Regesta, Vol. XIII.

9 Honorius III.

3 Non. Aug.
Lateran.
(f. 1.)
Request to the king of France to abstain from invading the territory of the king of England, with whom the pope has in vain urged him to prolong the truce in consideration of the Holy Land, in the cause of which the power of France has been the chief, and for which the pope has taken counsel with the emperor Ferdinand and the king of Sicily, so that by a general peace between Christian princes it should be possible for them all to come to its assistance. The pope has sent the Cistercian abbot of Hantecombe (de Columba) to represent him personally in this matter. [Shirley, i. 541.]
Ibid. Concurrent mandate to the said abbot.
Ibid. Mandate to the archbishop of Sens and the bishop of Senlis to introduce the said abbot of Hautecombe (de Alta Comba) to the king of France, and to assist his mission.
1224.
[3 Non. Aug.]
Lateran.
(f. 1d.)
Letter to king Henry acknowledging his letters by the abbots of Boxeli and Robertsbridge. He has written to the king of France about the business of Poitou, sending also letters to the same about the business of the count of La Marche. As he is unwilling that the truce should be postponed by occasion of choosing arbiters between the two kings to settle damages to be paid for injuries inflicted on either side during the truce, the pope suggests that the king should give his entire endeavours to a renewal of the truce.
n.d.
Lateran.
(f. 4d.)
Mandate to the cardinal archbishop of Canterbury to cause the king to cease from attacking Falches de Breaute, against whom the archbishop and certain bishops have issued sentence of excommunication. The pope asks for explanations on the subject. Why, if these discords have arisen since the archbishop's letters informing him that peace was entirely restored in England, did not the archbishop at once let him know of them? Does the archbishop say that justice required that Falches should be attacked? At any rate, expediency required the contrary. Where is his abundant wisdom if it is by his advice that the king is making war on his subjects? He is also ordered to relax the sentence issued against Falches and his abettors. [Shirley, i. 543.]
n.d.
Lateran.
(f. 4d.)
Monition to king Henry to raise the siege of the castle of Bedford, which his father gave to Falches de Breaute, and not to make war on his own subjects while foreign enemies are making war on his realm. The pope will, if required, settle any question between that nobleman and the king. [Shirley, i. 544.]
n.d.
(f. 5.)
Mandate to S. cardinal archbishop of Canterbury, Hubert de Burgo, justiciar, and others, the king's counsellors, to persuade the king to withdraw from the siege of the above castle, and to get the better of his vassals by benefits rather than by arms.
n.d.
(f. 5.)
Letters to the pope, from [Lewis] king of France, sent by Stephen, his clerk, informing him that when the truce, settled between the late king Philip and himself of the one part, and king Henry of the other, was threatened, Lewis, who had no counsel from his barons as to making the truce with Henry, went in person to take possession of his fiefs of Poitou, of which and other fiefs in France king John had been deprived by sentence of his peers the French barons, before Henry was born, since which time all those fiefs came into the hands of Philip and himself as heir to the realm of France; but Henry, offering opposition to this on the part of the realm of England as a fief of the Roman church, sends an army to claim those fiefs of Lewis, of which John had been deprived by sentence of his peers. Lewis therefore prays the pope to revoke what has been done on the part of England as a papal fief; but if the king of England has acted on the pope's authority, the pope must not be surprised if Lewis determines to oppose him.
1224.
18 Kal. Jan.
Lateran.
(f. 20d.)
Mandate to the priors of Kirkeham, Newburgh, and St. Andrew's, York, to cite both parties in the cause between the prior and brethren of St. Peter's hospital, York, and the abbots of Fountains, Meaux, Beiland, Girvalle and Kirkestall, about sheaves and other dues claimed by the hospital, which was tried by order of pope Innocent before the dean of Lincoln and his fellow judges, who wished to consult the pope on some points. Owing to the disturbed state of the realm the cause was left in abeyance, but now, on petition of the prior and brethren, it is renewed. The parties are to appear before the pope either in person or by proctors, to receive terms of agreement or a sentence.
1225.
3 Non. Feb.
Lateran.
(f. 31.)
Mandate to the archbishops, bishops, abbots, provosts, and prelates of churches, and rectors in England, to give a subsidy to the king according to the income of their churches, the sums collected being assigned to trustworthy and discreet men, who shall hold them until the king and realm determine how they shall be spent: no precedent is hereby created.
Ibid.
(f. 31d.)
Mandate to S. cardinal archbishop of Canterbury, to act in his province as shall seem expedient in regard to the ancient custom of not permitting oaths to be taken between Septuagesima and the octave of Easter, and during Advent; the king having represented that the custom greatly hinders the course of justice. [Shirley, i. 545.]
The like to the archbishop of York.
n.d.
(f. 31d.)
Request to Lewis, king of the French, to restore to the king of England those lands which he has knowingly invaded, making a truce in regard to them, and giving help to the Holy Land.

