even holy orders. Subsequently he set forth to the present pope that, having been meanwhile tonsured, on the voidance of the rectory of Dummor in the diocese of Tuam by the death without the Roman court of Raymund Bremicham he was, without having obtained other dispensation on account of the said defect, presented by the patron, Thomas Bremicham, to the late John, archbishop of Tuam, and by him instituted, and under pretext thereof obtained it. Afterwards the present pope ordered provision to be made to him of the provostship of Tuam, a non-major dignity, void and reserved by Execrabilis because Thomas Obraen, priest, of the said diocese, had obtained it when holding the perpetual vicarage of Athnaryg(h) in the same diocese, and had held them together for more than a month, at the same time dispensing him to hold it and the said rectory together for life [Cal. Lett. VIII, pp. 651, 652], the pope's letters stating that he had been previously dispensed to hold a benefice even with cure. At his recent petition (containing that at the time of the said first letters he had been dispensed by authority of the ordinary on account of the said defect to be promoted to all minor orders, and that after that dispensation he was tonsured, and before the collation of the said provostship was promoted to all the said holy orders, and that the said unmarried man and abbess were related in the second degree of affinity and the fourth of kindred, of which no mention was made in the said letters, and that he, without any other dispensation, obtained possession, under pretext of the pope's said letters, of the said provostship, collated to him in pursuance thereof, and has detained together for four years it and the said rectory, which latter he had already detained for about three years) the pope grants to him (who is of a race of kings and dukes, who at the date of the said letters was ignorant of the said degrees of relationship, and also for the prosecution of his postulation to the church of Tuam came to the apostolic see at great danger and expense, and who has for many years studied canon law) rehabilitation on account of the aforesaid, but requires him to resign both provostship and rectory. Sedes apostolica, pia mater. (An. and Bornius. | An. xvi. de Adria.) [See above, f. 51 and Cal. Lett. VIII, p. 193.]
Ibid. (f. 77d.)To the bishop of Valva, the abbot of St. John the Evangelist's, Tuam, and Peter Ocormacayn, canon of Tuam. Grant, recapitulating the preceding, seeing that the above letters of dispensation of Martin V and of the present pope, and the above presentation and institution are without force, and the above rectory still void as above, that the said letters and dispensations shall hold good from the date of these presents, as if the said degrees of relationship had been fully mentioned, and as if the above Raymund had been sufficiently dispensed on account of the said defect; mandate to the above to collate and assign to him, after he has duly resigned it, the said rectory, value not exceeding 20 marks sterling; and indult to Raymund to minister in his said orders. Vite etc. (An. and Ja. Goyer. | An. xxx. Pridie Id. Decembris Anno Undecimo. de Adria.)

Mandate to dispense Walter Mure, nobleman, and Catherine Kenedi, noblewoman, of his diocese (fn. 3) , to marry notwithstanding that they are related in the second and third and the triple third and triple fourth degrees of affinity arising from divers sides of kindred, and also in the second and fourth degrees of kindred. Oblate nobis. (An. and Ciprianus. | An. xxx. de Adria.)
Ibid. (f. 118d.)To the prior of Durham and the archdeacons of Northumberland in Durham and Berks (Berkscirie) in Salisbury. Mandate, at the recent petition of Richard Uitton, dean of the collegiate church of Derlington in the diocese of Durham (containing that although the canons thereof receive by reason of their prebends fruits belonging to it, they do not trouble to reside in it and bear the burden of divine offices, to the no small detriment of the said church, the said dean being almost alone in keeping up divine worship) to summon the said canons and others concerned, and if they find the above to be true, to ordain that in future all the canons shall be bound to reside in person and continually, and serve in a decent habit, and that such of them as, by reason of a papal indult or other reasonable causes, cannot do so, shall be bound to provide fit and proper deputies, under pain of deprivation of their said fruits etc., the which shall be assigned to the persons who do so serve. Ad ea per que ecclesiarum. (B. and Ja. de Ugolinis. | B. xxxvi. Valven.) [See above, f. 47d and Reg. CCCLXXIX f. 147].

Rehabilitation, at his recent petition containing that on the voidance by the resignation of rector John Estby to the late William (fn. 4) [Grey] (fn. 5) bishop of Lincoln, of the church of Turresmera in the diocese of Lincoln, which is only habitually parochial (fn. 6) , and which within the memory of man has had no parishioners, John Langestone, the patron, presented him, then a scholar and not yet tonsured (fn. 7) , in about his twelfth year and without any canonical dispensation, to the said bishop or his vicar-general in spirituals, as being a priest and of sufficient age; that the said bishop or vicar instituted him as such, being described in the presentation as a priest; and that under pretext of the said presentation and institution he obtained the said church and has detained it for about six years. Besides rehabilitating him the pope grants that the said presentation and institution shall hold good from the date of these presents, and decrees that the said church, value not exceeding 3 marks sterling shall, as long as no parishioners enjoying parochial rights reside within its bounds, be compatible with any other benefice, and be a free chapel. Sedes apostolica, pia mater. (B. and G. de Elten. | B. xxxviii. Septimo Kal. Martii Anno Undecimo. Valven.)

