Faculty to John, prior of Holy Trinity, London, on account of his services to Master Albert, papal notary and legate in England, to hold and administer the said priory.

He was afterwards suspended in his absence by Master Robert, precentor, John de Cheham, papal chaplain, canon of London, and John de Hemingford, clerk, after inquiry by order of the diocesan for non-observance of his oath. This oath or promise, though lawful as to its matter, is of a simoniacal nature, and he is dispensed from any penalty in consequence thereof, with suppletion of whatever defect there may be in his promotion, and notwithstanding that the pope has committed the same matter to Master Adenulf, papal subdeacon and chaplain.

Mandate to the archbishop of Canterbury to make provision to Richard. scholar, son of Matthew Anibald, nephew of R. cardinal of St. Angelo's, or his proctor, of a prebendal or other benefice with cure of souls in England, the cathedrals of York and Salisbury excepted, causing him to be received and installed, notwithstanding any oath as to the number of canons, or papal indult to the contrary. The pope has already ordered Master Peter called ‘Egyptius,’ canon of York, to make provision of a benefice in England to Anibald, clerk, son of the late Anibald, steward of R. cardinal of St. Angelo; but when provision was made to him of the church of Stentrop, in the diocese of Durham, and Master Walter de Merton, who held that church, opposed such provision, the cause between Anibald and Walter was at length brought to an amicable composition by the bishop of Bath, whose arbitration was confirmed by the pope; but since Anibald got little or nothing by this composition and provision, the pope ordered the prior of Merton, in the diocese of Winchester, and Master W. de Turri, canon of London, papal subdeacon, to make some provision to Anibald, who, however, became a Friar Preacher. The pope, at the said cardinal's request, transfers the provision to Richard.

Mandate to the abbot of Waltham to cause Master William de Kilkenni, clerk, of London, the king's chancellor, to be received as canon of London on his resigning a certain prebend in favour of Alexander de Ferentino, papal subdeacon and chaplain, and to make provision to him of another prebend, the said Alexander having had conferred on him by G. cardinal of St. Eustace's, in accordance with the pope's verbal mandate, a canonry of London and a prebend, when void, which the pope confirmed by mandate addressed to Master Berard de Nimpha, papal writer, and Philip de Alatro, chaplain of O. cardinal of St. Mary's in Via Lata, directing them to install the said Alexander. They sent a mandate to the above effect to the dean and chapter, but the prebend, then void by the death of Thomasius de Anesty, canon of the said church, was in elusion of the above mandate given by the bishop to Master William, the dean and chapter contending that the mandate did not affect them, as the collation of prebends belonged to the bishop, and that the number of prebends and canonries could not be increased. Thus the said chaplain got nothing by the provision, upon which the pope ordered his chaplain, Master Rostand, to hear the proctors of both parties, and, on his report, the pope orders that Alexander shall have the above prebend, and provision of the one next void be made to William.

The bishop committed the mandate to Peter and James, clerks, of Ferentino, living in England, who gave James the church of Welewes, in the diocese of Lincoln, which he was unable to retain, as it was held to the uses of the monastery of Alliwell, in the diocese of London, and confirmed thereto by the pope; and, although the pope enjoined the same bishop that provision should be made to James of some benefice in her gift by the abbess of the said monastery James betook himself to the order of St. Augustine, so that Angelo had all the trouble and expense for nothing, in consideration of which the pope orders provision to be made to his other son Leonard.

(f. 133.)
Mandate to Friar John, a Friar Minor, papal nuncio in England, to make inquiry into the transference to human uses by many prelates of the realm of rights of patronage and advowson, granting them to lay persons by alienation or otherwise, sometimes by consent of their chapters, and, as the pope can hardly believe, by favour of the diocesans. Abbots also and priors of divers orders have obtained by purchase or other crooked contracts the right of patronage in parish churches, applying them to their own uses; other abuse of patronage, and acts of nepotism are reported. Such alienations, sales, or purchases of patronage and advowson are annulled, and restitution is to be made by those concerned, and a report is to be sent to the pope, that he may take such proceedings as may be necessary.

Papal letters having been issued to the bishops of Clonmacnoise and Leighlin and the vice-prior provincial of the Friars Preachers in Ireland to examine and report to the pope on the matter, the suffragans desisted from their opposition, and prayed the pope to confirm the election made by the chapter.
