To Thomas Forsicht [sic], clerk, of the diocese of Aberdeen. Reservation etc., as below. His recent petition contained that on the voidance by the death of Andrew Murhed extra curiam Romanam of the parish church of Kyrkpatrik juxta in the diocese of Glasgow, (fn. 3) he got collation and provision made to him thereof by papal authority, and in virtue thereof obtained possession, and that the cause which arose about the said church between him and William Lindesay, rector of the same, was, at the said William's instance, committed by the present pope, although it had not lawfully devolved to the said court, to Master John de Ceretanis, a papal chaplain and auditor, who promulgated a definitive sentence in favour of William and against Thomas, the latter of whom appealed therefrom to the apostolic see; that the pope at Thomas's instance committed the appeal to John, bishop of Calahorra (Calaguritan.), then holding the place of an auditor, who by his definitive sentence confirmed that of auditor John; that Thomas's appeal therefrom was committed by the pope to Master Gaspar de Theramo, an auditor, and that, after he had proceeded short of a conclusion, he, with consent of Thomas and William, confirmed by his definitive sentence the aforesaid two sentences, in which last sentence Thomas has acquiesced. The pope therefore reserves and assigns to him a yearly life pension of 10 marks of the usual money of Scotland, which do not exceed 3l. sterling, on the fruits etc. of the said church, the value of which does not exceed 9l. sterling, to be paid in the city of Glasgow by the said William, who has consented, and by his successors, rectors of the said church, half at Christmas, and half at the Nativity of St. John Baptist; with the usual sanctions for nonpayment. Vite etc.

(f. 15d.)
To the abbot of Wardon in the diocese of Lincoln. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of the inhabitants of the town (ville) of Vennistratforth and of the village (vi[l]lagii) of Cotmanend, in the diocese of Lincoln, contained that the said town and village are about an English mile distant, by a bad and very muddy road, from their parish church of Blecheley, whereby it often happens that for lack of the administration of sacraments and sacramentals the children in the said town of Vennistratforth, which is much larger than the said town of Blecheley, and those in the said village, die without the sacrament of baptism, and that the carrying of the bodies of those who die (descendunt, recte decedunt) in the said town and village to the said church is very hurtful to the said inhabitants, not only on account of the danger of the said muddy road, but also because, when they leave the said town or village, and betake themselves to the said church, for the purpose of receiving the said sacraments or burying the said bodies, they are despoiled of their goods by robbers, and suffer other inconveniences. The pope therefore orders the above abbot to summon the rector of the said church and others concerned, and if he find the facts to be as stated, to grant licence to the said inhabitants to have the chapel of St. Margaret (which at their own expense, and with the licence of the bishop of Lincoln and the rector of the said church they have founded in the said town of Vennistratforth, and in which a chaplain at their expense or with their alms daily celebrates mass and the canonical hours) consecrated by any catholic bishop in communion with the apostolic see, have there a font and a cemetery made, and have the latter blessed; to grant licence for the said inhabitants, and for the inhabitants for the time being, to receive from the chaplain of the said chapel any sacraments and sacramentals which they could have received from the rector of the said church; and to grant them licence to bury the dead of the said town and village in the said cemetery thus made and blessed, without requiring the licence of the said rector or any other. Piis supplicum votis. (P. and A. de Cortesiis. | P. xxxx. de Varris.) [3½ pp.]

To Thomas Hasty, priest, of the diocese of Glasgow. Reservation and assignment, at his recent petition, containing that in order to avoid litigation between him and William Blar, rector of the parish church of Lynton in the diocese of Glasgow, about the said church (to which, on its becoming void in a certain way, he was presented by the lay patron to Andrew, bishop of Glasgow), he has resigned to the said bishop all right arising to him from the said presentation, and has allowed the said William to have possession of the said church, of a yearly life pension of a third part of the fruits etc. of the said church, to be paid in the city of Glasgow by the said William, who has consented, and his successors, rectors of the said church, half at Christmas, and half at the Nativity of St. John Baptist; with the usual sanctions for non-payment. Vite etc.

