De Dignitatibus Vacantibus.

1390.
14 Kal. April.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 106d.)
To Malachy Ohymayr, clerk, of the diocese of Killaloe, B.M. Reservation to him,—who has had dispensation on account of illegitimacy to be ordained and hold a benefice with cure,—of the archdeaconry of Kilfenora with cure, not elective, value 12 marks, about to become void by the provision recently made by the pope to Patrick, elect of Kilfenora, and his impending consecration; notwithstanding that he has recently had from the present pope provision of the precentorship of Killaloe, which is to be resigned, and of a canonry of Limerick, with expectation of a prebend.
Concurrent mandate to the bishop of Kilfenora, the abbot of Clare (de Forgio), in the diocese of Killaloe, and Maurice Omurgyssa, canon of Kilfenora. (Pro Deo.)

De Exhibitis.

7 Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 124.)
To Master Anthony de Ponto, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate to surrogate William de Kentusdene, alias Osbarne, priest, of the diocese of Lichfield, to the late John Lichfield. His recent petition contained that a cause arose lately between Lichfield and John Kedwelly, priest, of the diocese of Llandaff, about the perpetual vicarage of Herlingham, in the diocese of Worcester, void by the death of Walter de Yere. Lichfield accepted the same under papal letters of provision; Kedwelly opposed, and prevented Lichfield's peaceable possession, declaring that he formerly obtained the same, on its voidance in a certain way, held it for some time, and now also holds it, and that Lichfield unjustly opposed his obtaining it and despoiled him. The cause lawfully introduced into the apostolic see, was committed by Urban VI. at Kedwelly's instance to Master Nicholas de Vivianis, papal chaplain and auditor, who made restitution to Kedwelly, Lichfield's appeal from whose sentence the same pope committed to the late Peter de Coppa, papal chaplain and auditor, who proceeded in the cause after Urban's death, Kedwelly having previously resigned his right. Lichfield having died at the apostolic see while the cause was before the said auditor, the above William is to be surrogated in his right. The vicarage itself, whether void by the death of Lichfield, or the resignation of Kedwelly, or otherwise, is moreover to be collated and assigned to William.

Extension of dispensations on account of illegitimacy—(i) to be ordained and hold a benefice with cure, after which he obtained the church of Asschestode, in the diocese of Winchester (ii) to exchange the same, which he did for Grafton Fleford—so that he may hold two other benefices compatible therewith and with one another, even canonries and prebends in cathedral churches, and exchange them as often as he please for similar or dissimilar mutually compatible benefices. His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces.
1389.

(f. 140.)
To John Mauduyt, rector of Bradsted, in the diocese of Canterbury.

His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces.
15 Kal. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 144d.)
To Thomas de Ravenser, rector of Pasnam, in the diocese of Lincoln, bachelor of canon and civil law. Extension to him, who is kinsman of John, bishop of Salisbury, of dispensation on account of illegitimacy—to be ordained and hold a benefice with cure, after which he obtained the said church—so that he may hold two other benefices compatible therewith, even if one be a dignity with cure, or a canonry and prebend in a cathedral or metropolitan church, and may exchange the same as often as he please for similar or dissimilar mutually compatible benefices. His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces.
12 Kal. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 145.)
To John Offewelle, priest, of the diocese of Exeter. Extension of dispensation on account of illegitimacy to be ordained and hold a benefice with cure, so that he may hold two mutually compatible benefices, even if one be a dignity and the other a canonry and prebend in a cathedral church, and exchange them as often as he please for similar or dissimilar mutually compatible benefices.

14 Kal. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 148d.)

To the dean of London. Mandate to collate and assign to Nicholas Stone, if found fit after examination, the canonry and prebend of WestSanford, in St. Cross, Credition, value 20 marks, which he obtained by exchange with Master Thomas de Walkington, papal chaplain and auditor, in place of his canonry and residential prebend of the royal chapel of St. Martin's le Grand, London, resigned by him in the time of Urban VI. into the hands of Richard Medforde, dean of the said chapel, who received the resignations, by virtue of his ordinary authority and of special power from Thomas, bishop of Exeter, and carried out the exchange. The collation made to Nicholas of the canonry and prebend of Credition does not hold good, and they are still void, Urban VI. having reserved to himself all canonries and prebends and other benefices of papal chaplains on their voidance, and the said canonry and prebend not having been disposed of by that pope before his death, and having therefore been reserved to the present pope in accordance with his declaration, upon his accession, respecting such undisposed of benefices.

His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces.
