(f. 2.)
Guy Brian, the king's secretary. On behalf of his clerk, Master Robert de Driffeld, who in his twenty-fourth year was instituted to the church of Benington, in the diocese of Lincoln, and was dispensed by the bishop, so as to remain at the university without being ordained priest; he neglected to be ordained, as he was bound, at the end of a year, and received priest's orders only after a lapse of two months. The pope is therefore prayed to dispense Robert so as to hold the said church, and to remit the fruits received.
Granted. Villeneuve by Avignon, 14 Kal. June.
(f. 18.)
The prior and convent of Newburgh, in the diocese of York. Signification that the pope appropriated to the in the church of Ouston, in the diocese of Lincoln, of their patronage, and that on its voidance by the resignation of Ralph de Gisburn they took possession of it. But afterwards William de Navesby, archdeacon of Chester, asserting that provision of the said church had been made to him by the bishop, took and held it for some time, a suit being brought in the papal palace in which sentences were given in favour of the abbot and convent. William, however, stating that Ralph's resignation having been made to the bishop, the pope, treating the church as void, and reserved before the said appropriation, gave it to Wilham, who procured to be inducted, and has molested the said religious, who to avoid these grievances, and in fear of greater losses, made a money bargain with William, binding themselves by an oath, on which William renounced his pretended right to the said church, which is now held by the religious. They therefore pray the pope to declare the appropriation valid, and to supply any defect there may be in it.
The union and incorporation are to take effect, saving the right acquired by any other. A commission is to ascertain the truth of the statements made, and justice is to be done, with power to cite the parties.