(f. 98.)
To Gilbert de Rerik, archdeacon of Glasgow. Grant, as below. The pope has this day ordered, motu proprio, provision to be made to him of one or two benefices wont to be assigned to secular clerks, even if such one or one of such two have cure, or be a rural deanery or archpriestship, or a dignity etc., in the common or several gift of the provost and chapter etc. of Lyncluden and the minister and convent of the Trinitarian house of Falfarde, (fn. 4) in the diocese of Glasgow, the which letters the pope has willed to hold good as if granted under date Kal. April anno 1 (1 April, 1465). He therefore, also motu proprio, grants to the said Gilbert, who is well-beloved of the bishop of Glasgow, that he may enjoy all the privileges of priority etc. which are enjoyed by certain continual members of the pope's household inscribed by order of the pope in a certain book of the apostolic chancery, as if he himself were one of them.

To Thomas Haya, canon of Aberdeen. Grant, as below. Upon its being set forth to the pope on the said Thomas's behalf that on a canonry of Aberdeen and the prebend of Cruden therein becoming void by the resignation of Thomas Waus to Thomas, bishop of Aberdeen, that bishop made by his ordinary authority collation and provision thereof to the said Thomas Haya, and that he doubted whether for certain reasons the said collation and provision held good, the pope ordered collation and provision to be made to him of the same. His recent petition contained that in virtue thereof he obtained the said canonry and prebend, and that, upon a cause arising about them between him and William Lyndesay, priest, the pope, at the said William's instance, committed it, although it had not lawfully devolved to the Roman court, to the late Bernard Rouira, a papal chaplain and auditor, and upon the latter's death, to Master Anthony de Grassis, also a papal chaplain and auditor, who is said to have proceeded short of a conclusion. The said petition added that, whilst the cause has been pending before the said auditor, the said William (to whom the pope lately ordered provision to be made of the priory de Rosano, O.S.A., in the diocese of St. Andrews) has assumed the habit of the canons of the said order, and made his profession. The pope therefore grants to Thomas that the said former letters, and the said collation, provision and obtaining possession in virtue thereof, etc., shall hold good from the date of these presents, even if the said canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 18l. sterling, be void as above, or by the assuming of the said habit, or the making of the said profession, or by the resignation of the said Thomas, or of James Lindisny [sic], or in any other way, etc. Vite etc. (F. and P. de Godis. | F. xxiiii.

Footnotes

  • 1. On the back of the volume is the usual modern description in Latin: 1478. An. 7. Sixtus 4, which has been corrected in pencil to ‘1471.An. vii. Paulus ii.,’ beneath which is the repeated description: Paulus ii.An. 1470 et 1471. An. vii. On a contemporary end-paper is Mgr. Wenzel's ‘An. 7. to. 8,’ and an older and erroneous description: 1475.Anno vii. Sextus iv. There are ff. ii.–ccxxiii. of text, f. i. having been almost entirely torn out. On the back of f. ccxxiiii., which is otherwise blank, is the note ‘Quisit(us) pro Cuistio’ (?). The contemporary description (apparently ‘Tercius de diversis anno vii. domini Pauli pape ii.’) occurs on the bottom edge of the volume, as usual, but is almost illegible. The volume has suffered throughout from water.
  • 2. As mentioned in the preceding note, f. i. is almost wholly torn out, and it is only the mention of the constitutions of Otto and Ottobon, sometime legates in England, on the portion of the dispensation which survives on f. ii., which shows that the church of St. Mary is in that country.
  • 3. parrochiali ecclesia de Kyrk patrik iuxta Glasguen. dioc., ‘iuxta’ having been apparently added in the margin.
  • 4. or Falfurde or Fulfurde, etc. Ill-written.
  • 5. decanatus vel archipresbyteratus ruralis, but ‘ruralis’ is cancelled and over-written ‘N. [Garilliati].’
