To Stapulton, being then rector of Owytb[u]rn in the same diocese and bachelor of canon and civil law, Gregory XI by letters dated Non. May anno 7 [1377], willed Seggefeld to be collated and assigned as being void by reason that John de Henlay held it, together with Howton, in the same diocese; notwithstanding that he held Owytb[u]rn, which he was to resign upon getting Seggefeld, that he held a canonry of York with expectation of a prebend and dignity under his letters, which letters were to be null as far as regarded such dignity only, and that he was expecting under other of his letters a benefice without cure in the gift of the archbishop of York. Pope Gregory having died before his letters about Seggefeld were drawn up, Urban VI decreed that they should hold good from their said date, and ordered as above. Provisionis nostre. [See Reg. LXXXII f. 4].

Mandate to induct into possession of the archdeaconry of Glendalough, a dignity, Maurice Obryn, clerk, of the diocese of Limerick, and to remove Thomas Snel and any other. Upon the pope learning lately that it had become void and reserved under the constitution Execrabilis, by reason that Snel had obtained and held therewith without dispensation the rectory of Galterum in the diocese of Meath, he ordered the bishop and dean of Clogher and Thomas Waper (sic) canon of Dublin, to collate and assign it to Obryn. The latter's recent petition contained that Gerald Obroin, canon of Kilfenora, acting as sub-executor, has made provision to him by a sentence which the pope hereby confirms and orders to be executed. Dudum siquidem per nos. (De mandato.) [See below Reg. cxiii f. 206.]
11 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 82.)
To William Beverley, priest, of the diocese of Winchester. Dispensation on account of irregularity contracted, so that he may minister in his orders and keep his benefices and hold others, with or without cure and compatible; with rehabilitation. One day when in the town of Bletchingli in the said diocese, whither he had gone for a walk (spaciatum ivisti), being asked by a priest where he was going, he replied that he was going to a house in the town to drink with a friend. The priest said “If you will pay for my drink I will go with you,” to which he agreed, and when they had well drunk (bene potati) and were going away the priest asked him if he would go to another house, saying he would give (propinaret) him some of his own beer. They went, and while talking of divers things in that other house, in which was a woman who took offence (scandalizata), the priest said “He who offends (scandalizat) another sins in hope (peccat in spc).” “How do you understand this word hope?” said William. “I understand it as well as you,” replied the priest. “No doubt you do,” said William, “but, please explain the word.” And when William had made some more jokes about the same matter, the priest taking them ill, began to abuse him, and went off to his own house. As William was returning from the town, he passed the priest's house. The priest was within the door, and on seeing William approach he firmly tied his hood to his head (ligavit et connexit); and, on William saluting him in a friendly way, said in a great rage “What do you want with me?", to which William replied “Nothing, save your very good health.” The priest, sharpening more and more his evil intent, followed him a good distance in a hostile way, all the time making as though he would spit in his face; on which William said “ I beg you by the love of Christ to leave me and not tempt me so,” and, believing that the priest carried no arms, added “As you have no arms on you (super te) what can you do?” At this the priest cried furiously and like a madman “Now I'll let you see if I've no arms on me,” and would have drawn a knife which he said he wore at his side, and William, thinking that as the priest was only four feet off he would be killed, drew his dagger (basclardum) to defend himself, but with no intention of wounding, and struck the priest over the head, so that in five days, from the blow or neglect or want of a doctor, he died, for which William is extremely sorry. Vite ac morum. (De mandato.)
Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 84d.)
To Robert Derfeld, clerk, of the diocese of York. Dispensation, on account of illegitimacy as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, and of defect of age, to be ordained subdeacon and deacon when in his eighteenth year, and priest on attaining the lawful age, and to hold and exchange two benefices with or without cure. His illegitimacy and defect of age need not be mentioned in future graces. Vite ac morum. (In margin: Cancelletur alia, si reperiatur, quia per istam corrigitur.)
9 Kal. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 88d.)
To John Wykeham, rector of Crondale in the diocese of Winchester, licentiate of canon law. Dispensation to him, who then, as now, holding canonries of Chichester, Lincoln, and Exeter, with expectation of prebends, under letters of the present pope, as well as Crondale, was lately dispensed [Reg. Lat. XIV, f. 229] to hold for three years, together with Crondale, one other benefice, even if a dignity, personatus or office with cure, or a parish church, and to exchange both as often as he pleased for similar or dissimilar benefices, with the condition of exchanging within the said period one of such incompatible benefices for another compatible with the remaining one, or, if not, of resigning the first of them obtained, after which he obtained Broghton in the diocese of Lincoln, which he still holds, value with Crondale not exceeding 200 marks—so that he, who has also had from the pope provision of a canonry of St. Mary's, Stettin, in the diocese of Cammin (Caminen.), with expectation of a major prebend, may continue to hold the said two parish churches even after the impending expiry of the said term, exchange them as often as he pleases for, and hold together for life, two similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices, even with cure and elective, and even if dignities, major or principal respectively, personatus or offices in metropolitan, cathedral or collegiate churches. Litterarum sciencia, vite ac morum. (De mandato.)
5 Kal. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 90d.)
To Henry Chichele, canon of Salisbury, D.C.L. Rehabilitation, etc. motu proprio. A cause arose lately between him and Nicholas Bubbwith, rector of Brinton in the diocese of Lincoln, about the archdeaconry of Dorset, void by the death of Michael Sergeaux (sic) pretended archdeacon, Henry's collation of which, obtained by authority of the ordinary, Nicholas still hinders from taking effect. After the cause, lawfully introduce to the apostolic see, had been committed by the present pope, at the instance of Nicholas, to John [de Dulmen] bishop of Lubeck, then papal chaplain and auditor, it was asserted that Michael had despoiled of the archdeaconry the late Adam, cardinal priest of St. Cecilia's, who held it by papal grant, so that it had become void, not by Michael's, but by the cardinal's death, and so that neither of the two litigants had any right. The pope thereupon commissioned the auditor, if he found this to be the case, to collate and assign it to Henry. The auditor adjudged it to Nicholas, and Henry's appeal was committed to Master Branda de Castellione, who rejected it, and his further appeal has been committed successively to Nicholas elect of Girgenti, and to Nicholas, bishop of Ferentino, all now or then papal chaplains and auditors. Under pretext of the above collation, although, for the reason given, it had no value, Henry has intruded himself. He is rehabilitated, required to resign, and has remission of fruits. The pope further, also motu proprio, imposes perpetual silence on Nicholas, and extinguishes the suit. Sedes apostolica. (De mandato.) (Marginal note: Non corrigatur, eciam si bulla apportetur, de mandato domini nostri, Jac[obus de Teramo]).
4 Kal. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 91d.)
To Nicholas bishop of Ferentino, dwelling in the Roman court. Mandate motu proprio, reciting the above, to surrogate Henry to Nicholas’ right at the time when silence was imposed upon him, and to collate and assign to him the archdeaconry, which has cure, and is a dignity, not major, value not exceeding 200 marks. Litterarum sciencia, rite ac morum. (De mandato.) (Marginal note as above.)
4 Kal. June.