(f. 35.)
Mandate to the dean, the archdeacon, and the sub-dean of Lincoln, to warn and induce the chaplains and other clerks of Beverley to abandon the evil custom of taking their meals away from the common table, so that the poor are deprived [of the remains].

Lateran.
(f. 39d.)
To the archbishops, bishops, and other prelates of England. Condemnation of a book entitled Perifisis, already condemned in the provincial council of Sens, which is used in some monasteries and other places, ordering them to send all copies of it to the pope to be solemnly burned, or to burn them in public: of the five books of which it consists, the first begins “Sepe mihi cogitanti diligentius que quantum vires suppetunt inquirenti”; and ends “fige limitem libri sat enim est in eo complexum”: the fifth begins “Nunc ergo,” and ends “et tenebras recte cognoscentium convertit in lucem.”
Kal. Mar.
Lateran.
(f. 40d.)
Mandate to the archdeacon of Berkshire (Beskir) to put an end to a suit about tithes between J. rector of Witham, and the abbot and convent of Abingdon, notwithstanding an indult which the latter obtained from the pope by making no mention of the controversy.

2 Kal. Mar.
Lateran.
(f. 49d.)
Commission to the cardinal archbishop of Canterbury to proceed to a decision of a suit relating to the alleged marriage of Alan, knight, and Juliana, heard before the abbot of Bruern and his fellow judges. It was proved by witnesses that marriage had been contracted, but Alan pleaded an alibi, which the woman contested. Alan appealed to the pope, and thought he renounced the appeal and contined to litigate before the delegates, he obtained papal letters to the dean of Andovre and others, before whom the woman propounded that the letters had been obtained to the misrepresentation, and that the cause should be remitted to the former judges. This was not admitted; whereupon she appealed to the pope. But the first Judges proceeding in the cause, though for fear of the knight and their own want of skill, they pronounced no sentence, remitted it to the pope, ordering the woman to present herself at the beginning of Last Lent, which she has done, praying for judgment, but the pope, doubting whether the acts and attestations she brought with her were true, sends this mandate, ordering the archbishop, if the said knight will not be induced to treat the woman as a wife, to have the original acts produced and decide the matter.
1225.
4 Id. April.
Lateran.

