Prid. Kal. Feb.

St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 232d.)
To Donald Okearwill, a canon of Cork. Mandate, at the recent petition of Maurice Yhelayd, clerk, of the diocese of Cloyne (Clonen.), containing that a canonry of Cloyne and the prebend of Domnachmor therein being void by the resignation of Thomas Yhelayd to Jordan bishop of Cloyne, and admitted by that bishop by his ordinary authority, and having been void so long that by the Lateran statutes their collation had lapsed to the apostolic see, the said bishop, after the time of such lapse, made collation and provision of them, void as above, to the said Maurice, (fn. 5) who in virtue thereof obtained them, and has held possession for about three years, taking the fruits in good faith, but now doubts whether the said collation and provision hold good. The canonry and prebend being therefore still void as above, the pope hereby orders the above canon to collate and assign them, value not exceeding 8 marks sterling, to Maurice.Exhibita siquidem nobis. (P. and G. Gonne. | P. xx.Undecimo Kal. Martii Anno Tertio. de Varris.) [22/3 pp.]
3 Kal. Jan.
(30 Dec.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 298d.)
To the dean of Killaloe (Laonien.). Mandate as below. The recent petition of Donatus Ygrada, clerk, of the diocese of Killaloe, contained that after Martin V's renewal of all sentences etc. promulgated by his predecessors against simoniacs, and his reservation of absolution therefrom to himself and his successors, Donatus's father made a bargain with Rory (Ruodrico) Ograda, then a canon of Killaloe, to the effect that if Rory would resign his canonry and prebend of Killaloe in favour of Donatus, he (Donatus's father) would give him a sum of money yearly; that afterwards, in the course of the said bargain, of which Donatus was aware, (fn. 6) Calixtus III, upon learning that Rory proposed to resign the said canonry and prebend, ordered the official of Clonfert to receive and admit his resignation, and thereupon to collate and assign them to Donatus. Subsequently, as the said petition added, Thomas Ocormacayn, official of Clonfert, perhaps unaware of the said bargain, received and admitted the resignation, and made collation and provision to Donatus, who had obtained no dispensation from the said sentences etc., and who in force thereof obtained and is still in possession, paying the said sum of money yearly, and taking the fruits. The collation and provision being therefore without force, and the canonry and prebend being therefore still void as above, the pope hereby orders the above dean to absolve Donatus, who is of noble birth, from the said simony and sentences etc., enjoining penance, dispense him on account of any irregularity incurred, and rehabilitate him, and to decree and declare that he is not bound to pay the said sum of money, etc., and moreover, in the event of his so absolving etc., to collate and assign the canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 15 marks sterling, to Donatus, if found fit. Before the dean proceeds to execution, Donatus is to resign. Solet apostolice sedis. (P. and A. de Cortesiis. | P. xxx. Quinto Id. Martii Anno Tertio. de Varris.) [62/3 pp.]
