To John Park, priest, of the diocese of Hereford. Extension to him, student for four years of canon and civil law, of successive dispensations as the son of a deacon— (i) to be ordained and hold a benefice with cure, after which he held the perpetual vicarage of Homme Lacy, in the diocese of Hereford; (ii) to hold another benefice compatible therewith, and to exchange both once for similiar or dissimilar mutually compatible benefices, after which he resigned his vicarage and obtained the rectory of Withyndon in that of Worcester, about which he is litigating in the apostolic palace,—so that he may hold two other benefices, even if canonries and prebends, dignities, even if major or principal respectively, personatus, adminstrations, or perpetual officers, with or without cure even if elective, in metropolitan, cathedral or collegiate churches, and may exchange them as often as he will for similar or dissimilar mutually incompatible benefices, His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces.

To the bishops of Florence, Bangor, and St. Asaph. Consolidation and mandate as below, on the recent petition of Griffin Yonge, rector of Llanynys, in the diocese of Bangor, doctor of canon law, which contained that out of the fruits of the church, whose value then and for some time was far more than 100 marks, twenty-four portions called Claswriaiethe were formerly instituted, for the maintenance of twenty-four perpetual portionaries called ‘Abbatathelaswyr,’ one of them, whose portion was commonly called the portion of David the priest, having the cure of souls of the parishioners; that afterwards by reason of pestilence and wars the said fruits were diminished to barely 80 marks, and that therefore in course of time the number of portionaries was reduced by authority of the ordinary to two; and that the state of the church being otherwise changed, Griffin obtained it thus consolidated by authority of the metropolitan. At his petition the church and portions thus successively consolidated are consolidated anew, and mandate is given to the above executors to institute a perpetual vicarage, with a fit portion assigned, to which the rectors shall present, they being freed from the cure of souls, so that any of such rectors may without obtaining dispensation hold together with the said church any benefice or office with cure; or dignity or personatus with or without. cure.

St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 274.)
To William de Wildenholtz, elect of Salmas (Samasten.) Provision to him, a Friar Minor, in priest's orders, of that see, void by reason that the provision made to Thomas [Merke], whom the pope translated from Carlisle to Salmas, does not hold good, because Thomas did not, in accordance with a certain ordinance of the pope, have the apostolic letters of translation made out within the time appointed by the pope. The see has been void so long that it is impossible to have certain information as to the true manner of its voidance. (De mandato.)
18 Kal. Sept.

Confirmation of the sentence under which Robert Wytton, canon of London, doctor of canon law, obtained possession of his canonry and prebend of Twyford, alias Twyforth, which were so long void after their voidance by the death of John Danby that they lapsed to the see of Canterbury, as metropolitan, and of which he obtained provision by authority of archbishop Thomas as metropolitan. As they were unlawfully possessed by John Hyldiard, alias Hylliard, clerk, of the diocese of York, the archbishop issued a commission to Thomas Stowe, dean of St. Paul's, and John Barnet, official of Canterbury; and the dean, acting alone, gave a definitive sentence in favour of Robert, who was put in possession. Robert now doubts whether the dean observed all due legal solemnities. (De mandato.)

St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 318.)

St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 330.)

[Cancelled with strokes only, without marginal note, and unfinished. Water-stained.]
1402.
9 Kal. Nov.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 332d.)
To the archbishop of Canterbury.

The suit which arose between Iklyngton and Thomas Burstall, priest, of the diocese of Exeter, having been lawfully brought to the apostolic see, Iklyngton obtained a definitive sentence.