Rieti.
(f. 74.)
Mandate to the bishop of Caithrless, the precentor of Moray, and the archdeacon of Aberdeen, on satisfactory proof, to restore to Maurice Cecus, all of which he has been despoiled, or, in the absence of proof of the spoliation, to report to the pope on the process: the churches named are those of St. Mary de Nugh and the chapel of Standuwich, St. Morach de Alter, and Tarvadal, Struf; also lands of Ardcondoch and Seuanede.
Id. Aug.
Rieti.
(f. 78d.)
Mandate to Stephen [Langton], cardinal archbishop of Canterbury, and Master Otto, papal sub-deacon and chaplain, on the petition of the abbot and convent of dorchester, for the translation of the body of Birinus, bishop, in their church, to a more fitting place. The pope has already ordered the archbishop, archdeacon, and official of Canterbury to authorise the abbot and convent to do this, and has received letters from them informing him that they have been to the place and opened the tomb, which appeared to be that of the saint; but, as Bede says in his book, De gestis Anglorum, that the body had been translated to Winchester, the matter was remitted to the pope. He refers it to the archbishop, ordering him to go to Winchester and examine the matter. Inasmuch as Bede related many things on hearsay, and as the bodies of two holy bishops, Birinus and Bertinus, were buried at Dorchester, it may be that what Bede wrote of Bertinus, has, by the carelessness of copyists, been applied to Birinus. The archbishop is therefore to pronounce that the body of St. Birinus is at Dorchester, and is to give papal licence to the abbot and convent to translate it.
3 Id. Dec.
Rieti.
(f. 99.)
Canonization of St. Laurence [O'Toole]. Relaxation of twenty days of enjoined penance to those penitents who visit the church of St. Mary, Eu (de Augo), in the diocese of Rouen, in which the body of St. Laurence, archbishop of Dublin, is buried, on the appointed feast of that saint or during the octave. The examination into the life and miracles of St. Laurence was ordered to be made by the archbishop, the dean, and the treasurer of Rouen, but, as St. Laurence arrived there only a week before his death, they wrote to the archbishop of Dublin, who, being occupied in the king's business out of Ireland, committed the matter to the bishop of Derry and the prior of Holy Trinity Dublin, who received depositions of witnesses, and sent them to the pope, from which it appears that St. Laurence was son of the king and queen of Ireland, well instructed in theology from his earliest years, and always far removed from levity and wordly delights; being made archbishop he was constant in prayer, bodily mortifications, and almsgiving: as to his miracles, the deaf, dumb, and sick are healed; he restored seven dead persons to life. His feast is fixed on the 18th of December.
6 Id. Dec.
Rieti.
(f. 100d.)
Mandate to the bishop of Bath, Salisbury, Rochester, and Ely, to receive lawful proofs from either party of alienations of episcopal goods said to have been made by the bishop of Durham without consent of the prior and convent, between whom and the bishop a cause is pending in regard to the custody of void churches of the advowson of the prior and monks, alienations, and other matters. The above bishops are to send the proofs, with a full report, to the pope.
Ibid.
(f. 101.)
Mandate to the same to relax any sentence of excommunication issued against either party in the above suit, on restitution of that by taking which, during the suit, the sentence was incurred; and to take care that nothing of the sort is done in the future by either party.
[15 Kal. Jan.]
Rieti.
(f. 101.)
Mandate to the prior of Kenilworth and the dean and precentor of Lichfield to restore to the abbot and convent of Burthon the manor which they, being then burdened with debt, granted in fee to Philip Marci, a layman of the diocese of Coventry, and his wife, for 100 marks, rashly binding themselves, under pain of excommunication, if they annulled the grant, so that the monastery, seeing that the manor is worth 20 marks a year in rents, is grievously injured. A penance is to be enjoined to the abbot and convent for their rashness, and Philip is to be satisfied for all expenses incurred.
13 Kal. Jan.
Riete.
(f. 102d.)
Request to the king of Scotland, on petition of Aliz, a widow, banished from that realm, that she may return to her own again. The king has already, at the pope's request, restored her goods, but because he had sworn, after the manner of an angry man, that she should never re-enter his kingdom, she is still unable to profit by his lenity.

(f. 109d.)
Mandate to the prior and convent of St. Andrews to let Master William de Sancto Germano, papal chaplain, have the church of Rossinclerach, for institutuion to which he has been presented to by the bishop of St. Andrews by the prior and convent, between whom and Master William de Grenelawe, who detained that church, a question has arisen, the prior and convent asserting that William had another church contrary to the statutes of the general council. At length a composition was made between Eustace and Henry, canons and proctors of the convent, and the said William, who made oath that if they could prove that he accepted, after the council, any benefice with cure of souls, or if he could obtain the church of Lillisclive, which he was striving to get he would surrender Rossinclerach. But as they are not prosecuting the suit, he continues to hold that church, and the said chaplain has received nothing under this provision, the pope makes order as above, adding that, if the chaplain cannot have the said church, another of equal value is to be given him. If the prior and convent do neither of these things, the bishop, dean, and treasurer of Glasgow have orders to compel them.
Ibid.
(f. 110.)
Concurrent letter to the said bishop, dean, and treasurer.

(f. 127.)
Mandate to the archbishop of Cashel and the bishops of Limerick and Cloyne, on the part of the chapter of Killaloe, who state that on the election of the late David, archdeacon of Killaloe, to that see, Robert Travers, priest, procured himself by lay influence to be thrust into the same and consecrated, on which a papal injunction was sent to the archbishop of Tuam and his colleagues to remove Robert, and if on examination they found the above election to be canonical to confirm it, and suspending Robert's abettors to send them to Rome Robert falsely asserting that he had appealed to the pope the cause was committed to J. papal chaplain, penitentiary, and legate, who confirmed the former sentence and imposed silence on Robert, causing another priest to be consecrated to the said church. Robert then obtained papal letters to the bishop of Bath and his colleagues, which being subsequently revoked by the pope, Robert was cited to Rome, and on his contumacy was excommunicated by those deputed to carry out the citation, the pope having waited a year and a half for him to present himself. The said archbishop and bishops are ordered to remove Robert from the administration of the diocese, and commit it to a faithful, powerful, and fit person; and on hearing the cause, if they cannot bring it to an end, to remit it to Rome, revoking all alienations made by Robert to the injury of the said church, paying the expenses of T. abbot of SS. Peter and Paul de Forgio, who has laboured at Rome in the business of the said church.

