Indult to archbishops, bishops, abbots, and prelates in France, that they shall be free to grant to fit persons benefices in their gift now held by Italians on their voidance, and that they shall not be held to make provision of them unless special mention be made of this indult in the papal letters.
The like to the archbishops and others in England.
15 Kal. June.
Lateran.
(f. 16d.)
Confirmation to the abbot and convent of Theokesbiri of the tithes of their lordship and that of T. de Sanford, in the town of Estum, and two parts of the tithes of the manor of the church of that town which belongs to the monastery, and two parts of the tithes of the lordship of Engliston, which they say they have received for forty years.
9 Kal. June.
Lateran.
(f. 18d.)
Mandate to the archbishop of Canterbury to publicly excommunicate, with lighted candles, certain persons, if they be found to be laymen, who have taken and held the possessions of the abbot and brethren of Theokesbiri, left to them by will, or who have presumed to issue sentence of excommunication or interdict against the said abbot and brethren, or who have exacted from them tithes of labour of their possessions, held before the general council, cultivated by their own hands or at their cost, or of their fodder: if those who have done this be clerks, canons regular, or monks, he is to suspend them.
13 Kal. July.
Lateran.
(f. 20d.)
Indult to the abbot and convent of Theokesbiri to retain to their own uses, when void, the church of Fereford, granted to them by pope Lucius, but which their predecessors have negligently granted to secular clerks, and which is now held by Master Gottfrid, papal notary.
14 Kal. July.
Lateran.
(f. 20d.)
Confirmation to the same of the churches granted to them by their patrons, with the consent of the diocesan, and into which, on their voidance, they entered by indult of pope Honorius, namely, Meresfeld and the parish church of St. Mary, Kerdif, with its appurtenances within and without the burgh.
4 Kal. July.
Lateran.
(f. 21d.)
Mandate to the deans of the cathedral and of Christianity, and the archdeacon of Lincoln to enforce the papal order made in the cause between the prior and convent of Buttele and the prioress and nuns of Campese in the diocese of Norwich, heard before the abbot of Hulme and his fellow judges, about the small tithes of the church of Diam, and the tithes of a mill of the same place, on which an agreement was come to between the parties under penalty of 100 marks, that the nuns should pay the tithes of the mill to the prior and convent and also in the case of gardens, orchards, and the like, if they have no indult. No prejudice shall arise to the right of the prior and convent in respect of tithes of which they were in possession at the time the indults were obtained, from the fact that no mention was made of it.

These not having appeared within twelve days after the time fixed, the said judges put the said P. crusader in possession of the goods of the said nobles and ordered the prior and official of Canterbury to excommunicate them, but they have neglected to do so.

5 Gregory IX.

3 Non. April.
Lateran.
(f. 67.)
Mandate to the archbishop of York, at his request and that of the bishop of Chichester, to dispense with Oddo, his clerk, already dispensed by pope Honorius so that he could hold an additional benefice, with a proviso against illegitimacy, both in regard to illegitimacy and the benefice he has obtained, provided he does not follow in his father's footsteps.
3 Non. April.
Lateran.
(f. 68.)
Indult to the abbot and convent of Abedon, on petition of J. cardinal of St. Praxed, to appropriate to the uses of hospitality the church of Culdedon in their gift, which the said cardinal has on its voidance, a vicar's portion being reserved.
[Given by Theiner as above; but see the indults at f. 158d and Vol. xvi., f. 105.]
4 Id. April.
Lateran.
(f. 76.)
Mandate to the bishop of Ely, the archdeacon of Suthbiri, and the chancellor of Cambridge, on petition of the Cluniac prior and convent of La Charité, that on a voidance of the priory of Conventry, which belongs to their church, a prior was appointed by their prior, who afterwards, without consulting either his convent, or that of La Charité, professed obedience to the bishop of Lincoln. On this the prior of La Charité removed him from the priory, and from time to time has appointed others, but he obtained papal letters to the bishop of Bath and others, who put the said bishop in possession as guardian. The bishop compelled the convent of Daventry to elect a prior threatening to expel them if they did not, and instituted him to Coventry, whereupon he was excommunicated by the prior of La Charité. On his death, when the prior instituted another, the bishop not only would not let him enter the priory, but procured him grievous injuries, although the brethren of the order of Cluny have an indult which exempts them from obedience to any bishop. And since the prior and convent of La Charité were unable to obtain possession of their convent within a year. they petitioned, but the bishop's proctor opposed their petition, on the ground that the priory of Coventry was subject to the bishop, and, on the death of prior W., was vacant for a long time, so that its provision, according to the Lateran council, lapsed to the bishop, who wished to appoint a fit person but was hindered by the prior and convent of La Charité. In this way papal letters were obtained against them to the bishop of Bath and his fellow judges, who cited them before them, and on their refusal to appear declared them contumacious, and put the bishop in possession, and this judgement the latter prays the pope to confirm. The pope now orders the above judges, with the assent of the proctors of either party, on security given by the prior and convent of La Charité to restore to them the possession of the monastery and to [re]hear and decide the question. If [the proctors will] not [assent] they are to remit the cause to be examined by the pope.
8 Kal. May.
Lateran.
(f. 82.)
Monition to the king of England to walk in the fear of God, who will convert his enemies to peace.
7 Kal. May.

(f. 82.)
The like to him, in view of the danger threatening the Holy Land, to make peace or truce with the king of France, to whom the pope has addressed a like counsel.

The like to the king of France.
10 Kal. May.
Lateran.
(f. 83.)
Mandate to the prior of St. Mary's Suthwerch and the deans of Suthwerch and St. Mary le Bow, on petition of the prior and canons of Ginges, to proceed in a cause between them and Thomas, called ‘Capra,’ of the diocese of Norwich, who has cited them before the precentor of Barnewelle and his colleagues, touching a yearly rent, their exception being that the said T. made an agreement not to demand the rent: the said judges having refused to admit their exception, they have appealed to the pope.

Lateran.

2 Non. May.
Lateran.
(f. 89.)

6 Kal. June.
Lateran.
(f. 101.)
Mandate to the archdeacon of Norwich to hear and decide a cause between Martin de Summa, papal sub-deacon, rector of Damerham, and the abbot and convent of Glastonbury, and V. clerk, of the diocese of Salisbury, about the chapel of Merton, belonging to the said church, already tried before the dean of Exeter and his fellow judges, who pronounced in his favour. The other side, making a vexatious appeal, ejected him from the said chapel, and, on his excepting before the chancellor of Wells and his colleagues, to whom letters on the above appeal had been obtained, that, as he had been despoiled pending appeal, he was not bound to answer until restitution had been made, such exception was not admitted: upon this, he has appealed to the pope, and prays that the cause so long protracted may be brought to a close, which the pope orders to be done, or else remitted to him, or, if not, to remit the examination of it to the said chancellor and his colleagues.
