6 Paul II.

De Prebendis Vacantibus.

1469.
Prid. Id. Dec.
(12 Dec.)
St. [Peter's], Rome. (fn. 2).
(f. 203d.)
To the abbot of St. Mary's, Macosquin (de Claro fonte), in the diocese of Derry (Deren.), and Donald Oqweruollan and Cornelius Oqweruollan, canons of Derry. Mandate, as below. The pope has been informed by Eugenius Macmemnan (fn. 3) alias Odomhuaill, clerk, of the diocese of Raphoe, that Catholicus Okaan alias Olaste (or Olasce), a canon of Raphoe, has committed simony and perjury, and has dilapidated the goods of his canonry of Raphoe and the prebend of Tulach Forngna therein. He therefore hereby orders the above three, if the said Eugenius (who notwithstanding his illegitimacy, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, both nobles and related in the fourth degree of kindred, has been made a clerk, and who from fear of the power of the said Catholicus cannot safely meet him within the city or diocese of Raphoe) will accuse the said Catholicus before them, to summon Catholicus and others concerned, and if they find the foregoing to be true, to deprive Catholicus, and in that event to collate and assign the said canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 6 marks sterling, to Eugenius; removing Catholicus and any other unlawful detainer. The pope hereby specially dispenses Eugenius to be promoted to all, even holy and priest's (fn. 4) orders, and receive and retain the said canonry and prebend. Vite etc. (P. and A. de Cortesiis. | P. xviii. Quarto Decimo Kal. Februarii Anno Sexto. de Varris.) [3 pp.]
1469[–70].
Prid. Id. Feb.
(12 Feb.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 204d.)
To the abbot of St. Mary's, Knockmoy (Collis victorie), in the diocese of Tuam, and Donatus Oleannayn and Thomas Omallayn, canons of Tuam. Mandate, as below. The pope has learned that a canonry of Kilmacduagh (Duacen.) and the prebend called Termundhytuanayd alias Kyllcorrnayn therein became and are void by the death of Donald Magyllananath without the Roman court, although Maurice Magyllananath, clerk, of the diocese of Kilmacduagh, under pretext of a collation and provision made to him by authority of the ordinary, when under sentence of the greater excommunication and publicly proclaimed excommunicate, has without any other title or tittle of right unlawfully detained possession for between two and three years. The pope, therefore, hereby orders the above three to summon the said Maurice and others concerned, and to collate and assign to William Olachnayn, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Meagrid in the diocese of Annadown, the value of which does not exceed 7 marks of silver, the said canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 2 marks sterling, removing the said Maurice and any other unlawful detainer. Vite etc. (P. and N. de Castello. N. x. Residuum gratis pro deo. Tertio Kal. Martii Anno Sexto. de Varris.) [32/3 pp.]
1469.
14 Kal. Dec.
(18 Nov.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 230d.)
To the official of Raphoe. Mandate, as below. The pope has been informed by Donatus Odochartaich, canon of Derry (Deren.), that Bernard Odomphnaill alias Meameamnan (? recte Mecmeamnan, i.e. Macmeamnan), rector of the parish church of Theachbiuthin in the diocese of Raphoe, is an open and notorious fornicator and has dilapidated and converted to his evil uses the goods of the said church, and is defamed of several other excesses and crimes, and also of not residing in nor serving the said church. The recent petition, moreover, of the said Donatus contained that if the said church were erected into a prebend of Raphoe it would be to the increase of divine worship therein. The pope therefore orders the above official, if the said Donatus (who is a priest, and has been received by authority of the ordinary as a canon of Derry) will accuse the said Bernard before the said official, to summon Bernard and the chapter of Raphoe and others concerned, and if he find the foregoing to be true, to deprive and remove Bernard, and in that event to erect, in accordance with the petition of the said Donatus, the said church, value not exceeding 11 marks sterling, into a prebend of Raphoe for his lifetime only, and to collate and assign to him a canonry of that church and such prebend. The pope's will is that the cure of souls in the said church, which is exercised by a perpetual vicar, shall not be neglected, and that on the death or resignation of Donatus the said church shall return to its former condition. Vite etc. (Hug. and A. de Cortesiis. | Hug. xx. Expedita Idibus Januarii Anno Sexto.Prothon. Bisuntin.) [3⅓ pp.]

Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual contemporary description in Italian: Paolo ii. 1469. Anno 6. Lib. 1. A modern end-paper has Mgr. Wenzel's ‘An. 6. to. 17.’ There is no contemporary end-paper with the contemporary description, but the latter occurs in part at the top of f. i., viz.: De Exhibitis [anno] vio domini nostri domini Pauli pape ii., and the rest at the top of f. 153 [A], viz.: Sequitur de prebendis vacantibus [anno] vio . The full contemporary description occurs in full, as usual, on the bottom edge of the volume, viz.: Primus de Exhibitis et prebendis vacantibus anno vio domini nostri domini Pauli pape ii. There are nominally ff. i.–ccxxxv. + [ccxxxvi.] of text, but in reality about 100 more, many of the leaves having been skipped in the foliation.
