Bologna.
(f. 134.)
Licence etc. as below. Boniface IX—at the petition of Edward, duke of York [then of Albemarle, added on f. 136] and his father Edmund, then duke of York, containing that they proposed to found and endow, with assent of the apostolic see, in their castle of Fodringeye in the diocese of Lincoln, a college of the Annunciation of St. Mary the Virgin and St. Edward, King and Confessor, for a master or dean, twelve chaplains to form the chapter and live as a college, say the canonical hours, day and night, and mass and other divine offices, and four clerks to minister to master or dean and chaplains and assist at the said hours etc., which master or dean, chaplains and clerks should be bound to personal residence; and praying pope Boniface to grant them licence to so found and endow the college up to the said number or more, and to exempt the college from the bishop of Lincoln and all inferior judges ordinary and to subject it immediately to the metropolitan only—ordered the abbot of Ramsey, without mention of his name, upon sufficient endowment being made, to grant licence for such college to the said number of seventeen. Pope Boniface further granted to the master or dean, in the event of the licence being granted, of the college being founded and the said number of seventeen being instituted, the same jurisdiction over chaplains and clerks as that exercised by the masters or deans of other colleges in the said diocese or in the province of Canterbury, and also the cure of souls thereof. He likewise exempted and subjected them as above, exempted them from personal residence in any other of their benefices, and granted that they might, when residing in the college, take the fruits of such other benefices. Upon its being set forth by Edward to the present pope that Thomas, abbot of Ramsey, had executed the said mandate, the pope confirmed both mandate and proceedings. The [recent] petition of Edward contained that he desires the said number of chaplains etc., limited as above, to be increased, and that he desires—especially because duke Edmund, the principal founder, was prevented by death from completing his pious intent—king Henry to be principal founder; that he desires the above dedication to be changed to the Annunciation of St. Mary the Virgin and All Saints; and that he desires the above exemption to be withdrawn, and the college to be subjected, not to the metropolitan but to the bishop. The pope grants licence for the desired increase, constitutes king Henry principal founder, along with Edward and his heirs and successors, and changes the dedication and subjection as desired, saving to the master or dean the same jurisdiction as is exercised by those of other colleges, even as regards cure of souls as above. Ad fut. rei mem. Exigit preclare. (De mandato.) [The date is altered in the margin from 6 Kal. June to 6 Kal. April.]

8 Kal. July.
Bologna.
(f. 136.)
An Ad fut. rei mem., differing from the preceding in the preamble, but otherwise almost verbatim the same as far as ‘take the fruits of such other benefices,’ continuing thence as follows:—Afterwards, as the recent petition of duke Edward— Edmund his father having died—to the present pope contained, Thomas, abbot of Ramsey, executed the said mandate for a college of seventeen persons. At the said petition, the pope confirms the said mandate of pope Boniface and the abbot's proceedings, all papal privileges and indults to the college, and royal and other liberties, immunities and exemptions from secular exactions. He further ordains that the master or dean and the precentor (cantor), if any, may and shall wear surplices and almuces like canons, the chaplains like vicars, and the clerks and ministers like choristers (querestariorum) and other ministers, of cathedral churches. Ad fut. rei mem. Ex debito solicitudinis. (De mandato.)

To John Burdet, perpetual vicar of St. Madernus in Cornwall, in the diocese of Exeter. Grant as below. It was lately set forth on his behalf to the pope that he formerly received papal dispensation, as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold any benefice with or without cure, even if a canonry and prebend or a dignity etc., and to resign it, for exchange or otherwise, as often as he pleased, after which he obtained the parish church of Everesholt in the diocese of Lincoln, was subsequently ordained priest, freely resigned Everesholt and obtained his above vicarage of St. Medernus (sic); that the present pope dispensed him to hold any mutually compatible benefices of any number and kind, with or without cure, even if canonries and prebends or dignities etc., and to resign [them and] the said vicarage for exchange or otherwise, as often as he pleased, with grant that in future papal graces no mention of his illegitimacy needed to be made; and that the pope made provision to him of canonries of London and Ripon with expectation of prebends. The pope grants that his said dispensation and provision shall hold good from the date thereof as though he had not subsequently ordained (i) that illegitimate persons should not be admitted to cathedral canonries and prebends and dignities etc., notwithstanding any dispensations on account of illegitimacy, nor to collegiate dignities [Ottenthal, Regulæ Cancellariæ Apost., John XXIII, nn. 21 and 22.]; (ii) that—although the pope or his predecessors have occasionally granted that in the case of papal dispensations on account of illegitimacy no mention needed to be made of such illegitimacy in future graces concerning benefices—such mention should thenceforward be obligatory, the graces otherwise being null, except in the case of certain specified persons [Ibid., n. 23]. Vite etc.

(f. 174d.)
To the same. Dispensation to him—who holds the above vicarage of St. Madernus, value not exceeding 90 marks, and to whom the pope has recently made provision of canonries of London and Ripon with expectation of prebends—to hold for seven years, with his said vicarage, or with other incompatible benefice which he may obtain if he resign it, any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible therewith, even if a parish church or a perpetual vicarage or an elective dignity, major or principal etc., and to resign both, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases.

On the voidance of the rectory they may take possession, a fit portion for a perpetual vicar, a secular priest, being reserved. Ad perp. rei mem. Sacre religionis.
Ibid Grant—at the recent petition of Thomas, abbot, and the convent of St. Mary's, York, containing that Boniface IX motu proprio appropriated to the then abbot and convent the church of Hornse in the diocese of York, of their patronage; that although the then abbot and convent, for obtaining the said appropriation, incurred heavy burdens and expense, it was ineffectual on account of the subsequent general annulment by pope Boniface on 11 Kal. Jan. anno 14 [1402, see Cal. Lett. V, p. 599] of appropriations; and that abbot Thomas was sent to the late Council of Pisa as ambassador or nuncio of Henry, archbishop, and the clergy of the city and diocese of York, and has remained after the close of the Council—that the said appropriation shall hold good from the date of these presents notwithstanding the said annulment. On the voidance of the church they may take possession, a fit portion being reserved for a perpetual vicar, a secular priest. Ad perp. rei mem. Exigit dilectorum.
Ibid.
(f. 180.)

(f. 180.)
To Nicholas, bishop of Ardfert. Grant to him—to whom Angelus Corario, then called Gregory XII, made provision of the said see, void by the death of William and previously reserved, and whom the said Angelus caused to be consecrated without the apostolic see; who, by virtue of the said provision, made shortly after the cardinals abandoned Lucca and went to Pisa, obtained peaceable possession of the see, long before the sentence. of the Council of Pisa against the said Angelus and Peter de Luna, called Benedict XIII; and who has firmly adhered to the said Council—that the said provision shall hold good even though, as he fears, the see became and is void otherwise than as above, and the provision therefore specially or generally reserved.