1441.
3 Kal. Dec. Florence (f. 149.)
To the bishop of Killala. Mandate (Donatus, bishop of Kilmore, who ought to be written to, being for certain reasonable causes suspect to them, and it being otherwise difficult, dangerous and expensive to have access to him on account of the great distance of the place where he commonly resides), after imposing penance, to dispense to marry Donatus Yruarych, layman, and Dirborgail y[n]ge Concubayr, of the diocese of Kilmore, who lately, not in ignorance that they were related in the third and third degrees of affinity and the fourth and fourth of kindred, committed fornication several times and had offspring, which, with future offspring, is to be decreed (fn. 8) legitimate.

To the archbishop of Tuam. Mandate, after imposing penance, to dispense to marry Walter Bremicham, layman, and Mary de Angulo, of his diocese, who lately, not in ignorance that they were related in the third and third and the fourth and third degrees of affinity, and that previously espousals per verba de futuro had been contracted between Mary and a certain kinsman of Walter, related to him in the third degree of kindred, committed fornication several times and had offspring, which, with future offspring, is to be decreed (fn. 9) legitimate.

To the priors of St. Mary's, Cluaint uasgerthanassinna, and Dorean, in the diocese of Elphin, and the official of Elphin. Mandate as below. (fn. 11) The recent petition of Rory Ymochan, clerk, of the diocese of Achonry, contained that the late Charles Macdonnany, clerk, canon of Elphin, held and possessed at the time of his death a number of tithes, rents and goods, wont from of old to belong to the community of the church of Elphin and situate within the bounds of places in the cantred of Tyribrinyn, in the diocese of Elphin, possession of which is at present being unduly detained by certain useless clerical persons; and added that in the said church, of which Rory is also a canon, there do not exist sufficient distinct prebends for its canons, and that he has no benefice from which he can take any fruits. Rory further alleges that he is of noble race and has for some time studied canon law, and that the present pope recently ordered provision to be made to him (who was lately dispensed by authority of the ordinary, as the son of unmarried parents related in the third and fourth degrees of affinity, to be promoted to minor orders only and hold a benefice without cure, and then—provision having been made to him of a canonry of Elphin and another of Achonry with reservation of as many prebends, and provision having been ordered to be made to him of the provostship of Elphin and of the rectory of the rural lands of Ciulofind and Ranna in the diocese of Achonry—was dispensed by papal authority to receive and hold the said canonries and prebends, provostship and rectory) of the said provostship, which is a non-major dignity with cure, and of the said rectory, value not exceeding 12 and 10 marks sterling respectively, and dispensed him to hold them both for life, and by other letters made provision to him of a canonry of Elphin and another of Achonry with reservation of as many prebends. At his said petition the pope therefore orders the above to apply, appropriate, give, collate and assign to him the said tithes etc. for life. Ad ea ex apostolice. (An. and Ja. Goyer. | An. xx. de Adria.) [See below, p. 189.]
13 Kal. Jan.
Florence (f. 201.)
To John Kegill (or Regill) (fn. 12) , elect of Philippopolis (Philopolen (fn. 13) ). Faculty to him, to whom the pope lately (dudum) made provision of the said see, and who is a Friar Minor, at his own petition and that of John [Kempe], cardinal priest of St. Balbina's, seeing that he has no hope of receiving anything from the episcopal mensa of the said church, which is in the parts of the infidels, to receive in commendam, even after he has been consecrated, and to hold for life, any one benefice, secular or regular, with or without cure, even if it be a parish church or a perpetual vicarage or a chantry, and be of the common or several patronage of clerks and laymen, provided that it be not in a cathedral or a collegiate church, or without such one benefice another, or without such other another, and so on until he has obtained a benefice to the yearly value of 200 gold florins. Eximie devocionis. (An. and B. de Monte. | An. xxx. de Adria.) [See below, f. 232d, bis.]
10 Kal. Dec.
Florence (f. 208.)
To Peter Stucle, rector of Stokenham in the diocese of Exeter, B.C.L. Dispensation etc. as below. Martin V dispensed him to hold for life with the church of Walsokne in the diocese of Norwich any benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if a dignity etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased; and the present pope, on 13 Kal. June (sic) anno 9 [1439] dispensed him, who had meanwhile resigned Walsokne, and was holding Stokenham, to hold therewith for life any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, or if he resigned them, any other two benefices with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if two parish churches or perpetual vicarages, or dignities etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased, and hold instead two other incompatible benefices, as is contained in the present pope's letters drawn up in the matter of the said dispensation of his predecessor, and in his said last named letters. Peter's recent petition containing that at the said date 13 Kal. [July] he was holding the said church of Stokenham and the archdeaconry of Exeter, a non-major dignity, in force of the first named dispensation, and that he mentioned them in the last named dispensation, but did not mention that he was holding them by dispensation, the pope, seeing that the second named dispensation was not necessary as far as regarded the holding of such two benefices together, but was only opportune as regarded the holding of a third incompatible benefice along with the other two, hereby decrees and declares, at Peter's said petition and that of king Henry on his behalf, that the letters of the said second dispensation have held good from their date as far as regards the holding of a third incompatible benefice along with the other two incompatible benefices comprised in the first named dispensation, and that he could and can by vigour thereof receive and retain it for life together with the said two incompatible benefices, and resign it, simply or for exchange; with special dispensation hereby to hold the said archdeaconry and two parish churches or perpetual vicarages for life, or, if he resign them, other three incompatible benefices.

