(f. 3d.)
Confirmation, with exemplification, to Gregory de Londoniis, layman, gold embroiderer, of the pope's household, of a mandate of pope Alexander, ordering the dean of St. Paul's to cause to be paid to him 15 marks a year by the prior and convent of Bermondsey. As they did not pay the money, the dean issued a sentence of interdict against them, and cited them to appear within three months; and on their disregarding this, by authority of papal letters he excommunicated and suspended, the prior, subprior, cellarer, sacristan, and conyent, again citing them. Gregory himself having appeared, the pope ordered the bishop of Palestrina to hear the case, and in the contumacious absence of the other party gave sentence in his favour, condemning the others in costs, and to remain excommunicate till they made full satisfaction, which sentence the pope confirms. The above instrument is dated Orvieto, 1263, October 15.

(f. 27.)
Confirmation, with exemplification, to James de Divona, rector of the secular chapel of St. John Baptist, in the court of the Cluniac monastery of Lewes, of the sentence, condemnation, and taxation given in his favour in the cause between him and Master Robert de Hastinges, canon, then official of Chichester, about the said chapel, first heard by the abbot of Begham, and then, on appeal by Divona, committed by pope Alexander to the archdeacons of Canterbury and London and the official of London, who remitted it to the pope, before whom the parties were ordered to appear. On James appearing, G. cardinal of St. George's was ordered to hear the case, and Master Robert, on his non-appearance, was declared contumacious by the chaplain, John Yspanus, to whom the cause had been committed by the cardinal, in whose absence in foreign parts the pope appointed Master Naverarus, his chaplain and general auditor in causes committed to cardinals, as substitute, by whom, after full deliberation, the adverse party not appearing, sentence was given in favour of James, and Robert was condemned in costs, and ordered to make satisfaction for fruits received, which were both taxed at a certain sum by the said auditor. This sentence the pope confirms. The instruments are dated Orvieto, 1263, Nov. 19 and Nov. 26.

15 Kal. April.
Orvieto.
(f. 43.)
To Master Peter de Sancto Mauro, papal chaplain, archdeacon of Surrey. Sentence given by the pope in his favour in regard to the said archdeaconry, originally conferred on him with institution and induction by Ademar, bishop elect of Winchester, whose clerk he was, together with the church of Farnham and its chapels annexed to the archdeaconry. Into these, on his being obliged to leave the realm, together with the bishop, Oliver de Tracy, clerk, of the diocese of Exeter, procured himself to be intruded, but pope Alexander annulled all such intrusion into benefices held by the bishop's servants, ordering the archbishop of Tours and friar Velasco, the pope's penitentiary, to restore them. On Oliver's resignation the return of Master Peter was opposed by J. bishop of Winchester, who gave the said benefices to Master Richard de Sancto Gorono, papal chaplain, which appointment Peter prayed pope Urban to cancel. This appeal was opposed, on the ground that Walter, bishop of Exeter, who held the said benefices before the collation of them was made to Peter, obtained a papal indult to retain his benefices; and Master Richard added that, on the bishop's resignation of the same, the king presented Oliver to the archbishop of Canterbury, who instituted him, and on Oliver's resignation, J. bishop of Winchester gave them to Richard. The pope decides that Richard had no right in the said benefices, which belong to Peter. Silence is imposed on Richard, Peter being invested, and his rights conveyed by the collation of bishop Ademar are declared to be intact.
[Marginal note.] This letter was read by the vice-chancellor in presence of the pope, who, after a second reading, ordered it to be shown to cardinal Jordan, who kept it for three days and then returned it to the vice-chancellor to be expedited. Finally the vice-chancellor told this to the pope, the said cardinal being present, and saying that it could rightly be expedited, which the pope ordered to the done.

