DCLV, ff. 18v.–22v., dated 1482, 8 Id.

(who was lately dispensed by papal authority on account of illegitimacy, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders, and receive and retain any compatible benefices with and without cure, even if canonries and prebends, dignities, etc., and to resign them, etc.) the chancellorship of Lismore, a nonmajor dignity with cure, yearly value not exceeding 20 marks sterling, so long void that by the Lateran statutes its collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although John Wyth, clerk, who is to be summoned and removed, has detained possession for some years without any canonical title, the said William having no hope of obtaining justice in the city and diocese of Lismore. Vite ac morum. [4 pp.]

St. Peter's, Rome.

To John Ohuallachayn, Bernard Ohedyrceoyl, and Donald Onchaytin, canons of Ross. Mandate to collate and assign to Donatus Ossega, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Gleanmuke, alias de Templo novo, in the diocese of Ardfert (who is of noble birth, and who from fear of the below-named Dermit cannot safely meet him in the city and diocese of Ardfert), the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Kylmancan in the said diocese, yearly value not exceeding 12 marks sterling, which was erected by papal authority into a prebend of Ardfert for the lifetime of Dermit Ysullevayn, clerk, of the said diocese, and which is void, in accordance with provincial constitutions which provide that any canon of Ardfert, holding a canonry and a prebend erected out of the rectory or the vicarage of a parish church, is bound to have himself promoted to the priesthood within a certain time, under pain of eo ipso deprivation, because the said Dermit, without having obtained any canonical dispensation, has not had himself so promoted, although the said Dermit, who is to be summoned and removed, has without any new canonical title detained the said vicarage for between one and three years. The pope further dispenses the said Donatus to receive the said vicarage of Kilmancan, and to retain it for life with that of Gleanmuke, etc., and to resign, etc., and receive instead and retain for life two incompatible benefices, not being major or principal dignities, etc. Nobilitas generis, vite etc. [5¼ pp.]

Footnotes

1 On the back of the volume: ‘Inn. viii. Bullar. Ann. i, ii. Li. xv.' The usual half of the original sheepskin binding, preserved at the beginning of the volume, has the contemporary surname ‘Campania,’ but not the usual contemporary description of the Register, and no ‘R (ecipe).’ It has, however, the usual later ‘Innoc. 8. Lib. xv.’ There are 1–6–vii–cccxviiij ff. of text, and no ‘rubricelle.’
2 I.e. addressed to two executors only, but the text has, probably by force of habit (unless the name of a third executor has dropped out of the address), per apostolica etc. (i.e. per apostolica scripta mandamus) quatenus vos vel duo aut unus vestrumconferre et assignare curetis
3 Corrected from ‘Ochonthy’ by cancellation of the first h.
4 Recte Achamichayrt.
5 Laonen., recte Laonien.
6 sextodecimo’ substituted in the margin for ‘undecimo,’ cancelled.
7 There is no explicit dispensation for Gilbert to hold the vicarage, although he is only a clerk.
8 Substituted in the margin for ‘Oacenasi,’ cancelled.
9 No diocese mentioned.
