To the archdeacon, the treasurer and the official of Waterford. Mandate—it being alleged by William Wynchidwn, canon of Lismore, that although the priory of St. Catherine, O.S.A., in the diocese of Waterford, became void at the apostolic see, and therefore reserved by Paul II's promotion of Thady to be bishop of Connor and Down, and by his consecration at the said see, the said bishop detained it without any right for between six and seven years after his consecration, (alleging it to have been united by papal authority to the episcopal mense of Connor and Down), but has been deprived of it by a definitive sentence of the ordinary—to cause William, who is of a knightly race of earls and barons, to be received as a canon of the said priory, give him the habit and receive his profession, summon the said bishop, and collate and assign the priory, conventual and independent, and value 60 marks sterling, to William, who is to resign his canonry and prebend of Lismore.
