Subsequently he received papal dispensation to hold for five years one other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible with the said archdeaconry and with the parish church of Newcherch in the diocese of Canterbury, which latter he had obtained after the above dispensation, and, resigning simply or for exchange, to hold three benefices with cure or otherwise incompatible, namely two for life and a third for five years, etc. [ibid., p. 281]; after which, he having obtained and held with the said archdeaconry and church of Newcherch the parish church of Schorham and dependent chapel of Otteford in the said diocese, the pope prolonged the said five years by other two, by letters which stated that the value of the said archdeaconry and church of Newcherch, both of which he still holds, did not exceed 50l. and 25l. respectively [see above, p. 91].

Footnotes

1 A flyleaf has, in the usual modern hands, ‘Vidit Rmus D. Contelorius,’ ‘Lib. clxiii …,’ etc. Another flyleaf has, in contemporary hands, ‘Rubricatus est per Greuensteyn,’ ‘Liber primus de diuersis formis, de exhibitis, de reg[ularibus], de prouisionibus prelatorum, et dignitatibus vacantibus anno xii Martini pape V,’ and ‘Philibertus.’ On the bottom edge of the volume is the hardly legible contemporary description: Liber primus … as on the flyleaf … anno xii Martini, and on the back is the usual modern repetition, in Italian, Lib[ro] 163, corrected from ‘123.’
2 On f. 29 is a faculty ‘Inter desiderabilia cordis,’ dated at Ferentino 5 Kal. Aug. anno 12 [1429] and addressed ‘Carissimo in Christo filio Jacobo regi illustri.’ to found two monasteries of the order of St. Clare ‘in tuo comitatu Castrensi [the comté de Castres, dep. Tarn] seu aliis terris tue dicioni subjectis.’ The letter is printed on p. 477 of the Registrum appended to vol. X of Wadding, Annales Minorum,’ Ex lib. 1 de div. etc. an. 12 fol 29,’ and in his text, p. 145, Wadding identifies ‘Jacobus rex’ as James, comte de la Marche, king of Naples, husband of Joan II, who on account of his dissensions with his wife was living in France. Eubel, Bullarium Franciscanum, vol. VII, p. 726 No. 1867, reprints the faculty almost in full, giving as his sources ‘Reg. Vat. ser. Lat. t. 293 [i.e. the present register] f. 28 (sic). Wadd. l.c. [i.e. Wadding's Annales] reg. pont. Mart. V, n. 235.’ but, notwithstanding Wadding's identification, addresses the letter ‘Jacobo regi Scotiæ.’ adding in a footnote ‘L.c [i.e. as before, in Wadding's Annales] expressum quidem non est, cuius regni ille Iacobus sit rex;sed de rege Scotiæ tantum eo tempore agi potest.’ In Reg. Vat. CCCLIII, ff. 143d—144, are letters dated at St. Peter's, Rome, 18 Kal. May anno 4 [1421] requesting safe-conduct on behalf of the same’ carissimus in Christo filius noster Jacobus Rex illustris’ who is preparing (se disponat) to visit the pope and the apostolic see.
