To Magonius Omaynay, a canon of Tuam. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of William Ycenai, priest, of the diocese of Tuam, contained that although he was presented to the ordinary by the then dean of Tuam, in accordance with ancient custom, to one of the four perpetual vicarages of the church of Tuam, called offices or stipends, and instituted by the said ordinary as a perpetual vicar, officer, or stipendiary, and although in virtue thereof he obtained possession and held it for more than six years in peace, Odo Magaygayn, priest, of Tuam, alleging that he had detained it without any title or right, obtained letters of the apostolic see ordering Magonius Omaynayd, a canon of Tuam, to collate and assign the said vicarage, howsoever void, to the said Odo; that the said Odo brought the said William before the said judge, who subdelegated the cause to Nemeas Magnell, also a canon of Tuam, who, wrongfully proceeding, promulgated an unjust definitive sentence, by which he collated and assigned and adjudged the said vicarage to the said Odo, imposing perpetual silence on the said William, who appealed to the said see; that while the appeal was pending, the said Odo and William (after Paul II's renewal of all sentences of excommunication, etc., promulgated by his predecessors against simoniacs, and his reservation to himself and his successors of absolution therefrom) submitted the said cause to certain arbitrators, clerks, and laymen, who pronounced that the said Odo should assign to the said William half the fruits, etc., of the said vicarage, and that the latter should renounce the said appeal, both of which they did. The said petition adding that the said William fears lest on account of the foregoing he has committed simony and incurred the said sentences, and that it is alleged that neither he nor the said Odo has a right in or to the said vicarage, the pope hereby orders the above canon to absolve him from simony and the said sentences, etc., enjoining a salutary penance, etc., dispense him on account of irregularity contracted by celebrating masses and other divine offices, or taking part therein when under such sentences, not in contempt of the Keys, and rehabilitate him, and in the event of his so doing, to summon the said Odo and others concerned, and hear and decide the cause of the said appeal and that of the principal matter, causing his decision to be observed by ecclesiastical censure, without appeal, and, moreover, to collate and assign the said vicarage, with cure and yearly value not exceeding 5 marks sterling, to the said William.

To Hugh Dongles, dean of Brechin, M.A. Collation, etc., as below. Whereas he has this day in person (fn. 3) resigned to the pope the precentorship of Brechin; and whereas John Spaldin[g] (the pope having, at the instance of John Berry(?), clerk, committed the cause which he intended to bring against the said John Spaldin[g] about the deanery of Brechin, after the latter had held it in peace for more than thirty years in virtue of a provision made to him by papal authority, to Master Peter de Ferrara, a papal chaplain and auditor, who has proceeded, short of a conclusion) has by his proctor, David Gardin, clerk, of the diocese of St. Andrews, resigned to the pope the said deanery, for purpose of exchange with the said Hugh; and whereas the said John Spaldin[g] has ceded all right in or to the said deanery; and whereas the pope has admitted the said resignation and cession, the pope hereby surrogates the said Hugh in and to all the right which belonged to the said John Spaldin[g] in or to the said deanery, etc., and makes him collation and provision of the deanery itself, a major dignity, yearly value not exceeding 30l. sterling, void by the resignation or cession of the said John Spaldin[g]; with mandate hereby to the archbishop of St. Andrews, the precentor of Segorbe (Segobricen.), and the official of Brechin, to induct him, etc. The pope further grants indult to the said Hugh that in the event of his failing to obtain the said deanery, he may have reentry to the said precentorship, a non-major dignity, yearly value not exceeding 25 marks sterling, take possession of it, and retain it as before, without the making of any fresh provision to him thereof, as if he had not resigned it.