Mandate to the cardinal archbishop of Canterbury, the bishop of Salisbury, and the abbot of Westminster, on petition of the abbot of Theokesbiri, to revoke what has been attempted after appeal made to the pope in regard to certain letters supposed to have been obtained from the pope, by which the use of pontificals was granted to the monastery of Theokesbiri, but of which the abbot did not avail himself. It appears that R. and W., two excommunicate monks, had falsified the seal of the monastery, and one had falsely accused the abbot of collusion with those commissioned by the pope to enquire into the matter. The cardinal, bishop, and abbot are ordered not to permit the abbot to be molested in regard to the above matter; but if he has availed himself of the said letters, the pope is to be informed of it.

Certain houses below the infirmary and other offices have been by them improvidently assigned to the bishop; and the sub-delegates divided certain proceeds, formerly belonging to the prior and convent, between them and the bishop, both parties being absent; the bishop also usurps the collation of churches in the gift of the prior and convent.

Mandate to the archbishop of York, on petition of P. de Winertorp, stating that his father, when in minor orders, held the church of Winertorp, and lawfully married and begot him. Afterwards, on his father's resignation, he was presented by the patron, and was instituted and ordained by the arch bishop's predecessor, and he has held it for ten years, but now, on account of certain papal letters issued at the archbishop's request against the ministration of sons in their fathers’ churches, he is disturbed in his possession. The archbishop is not to deprive him of the said church until he gives him another benefice.

The archdeacon has been placed in the commission, instead of the prior of Bernewell, and J. provisionally discharged. The abbot, prior, and archdeacon are now ordered to relax sentences issued against others, and to examine all letters and processes, hearing what has to be heard, and remit the causes to the pope.

Answer to the archbishop and chapter of York, informing them that the pope's constitution, whereby clerks studying in the faculty of theology are to receive their ecclesiastical rents in full, does not mean that the daily commons which resident clerks receive, who are present in choir, ought to be given also to those who are absent for the purpose of study.

Monition and mandate to the prior and convent of But[ley], in the diocese of Norwich, to make provision of a benefice in their gift to Trasmund, clerk, of Ferentino, as they have promised by letters patent, and yet when they had an opportunity of doing so, in the church of Terlinges, they did not. If they do not comply, the cardinal archbishop of Canterbury, the abbot of St. Osith's in the diocese of London, and the archdeacon of Canterbury are to compel them.
Concurrent letter to the archbishop, the abbot, and the archdeacon.
18 Kal. Jan.

(f. 165d.)
Mandate to the archbishop of York to compel the dean and chapter to fulfil the order given to them by the pope in regard to Master Laurence de Sancto Nicolao, papal sub-deacon and chaplain, canon of York, whose prebend was not of any certain value or in any certain place, he having only his share of the common fund. Afterwards, because very few canons resided, it was ordered by the archbishop and the dean that the common fund should be divided equally among those who resided and attended choir offices, so that whatever prebend Master Laurence had, he would get only 6 marks a year; but if he resided, he would get a share of the common fund as well. Now, as the prebend he has is of such small comparative value, the church of Trokelinton has been added to it by the archbishop; upon which the dean and chapter wish to take away the 6 marks. The pope now orders them to pay this amount, whether Laurence be absent or present, and, if he resides, to subtract nothing of his share of the common fund.

Mandate to the abbot of Dereham and the priors of Westacre and Dereham, in the diocese of Norwich, to enquire into the decisions of successive judges in the cause between the abbot and convent of Kirkestede and W. rector of Beniword, in the diocese of Lincoln, touching certain tithes, the cause having been heard before the prior of Osenee and his fellow judges then, on appeal, by the abbot of Wellebech and his colleagues, on the rector's appeal, by the prior of St. Mary Magdalen's and fellow judges, and on the abbot's second appeal by the prior of Walton and others. These last remitted the parties to the abbot of Wellebech and his fellow judges, who, on another appeal made by the rector, obtained that it should be delegated to the bishop of Lincoln and his fellow judges, but the abbot refused to plead before them, on the ground that the rector was excommunicate, so that the business has been hanging on for six years and more. The said abbot and priors are ordered to approve and cancel what is necessary, causing what is approved to be observed; if not, they are to refer the whole matter to the pope under seal, fixing a time for the parties to appear for sentence, notwithstanding that the prior of Westacre has a papal indult freeing him from the obligation of hearing causes against his will.
