To John de Wellyncton, Augustinian canon of Lanthon priory in Wales, in the diocese of St. Davids. Rehabilitation and dispensation on account of irregularity contracted by his having in his youth, ten years ago, when already a canon of Lanthon, laid violent hands on and deprived of sight the late prior Nicholas, who had injured him and had wasted the goods of the priory, after which he came (accessisti) to the apostolic see and was absolved from excommunication incurred.
9 Kal. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 214.)
To John Frensch, alias Lynton, rector of Tunstal, in the diocese of Canterbury. Extension of dispensation on account of illegitimacy—to be ordained and hold two benefices, one of them with cure—so that he may hold two other mutually compatible benefices, even if one be a dignity with cure in a cathedral or metropolitan church, and may exchange them, as well as the said parish church, as often as he think good, for similar or dissimilar benefices. His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces.

De Diversis Formis.

13 Kal. Aug.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 221.)
To Master Nicholas de Vivianis, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate, if the facts be as stated, to collate and assign to John Burbache, priest, of Worcester, D.C.L. the church, however void, of Hampton Episcopi in that diocese, value 70 marks. Lately (dudum) it was set forth to the pope on the part of William Malpas, priest, of the diocese of Worcester, that he formerly (olim) exchanged by authority of the ordinary, bishop Henry, his archdeaconry of Worcester with the late Robert Broune for the said church, and that afterwards a suit arose between the said William Malpas about the said church which he had by the said authority held for some time, and still held at the time of his petition (tunc), and the said John Burbache and Thomas Flaadbury, priest, of the same diocese, who opposed the collation, each of them asserting that the church belonged to himself. On William's appeal the cause was brought to the apostolic see, and was committed by the present pope to the said auditor, after which it was signified on William's behalf that some persons asserted none of the three to have any right, upon which the pope issued a mandate to the auditor, if this were so, to give the church, however void, to William, who, as he asserted, had no other benefice, and who pretended that he was possessor thereof, and that the title which he had had thereto for five years and more was better than that of either John or Thomas. John's recent (nuper) petition has stated that the pope's grant was not good, because it was not mentioned therein that William was litigating in the papal palace with William Rocombe, clerk, of Worcester, about the archdeaconry.
