To the bishop of Annaghdown, the abbot of St. Mary's de Portu patrum, Annaghdown, and the dean of Annaghdown. Mandate, as below. The perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Fuoranmor in the diocese of Annaghdown, of the patronage of laymen, became void because John Macgillanemach, when holding the rectory of the parish church of Ardrahin in the diocese of Kilmacduagh (Duacen.), obtained it, canonically collated to him by authority of the ordinary, on its voidance by the resignation of Maurice Ymulbrenaynd to the late John bishop of Annaghdown, and detained it and the said rectory of Aldrahin (sic) together for more than a month without papal dispensation, against ‘Execrabilis,' wherefore it became reserved to the pope, although a certain David Vallensis, having obtained it by collation by authority of the ordinary, has detained it for more than a year without any other tittle of right, and still detains it. The pope therefore orders the above three to collate and assign it, value not exceeding 4 marks sterling, provided that the said patrons consent, to Thomas Obraeyn, clerk, of the diocese of Tuam, who was lately dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy 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; summoning and removing the said David.

Charles, who alleges that the rector and vicar of the said church cannot, on account of the slenderness of the fruits of the rectory and vicarage, have a fitting income for food and clothing and for the fabric of the church, is hereby dispensed to receive the vicarage and to detain it and the rectory, if he obtain it, together for life, notwithstanding the said defect etc. Vite etc. (P. and G.

To the abbot of Macosquin (de Claro fonte) in the diocese of Derry (Deren.). Mandate as below. The pope has been informed by John Maccolgan, priest, of the diocese of Derry, that David Omuylmochaera, [now] perpetual vicar of the parish church of Magbili in the said diocese, (fn. 5) in order that he might obtain it, committed simony with Henry Maccolgan, priest, of the said diocese, then behaving as vicar of the said parish church, (fn. 6) by paying him about 5 marks sterling, to the shame of the priestly order. The collation and provision made to David of the said vicarage (fn. 7) and their consequences being therefore without force, the pope hereby orders the above abbot, if John (who is a priest, and was lately dispensed by papal authority, on account of illegitimacy 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) accuses David before the abbot, to summon David and others concerned, and if he find the foregoing to be true, to declare the said collation and provision to have been without force, and remove David, and in that event to collate and assign the vicarage, value not exceeding 16 marks sterling, to John.

Gonne. | P. xii. Residuum gratis pro deo. Sextodecimo Kal. Julii Anno Primo. de Varris.) [2 pp.]

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1450. Anno i. Lib. 3.’ The usual note by Mgr. Wenzel does not occur. There is no contemporary flyleaf, but the usual contemporary description is on the bottom edge of the volume, viz. ‘Tertius de beneficiis vacantibus anno primo domini nostri domini Pii pape secundi.’ There are [i]—cccxix. ff. of text, the first eight of which are much worn as a result of damp.
2 The ‘Pridie’ is added in the margin by P. [de Varris].
3 adeo quod parrochianis dicte ecclesie sacramenta ecclesiastica nisi cum stando (rectius scandalo? ) et periculo ministrare non potest per se ipsum.
4 super gradu (? rectius defectu) huiusmodi.
5 perpetuus vicarius parrachialis (sic) ecclesie gerente (sic) de Magbili dicte diocesis.
6 se tunc pro vicario dicte parrochialis ecclesie gerente. The above ‘gerente' is evidently an erroneous anticipation of this one.
7 This is the first intimation that the simony resulted in David's obtaining collation. The text is probably defective in this respect, as it is in others.
8 in quibus copia tabellionum et notariorum publicorum non habebatur.
