To the abbot of Chester. Mandate to absolve Roger de Stoles (or Scoles), clerk, of the diocese of Lichfield, from excommunication and other penalties incurred, and to dispense him on account of consequent irregularity, if any, contracted. One night when a student at Cambridge, some fellow students came to him and invited him to go with them for the sake of recreation and solace, which he did, taking his arms with him, but not with intent to kill or hurt anybody. After leaving his lodgings they fell in with certain other clerks and laymen, and beginning with words of contumely they ended with blows, in which last however, he took no part. A layman was killed, and a number of clerks and laymen were wounded. Humilibus et honestis. (Pro Deo.)

6 Kal. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 34d.)
Confirmation of the annulment of certain processes, as below. The recent petition of John Midelton, canon of St. John's, Beverley, contained that on the death of Richard Thorne, papal chaplain, he obtained the canonry and prebend of St. Stephen's altar by presentation of the late king Richard, patron thereof on account of the temporalities of the [void] see, and was instituted by archbishop Robert, which presentation and institution were opposed by Master Nicholas Risscheton, papal chaplain and auditor, who appealed to the apostolic see; that the pope committed the appeal to Bertrand, bishop of Gubbio, then papal chaplain and auditor, with further commission if he should find, as stated by Risscheton, that Thorne had been a papal chaplain, to compel Midelton to resign the same as a reserved benefice; that on information being taken with respect to Thorne's chaplaincy, the auditor ordered Midelton to resign to Risscheton and make satisfaction for fruits received; that afterwards on its coming to the knowledge of Risscheton that he had no right to the canonry and prebend, he set forth to the pope that he had obtained them from him erroneously, the king's title standing in the way (obstante sibi), that they did not belong to him, and that Midelton had canonically obtained them, all the antecedent processes being against justice. He withdrew from the suit, and at his instance the pope ordered all the said processes to be annulled, and the suit or cause treated as non-existent, as appears more fully in the letters of the said auditor. Ad fut. rei mem. Iis per que litigiorum. (De mandato.)

In compensation for first-fruits, common and minute services, and other dues at times of voidance, on account of confirmation or provision, hitherto paid to the pope, the camera, and the college of cardinals, and the households and officers of the pope and of the said college, the abbot and convent are to pay to the collector in England thirty gold florins of the camera every Michaelmas.

To the men and inhabitants of the town of Ayrmyn, in the diocese of York.

Lately, upon their petition setting forth that the church of Snayth, within the parish of which their town lies, is distant about four English miles from them, the pope granted them indult to found and build a chapel of the Annunciation with a stipendiary priest to celebrate mass and other divine offices, and administer the sacraments. Their recent petition contained that it is doubted whether the said indult holds good because no mention was made in it that they have attended, since its foundation, the chapel of Houk, subject to and situate within the bounds of the same church, and distant about a mile from their town.

Ordinance providing penalties as below, in the causes which lately arose between bishop Henry and the prior and chapter of Norwich about the correction and punishment of any excesses of monks of the said church detected in visitation, the exhibition of titles, the letting (arrendacione) and resignation (dimissione) of benefices, portions, and pensions, the sale of corrodies, the suspension and removal of the proctor of the prior and chapter, the lodging (insinuacionibus) and probate (approbacionibus) of wills of priests of the cemetery (Carnarii) within the enclosure of the priory of the said church, and of the wills of any persons deceased within the jurisdiction of the said prior and chapter and of the hospital of St. Paul, and any matters touching the jurisdiction of the prior and chapter, the induction of vicars and of the dean, the convocation of the prior and chapter for treating with the bishop for the time being, the custody of muniments belonging to the bishop and chapter, and other matters (not here expressed). After the causes had been long ventilated in the apostolic palace and in England, the pope called them up to himself, and on the bishop's disregarding this and obtaining a pretended sentence in England, the pope by further letters called them up again, and imposed silence on the bishop and on the prior and chapter until commission should be given to another auditor. Having learned that a doubt has arisen whether the bishop and his adherents or the prior and chapter may not act against his last letters, no penalty being inflicted for such action, the pope hereby ordains that those who do so, if individuals, incur excommunication, or if a chapter or college, suspension, from which they cannot without his knowledge be absolved, except at the hour of death. Ad fut. rei mem. Olim cum inter.
