Regesta, Vol. XLIII.

1 Honorius IV.

1286.
6 Id. April.
Perugia.
(f. 2.)
To Archibald, rector of Duglas, in the diocese of Glasgow, giving force to an indult to him of Martin IV., dated Perugia, 11 Kal. Jan. 4 Martin IV., which allows him to accept a prebend of Aberdeen, to which is annexed a parish church, and to hold it with the said church of Duglas. The bull is not attached to it, as the pope has not been consecrated.
15 Kal. May.
Perugia.
(f. 4d.)
To Master John de Stanford, dean of Dublin, who, not having been dispensed on account of illegitimacy, obtained first the treasurership of Ferns, and then the parish church of Cavendish, in the diocese of Norwich, and afterwards that of Loughhorough in Lincoln, having held the first for six years, the second for four, and the third for one. He was afterwards dispensed by Gregory X. to hold benefices to the value of 500l., and be promoted to the archiepiscopate or episcopate, on which he resigned the treasurership and accepted the deanery of Dublin, and the parish church of Yochel, in the diocese of Cloyne, retaining the other benefices. The dispensation having been lost, and its tenor alone existing under seal of Hugh, late bishop of Meath, a doubt has arisen, as it does not appear to be the usual style of the Roman court; wherefore the pope, at the king's request, allows him to retain fruits received, and to enjoy to the full the provisions of the said dispensation.
[Theiner, 129.]
1285.
7 Kal. June.
St. Peter's.
(f. 5.)
To Master Simon de Luca, canon of Lichfield, collector of the tenth in Tuscany and Maremma, assigning to him one florin a day for expenses.
1286.
12 Kal. May.
Perugia.
(f. 6.)
To Edward I., whose envoys, Master Walter, canon of Wells, and Helias de Harvilla went to Martin IV., and to the present pope, stating that the apostolic see had granted the tenth in Scotland, collected for the Holy Land subsidy, if the king of Scotland assented, to the king of England, to be applied in part to those Scotch magnates who joined the crusade; the said envoys prayed the pope to commit to the king, as having practical experience of the country, the selection of men from Scotland: on this point the pope intends to take Edward's advice, and replies in answer to the request of the envoys, that the papal grant for three years of the tenth collected in England, Ireland, and Wales, and also in Scotland, may be extended to five years, as the amount collected is so small, the pope, seeing that the concession has run for nine years, says that the king must be content with the three years term, but he will make a further grant if the king is in earnest, and it is necessary; in answer to further demands of the envoys, as to the Scotch tenth, the pope grants it on the king's taking the cross; with regard to the goods of intestates due to churches, pious uses, or prelates in England and Scotland, which, with consent of the prelates, the king asks the pope to grant him for five years, it is replied that as there is no precedent it cannot be done. The envoys further proposed that as the king has been hindered from taking the cross, he should be allowed to do so on or before the next ensuing feast of St. John Baptist, and set out within five years from the following Michaelmas, after which he was to be bound to do so; in reply the pope allows him to take the cross on or before next Christmas; but considering that the Christians and the sultan have made a truce for some time, and that the envoys do not know what number of men the king will take, nor how long he will stay, suspends his answer as to the period of five years from the ensuing Michaelmas. [Theiner, 130.]
8 Kal. May.
Perugia.
(f. 6d.)
To Edward I., confirming his foundation and endowment of a Cistercian monastery in his property [Maynan], in the diocese of St. Asaph, with the bishop's assent, and the union to it, with consent of the bishop of Bangor, of the monastery of Aberconwy, of the same order, transferring thence the abbot and convent, whose possessions the king has largely increased; all privileges and indults of the said monastery remaining as they were.
1285.
3 Kal. June.
St. Peter's.
(f. 11.)
Confirmation of the election of John de Saunfordia, dean of St. Patrick's, as archbishop of Dublin. The see being void by the death of John [de Derlington], the chapters of Holy Trinity and St. Patrick's elected him, and the election was presented to Martin IV. and examined. On that pope's death, all right in it was resigned by John de Saunfordia, who was then at Rome, and the present pope, to avoid long journeys, expense, and possible discord, appointed him and five canons of the said churches to elect. His choice fell on Master John de Notingham, canon of St. Patrick's, that of the canons on John de Saunfordia, on which John de Notingham, on behalf of the other canons, elected John de Saunfordia.
Concurrent letters to the dean and chapter of St. Patrick's, and to the prior and convent of Holy Trinity, Dublin, to the clergy and people of the city and diocese of Dublin, to all vassals of the see, and to the king. [Theiner, 132.]

15 Kal. Aug.
Tivoli.

[Theiner, 133.]

Tivoli.
(f. 21.)
Provision to William de Awltona, called ‘Trenchefuyl,’ of the rectory of Bertone, in the diocese of Norwich, formerly held by the pope, any papal indult to the contrary nothwithstanding.

10 Kal. July.
St. Peter's.
(f. 21d.)
Dispensation to Master Walter de Bathonia, one of the king's clerks, dispensed by pope Martin on account of illegitimacy; but as he was described in that pope's letters as doctor of canon instead of civil law, the pope repairs this mistake, and grants him the full benefit of the former dispensation.
15 Kal. July.
St. Peter's.
(f. 22.)
Mandate to the bishop of St. Andrews to sell to the prior and convent of Friars Preachers, Berwick, as their own place is too far from the town for the people to come to confession and sermons, and for the friars to visit the sick, the place in the said town late held, but now left by the Friars of Penitence; if the statements in their petition are true.

