To Emundus Okayll, a canon of Emly (Imilacen.). Mandate, as below. The pope has learned that a canonry of Emly and the prebend of Latyn therein have been so long void that their collation has lapsed to the apostolic see, although Emundus Ohedyan, clerk, of the diocese of Emly, who is illegitimate, being the son of the bishop of Emly and an unmarried woman, has, without any dispensation on account of the said defect for the purpose, and especially to hold a benefice in the church of which his father is bishop, (fn. 2) has detained them for about twelve years, under pretext of an invalid collation of them made to him by the said bishop his father. The pope, therefore, hereby orders the above canon to collate and assign the said canonry and prebend, value 5 marks sterling, to David de Burgo, scholar, of the diocese of Cashel, who is illegitimate, being the son of a canon regular and an unmarried woman, after he has been made a clerk, summoning and removing the said Emundus. The pope hereby dispenses him to be made a clerk and be promoted to all, even holy orders, and receive and retain the said canonry and prebend, notwithstanding the said defect, etc. Dignum etc. (At the end: A. xxvi. Undecimo Kal. Aprilis anno quarto. de Petra.) [3 pp.]

The pope hereby dispenses him to receive and retain it, and to be promoted to all, even holy and priest's orders, notwithstanding the said defect, etc. Dignum etc. (At the end: Jo. xxii.

Collation and provision to him (who holds inter alia the perpetual vicarage of St. Mary Magdalen's, alias Kyllnohoroc, in the diocese of Limerick), of the above-named perpetual vicarage of Kylluffyn, value 5 marks sterling, void at the apostolic see, and therefore reserved to the pope, by the resignation to him of Donatus Maciagh, (fn. 4) made by John Roche, clerk, of the diocese of Cloyne (Clonen.), proctor substituted by the above Demitrius [sic] Ohynrathy, who had been appointed by the said Donatus for the purpose. The pope hereby dispenses him to retain for life with the said vicarage of St. Mary Magdalen's that of Killufyn, (fn. 5) and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases. Vite etc.
