3 Boniface IX.

De Provisionibus.

Id. Nov.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 120d.)
To Thomas Ilsshawe [See Reg. cccxii. f. 71.] Provision to him, a Friar Minor, in priest's orders, of the see of Coutances, reserved by Urban VI. during the episcopate of the son of iniquity, William, sometime bishop, and afterwards void by his adherence to Clement VII; Urban VI. having died without disposing thereof.
Concurrent mandate to the chapter, to the clergy and to the people of the city and diocese, and to the archbishop of Rouen.

De Exhibitis.

8 Kal. April.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 155.)
To the bishop of Lincoln. Mandate, if the facts be as stated, to grant the inhabitants of the township (ville…villata nuncupate) of Belmes[t]horp, in his diocese, licence to depute a perpetual chaplain at their charges to serve their chapel of St. Mary the Virgin in Belmes[t]horp, they being separated from the parish church of Real, within whose bounds they are situate, by streams of water which make access thereto difficult.
4 Id. March.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 158.)
To the archdeacon of Oxford in Lincoln. Mandate to collate and assign to Thomas de Eltisle, canon of Salisbury, B.C.L. if found fit after the usual examination in Latin, the church of Donyngton, in the diocese of Salisbury, value 50 marks. His recent petition contained that papal provision of it was made to William Grey on its voidance by the supposed reason that the late Richard Beneger held it for a year and more without having himself ordained priest; that Thomas obtained Donyngton by exchange with Grey for Toppesfeld, in the diocese of London, the exchange being made by bishops John of Salisbury and Robert of London; that at the time of these resignations a suit was, unknown to Thomas, pending in the apostolic palace between Richard Mey, clerk, of the diocese of Exeter, and the said Richard Beneger about Donyngton, provision of which (opposed by Mey) Beneger had obtained under papal letters on its voidance by Richard Abet's making his profession in the Carthusian house of Hyncton, in the diocese of Wells; that Beneger obtained two definitive sentences by which the church was adjudged to him, and silence imposed on Mey, but that before the sentences were executed Beneger died. As Thomas doubts whether he may not be molested, the pope orders Donyngton to be given him as above, whether it be void by Beneger's not having himself ordained priest within the lawful time, or by his death or by the resignation of William [Grey]; notwithstanding that he has canonries and prebends of Salisbury, [H]astynges, and Wulvernhamton, value together 50 marks.
3 Non. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 160d.)
To William, bishop of Winchester. Confirmation to him— who has by apostolic licence newly founded and endowed ‘Seinte Marie College of Wynchestre’ for seventy scholars to be instructed in grammar, with a chapel or oratory; has instituted by his ordinary authority a warden, and has appointed a removable master to instruct the said scholars; has made other statutes and ordinances; and proposes in addition to depute ten perpetual [in margin] secular priests to celebrate mass and other divine offices in the chapel, with three clerks and sixteen boys to assist them, and to be changed and removed in accordance with an ordinance he has made—of the said institution, appointment, statutes, and ordinance; with indult to depute the said number of priests, clerks, and boys, who may be changed and removed in accordance with the said ordinance. (De mandato.) [Compare Lat. Reg. xxv. f. 60d.]
3 Non. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 163.)
To the bishop of Salisbury. Mandate to grant licence to John de Ravenser, priest, Thomas de More, John Deynes, John de Somersby, clerks, Thomas Claymond, John Belle or Bolle, William Michel, William Tullymond and John Hulle, laymen, and Isabella relict of Thomas de Friskeney, knight, of the diocese of Lincoln, to found and endow out of certain lands and possessions in the diocese, belonging to them in common, three perpetual chaplaincies called chantries (cantorias) in the parish churches of Leck and Leverton in the diocese, and to augment a chantry founded in Leck by Laurence de Leck; their desire being hindered by John, bishop of Lincoln, because a kinsman of his, who has to wife a daughter of Isabella, hopes to succeed to that part of such lands and possessions which belongs to Isabella.
13 Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 166.)
To James, bishop of Monopoli, dwelling in the Roman court. Mandate to absolve from excommunication incurred, to grant dispensation for irregularity contracted, and to rehabilitate Richard Ellesmere, priest, Augustinian canon of St. John the Evangelist's, Hagmon, in the diocese of Lichfield, who is now at the Roman court for the purpose. Formerly, upon a disputed election of an abbot, Richard, who with certain of his fellow canons made opposition, repaired to the Roman court in order to prosecute their intent, abandoned his regular habit, put on the habit of a secular clerk, and celebrated therein, or more truly profaned, mass and other divine offices, continuing to do so as a secular priest for some time after his return to his own parts. He has now re-entered his monastery. (Pro Deo.)
Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 170d.)
To John, bishop of Ely, and the Benedictine abbot and convent of Rameseye, in the diocese of Lincoln. (i) Licence, at the recent petition of king Richard, for the abbot and convent to give and grant with its appurtenances to the bishop and his successors, for their mensa, the manor of Chateriz (Catheriz in text. In margin: ‘Charteriz. Correctum de mandato, N. de Ben[even]to’), situate in the diocese of Ely, and in the bishop's demesne (sub dominio), which both the bishop and the abbot and convent and their predecessors have claimed, and about which have arisen dissensions, suits, mutilations, homicides, etc. (ii) Appropriation to the abbot and convent of the churches of Schutlingdon and Therfeld (similarly corrected in margin from Terfeld as in the text) in the diocese of Lincoln, of their patronage, value 280 marks over and above the portions to be assigned for perpetual vicars and the other burdens to be supported by the monastery, value itself 3000 marks. The present licence and appropriation are in pursuance of an ordinance made by certain prelates and others deputed by King Richard from his council (de consilio suo) for the purpose of ending such dissensions, etc.
