SS. Apostoli, Rome.
(f. 17d.)
To the prior of Norwich. Mandate to absolve from the guilt of perjury, imposing a salutary penance, Thomas Lanke, perpetual vicar of Mildenhale in the diocese of Norwich, who, in spite of the oath of personal and continual residence which he took in accordance with the constitutions of the legates Otto and Ottobon, absented himself for five months in the service of the then bishop of Norwich, and afterwards for six months at the advice of his physicians for the recovery of his health after a grave illness.

(f. 44.)
To the bishop of Alet, and the dean and archdeacon of Emly. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Maurice Ocongalygh, priest, of the diocese of Limerick, contained that on the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of Kylldyma in the said diocese by the death of Walter de Walle, the late John de Geraldinis, archdeacon of Limerick, the collation and provision belonging by ancient custom to the archdeacon of Limerick, made collation and provision by his ordinary authority to the said Maurice, who had received papal dispensation; 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; that subsequently (after Maurice had, in virtue of letters of the present pope [above, p. 167] ordering provision to be made to him of a benefice with or without cure, even if a canonry and prebend in a cathedral church, in the common or several gift of the bishops and the deans and chapters etc. of Killaloe and Limerick, and dispensing him to hold such benefice, obtained the canonry and prebend of Kyllydy in Limerick) on the voidance of the prebend of St. Munchin (Sancti Monchini) in the same church of Limerick by the death of Philip Ohanly, bishop Cornelius made collation and provision by his ordinary authority to Maurice, although not sufficiently dispensed for the purpose on account of the said defect; and that in virtue of the said collations and provisions he obtained possession of the said vicarage and prebend of St. Munchin, receiving, however, no fruits from the latter. Seeing that the collation and provision of the said prebend is therefore invalid, and seeing that, as the said petition added, Maurice doubts the validity of the collation and provision of the said vicarage, the pope orders the above three to collate and assign to him the said prebend of St. Munchin, value with the said canonry not exceeding 12 marks, and the said vicarage, value not exceeding 4 marks, whether they became void as stated, or because the vicarage became void because the said Walter held it for more than a year without being ordained priest, or whether they became void in any other way. He is hereby dispensed to hold the said prebend of St. Munchin and the said vicarage, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, and hold instead two compatible benefices. Vite etc. (Ja. xxxv. Quinto Id. Augusti Anno Decimo. de Cerretanis.)

(f. 70.)
To the abbot of Balmurenach in the diocese of St. Andrews. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Andrew de Crumby, layman, of the diocese of St. Andrews, contained that upon the spontaneous confession of the late John Blich, layman, before the officers of the town of Hadingtony, where he was then living, that he owed a certain sum of money to the said Andrew, certain goods of John to the value of the said sum were by the said officers assigned (deliberata) to Andrew; that Thomas de Bening, layman, of the said diocese, pretending that the said John, who had then died, was indebted to him at the time of his death in a certain other quantity of money, and that Andrew was bound to pay it from the said goods, brought him before John, [now] bishop of Glasgow, then official of St. Andrews, who, without observing legal procedure, gave a definitive sentence against Andrew. At the said petition, adding that the nullity of the sentence can be made manifest from the acts of the cause, and praying the pope to commit the cause of nullity to some person in those parts, the pope orders the above abbot to summon those concerned, and decide what is just without appeal, enforcing his decision by ecclesiastical censure. Exhibita nobis.