4 Non. Jan.
Orvieto.
(f. 109.)
Mandate to the bishops of St. Andrews and Aberdeen, and the abbot of Dunfermelin, to examine and decide the following cause. The king of Scotland has represented that Walter Bulloc and Mary, countess of Manethet, his wife, summoned before him John Russel, of the diocese of Ely, and Isabella his wife, both parties claiming the earldom of Manethet, and that the possession of the earldom was adjudged to Walter and Mary, the right of either party to the proprietorship of the earldom being reserved. It was afterwards suggested to the pope that, although, on the marriage of John and Isabella in Scotland, with the consent of the king, the earls of Mar, Rocham (Buchan), and Strathern, Alan Durward (Ostiarius), and other vassals, took an oath of fealty to them, the said earls and Alan, and Malcolm, earl of Fife, John Cumin, Alexander Oviot, Alan called filius Comitis, Hugh de Berkeley, David de Graham, David de Lothar, Reginald called ‘Cams,’ Hugh de Haberintham, and Fresekin de Minreue (Moray), with certain accomplices of that realm, John Cumin and his accomplices maliciously and falsely charging the said John Russel and Isabella, his wife, who had joined the crusade with having poisoned Walter Cumin, Isabella's former husband, seized and held them captive until they were compelled to give certain rents, lands, and possessions to the said earls, and to Alan, and to renounce and make over to John Cumin and his heirs the earldom of Manethet, and to take an oath to leave the realm, and not to return unless they purged themselves of the murder of Walter Cumin, by seven or more barons, being peers of the realm, and gave Robert, John Russel's brother, as hostage, until they gave up to John Cumin the charters of the earldom. Further particulars were added that John Cumin, the earls, and others aforesaid, had acted by authority of the king, then a minor, and had procured that Walter Bulloc, who pretended that his wife was heiress of the earldom, should be invested with it; thereupon the pope ordered his chaplain, Pontius Nicolai, provost of Mont Cenis, to proceed to those parts and make enquiry, but he, exceeding his instructions, cited the king and certain prelates, earls, barons, and others beyond the realm, and wrongly adjudging the earldom to John Russel and Isabella, issuing sentences of excommunication, suspension, and interdict against prelates and nobles and others, who pleaded that they ought not to be cited beyond the realm. Wherefore the king prays that what Pontius has done may be revoked, and that he may be ordered not to meddle any more in the matter, great scandal having arisen by reason of his procedure. The pope therefore orders as above, directing the bishops and abbots to allow of no appeal, and cause their sentence to be observed, the civil jurisdiction of the realm being respected. [Theiner, 93.]

Cosmas and Damian, to recover sums due to them from Boldrus de Burgo, Hugh Monaldi, Castra Gualfredi, and their fellows, Florentine merchants, which they say they cannot pay; but as John bishop of Winchester owes the merchants 8,000 marks, the pope has ordered the bishop of Worcester and others to induce the bishop of Winchester to pay, within two months, what he owes to the representatives of the above cardinals, and not to the merchants any papal indult to the contrary notwithstanding. The pope has revoked all sentences of interdict, suspension, or excommunication issued on account of the said debt in favour of the merchants, who refuse to pay what they owe to the cardinals, and begs the king to assist the bishop of Worcester, and not to let them leave the realm until they do pay.

Mandate to the sub-dean of St. Mary's, Stafford, if the truth of the facts stated appear on enquiry, to warn Master Nicholas de Baginden, official of Norwich, to make satisfaction within a given time to Robert, rector of Stamford. Robert summoned John called ‘le Bray,’ layman, of the diocese of Norwich, before the precentor of the monastery of Huntingdon, to whom the prior of the said monastery and Master William de Waleby, papal chaplain, canon of York, papal delegates, had committed the cause about certain tithes; le Bray's proctor pleaded that, as a crusader, he was not bound to appear before papal delegates unless the letters appointing them made mention of the indult granted to crusaders, and that he was prepared to answer before the bishop, but, as he offered no proof that le Bray was a crusader, the sub-delegate pronounced in favour of going on with the cause, on which the proctor appealed to the delegates. Afterwards Le Bray, appearing before the sub-delegate and renouncing the appeal, took an oath to speak truly on the matter of the cause, but afterwards declaring himself a crusader, had recourse to the official, and caused the rector to be summoned before him. The official inhibited the rector from prosecuting his cause before the delegates or sub-delegate; whereupon the rector pleaded that, seeing the proctor had not proved his point, and le Bray had renounced his appeal, and the rector was ready to prove his case, le Bray was not to be further heard. And, since the official refused to hear the rector, he appealed to the pope, on which the official caused him to be seized and detained. He has since appealed in person to the pope, who issues the above mandate, and orders that, if the official does not obey it, he is to be summoned to appear before the pope within three months.
[Marginal note.]—The pope kept this letter for three days, and after deliberating with the bishop of Ostia first, and then with John Gaietano, ordered it to be expedited.

