To Matthew Ogriffa, a canon of Limerick. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Maurice Ocamayn, priest, of the diocese of Limerick, contained that provision was formerly made to him by authority of the ordinary of the perpetual vicarage of Cloynellty in the said diocese on its voidance in a certain way [not here expressed], and that in virtue thereof he obtained possession, but that (after he had held it for some time in peace, upon Dermit Okahill, priest, of the diocese of Ardfert, falsely informing the present pope that it had become void because the late Thomas Omulcorcra, having obtained it on its voidance in a certain way [not here expressed], had held it for more than a year without having himself ordained priest and without dispensation, although the above Maurice had unlawfully detained possession of it for about a year without any canonical title or other title of right) the pope ordered the bishop of Emly and two others [not here named], seeing that, as Dermit falsely alleged, from fear of the power of Maurice he could not safely meet him in the city and diocese of Limerick, to summon Maurice and others concerned, and if they found the foregoing to be true, to collate and assign the vicarage to Dermit; and that under pretext of the said mandate Dermit brought Maurice before William bishop of Emly, by whom an unjust definitive sentence was promulgated against Maurice, who appealed therefrom to the apostolic see and obtained letters of the pope to the above-named canon and two others [not here named]. At the said petition, which added that it is alleged that neither Maurice nor Dermit has any right in or to the vicarage, the pope hereby orders the above canon to summon Dermit and others concerned, and, after the said appeal cause has been lawfully introduced before him, and if he find by the result of the suit that neither Maurice nor Dermit has any such right, to collate and assign the vicarage, value not exceeding 6 marks sterling, to Maurice, whether it be void as above, or by the death of William Hamand, or in any other way. Vite etc. (P. and H. Masheim. | P. xx. Tertio Non. Julii Anno Quarto, de Varris.) [32/3 pp. See above, p. 317.]