To Edmund de Burgo, William Obethyll, and Dermit Odonalayn, canons of Tuam. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Magonius Ymaynard, (fn. 8) priest, of the diocese of Tuam, contained that after Paul II's renewal of all sentences of excommunication, etc., against simoniacs, and his reservation of absolution therefrom to himself and his successors, whilst, a cause was pending in first instance before a certain judge appointed by papal authority between the said Magonius and Malachy Odurura, priest, of the said diocese, about the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Veryn (recte Scryn) (fn. 9) in the said diocese, and the verification of divers crimes and debts incurred by the said Malachy, they agreed, at the intervention of friends, that the latter should acquiesce in the sentence delivered or to be delivered against him, by which he was deprived of the said vicarage, and by which collation and provision of it were made to the said Magonius, who should pay him a yearly pension for life from its fruits, etc.; that a definitive sentence was delivered against the said Malachy and in favour of the said Magonius, which became a res judicate, and by which the former was by papal authority deprived of the said vicarage; and that the said Magonius got provision thereof made to him by the said authority, as being void by the said deprivation, and under pretext thereof obtained possession, and has held it for more than two years, taking the fruits, and thereby incurring simony and the said sentences, etc. The said vicarage being therefore void by the said deprivation, and the pope having learned that one of the four vicarages in the church of Tuam, called offices or stipends, is void by the death extraR. c. of Thomas Oconalta, perpetual vicar called an officer or stipendiary, although John Obryn, priest, of the said diocese, has without any title or right detained possession of it for some time, he hereby, at the said petition, orders the above three to absolve the said Magonius from the above simony and sentences, etc., enjoining a salutary penance, dispense him on account of irregularity contracted by celebrating masses and other divine offices, not in contempt of the Keys, or taking part therein, and rehabilitate him, and, in the event of their so doing, to collate and assign to him the said vicarage of Scryn, and, summoning the said John and others concerned, to unite and appropriate the said vicarage, called an office or stipend, which has cure, to that of Scryn, for as long as the said Magonius shall hold the latter; whether they be void as above, or by the resignation of the said Malachy and Thomas, or of Dermit Megnell, or by the deprivation and removal of Nimeas Megnell, etc. Sedes apostolica pia mater.

(f.215v.)
To the sacrist of Clonmacnois (Clonen. recte Cluanen), and Eugenius Omoyllon and Charles Machoclan, canons of Cloyne. Mandate, as below. The pope has been informed by William Obrog, clerk, of Clonfert (Clotferten. [sic]), (fn. 10) that John Okelley, archdeacon of the church of Clonfert, has alienated and dilapidated the immovable goods and the precious movables of the said archdeaconry, has been present at fights (bellis) and conflicts in which some men have been slain and others mutilated, has neglected the cure of souls of the said archdeaconry, and has not resided in the said church. The pope has also learned that the perpetual vicarages of the parish churches of the places of Milecsyna and Muntercinay have been so long void that by the Lateran statutes their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Odo Obrog, who behaves as a canon of the order of St. Augustine, has without any title or right detained possession of them for some years. The pope, therefore, at the recent petition of the said William (who alleges that he is skilled in canon and civil law, and that notwithstanding his illegitimacy, as the son of a priest in the archidiaconal dignity and an unmarried woman, he has been made a clerk), hereby orders the above three, if he will accuse the said John before them, to summon him and the said Odo, and if they find the above charges to be true, or two of them lawfully sufficient for the purpose, to deprive and remove the said John from the said archdeaconry, and in that event to unite and appropriate thereto, for as long as the said William shall hold it, if he obtain it in virtue of these presents, the said vicarages, and thereupon to collate and assign to him the said archdeaconry, a non-major dignity, and the said vicarages, yearly values not exceeding 12 and 5 marks sterling, respectively, removing the said Odo any any other unlawful detainers. The pope further specially dispenses him to be promoted to all, even holy orders and receive and retain the said archdeaconry, notwithstanding the said defect, etc. Sedes apostolica pia mater.

To the archdeacon of Tuam, and Magonius Omaynay[d] and William Obethyll, canons of the same. Mandate, as below. The pope has been informed by Thomas de Burgo, clerk, of the diocese of Tuam, that Thomas Omaynayd, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Sruthyr in the said diocese, has, when under sentence of excommunication, and publicly proclaimed as such, and not in ignorance thereof, celebrated masses and other divine offices in contempt of the Keys, of taken part therein, thereby contracting irregularity, and has committed simony and perjury, of which latter he is defamed in those parts. The pope, therefore, hereby orders the above three, if the said Thomas de Burgo (who was lately dispensed by authority of the ordinary on account of illegitimacy, as the son of an Augustinian canon in priest's orders and a married woman, to be promoted to minor orders and hold a benefice without cure, after which he was made a clerk) will accuse the said Thomas Omaynayd before them, to summon the latter, and if they find the foregoing to be true, or two of them sufficient for the purpose, to deprive and remove him from the said vicarage, and in that event to collate and assign it, yearly value not exceeding 3 marks sterling, to the said Thomas de Burgo. The pope further specially dispenses him to be promoted to all, even holy orders, and receive and retain it and any other benefices with or without cure, compatible with one another and with the said vicarage and with another benefice without cure, even if they be canonries and prebends, etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases, etc., notwithstanding the said defect, etc. Vite etc. [4 pp.]

