To Thomas, elect of London. Provision to him, archdeacon of Richmond in York, S.T.B. and M.A., of the church of London, void by the death of Robert, during whose life it was specially reserved by the present pope. Apostolatus officium.
Concurrent letters to the chapter of the church, to the clergy and to the people of the city and diocese—Apostolatus etc.; to the archbishop of Canterbury—Ad cumulum; and to Henry, king of England—Gracie divine premium. (A. and Ja. Goier. | A. xx. x. x. x. x. x. x. de Feletis.) [2½ pp. The usual letter to the vassals of the church is omitted, evidently by inadvertence, as the fee for it is indicated. Thomas Kempe is in Eubel, Hierarchia, vol. II, p. 199, under date 1448, Aug. 26 (the date of the ‘Obligatio’), from the Schede of Garampi.

To Cornelius Omulalaid, bishop of Emly. Translating him, who is at the apostolic see, from the church of Clonfert to that of Emly, void by the translation made by the pope this day of Cornelius Ocunlis, who is also at the said see, to Clonfert.

Concurrent letters to the chapter, to the clergy and to the people, as in the preceding, and to the vassals of the church—Romani etc.; to the archbishop of Cashel—Ad cumulum; and to Henry, king of England—Gracie divine etc. (An. and G. de Callio. | An. xxii. xi. xi. xi. xi. xi. xi. de Adria.) [4 pp. Eubel has ‘Cornelius O'Mulalayd’ in vol. II, p. 185, under date ‘1448 Junii [sic] 30,’ from ‘Obligationes,’ vol. 72, f. 33d. which, however, has the date die Veneris iii. Kal. Sept. 1448, like the present Register. Under Clonfert (ibid. p. 146) Eubel has the right date, viz. ‘1448 Aug. 30.’]
Ibid.
(f. 20d.)
To Cornelius Ocunlis, bishop of Clonfert. Translating him from the church of Emly to that of Clonfert, void at the apostolic see and therefore reserved to the pope by the resignation made there to the pope of John Wyth, by his proctor, Cornelius Omulalaid, bishop [now] of Emly, then a bishop in the universal church.

In the case of the present and of the preceding translation the ‘Obligationes’ give fuller details, reproduced by Eubel. For the provision to Cornelius Ocunlis, a Friar Minor, of the see of Emly, 11 Sept. 1444, see Cal. Papal Lett.IX, p. 435.]

To the bishop of Leighlin. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Patrick Oleachlorr, a monk of the Cistercian monastery of Leix (de Lege dei) in the diocese of Leighlin, contained that on the voidance thereof by the resignation of Donald, [now] a monk, then abbot thereof, made to the abbot of Baltinglass (de Valle Salutis), of the said order, in the diocese of Dublin, the father abbot of Leix, who admitted it, the convent unanimously elected in due form the above Patrick, a professed monk of the order, in priest's orders, who consented to the election and had it confirmed by the said father abbot, and in virtue of the said election and confirmation obtained possession of the rule and administration, and has exercised them for several years, having been duly blessed. At the said petition, adding that he doubts whether for certain causes the election and confirmation hold good, and the said abbey being, as the pope has learned, still void as above, the pope hereby orders the above bishop, if he find Patrick fit, to make provision to him thereof, value not exceeding 10 marks sterling. He is thereafter to take to the above or other catholic bishop (antistes) the usual oath of fealty according to the form enclosed, which the said or such other bishop is to cause to be sent, by the said or such other bishop's letters patent sealed with the seal of the said or such other bishop (per tuas vel ipsius antistitis patentes litteras tuo vel ipsius sigillo munitas), to the pope.

[2⅓ pp. The preamble, which was in the form beginning ‘Romani pontificis,’ has been cancelled and replaced in the margin by that in the form beginning ‘Divina disponente,’ and by means of copious alterations and corrections the whole of the bull of translation and the concurrent letters have been brought into the same form as above,f. 20d.

O.’ [Pontanus], ‘Rubricatus est per me Jo(hannem) Ruffi’ and ‘Primus de provisionibus prelatorum, de regularibus et litteris dominorum cardinalium anno secundo domini nostri Nicolay pape Vti.’ A preceding flyleaf has, in the usual more modern hand, ‘Vid(i) Hib. Ang. et tot(us) [or tot(um)], pro P(a)P(a),’ ‘Vidi de novo pro R(everenda) C(amera) A(postolica) Hib. Ang.’ with references to two folios in the volume. It may be noted that the Irish items in the volume have in the margin the same early 16th century ‘H’ as that of the ‘Hib.’ on the flyleaf.