In the cause thereon instituted between the abbot and convent on one side, and Robert and the monks of the priory on the other, brought on appeal to the pope, John XXI. Nicholas III. and Martin IV. successively appointed persons to hear it; and on Robert's renouncing his right in the election, William and John, and lastly Thomas, were, by the monks of the priory, elected priors, William and John having resigned their right in the election; on which Master Peregrinus, the last appointed auditor of the cause, issued a sentence in favour of the abbot and convent, from which Ralph, proctor for the monks of the priory, appealed to the pope, who appointed L[atinus], bishop of Ostia and Velletri to hear the appeal, and on Ralph being at the point of death, Master Scolarius de Sancto Geminiano was appointed to take his place, but on his declining, the process could not go on, to the prejudice of the abbot and convent of the monastery and Master Ralph. The pope therefore issues the above mandate.
13 Kal. Mar.
St. Sabina's.
(f. 75d.)
Confirmation of the election of John, archbishop of York, on the voidance of the see by the death of William [Wickwane]. Three of the college were appointed to take the votes of the chapter, on which it appears that four beneficiaries and ten canons voted for John, and the other votes were dispersed; on which John, archdeacon of the East Riding, one of the above scrutators, declared John elected; on the election being presented to the pope for confirmation, and, on examination, a doubt having arisen, to avoid delay and expense, John resigned; on which the pope appointed A[ncher], cardinal of St. Praxed's, H[ugh of Evesham], cardinal of St. Laurence's in Lucina, J[ordan], cardinal of St. Eustace's, and B. Camerarius, Percival de Lavania, Peter de Sabello, the pope's nephew, Neapolio Orsini, papal chaplains, John himself, the abovementioned archdeacon, and Master Thomas de Abberbyri, canons of York, then at Rome, to elect for that tour, without prejudice to the church of York; and on John being elected, he being then precentor of Lincoln and canon of York, and having given his vote for the said archdeacon, cardinal Ancher published the election, which the pope confirms, ordering him to be consecrated by the bishop of Ostia, and the pallium to be given him.
Ibid. Concurrent letters to the chapter of York; to the clergy, and to the people of the city and diocese; to all vassals of that church, to the suffragans of the see; and to the king.

St. Sabina's.
(f. 76d.)
Dispensation to Master John called ‘Romanus,’ precentor of Lincoln, canon of York, to retain his benefices with fruits received, and to be promoted to the episcopal or archiepiscopal dignity; he having been dispensed on account of illegitimacy, by O[tto de Montferrat], bishop of Porto, when cardinal of St. Nicholas in Carcere, so as to be ordained and hold benefices, but not a bishopric without special papal licence; upon which he had the church of Boulton in Lonesdale, and then by licence from Innocent IV. the church of Wallop, in the diocese of Winchester, and afterwards by dispensation from pope Alexander the church of Melling, in the diocese of York, and again by dispensation of Gregory X. the chancellorship and the prebend of Kellesey in Lincoln on resigning Melling; and having been licensed by pope John to be promoted to the episcopal dignity, and on resigning the said chancellorship and prebend to accept the precentorship and prebend of Nassigton in Lincoln, together with the other above-named churches; and being further licensed by pope Martin to retain the same with fruits received, and also to be promoted to archiepiscopal dignity. Now, on his election to the see of York, some doubt having been thrown on the dispensation for illegitimacy in regard to the episcopal dignity, he has prayed the pope to supply whatever defect there may be; he having held Boulton for thirtythree years, Wallop for twenty-eight, and Melling for seven, the chancellorship for six, and the precentorship and prebends for the same number of years. The pope therefore grants the above indult, considering that he has taught theology at Paris for several years, and has given proof of good life and approved morals.

(f. 92.)
Indult, at the request of Edmund, earl of Cornwall, to Roger de Drayton, subdeacon, to be ordained and retain the rectory of Harewelle, in the diocese of Salisbury, notwithstanding that having petitioned pope Clement to dispense him on account of illegitimacy so as to be ordained and hold a benefice with cure of souls, that pope ordered the late archbishop of Canterbury, and the bishop of Lincoln, in whose diocese Roger then was, being then excommunicate, to grant the dispensation; but as he has a scruple of conscience, because at the time of the petition he was not, as stated, in the pope's presence, he prays the pope to supply whatever defect there may be; on which the pope grants the above indult.
5 Id. Jan.
St. Sabina's.
(f. 97.)
Inhibition, addressed to the abbess and convent of the Augustinian monastery of Leghe, in the diocese of Exeter, endowed by Matilda de Clara, countess of Gloucester and Hertford, to alienate, except in cases permitted by law, their church ornaments, silver vessels, and other goods used in divine offices, which are of no small value.

On hearing that William died in Lombardy before taking possession of the said rectory, the pope, at the request of Hugh, cardinal of St. Laurence's in Lucina, confers it on Reginald with the above conditions, the vicarage of Lidney, in the diocese of Hereford, being resigned by him.

Marcellinus and Peter, to hear the cause, when the proctor of the dean and chapter prayed that Malachi's election might be cancelled and all else confirmed; Nicolas being present in person took exception, on which the said cardinal referred the matter to the pope, and to save further expense in litigation resigned his right into the pope's hands.
