Lateran Regesta, Vol. XI.

2 Boniface IX.

De Beneficiis Vacaturis.

4 Id. Jan.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 79.)
To the provost of St. Thomas the Martyr's, Glaseney, in the diocese of Exeter. Mandate to make provision to William Lichefelde, priest, of the same diocese, according to his fitness after the usual examination in Latin, of a benefice in the common or several gift of the Augustinian prior and convent of Bodimine, value 25 marks with cure of souls, or 18 without.

De Diversis Formis.

7 Id. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 89.)
To Eudo la Zouche, rector of Granesby, in the diocese of Lincoln, D.C.L. Dispensation, at the petition also of king Richard, whose kinsman he is, to him, who holds, besides the said rectory, value 30 marks, the canonry and prebend of Empingham in Lincoln, to hold for two years and to exchange one other benefice incompatible with his rectory, even if it be an elective dignity with cure, major in a cathedral or metropolitan, or principal in a collegiate church, personatus, perpetual administration, office, or parish church, and have cure, and to exchange meanwhile his said church and such benefice for similar or dissimilar benefices. [See f. 107.]
2 Id. Oct.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 96.)
To Gruffut ap Llewelin ap Kynwre, donsel, of the diocese of Bangor. Licence to him and his heirs to have masses and other divine offices celebrated in the oratory of the poor hospital of St. Mary the Virgin, in the said diocese, situate between two arms of the sea called Traethurtro and Abermo, eight English miles apart, in which the tide ebbs and flows twice a day (in die naturali) as far as the mountains which are opposite the sea; the said hospital having been begun to be founded and built by him for poor and wayfarers, and being difficult of access.
3 Kal. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 105.)
To Master Andrew Baret, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate to summon Thomas Goldyngton, priest, of the diocese of London, and laymen concerned, and to excommunicate them until they shall make satisfaction, and come to the apostolic see to be absolved, in the circumstances set forth in the recent petition of Thomas Tollerton, priest, of the diocese of York, which contained that between him and Goldyngton a suit arose lately about the church of St. Martin Orgar, London, void by the death of Henry Churechhuel, and collated to Tollerton by apostolic authority, which cause, lawfully brought to the apostolic see, the pope committed at Tollerton's instance, to the late Thomas de Ambrevilla, papal chaplain and auditor. After the said auditor had proceeded to a number of acts, it was set forth by Tollerton that Goldyngton, with James and Thomas Snawe, laymen of the said diocese [of London] and their servants, had inflicted divers injuries on him, and were at his instance cited by the said auditor, by the pope's furthur commission, after which the cause was committed by the pope to the above Master Baret. Upon the citation being made by Alan Norreis, clerk, of the diocese of Lichfield, the said laymen, at Goldyngton's instigation, horribly fell upon Tollerton and Alan, saying, “We defy you, ribald knaves (scurras) and losels, and don't care for your apostolic letters and citation, and before you go away you shall pay for it"; and beat Alan grievously, and wounded Tollerton until the blood flowed, and knocked him down, thereby incurring the greater excommunication. Moreover, also at Goldyngton's instance, they got Tollerton and Alan arrested and imprisoned by the secular court of London; and Goldyngton obtained a writ from the royal chancery by which Tollerton and Alan were ordered under penalty of 400l. not to leave the realm or bring their complaint before the said [papal] court, oaths and pledges being extorted from them to that effect, to the contempt of the apostolic see and scandal of many. Wherefore Tollerton has prayed the pope to commit to Master Baret the causes, civil and criminal, which he intends to bring. In addition to the above mandate the pope orders the auditor to hear and decide the causes, and to relax such oaths and pledges, and if he find that Goldyngton procured the violence and imprisonment, to deprive him of whatever right he may have in the said church, of which the value is 40 marks, and to collate and make provision of it to Tollerton.

4 Boniface IX.

7 Id. Jan.
(f. 107.)
To Eudo la Zouche, rector of Wytheryn, in the diocese of Lincoln, D.C.L. Dispensation to him—who, after the above dispensation (f. 89) here recapitulated, resigned his church of Granesby and obtained those of Witheryn and North Colingham, in the dioceses of Lincoln and York—to hold them for life, and to exchange them as often as he please for two similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices, even dignities with cure in cathedrals. [Cancelled by penstrokes, and in the left-hand margin: Cancellata quia registrata alibi de anno quarto.]
5 Kal. Dec.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 118.)
To the abbot and convent of St. Augustine's monastery, Canterbury, immediately belonging to the Roman church. Licence to the abbot and his successors to dispense monks of the monastery, having attained their twenty-second year, to be ordained priest by any catholic bishop in communion with the apostolic see.
