To Nicholas Hill, priest, of the diocese of Dublin, bachelor of canon law. Rehabilitation on account of the following. After the pope's late general reservation of all major dignities in cathedral churches, the deanery of Dublin became void by the death extra curiam of John Preen, papal chaplain and auditor, and the chapter, to whom when there are no papal reservations the election belongs by ancient custom, elected the above Nicholas, who had previously received papal dispensation to hold for life with his perpetual vicarage of Balerotheu (sic) in the diocese of Dublin any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if a major dignity etc., and to resign both, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased, and hold instead for life two other incompatible benefices, and who was at the time of the said election holding the said vicarage and the archdeaconry of Dublin. Having obtained confirmation from archbishop Richard by his ordinary authority Nicholas, under pretext of the said election and confirmation, obtained possession and held the said deanery together with the vicarage and archdeanery for more than three months, taking the fruits, against Execrabilis. He is to resign all three. Sedes apostolica, pia mater.

Mary the Virgin and Bridget, Syon, called St. Saviour's, in the diocese of London, in which are brethren and sisters of the said order under perpetual enclosure, in order that she may be able to seek the health of her soul and receive from the said brethren sacramentals etc., but that the institutes of the said monastery and order forbid the brethren to leave the said enclosure and have dealings with secular persons), that the said brethren may, as often as she wishes, and without licence of the diocesan or any superiors of the said order, leave the precincts up to a distance of two miles of those parts, in order to hear her confession and grant her absolution, enjoining penance, except in cases reserved to the apostolic see, minister to her sacraments and sacramentals, and have dealings with secular persons in the matter of making her will.

4 Kal. Aug.
Genazzano.
(f. 54.)
To Henry, archbishop of Canterbury. Annulment etc. as below. Lately the pope, informed by a number of persons of no little authority and estate that the said archbishop, who is legatus natus of the apostolic see, on account of the customary emoluments arising from the cathedral churches of his province at voidance, not only neglected to defend the rights and honour of the said see but also became daily more prone to oppose apostolic provisions, suspended him during the pleasure of the pope and the said see from his legateship and from all jurisdiction and power of receiving emoluments of other cathedral churches of the realm. Subsequently, by letters and envoys of the bishops and prelates and many others, and especially of the dukes of Gloucester and Norfolk, and of divers earls and barons of the realm, as also of the chancellor and masters of the university of Oxford, the pope was better informed as to the archbishop's singular devotion, obedience and reverence towards the pope and the [Roman] church, and his vigilant defence of the rights and honour of the said see and of the pope, the said bishops etc. asserting that the aforesaid had been evilly reported to the pope, and therefore supplicating him, as did also the archbishop himself, to restore him to his former estate and rights and to revoke the said suspension. But, however much inclined by such testimony to take for granted the archbishop's innocence, inasmuch as it was with great deliberation that the pope proceeded to the said suspension, he decided to wait until parliament met, in order to have greater certainty as to the archbishop's efforts therein for the defence of the rights of the Roman church, and the increase and preservation of the dignity of the said see. The pope now knows, by the report of very many, that for the preservation of the rights and honour of the Roman church the archbishop has laboured with intrepidity, and has not feared to incur the penalties said to be contained in royal statutes. In order, therefore, to encourage him in his efforts for the defence of ecclesiastical liberty and for the recovery of the rights which are oppressed in the realm, and in response to the said petitions, the pope hereby revokes and annuls the said suspension, restores the archbishop to his said legateship and jurisdiction and power, and otherwise rehabilitates him. Tue deuocionis sinceritas. (Ri. Gratis de mandato domini nostri pape. coldus.) (For the pope's letters of suspension, undated, and the archbishop's appeal from the pope to a general council, dated March 22, 1427, and for the letters of the bishops, dated July 10, [1427], of the university of Oxford, dated July 25, 1427, and of the temporal lords, undated, in defence of the archbishop, see the correspondence ‘de lite inter Martinum quintum papam et Henricum Chicheley’ in Wilkins, Concilia, III, pp. 471 sqq.)

Peter and Paul, Llandaff; it having been recently set forth to the pope by the bishop and the chapter and canons that the said church, to which resorts a great multitude out of reverence for SS. Peter and Paul and of many other Saints whose relics are kept therein, by wars, pestilences and other calamities with which those parts have been very greatly afflicted and the said bishop and chapter made destitute, has its buildings so ruinous and is so wanting in books, chalices and other ecclesiastical ornaments, that its total desolation is to be feared.

(f. 94.)
To William Raynforth, layman, of the diocese of Lichfield. Indult as below. Lately, upon its being set forth to the pope on behalf of the said William and the late Eleanor Brokesburne, damsel, that they, he being [not] ignorant, and she being quite unaware, that they were related in the second degree of affinity, had contracted marriage per verba legitime de presenti and had begotten offspring, the pope ordered the bishop of London to absolve William from the sentence of excommunication which he had incurred on account of the aforesaid, enjoining upon him a salutary penance, and to dispense him and Eleanor, after temporary separation, to contract marriage [anew] and remain therein, and to declare past and future offspring legitimate, the pope's will being that if William survived Eleanor, he should remain perpetually unwed. At William's recent petition, containing that bishop Richard made the said absolution and dispensation, that William and Eleanor contracted marriage anew, that Eleanor has died, and that he wishes to marry again, the pope grants him indult that this time, and as often as he shall be without a wife, he may contract marriage with any woman, the pope's said will notwithstanding.

(f. 99d.)
To Nicholas Offlannagan, priest, of the diocese of Clogher. Grant as below. Lately it was set forth to the pope on his behalf that (after receiving papal dispensation, as the son of a priest, a religious professed of the order of St. Augustine, and an unmarried woman, to be promoted etc. as above, f. 93d, in virtue of which he was so promoted and obtained the rectory of Ynismagisanith in the diocese of Clogher) he had obtained without further dispensation, under pretext of a collation and provision made to him by bishop Arthur, and was holding together, first the priorship of the secular and collegiate church of St. Lassrianus de Daminys in the said diocese, a principal dignity with cure, and subsequently, having resigned Ynismagisanith, the rectory or plebania, called the comorbanship, of the same church, which is also a parish church, void because John Magugir held them for more than a year without being ordained priest. The pope therefore rehabilitated him, and required him to resign both [Cal. Lett. VII, p. 497]. Further the pope, learning that the said rectory or plebania was become void by the resignation of Maurice Macmagnassa, made to the said bishop, ordered provision to be made thereof to the said Nicholas, whether it were thus void, or by the above non-promotion, or in any other way. At his petition, containing that he fears lest the said mandate may be held surreptitious, because, as some assert, the said rectory or plebania, called a comorbanship, is a dignity, not principal, in the said church, and that it became and is void by the death of Medocius Othaichlych, the pope hereby grants that the said mandate shall hold good and may be executed, as if it contained special and explicit mention of the said two assertions. Vite etc. (Ri. xx. Gratis pro deo in bulla et Registro. Sextodecimo Kal. Septembris Anno Undecimo. coldus,) [See above, pp. 9, 10, 48, 49.]
