To the bishop of Emly (Imblacen.), Maurice Ocrunvylle, canon of Kildare (Daren.) and Eugenius Macconkagry, canon of Ardagh (Ar[da]kaden.). Mandate, as below. The pope has learned that John Okahill, sometime dean of Emly, has resigned that deanery in presence of William Oduurta, priest, of the said [sic] diocese [of Emly], public notary by papal authority, and witnesses, and also that the perpetual vicarages of the parish churches Dotrehaclogin (recte de Tuhaclogin) et Dowllim (fn. 2) in the said [sic] diocese have been so long void that there is no certain knowledge of their last modes of voidance, and that by the Lateran statutes their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see; and the recent petition of William Meclirien, (fn. 2) clerk, of the said [sic] diocese, contained that the fruits etc. of the said deanery, a major elective dignity with cure, are so slight that its holder cannot suitably keep hospitality etc., wherefore several deans have held for life the said vicarages by union or dispensation, as did the said John Okahill. At the petition, therefore, of the said William (who alleges that he has come in person from Ireland to the Roman court, not without very great trials, perils and expense, containing that the values of the said deanery and the said vicarages de Trihaclogin and de Vllw do not exceed 6, 1 and 4 marks sterling respectively, and that he was lately dispensed by papal authority on account of illegitimacy, as the son of unmarried parents, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, after which he had himself made a clerk), the pope hereby orders the above three to summon those concerned, and if they find the facts to be as stated, to unite the said vicarages for William's lifetime to the said deanery, and in that event, and if he find the said resignation lawful, to admit it by papal authority, and thereupon to collate and assign the said deanery and vicarages to William. The pope hereby specially dispenses him to receive and retain them, notwithstanding the said defect, etc., and wills that on his resignation or death such union shall be dissolved.Ex iniuncte nobis.

To the prior of Dearg in the diocese of Ardagh (Ardakaden.), and John Offergayll and Eugenius Macconkagry, canons of Ardagh. Mandate, as below. The pope has been informed by Maurice Occrumylle, perpetual vicar of the parish church of St. Bridget, Baleycomayn alias Rathtruman, in the diocese of Kildare (Daren.), that Rory Ogussan, rector of the parish church of St. Mary, Culcorra, in the same diocese, of lay patronage, made an agreement with Calvarius Oconeubyr (recte Oconcubyr), layman, its patron, that if the latter presented him to the ordinary, Rory would allow the said patron (fn. 3) to take every year for life the tithe fruits, belonging to the said rectory, of the place of Culcorro in the said diocese, as a result of which the said patron (fn. 3) presented Rory to William, bishop of Kildare, who, perhaps in ignorance of the said agreement, instituted Rory, under pretext of which presentation and institution he obtained possession and has detained it for between sixteen and seventeen years, allowing the said patron meanwhile to take the said fruits. At the petition of the said Maurice, containing that if the perpetual vicarage of the said church of St. Bridget, which is also of lay patronage, and whose value does not exceed 4 marks sterling, were united in perpetuity to the canonry of Kildare which he holds without a prebend, he would resign the said vicarage in aid of the said union, the which would be to the adornment of the said church of Kildare, (fn. 4) the pope hereby orders the above three to summon those concerned, and if they find the facts to be as stated, to receive from the said Maurice (who was lately dispensed by papal authority on account of illegitimacy, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and receive and retain a benefice with or without cure, after which he was so promoted and obtained by canonical collation the said vicarage, and who for fear of Rory's power cannot safely meet him in the city or diocese of Kildare) his resignation of the said vicarage, and to unite it, provided that the patron's express assent be given, to the said canonry in perpetuity as its prebend, and moreover, if Maurice will accuse the said Rory before them, to summon Rory and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be true, to decree and declare the said presentation and institution null and void, and [deprive and] remove Rory, and, in the event of their making the said union and deprivation and removal, to collate and assign the said rectory, with cure, and value not exceeding 10 marks sterling, and the said vicarage (whether they be void as above, or the vicarage be void by the said resignation [of Maurice], or the rectory by the resignation of the said Rory, or of Thady Ymaednay, or because the said Thady, having obtained it by canonical collation, held it for more than a year without having himself ordained priest, and without dispensation, or whether they be void in any other way), to Maurice. The pope hereby specially dispenses him to receive and retain them for life, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases; notwithstanding the said defect, and the pope's late ordinance to the contrary, etc. Pastoralis officii.

The pope also dispenses him not to be bound for seven years to have himself promoted to any holy orders, except that of subdeacon, by reason of the said archdeaconry etc., whilst studying in a non-university place, according to the custom of Ireland, notwithstanding the said defect of age, etc. (fn. 5)Vite etc. (F. and A. de Cortesiis. | F. xxxvi.

