The clerks and scholars of the house or hall called ‘Balioly’ at Oxford. By the bounty of the founder there are many scholars who receive 8d. a week, and when they become masters of arts they are turned out of the house, so that they, through poverty, are unable to proceed in other liberal sciences, but leaving the university seek a living by labour (mecanice); William de Felton, knight, compassionating them, increased the number of the said scholars and arranged that they should have the books of the divers faculties in common, and that each of them should have sufficient clothes and receive 12d. a week, and remain in the said hall, proceeding to any degree of master or doctor until promoted to some fitting ecclesiastical benefice. The said knight procured the patronage of the parish church of Aboldesleye, in the diocese of Lincoln, for the hall and its clerical scholars, hoping that the pope would grant it to the uses of the scholars and the hall, who are thus its patrons. He and they therefore pray the pope to grant the church, value not exceeding 40 marks, as desired, reserving a portion for a perpetual vicar; possession to be taken on the death of the present rector; the diocesan's permission not being required.

Although diligent search was made for the above-named reservation, it could not be found in the registers of B. Stephani, and Raymund de la Valle, prothonotary, but it was at last discovered in that of Peter de Menucico, by which it appears that pope John made provision of the canonry and reserved prebend to Sir Richard de Bury, who before he had possession of it was consecrated bishop of Durham, so that the prebend became again void and reserved. To take away all doubt, the said Richard [de Thormenton] prays the pope to make provision to him of the canonry and prebend in whatever way they may be void; notwithstanding that Stephen de Mucheledevere, after the death of Peter de Berkeley, took and holds the prebend.

Granted. Avignon, 8 Id. May.