Litterarum etc. (An. and Cyprianus. | An. xvi. de Adria.) [See also above, f. 32d.]
Ibid.
(f. 214.)
To Robert, bishop of Durham. Indult to him, who considers that he has often fallen ill by taking food only once a day and eating fish, that a confessor of his choice may dispense him not to fast in Lent and on other fast-days, and to eat eggs and milk-meats.

The present pope recently (upon John's setting forth that the parish church of Dwngarwan in the diocese of Lismore has, besides a perpetual vicar who exercises the cure of souls of the parishioners, also a rectory or plebania, that in it and in each of the other churches annexed to it the cure of souls had been exercised, and could be conveniently exercised, by perpetual vicars, without the help of the rector, that the cathedral church of Lismore had few canonries and prebends, that if the said rectory or plebania, which is of the patronage of laymen, had its cure and burdens suppressed and extinguished, and became a prebend in the said church of Lismore in perpetuity or for John's life, and its fruits etc. applied to the endowment of a new canonry and prebend, in perpetuity or for. John's life, divine worship etc. would be increased in the said church of Lismore) ordered the abbot of Moelanvhy in the said diocese, if he found the foregoing to be true, and if the consent of the greater and sounder part of the chapter of Lismore and the assent of the patron of the said rectory or plebania were given, to suppress and extinguish the said cure and burdens in perpetuity or for John's life, and transfer them into a perpetual vicarage or the said cathedral church, and thereupon to create and erect a new canonry and to appropriate, apply and assign to it, in perpetuity or for John's life, for its prebendal endowment or prebend, all the fruits etc. of the said rectory or plebania, reserving, however, therefrom a fit portion for the said perpetual vicar or for him who should exercise the said cure, and to collate and assign the canonry and prebend, thus created, to John, as is more fully contained in the pope's letters. At his recent petition, containing that in the pope's said letters the clauses regarding the benefices held or expected by John, and those in or to which he had a right, were not expressed, and that he therefore doubts whether they may not be held surreptitious, the pope (fn. 14) grants to him (who was lately dispensed by papal authority, as the son of a deacon and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold any mutually compatible benefices with and without cure, of any number and kind, even if canonries and prebends, dignities etc., and resign them all, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased) that the said letters shall hold good from the date of these presents as if the said clauses had been expressed, and as if full and express mention had been made of the benefices which he holds and is expecting, of the benefices in or to which he has a right, and the values thereof (fn. 15) .

Before they proceed to execute these presents, he is to resign. Sedes apostolica. pia mater ... Exhibita siquidem nobis. (An. and B. de Monte. | An. xvi. de Adria.) [See Cal. Lett. VIII, p. 403.]

At Dermit's recent petition, containing that the said Thady duly made collation and provision to him, and that in virtue thereof he obtained and has held it for some time; and adding that some assert that the said Thady was not a canon of Kildare or of any other cathedral or metropolitan church, nor held a dignity or personatus, and that he therefore doubts whether the said collation and provision hold good, the pope hereby grants that they and their consequences shall hold good from the date of these presents as if the said Thady had been at the date of the said mandate etc. a canon of Kildare or otherwise a competent judge or executor. Vite etc. (An and Ja. Goyer. | An. Gratis pro deo. Quartodecimo Kal. Januarii Anno Undecimo. de Adria.) [See Cal. Lett. VIII, p. 559.]

Nobilitas generis, vite etc. (An. and G. de Elten. | An. xv. Residuum pro deo. Quintodecimo Kal. Martii Anno Undecimo. de Adria.) [See above, f. 256.]
