Kal. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 270.)
To Master John de Dulmen, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate to collate and assign, as below, the canonry and prebend of St. Martin's altar in Beverley, value 150 marks. The petition of Anthony de Sancto Quintino, rector of Sterinton, in the diocese of York, bachelor of canon law, contained that a cause arose lately between him and the late Richard Ravenser, clerk, about the said canonry and prebend, from which Alexander bishop of St. Andrews, then archbishop of York, removed Richard as having no just title and as being contumacious when cited by the archbishop to prove the same. Upon Anthony's obtaining them by authority of the archbishop, Richard opposed, declaring that he formerly exchanged his canonry and prebend of Lincoln with the late Roger de Nassington for the said canonry and prebend of Beverley, the resignations being made to John, archbishop of York, who, having special power from John, bishop of Lincoln, made due provision of both, and that Anthony afterwards despoiled him and intruded himself. The cause, lawfully introduced into the apostolic see, was committed by Urban VI. at Richard's instance to Bertrand, bishop of Gubbio, then papal chaplain and auditor, who made restitution to Richard, Anthony's appeal from which the same pope committed to Master Anthony de Sulmona, papal chaplain and auditor, who gave successive sentences, by one of which he confirmed the sentence of Bertrand, and by the other adjudged the canonry and prebend to Anthony. The appeals from both of these sentences the same pope committed to John, bishop of Hereford, then papal chaplain and auditor, before whom the cause was going on when Richard died. By mandate of the same pope, the bishop of Bath surrogated in Richard's place Thomas de Feryby, canon of Wells, on whose behalf it was set forth to the pope that, according to the assertions of some, the right to the canonry and prebend belonged neither to Anthony nor to Thomas. After further sentences by the said auditor John, and further appeals, the same pope committed the cause to Master Peter Gasconis, papal chaplain and auditor, Anthony's appeal from whose sentence was committed by the pope to Master Peter de Florentia, papal chaplain and auditor, who confirmed the sentence of Peter Gasconis. Anthony's further appeal was committed by the pope to the late Master Peter de Coppa papal chaplain and auditor, who revoked the said sentence, from which revocation Thomas appealed, which appeal was committed by the same pope to the above-named John de Dulmen, after which Urban VI. died. As the present pope has heard of the assertion that the canonry and prebend belong to neither Anthony—who is by both his parents of knightly race—nor Thomas, he orders the auditor, if he find this to be the case, to collate and assign them to whichever of the two he find, after examination, to be fit and sufficient; notwithstanding that Anthony holds the above church of Sterinton, value 100 marks, and is litigating in the apostolic palace about the canonry and prebend of Gowhtnaubalt (South Newbald) in York, value 50 marks, of which he has not possession, and has expectation, under a provision lately granted him by the present pope, of a benefice with or without cure in the common or several gift of the bishop, prior, and chapter of Durham, as well as provisions of canonries, also lately granted, with expectations of prebends and dignities, personatus, or offices, with or without cure, in York and Lincoln.
