3 Non. April.
(3 April.)
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 228v.)
To the dean of Chichester, the archdeacon of Lewys, and John Rebow, a canon of Chichester. Mandate etc., as below. Pius II dispensed Thomas Standerwike, professed of the house or monastery of SS. Mary and Catherine and All Saints, commonly called the house or monastery of Bonshommes, Edyngton, O.S.A., in the diocese of Salisbury, to hold for life, without requiring licence of his superior, any benefice with cure wont to be held by secular clerks, even if a parish church etc., and resign or exchange it [Cal. XI, p. 513]; and Paul II dispensed him to hold for life with the perpetual vicarage of Ikelsham, in the diocese of Chichester, any other benefice, or without it any two other benefices, with cure or otherwise incompatible, and to resign or exchange them, without any mention being made of the said dispensation by Pius II, or of the fact that in virtue thereof he had obtained collation of the said vicarage, and that he had made the said profession; wherefore the dispensation by pope Paul was null and void. His recent petition contained that he afterwards put off the habit of the said Order, thereby incurring sentences of excommunication and apostasy, resigned the said vicarage, and obtained the parish church of Amburley, in the said diocese of Chichester, by collation made by authority of the ordinary, on its voidance by the death of Heleys Hussy; that on the voidance of the parish church of Selsey, called a rectory, in the same diocese, by the resignation of Henry Rueber (fn. 1) to John Arundell, bishop of Chichester, that bishop made collation and provision thereof by his ordinary authority to Thomas, who under pretext thereof obtained possession, and held it with Amburley for about five years, without any other dispensation, against Execrabilis; and that, having resigned Amburley, he continues to detain possession of Selsey, without having acquired any fresh right. The said collations and provisions being, therefore, null and void, and the said dispensation by Paul II being without force, and Thomas having several times celebrated mass etc., when under the said sentence of excommunication, thereby contracting irregularity, the pope, at the petition of Thomas, who has resumed the habit, orders the above three to absolve him from excommunication, etc., and from apostasy, enjoining penance, dispense him on account of irregularity, and rehabilitate him, and to collate and assign to him the said church of Selsey, value 18l. sterling; the pope further granting that the said dispensation by Paul II shall hold good from the date of these presents, etc., notwithstanding the said omissions. Sedis apostolice. (In the margin: Apri.) [5 pp.]
