Lateran Regesta, Vol. XVI.

De Prebendis Et Dignitatibus Vacantibus.

3 Kal. Aug.
St. Peter's Rome.
(f. 27.)
To Thomas de Mountagu, licentiate of canon and civil law. Provision, at the petition also of the king his kinsman, of the deanery of Salisbury, a dignity with cure, value 450 marks, void by the resignation of Angelus, cardinal priest of St. Laurence's in Damaso. The deanery was held by the late James, cardinal deacon of St. George's in Velabro, on whose death the chapter (to whom by ancient, approved, and hitherto observed custom the election belongs) elected-perhaps in ignorance of Urban VI.'s reservation on their voidance of all benefices of cardinals—Robert, bishop of London, then canon of Chichester, who got confirmation from the ordinary, whilst pope Urban made provision of the same to the late Thomas, cardinal deacon of St. Mary's in Domnica. Upon Robert's receiving from Urban provision of the see of London and his consecration, the chapter elected Mountagu, then canon of Bromezerde, in the diocese of Hereford, who likewise got confirmation from the ordinary. Subsequently, upon the death of Urban VI. and cardinal Thomas, the present pope, in accordance with the usual general reservation, at his accession, of benefices of cardinals, made provision of the deanery to the above-named cardinal Angelus, who has resigned, as above. The provision is made notwithstanding that Mountagu holds the parish church of Chaddesey, in the diocese of Wells, which is to be resigned, and the said canonry and prebend, value in all 60 marks.
Concurrent mandate to the archbishop of Canterbury, the archdeacon of Worcester, and the prior of Winchester.

De Beneficiis Vacantibus.

10 Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 111.)
To the official of Rochester. Mandate to collate and assign to John Merys, priest, of the diocese of Canterbury, if found fit after the usual examination in Latin, the perpetual vicarage of Gyllingham in the diocese of Rochester, value 60 marks, void recently by the death of William near the castle of Trys, in the diocese of Spoleto, not more than two days’ journey from Rome whither he had come for his affairs and whence he was returning and where the pope was residing.

De Prebendis Et Dignitatibus Vacaturis.

6 Id. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 175.)
To the archbishop of Canterbury. Mandate to make provision to William Fisscher, rector of Clayton, in the diocese of Chichester, if found fit after examination, of a canonry of Chichester, and to reserve to him, if found fit in Latin, or if he swear to be so within a year, a prebend and dignity, not major after the pontifical, personatus or office with or without cure, or if not found sufficiently fit, and if he do not so swear a prebend and office without cure; notwithstanding that William holds also a certain benefice without cure, called a chantry (cantoriam), in Chichester. On his obtaining such dignity, personatus, or office with cure (curatum officium), Clayton is to be resigned.
Non. March.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 179.)
To John Rede, bachelor of canon law. Provision of a canonry of Waterford with reservation of a prebend and elective dignity with cure, major after the pontifical, personatus or office; notwithstanding that he holds the canonry and prebend of Downaghmore in Limerick; is litigating in the apostolic palace about the archdeaconry of Cork, of which he has not yet got possession; has recently had provision from the present pope of canonries of Ferns and Lismore, and this day of Cashel, with expectation of prebends; and has lately had provision, on its voidance, of the church of Cuslowe, in the diocese of Lincoln, of which he likewise has not yet got possession. Upon obtaining such dignity, personatus, or office with cure (curatum officium), he is to surrender his right in respect of the said church and archdeaconry.
Concurrent mandate to the prior of Kenlis, in the diocese of Ossory, the dean of Ferns, and Richard Yong, canon of Lincoln. (Pro Deo.)
