Prid. Id. May.
(14 May.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 275r.)
To Thady Ohurayn, a canon of Ardfert, residing in the diocese of Cloyne (Clonen.). Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Philip Ymurvhu, priest, of the diocese of Cloyne, contained that (after he had been dispensed by papal authority on account of illegitimacy, as the son of a priest and a married woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure, and subsequently, after he had been made a clerk, to hold with such benefice one other compatible benefice, and resign them, for exchange or otherwise, once only, and hold instead two other benefices compatible with one another), collation and provision were made to him de facto by the then bishop of Cloyne of the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Dromor in the said diocese, which had been void so long that its collation had lapsed to the apostolic see, in virtue of which he obtained possession, and has detained it for between three and five years, taking the fruits, also de facto, whereby he has incurred disability. The said collation and provision being therefore without force, and the said vicarage still void as above, and the perpetual vicarage of the parish church of Brekny in the said diocese being also void, and having been so long void that its collation has lapsed to the said see, although Donald Makcladean (?), (fn. 5) priest, has detained it for between twenty and twenty-five years without any title or right, the pope hereby rehabilitates the said Philip, and orders the above canon to collate and assign to him the said vicarage of Dromor, and also that of Brekyn, value not exceeding 7 and 4 marks sterling, respectively, summoning and removing the said Donald. The pope further dispenses him to receive and retain the said vicarages for life, and, without one or both of them, any one or two other benefices with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if parish churches etc., or dignities etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases. Before the said canon proceeds to execution of these presents, the said Philip is to resign to him the said vicarage of Dromor. Sedes apostolica pia mater. (At the end: P. xxxii. Decimo octavo Kal. Julii anno sexto. de Varris.) [32/3 pp.]

(f. 316v.)
To the prior of Ballinskelligs (sancti Michaelis de Rupe) in the diocese of Ardfert. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of David Yhurayn, priest, of the diocese of Ardfert, bachelor of decrees, contained that on the voidance of the rectory of the parish church of Kylnanama, or a parcel of it called a parcel in ecclesiastical fee, (fn. 6) [in the said diocese], by the resignation of Thady Yhurayn to John bishop of Ardfert, the said bishop made collation and provision thereof by his ordinary authority to the said David, who in virtue thereof obtained possession, and has held possession for more than a year, without having himself ordained priest; and that on the voidance in a certain way extraR.c. of the rectory of Nohaval of Akymys (fn. 7) in the said diocese, of lay patronage, the said bishop, with consent of the chapter of Ardfert and of James earl of Desmond, (fn. 8) layman, patron of the said rectory, (fn. 9) united etc. the said two rectories for the lifetime of the said David, who took de facto possession of the said latter rectory, (fn. 10) and still detains the said two rectories without any new right or title, taking the fruits, also de facto. The said rectory of Kynanama being therefore void by the said non-promotion, and that of Nohaval (fn. 11) being still void, and the said union etc. being without force, the pope, at the petition of the said David, (which added that if the said rectories were united for his lifetime, and provision thereof made him, he could maintain himself), hereby absolves him, who alleges that the yearly values of the said rectory of Kylnanama and Nohaval (fn. 12) do not exceed 2 and 20 marks sterling, respectively, from any sentences of excommunication etc., and rehabilitates him, and orders the above prior to summon those concerned, and unite etc. the said rectories for the lifetime of the said David, and thereupon to collate and assign them to him. The pope further dispenses him to receive and retain with them for life any other benefice, and without them any two [other] benefices, with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if dignities etc., or parish churches etc., and to resign them, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleases. Before the said prior proceeds to the execution of these presents the said David is to resign to him the said rectories. Sedis apostolice copiosa benignitas. (At the end: A. xxxii. Quintodecimo Kal. Julii anno sexto. de Petra.) [3 pp.]
