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.

|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.)|
