[2¼ pp. In Eubel, ad loc., under the above date, with the spelling ‘Oflannagan.’ This time he does not refer to the present Register, but he has evidently used it as well as the Obligationes, vol. 72, f. 78, to which he does refer. The Oblig. do not mention the monastery of ‘Samaria,’ as Eubel spells it, he having evidently taken it from the present Register. Eubel does not mention, as in the Oblig. and as below in the present Register, Bartholomew's illegitimacy as the son of a priest professed of the order of St. Augustine and an unmarried woman, on account of which he is dispensed to hold the church of Derry.

Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Italian: ‘Calisto III. 1458, Anno 4°. Lib. 1°.’ A flyleaf has the contemporary description ‘Primus de benefitiis, de prebendis vacantibus, de provisionibus, de regularibus et de Curia anno iii. domini Calisti pape iii.’ A similar contemporary description occurs, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume. F. i. is headed: ‘De benefitiis vacantibus anno 3°,’ There are ff. i–cccxxx. of text a few of which are blank.
  • 2. The letters of these names are uncertain.
  • 3. de persona bone memorie Raymundi episcopi tunc electi Enachdunen., the description showing that he was consecrated.
  • 4. This order is an unusual inversion.
  • 5. The top outer corners of this and a number of other leaves at this part of the volume have been torn away. Consequently the date is injured to the extent shown by the brackets: ‘Datum Rome apud Sanctum Pet[rum Anno Incarnationis dominice] Millesimo quadringentesimo quing[uagesimo septimo, Sexto] Kal. Junii Anno Tercio.’ The date of the following letter shows that ‘Sexto’ is missing before ‘Kal.’
  • 6. The latter part of the address, viz. ‘electo Derensi’ and the usual ‘salutem etc.’ have been torn away, as explained in the preceding note.
  • 7. i.e. without the usual letter to Henry king of England.
  • 8. The brackets mark the damage described in the last note but one.
  • 9. The text was ‘de presbytero genitus et coniugata.’ The word ‘presbytero’ is cancelled and superscribed P(etru)s [de Varris], ‘coniugato’ being substituted in the margin and subscribed ‘Cassatum et correctum de mandato M. Camerinen., pro r(everendissi)mo domino R(oderico) Valentin. vicecancellario, P. de Varris.’ The word ‘coniugata’ is similarly cancelled, and in the margin is substituted ‘vidua,’ with the subscription: Cassatum et correctum ut supra, P.
  • 10. It is impossible to say exactly how the scribe has written this word.
  • 11. Volumus autem quod idem antistesformam juramenti quod ipse Dermicius Odwffay prestabit nobis de verbo ad verbum per ipsius antistetis [sic] patentes litteras suo sigillo sigillatas [rectius signatas] quamtocius destinare procuret.
  • 12. innovamus et presentis scripti patrocinio communimus.