Mandate to the treasurer of Salisbury to sequestrate the church of Niweton, in the diocese of Exeter, and to collect and keep its fruits until the litigation about it is ended. Masters Walter de Braton, and William de Capella, and Roger Barat, clerks, of the diocese of Exeter, each asserted a right to the said church, and appealed to the pope, who appointed William, cardinal of St. Mark's, to hear the cause, and, as after many pleadings and rejoinders, it was doubted whether the fruits of the church would not be dissipated by William, who holds it, the pope was petitioned to intervene, which he does by issuing the above mandate.
[Marginal note.]—On the cause being submitted to his brethren by the cardinal as to whether this should be done, the brief was expedited.

Mandate to the abbot of St. Augustine's, Canterbury, and to the prior of St. Andrew's, Rochester, to make provision to Adam de Cantuaria, whom the pope has already had examined by Master Gregory de Neapoli, papal subdeacon and chaplain, who reports well of him in literature, of a minor prebend of St. Paul's, London, value 10 marks, if a like benefice has not been already given under papal mandate by the dean and chapter to any other. Adam is to be received as canon, and the condition of residence is required.

Mandate to the official of Paris to hear, and within six months decide, the cause between William de Monte Gauguerii, papal chaplain, clerk of the late Ademar, bishop of Winchester, rector of Overton in that diocese, and Master John de Siccavilla, rector of All Saints, London, who, on the said A. then bishop elect, his chaplain, and others, being compelled to leave the realm on account of the storm of persecution, took possession of the church of Overton, which on William's return he reassumed. But Master John summoned William before the official of Canterbury, who treated William unjustly, wherefore he appealed to the pope; and the official, disregarding the appeal, issued sentence of excommunication and interdict against William and his church; whereupon the pope ordered the official of Paris, if the facts stated were found to be true, to annul whatever had been done subsequent to the appeal, and to bring the cause to an end within six months, or, if not, to remit the parties to the said official of Canterbury, unless the see of Winchester was meantime filled, and to condemn the appellant in costs. But if the appeal was legitimate, and if by the malice of Master John the cause could not be terminated within the appointed time, it was then to be remitted to the pope. Master John then brought forward frivolous exceptions which the official of Paris did not admit, and ought to have gone on with the cause, William's costs being reserved; but this he did not do, nor did he remit it to the pope, so that William for two years and more has been unable to obtain his rights, and has been put to great expenses. William now appeals, and although the official of Paris is to be blamed, the pope nevertheless issues to him the above mandate; if it cannot be carried out, the cause is to be remitted to the pope, and the parties ordered to appear personally or by proctors within two months. Witnesses are to be compelled to appear.

Confirmation, with exemplification, to Master Matthew de Salerno, papal subdeacon and chaplain, of the grant made to him by Patrick, archbishop of Armagh, of the church of Martiri, in the diocese of Meath, in the patronage of the bishop of that diocese, by whose neglect to appoint a rector the collation has lapsed to the metropolitan; Master John de Dubiltum, then rector of the same having obtained the church of Kanlies, in the same diocese, without papal dispensation. The archbishop's collation is dated Dunelek, 6 Non. July, 1263.
Ibid. Concurrent mandate to the archdeacon of Meath to induct and defend the said Master Matthew de Salerno in possession of the above church of Martiri, Master John, or any other unlawful detainer, being removed from it.