(f. 95d.)
To John Cranmore, layman, of the diocese of Salisbury. Licence to found a chapel or oratory of SS.

(f. 112d.)
To the prior of Stok in the diocese of Norwich. Mandate to absolve the late John Elington, layman, from the guilt of homicide, excommunication and his other sins. The recent petition of his widow Alice, of the diocese of London, contained that going one day to the town of Bonustuc ad Turrim in that diocese, John was told by Robert Rouley, layman, and others that sitting drinking there was Thomas Spermor, a priest, an apostate from the order of Carmelites, who was going about in secular dress and had defamed Payn Typto [ft], knight, of the diocese of Ely, John's intimate friend. At once taking up a stick and angrily going up to Thomas John demanded why he had defamed the knight, and at the reply “I don't think that I said any ill” retorted “You lie.” After these words John hit Thomas over the head with his stick, whereupon Thomas drew a knife and gave John several deadly wounds, but not before his head had been broken, and so they killed each other. Before John was quite dead a priest came up, and John begged mercy of God and pardon from the priest, asking him to bring his vicar to hear his confession. When the vicar arrived John was just alive but speechless. Nevertheless at the point of death there appeared signs of repentance. Humilibus et honestis.

Lett. iv 305], and of the later grant to him to hold a benefice with or without cure, even if wont to be held by secular clerks, and to exchange it as often as seemed good to him for a similar or dissimilar benefice [Reg.

Formerly the present pope made provision of the deanery of Chichester, previously specially reserved, to Stephen, cardinal priest of St. Marcellus, and upon his death at the apostolic see, without having had possession, to Christopher, cardinal priest of St. Cyriac's. After the provision made to cardinal Stephen, and during his lifetime, William Lullyngton intruded himself, and then exchanged with Maydenhith for a canonry and prebend of St. Martin's, and the church of St. Dunstan, London, by authority of the ordinaries, although the ordinary in the case of the deanery knew that it was not really void. Maydenhith, who has hereby remission of fruits, is to resign the deanery, likewise resigned this day to the pope by cardinal Christopher, without having had possession. Sedes apostolica.
