7 Boniface IX.

De Exhibitis.

7 Kal. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 44.)
To the archbishop of Tuam. Mandate to collate and assign the archdeaconry of Kilmacduagh, value 8 marks, and to induct therein Maurice (Mauricius inserted, and countersigned in margin by N. De Ben[even]to, in place of Mauricus Magil, cancelled in the text) Macgillavanach, canon of Kilmacduagh, whose petition contained that although papal provision was made to Laurence Odonchaga, clerk, of Kilmacduagh, of the said archdeaconry, void by the promotion and consecration by papal authority of John to be bishop of Clonfert, and previously reserved to the pope, nevertheless Gilbert Olean, canon of Kilmacduagh, asserting that the archdeaconry belonged to him, hindered the provision from taking effect; Laurence thereupon had the cause tried by papal delegation before Gregory, bishop of Kilmacduagh, who received their resignation of all right to the archdeaconry, and made provision of it to Maurice, who took possession. As Maurice doubts whether this collation and provision holds good, and as the pope has learned that the archdeaconry is hitherto void, the present mandate is issued, regard being had to the constitution Execrabilis of John XXII, etc. and notwithstanding that Maurice has a canonry and prebend of the said church, value 2 marks.
16 Kal. April.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 95.)
To the bishop of Kildare, the abbot of Novan (Navan), in the diocese of Meath, and Richard Yong, canon of Lincoln. Mandate to collate and assign to John Okearwill, priest, of the diocese of Meath, the church of Killalon, in the same diocese, value 50 marks, provision of which he received from the bishop in the life-time of Urban VI. on the death of the rector, Peter Weldon, by letters of that pope reserving to him, under the form for poor clerks, a benefice with or without cure in the gift of the bishop of Meath, but doubts whether the said provision for certain causes holds good. (Pro Deo.)
2 Kal. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 180.)
To John Atwalle, rector of the free chapel of Ingestre, in the diocese of Lichfield. Extension of dispensation on account of illegitimacy to be ordained and hold a benefice with cure, after which he became priest and obtained the above chapel, so that he may hold two other benefices compatible therewith, even canonries and prebends in metropolitan or cathedral churches, and may resign all three as often as he will, simply or for exchange, and receive in their place similar or dissimilar benefices compatible with one another. His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces.