To the archdeacon of Richmond in the church of York. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Simon Guyp, layman, and all the inhabitants of the valley of Langsleiddall, in the diocese of York, contained that inasmuch as the said valley is about five English miles distant from its parish church of Kyrkby Kendall in Helsyngton, in the said diocese, it happens at times that on account of floods, tempests, storms, droughts and various other inconveniences it is very dangerous and difficult to go from the said valley to the said church, so that it has sometimes happened that the sick and women in childbirth have died without the sacraments of penance and Eucharist, etc. (fn. 8) The said petition added that the said Simon has built a chapel on his own ground in the said valley, with licence of the ordinary and of the perpetual vicar of the said church, and has caused, and causes, masses to be celebrated therein by his own or a hired priest, and that if the said Simon and inhabitants could have their own chaplain in the said chapel, who could daily celebrate therein masses and other divine offices, hear their confessions and enjoin salutary penance, and could, in time of need and the said floods etc., and whenever it is not convenient to go to the said church, minister to them the sacraments of Eucharist and Extreme Unction, and could in a fit place in the said chapel keep (fn. 9) the sacrament of Eucharist, it would be for the good of the souls of the said inhabitants, and the said dangers would thereby be avoided. At the petition, therefore, of the said Simon and other inhabitants, who allege that the fruits etc. of the said vicarage are abundant, being worth about 100 marks sterling a year, the pope hereby orders the above archdeacon to summon the said vicar and others concerned, and if he find the foregoing to be true, and if the said ordinary consent, to grant to the said Simon and other inhabitants licence to have a priest as a perpetual chaplain in the said chapel, who may daily therein celebrate masses and other divine offices, hear their confessions, as often as opportune, and grant them absolution in cases permitted to him, and enjoin salutary penance, and, in time of need, as above, and when access to the said vicar is not convenient, administer to them the sacraments of Eucharist and Extreme Unction, and in a fit place in the said chapel keep (fn. 9) the sacrament of Eucharist; without prejudice to the said parish church.

Lately there issued letters of the present pope, ‘Ad perpetuam rei memoriam.Cum in omnibus iudiciis sit rectitudo iustitie et conscientie puritas observanda, etc.’ [printed in Cocquelines, Bullarium Romanum, Vol. III, part iii, Rome, 1743, p. 118, under date 1465, May 11]; and the recent petition of John, bishop of Worcester, contained that the late Thomas, bishop of that see, and after him another bishop Thomas (seeing that a number of lands, tenements, rents, reversions and services, situate in the town (fn. 10) of Theokmarton (sic) in the diocese of Worcester, and belonging to the episcopal mensa from its primeval foundation and endowment, and certain other lands, (fn. 11) rents, reversions and services belonging to the late John Theokmarton (sic), layman, of the said diocese, were so close together that between their respective villeins (fn. 12) disputes and riots (fn. 13) often arose), granted, to the manifest advantage of the said mensa, the said lands and tenements on lease or perpetual farm to the said John Theokmarton (sic), under the yearly cess of 12l. of the money of England (fn. 14) for which the said lands and tenements had been wont to be let, saving and reserving, however, to the said mensa and to the successors of the said bishops the neifs, (fn. 15) homages, services, wardships, marriages, escheats, suits and certain other rights, as is said to be more fully contained in certain public instruments. Subsequently, after the late bishop Thomas, the immediate predecessor of the said bishop John, had, with consent of the chapter, but without licence of the apostolic see, freely granted in perpetuity the above lands, tenements, rents, reversions and services to the same John Theokmarton (sic), for him and his heirs and successors, reserving little or no right, and after the said John and Thomas Theokmarton (sic) his son, layman, had under pretext of the said later grant held for some time the said lands, tenements, rents and other rights belonging to the said mensa, and many disputes etc. had arisen between the said bishop John and Thomas Theokmarton (sic) about the said lands, tenements, and other goods and rights, the said Thomas Theokmarton (sic), for the good of his soul and the soul of the said John his father, has resolved, if the aforesaid goods belonging to the said mensa be freely granted to him, for him and his heirs and successors, to give in exchange therefor to bishop John, on behalf of the said mensa, a number of other lands, tenements, rents, reversions and services belonging to him, of a yearly value of 12 of the above pounds. The said petition adding that the said exchange will be to the manifest advantage of the said mensa, the pope hereby, at the petition of the said bishop John and Thomas Theokmarton (sic), orders the above two abbots to summon the said chapter and others concerned, make inquiry, in accordance with the tenour of the pope's above-mentioned letters, and if they find that the said exchange will be to the manifest advantage of the said mensa, to grant to the said bishop John or his successor licence to make it.

The recent petition of Tiernanus Ytrebur, priest, of the diocese of Kilmore, contained that on the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Drumlias in the said diocese by the deprivation of Donatus Ocridagan, made for his faults and demerits by Tytheus, bishop of Kilmore, that bishop made collation and provision thereof to the said Tiernanus, who, according to custom, gave and assigned to the said bishop in good faith, in lieu of the first year fruits, certain animals or horses; and that afterwards, holding the said vicarage, and being an open fornicator, he, in ignorance of the law, and not in contempt of the Keys, celebrated masses and other divine offices. At the said petition, which added that Tiernanus fears lest he may have incurred simony and the sentences etc. promulgated therefor, and lest the said collation and provision be without force; and the said vicarage being, according to the foregoing, still void as above, the pope hereby orders the above three to absolve Tiernanus from the said simony and sentences, etc., suspending him for six months from his orders, and enjoining a salutary penance, etc., and to collate and assign to him the said vicarage, value not exceeding 4 marks sterling, but before they proceed to the execution of these presents he is to resign.Sedes apostolica, pia mater.
