To the provost of Elphin. Mandate as below. The pope has learned that the rectory of rural lands called the rectory of Cunhy and Ocaissyn in the diocese of Killaloe (Laonien.), with cure and of the patronage of laymen, is void because Thady Maconma[ra], when holding it, obtained the perpetual vicarage of the parish church de Rylleo genendi (sic) in the same diocese, collated to him by authority of the ordinary, and has been so long void that by the Lateran statutes its collation has lapsed to the apostolic see; although the said Thady has by his own temerity, and without any papal dispensation or any tittle of right, (fn. 8) unduly detained it for five years, and still detains it, together with the saidvicarage. The pope therefore orders the above provost to collate and assign to Henry Olladrayn, priest, of the said diocese, if found fit, who from fear of Thady's power has no hope of obtaining justice in the city and diocese of Killaloe, the said rectory, value not exceeding 25 marks sterling, summoning and removing Thady and any other unlawful detainer.

To Cormac Osyridean. Nimeas Odioma (recte Odroma) and John Machmaelmarthaim, canons of Kilmore. Mandate as below. The pope has been informed by Sesfredus (? recte Seffredus i.e. Soffredus (?) or Goffredus) Macbradaid, clerk, of the diocese of Kilmore, that William Maqmeol (or Maqnieol, etc.), priest, of the said diocese, in order to obtain the perpetual vicarage of the plebs of Culbridin alias Seentuamair in the said diocese, of the patronage of laymen, made a bargain with the late John Macgnaissa, then vicar of the said plebs, and promised him that if he resigned it in William's favour, and if provision were made thereof to William, he would pay John yearly a part of its tithes; that John resigned it to Thady bishop of Kilmore who, perhaps ignorant of the said corruption, admitted the resignation by his ordinary authority, and made collation and provision to William, who in virtue thereof obtained possession and paid the said part of the tithes to John for some years, thereby incurring simony and the penalties promulgated therefor. The pope therefore orders the above three, if and after Sesfredus, who is illegitimate, being the son of an unmarried man of a noble and ducal race and an unmarried woman, related in the triple fourth degrees of affinity, accuses William before the above three, to summon William and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be true, to declare the said collation and provision and their consequences null, and remove William, and in that event to collate and assign the vicarage, with cure and value not exceeding 3 marks sterling, if the patrons consent, to Sesfredus; notwithstanding that the pope lately made him provision of a canonry of Kilmore with reservation of a prebend and a dignity etc. therein, and also of a benefice with or without cure, even if etc., in the collation etc. of the said bishop or the chapter etc. of the said church, and dispensed him to receive and retain such canonry and prebend and dignity etc. and such benefice.

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Pio ii. 1461. Anno 4. Lib. i.,’ and on a modern flyleaf is Mgr. Wenzel's ‘An. 4 to. 3.’ A contemporary and damaged flyleaf has, in different contemporary hands, the description: ‘Primus de beneficis vacantibus anno quarto domini nostri domini Pii pape ii,’ the order: ‘R(ecipe) Matheus, P. (i.e. P. de Varris),’ and the corresponding: ‘Rubricatus [est] per Matheum’ (the rest of the name has gone). A like contemporary description: ‘Primus …’ occurs as usual on the bottom edge of the volume. There are i.–cccx. ff. of text.
2 suorum status et honoris immemor, ac fame prodigus deique timore postposito, sevis crudelitatibus se immiscens ac arma etiam invasiva suscipiens, cum diversis aliis armatis gentibus in diversis conflictibus et actibus sagi[t]tando homicidia perpetrare, et postmod(um) de propriis sagittis per eum taliter emissis et homicidiis commissis se gloriari et iactare, necnon periurii reatum, ac pudicicie laxatis habenis quandam focariam sive concubinam penes se tenere palam et publice non expavit.

4 Non obstantibusseu quod dictus Gilacius ut similiter asserit vicariam ecclesie de Kyllmohorog predictam cuius fructus redditus et proventus quatuor marcharum sterlingorum similium secundum dictam extimationem valorem annuum non excedunt obtinet, ac defectum patetur antedictum. Nos enim cum eodem Gilacio ut vicariam ecclesie de [the passage from ‘de Kyllmohorog’ to ‘ecclesie de’ is added in the margin, and subscribed H., i.e. H. Folani.] Cumhy huiusmodi si sibi vigore presentium conferatur recipere et retinere libere et licite valeat, defectu predicto ac Pictavensis concilii necnon quibusvis aliis constitutionibus et ordinationibus apostolicis ceterisque contrariis nequequam obstantibus, eadem auctoritate apostolica tenore presentium de uberioris dono gratie dispensamus. Volumus autem quod dictus Gilacius quamprimum vigore presentium eandem vicariam de Cumhy fuerit pacifice assecutus, obtemptam (i.e. obtentam) vicariam huiusmodi quam ex nunc vacare decernimus omnino dimittere teneatur. The pope's will seems to nullify the dispensation which he has just granted.
5 See above, p. 109, note.
6 Here with the spellingsIniscronan,’ ‘Osyda’ and ‘obtentam.’ This is an example of what very rarely occurs in the Registers, namely, the registration twice of the same bull. Apparently there were two expeditions, one on 6 March and the other on 23 March, 1461–2. The larger amount of space occupied in the second case is due to the larger writing of the scribe who registered it.
7 The ‘tertio’ is added in the margin by P. [de Varris].
8 seu alicuius (? rectius aliquo) juris aminiculo.
9 The ‘t’ has been corrected.
10 See above, p. 109, note.
11 The words ‘decano ac Cormaco Osuirdean’ are added in the margin by O. [Pontanus].
12 The ‘ir,’ if it be ‘ir,’ is apparently written upon an erasure, and is therefore obscure.
