Vite ac morum. (B. and Ja. Goyer. | B. viiii. Residuum gratis pro deo. Tertio Id. Octobris Anno Duodecimo. Valven.)
12 Kal. May.
Florence (f. 95d.)
To the bishop of Kilmacduagh, the prior of St. Michael's de Rupe alias de Ballymscelyg in the diocese of Ardfert, and the dean of Ardfert. Mandate to collate and assign to Thady Macrayth, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Clondagad in the diocese of Killaloe (who was lately dispensed, as the son of an abbot of the order of St. Augustine and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, and whose parents are of noble race) a canonry of Killaloe and the prebend of Cluoyndagad therein and the rectory, of the patronage of laymen, of the united parish churches of Ocormayc in the said diocese, value not exceeding 3 and 10 marks sterling respectively, void by the deaths without the Roman court of Philip Ohuollachan and Odo Omiygyr respectively; summoning and removing Cornelius Ohuercule and Philip Macinyth (rectius Macrayth) (fn. 2) priests, of the said diocese, who have respectively unduly detained possession for more than three years under pretext of collations made to them by authority of the ordinary after the collation had by the Lateran Statutes lapsed to the apostolic see, and on account of whose power Thady has no hope of obtaining justice in the city and diocese of Killaloe; notwithstanding that he holds the said vicarage, value not exceeding 10 marks sterling, and his said illegitimacy, on account of which the pope hereby dispenses him to hold the said canonry and prebend and rectory, and two other benefices with or without cure, compatible with one another, even if canonries and prebends or dignities etc., and to retain all for life, and resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, and hold instead five compatible benefices.

Florence (f. 99d.)
To the prior of SS. Peter and Paul's, Selleskerr'. in the diocese of Ferns. Mandate to collate and assign to Miles Deuros, clerk, of the diocese of Ferns, a canonry of Ferns and the prebend of Kylcom therein, with their annexed parish church of Kylrochane in the said diocese, value not exceeding 6 marks sterling, of which, on their voidance by the death without the Roman court of Thomas Wyote, bishop Robert made collation and provision to him by his ordinary authority, by vigour of which he holds them, but doubts whether the said collation and provision hold good, he not being yet a subdeacon, inasmuch as it appears that a statute of the church of Ferns forbids the holding of the said canonry and prebend and parish church except by one in the order of subdeacon; whether they be void as stated, or because the late John Wythen held them for more than two years without having been ordained subdeacon, or be void in any other way. Dignum etc. Exhibita siquidem nobis. (An. and G. de Elten. | An. xxii. Tercio Kal. Novembris Anno Duodecimo. de Adria.)

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern Italian description: Eugenio IV. 1442. Anno 12. Lib. 155. A flyleaf has the contemporary description Primus de prebendis vacantibus et dignitatibus vacantibus Anno xiio domini nostri Eugenii pape 4 (a like contemporary description occurs also, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume) and the name 'Cristoforus' after which a different contemporary hand (presumably that of Cristoforus himself) has added the word 'rubricauit.'
2 As it is written several times further on in the letter.
3 Without the condition 'si de Hibernia oriundus sit,' which occurs in the mandate on f. 285d., below.
