Regesta, Vol. XVI.

6 Gregory IX.

7 Id. June.
(f. 12.)
Letter to the king complaining of the violent treatment of bearers of papal letters sent into England for the reformation and correction of ecclesiastical offences, the king's servants having laid violent hands on both Italian and English clerks, outrage which the king has been in no hurry to expiate. The pope demands satisfaction and reparation. In regard to the marriage of the king's justiciar, the pope will do what, with justice, can be done. [Fædera.]
5 Id. June.
(f. 13d.)
Letter to the king's justiciar, assuring him of the pope's favour and justice. He might have tempered his wrath by considering that the letters of enquiry could not justly have been refused.
5 Id. June.
(f. 14.)
Letter to the archbishop of York and other bishops and prelates in England touching the outrages committed on clerks and bearers of papal letters in England, ordering them, if satisfaction be not made, to publicly excommunicate the offenders.
[Raynaldi, xxi. 64.]
15 Kal. July.
(f. 19d.)
Mandate to the convent of Canterbury to elect an archbishop, the prior elected by them having resigned on the presentation of his election by T. the sacristan, J. the precentor, and G. and R., monks: the embrace of Rachel being preferred by him to the cares of Martha.
5 Kal. Aug.
(f. 34.)
Mandate to the archbishop of York and the bishops of Coventry and Durham to put a stop to scandals by publishing in England this letter, forbidding executors of papal mandates which order provision to be made to clerks in or out of the realm, to suspend prelates from collation of benefices, or to grant churches without consent of the secular patrons, unless by special papal mandate.
10 Kal. Nov.
(f. 46.)
Grant of protection to the prior and convent of St. Oswald's Nostle, who pay 50 marks a year to the monastery of St. Sistus, Rome, out of the proceeds of the church of Bamburg, granted to them by pope Honorius: and indult forbidding anyone to cite them in regard to the said church, except before the pope.
Non. Nov.
(f. 50.)
Mandate to the abbot of Stanford, in the diocese of London, Master J. de Cadomo, canon of London, and P. Garibaldi, the king's clerk, to enquire into the following matter: a papal mandate was sent to the archdeacon of Bedeford ordering him to make provision to Master Robert de Sumercote of a benefice in the diocese of Lincoln, notwithstanding a rent in the church of Croindenn, which Stephen, late archbishop of Canterbury, had granted to him as a parsonage; the parish church of Castre, in the gift of the abbot and convent of Peterborough, being at length void, the said archdeacon gave it to the said Master Robert, then studying at Bologna, inducting his proctor into corporal possession of it: afterwards the said abbot and convent, under pretext of a papal mandate which they said they had received about the provision of N. kinsman of Master Calcedonius, papal writer, made provision to him in the said church by Master J. de Ferentino, archdeacon of Norwich, to the injury of the said Master Robert; and when the question between them was brought before the pope, it was decided that the said Master Robert should have the church of Castre, notwithstanding the rent received by him from the church of Croindenn, and to pay N. 10 marks a year; but since it was objected by the adverse party that the vicar of Croindenn had, without lawful dispensation, received another church with cure of souls, and that by this the vicarage was added to the parsonage, the pope now orders the vicar to be removed, and Master R. to be made content with the entire church of Croindenn. Otherwise he is to be put into corporal possession of the church of Castre, and to have the parsonage of Croindenn, paying the 10 marks to N. as aforesaid.
3 Kal. Dec.
(f. 53.)
Licence to the Cistercian abbot and convent of Cumhir, who are in a mountainous district remote from parish churches, to hear the confessions of, and administer sacraments to, their servants and household.
4 Non. Dec.
(f. 57d.)
Indult to the abbot and convent of Oseney that they shall not be summoned to appear in a cause concerning their property more than two days' journey from their monastery.
4 Id. Jan.
(f. 66d.)
Indult to the king of England to resume liberties, possessions, bailiwicks, and other things granted by him to the prejudice of the crown, notwithstanding his unlawful oaths, concessions made to ecclesiastical persons and places being excepted.
(Ibid.) Mandate to R. de Sancto Johanne, the king's chaplain, to enjoin a fitting penance to the king for his delinquencies [in alienating possessions of the crown, contrary to his coronation oath], as in the above letter.
12 Kal. Feb.
(f. 74.)
Mandate to the bishop of Lisieux to ascertain what degree of affinity there is between R. the Marshal of England, earl of Pembroke, and G[ervaise] de Dinan, his wife; and to report to the pope.

(5 Kal. Mar.)
(f. 100d.)
Mandate to the abbots of Strata Florida and Vallecrucis and the prior of Vallecrucis to examine witnesses and take their depositions in writing in regard to certain instruments touching the possessions of the abbot and convent of Cormeilles, which are said to have been accidentally burned, so that no question may be raised as to their possessions and goods.
5 Non. Mar.
(f. 101d.)
Indult to G. de Luci, priest, dean of London, already dispensed as the son of a clandestine marriage, to be promoted to further honours and dignities, notwithstanding the said defect.
5 Non. Mar.
(f. 104d.)
Faculty to the bishop of London to absolve those clerks who have laid violent hands on others, satisfaction being made; to dispense those who, unwittingly, under sentence of excommunication or suspension, have exercised their ministry, and to deal with simoniacal offenders according to the decrees of the general council.
4 Id. Mar.
(f. 105.)
Indult to the abbot and convent of Abendon to appropriate to the uses of their infirmary, when void, the church of Codeston, in the diocese of Lincoln, of their patronage, a vicar's portion being reserved, and a yearly pension assigned to J. cardinal of St. Praxed's, rector thereof.