The pope further specially dispenses the said Richard to be made a clerk, and to be promoted to all holy, even priest's orders, and receive and retain the said canonry and prebend, notwithstanding the said defect, etc. Laudabilia probitatis.

The deanery of the church of Kilmacduagh having become void at the apostolic see, and therefore ipso facto reserved, by the consecration at the said see of Theodericus, bishop of Killaloe (Laonien.), by order of Sixtus IV, by whom the said Theodericus had been promoted to the said church, the pope, wishing to do a special favour to Theobald de Burgo, clerk, of the diocese of Clonfert (who alleges that he is of a great race of nobles, and is in his fifteenth year, and that the said bishop has detained possession of the said deanery for more than two years since the said consecration, without having acquired any title or right, and that if the said deanery were granted to the said Theobald for a year in commendam, and provision were then made to him thereof, the said church of Kilmacduagh would not only be enriched (fn. 11) but would be provided (fn. 12) with a noble person for the protection of its goods), hereby orders the above three to summon the said bishop and others concerned, and grant the said deanery, a major dignity, yearly value not exceeding 20 marks sterling, for a year from the date of these presents to the said Theobald in commendam, and thereafter to collate and assign it to him, inducting him, and removing the bishop and any other unlawful detainer. The pope further specially dispenses him to retain it after the cessation of the said commenda, notwithstanding the said defect of age, etc. Vite etc. [3 pp. In the margin at the end: ’Mar (tii).’]

Mandate, as below. The pope has learned that the rectory of Kyllmure in the diocese of Killaloe (Laon [i]en.) (which, as is alleged, was formerly a parcel of the rectory, of lay patronage, of Conchi and Ocassin in the said diocese, and which was erected by ordinary authority by Matthew, [late] bishop of Killaloe and the chapter, with consent of the patron, for a certain time not yet elapsed, into a prebend of the church of Killaloe), and the rectory of Omulind (fn. 14) alias Cloynlae in the same diocese, which is also of lay patronage, and also the perpetual vicarage of Cloynlae, have been so long void that by the Lateran statutes their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Cornelius Obryen has detained possession for some years of the said rectories, and Dermit Osydy of the said vicarage, and although Donald Macysogi, priest, has surreptitiously impetrated the said vicarage from the present pope. The pope, therefore, at the recent petition of Cornelius Maco[n]mara, clerk, of the same diocese, hereby orders the above three (seeing that from fear of the power of the said Cornelius Obryen, Donald, and Dermit, the said Cornelius Maco(n)mara canont safely meet them in the city and diocese of Killaloe) if, after summoning the said Cornelius Obry[e]n, Dermit, Donald, and others concerned they find the said rectories and vicarage to be in any ways void, and if, after summoning the said bishop and chapter in the matter of the below-mentioned erection, and those interested in the belowmentioned union, they find the foregoing to be true, to erect the said rectory of Chilmure into a prebend of the church of Killaloe for the lifetime of the said Cornelius Maconmara, without prejudice to the said chapter, etc., and to unite and appropriate to such prebend the said rectory of Omilind and the said vicarage, for as long only as the said Cornelius Maconmara shall hold the said prebend, the yearly values of the said rectories not exceeding 20 marks sterling, and that of the said vicarage 4, and, in the event of their so doing, to collate and assign a canonry of the said church of Killaloe and such erected prebend to the said Cornelius Maconmara, inducting him, and removing the said Cornelius Obrien and any other unlawful detainers.

He therefore hereby orders the above three, if the said Odo (who notwithstanding his illegitimacy, as the son of a prior of the hospital of St. John of Jerusalem, of noble birth, and an unmarried woman, has been made a clerk) will accuse the said Cornelius before them, to summon the latter, and if they find the foregoing to be true, or one of them lawfully sufficient for the purpose, to deprive and remove him from the said vicarage, and, in the event of their so doing, to collate and assign it, yearly value not exceeding 8 marks sterling, to the said Odo.