Mandate to the bishop of Dunkeld to cause the canonry and prebend of his church, held by the bishop of Dunblane at the time of his promotion, to be given up, together with fruits received, to Master William de Lacornere, papal chaplain, the pope having ordered the bishops of Dumblane and Glasgow to induct and defend him in possession of the same; but although William was received as canon, the bishop's nephew, Nicholas, asserting that his uncle had given him the prebend, and acting on his advice, has put William to much trouble and expense in trying to get possession of it. The bishop is ordered to pay annually to William, until he gets the prebend, a sum equal to the fruits of it; any previous proceedings by the said William, or any benefices he has obtained, notwithstanding.

Mandate, at the request of Jordan, cardinal of SS. Cosmas and Damian, to the official of Exeter to make provision to Richard de Honeton, clerk, of some benefice with cure of souls to the value of 40 marks, in the diocese of Winchester or Salisbury. The pope having ordered the bishop of Exeter, on Richard's resignation of Holecumbe, to make provision to him of some benefice in the diocese of Winchester, the bishop committed the order to Master Luke de Peynton, papal subdeacon, who gave Richard the church of Dorking, which he held for some time; but on Richard, papal subdeacon and notary, nephew of R. cardinal of St. Angelo's asserting his right to Dorking, it was given up to him by Richard de Honeton, who has, on examination, been found fit to hold a benefice.

(f. 289.)
Mandate to Master Hugh de Cantilupe, papal chaplain, archdeacon of Gloucester, and to the treasurer of Salisbury, to make provision to Master John de Ebulo, papal subdeacon and chaplain, of a prebend or dignity in the church of London. The pope had already ordered Masters Bernard de Siena, papal subdeacon, and Innocent de Barolo, papal chaplain, living in England, to make provision to him of a parsonage or dignity and prebend in some cathedral or other church in England those of Lincoln, York, and Salisbury excepted. When Innocent made provision to him of the deanery of London, a question arose between him and the chapter, on which the pope ordered J. cardinal of SS. Cosmas and Damian to settle it, giving him power also to grant a pension to the said John on the goods of the deanery or chapter, and on John's resignation of his right to the deanery, Nicolas Raulins, the chapter's proctor, consenting to the arrangement, provision was made to John of a canonry and prebend of London, or if a prebend was not at once void he was to have a pension of 40 marks on the goods of the chapter, payable annually at the New Temple on All Saints day, and on getting a prebend to give up so much of the pension as the prebend brought in; all which was confirmed by the pope; Master Robert, treasurer of Salisbury, and Thomas de Cantilupe, having orders to induct and defend the said John or his proctor in possession of the prebend, or to see that the pension was paid; any papal indult granted to the bishop and chapter of London notwithstanding. After this, two prebends became void, one of which was given to Master Thomas de Cantilupe, nephew of the bishop of Worcester, and the other to Amalric, son of Simon de Montfort, earl of Leicester, in consideration of whom, and to avoid the worry of litigation, John took no steps to assert his right, but petitioned the pope to apply a remedy to his case; the pope therefore issues this mandate, which is in no way to prejudice the former grant, or his receiving the whole of the above-named pension.

To Master Berard of Naples, papal subdeacon and notary, who is also prior of Andover (Andevria), in the diocese of Winchester. By custom he has the right to present a fit person for the perpetual vicarage of St. Mary of the same place, to the abbot of St. Florent-lez-Saumur, in the diocese of Angers, to which the said priory is subject, to be by him presented to the bishop: but as the vicarage has been long void, and as on account of the disturbance of the realm the prior had no notice of the voidance, so that neither he nor the abbot could present, the said prior and abbot are licensed to present a fit person within six months from the time that the prior was aware of the voidance of the vicarage; any collation, provision, or investiture by any ordinary notwithstanding.
Id. July.
