To the archbishops of Dublin and Colossi (fn. 2) (Colocen.), and the archdeacon of Richmond in York. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Marmaduke Lomellai, a brother of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem, contained that the Hospitaller's priory of Ireland (fn. 3) having become void by the deprivation of James Keting made by the master and convent, they have granted it for ten years to the said Marmaduke under a yearly payment. The pope, therefore, hereby orders the above three to induct him into possession of the said priory, removing the said James. He also exemplifies the letters Digne credimus agere of brother Peter de Daubusson, master, and the convent of the Hospital, addressed to brother Marmaduke Lomelay, a knight of the priory of England, and dated at Rhodes on 20 Dec. 1482.

  • 1. quicquidfactum est in tua absentia et post tuum a regno (? recte ad regnum) Scotie recessum.
  • 2. In the island of Rhodes; rather than Kalocsa-Bacs, in Hungary, both of them metropolitan sees.
  • 3. Ibernie sive Irlande. This appears to be the first occurrence in the papal registers of the modern form of the name, having been adopted in the pope's bull from the letters of the master and convent exemplified therein.
