St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 11.)
To the Augustinian abbot of Brun, in the diocese of Lincoln. Mandate to appropriate to the prior and convent of Sempringham, who have begun to rebuild their church, which is prostrated to the ground with age, the church of Hacumby of their patronage, in the said diocese, value 30 marks, that of the monastery being 600 marks; a perpetual vicar's [portion] is to be reserved.

St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 12.)
To Thomas Colman, canon of the Augustinian priory of Launde, in the diocese of Lincoln. Dispensation on account of irregularity contracted, and rehabilitation so that he may hold any benefices of his order. Lately it was set forth to Urban VI. on behalf of William Fraukener (sic for Faukener, as below, and at the corresponding place in f. 13d), rector of Hatheysegge, in the diocese of Lichfield, that he obtained a definitive sentence in the apostolic palace in his cause long ventilated there against William Alwold, clerk, of the same diocese, and the above Thomas Colman, then prior of Launde, respecting the said church, provision of which on its voidance Fraukener had obtained under papal letters, and which Alwold with Colman's help unlawfully occupied; that pending the execution of the sentence by Andrew Baret, canon of Lincoln, acting without his two colleagues, Alwold under pretence of an exchange resigned the church, and Aswold (sic here) and Colman had Richard Brentinghi (sic), clerk, of the said diocese, intruded into it; that Urban VI. ordered Baret and his colleagues to proceed against Richard as though the above sentence had been delivered against him, and the bishop of Lichfield to take the church into his own hands, cause it to be served in spirituals, and give any surplus of its fruits to Fraukener; that nevertheless Alwold, Brentinghi, and Colman, in contempt of the sentences incurred, celebrated divine offices and caused Faukener (sic here, and in the several further mentions of the name) to be summoned before the secular courts, and outlawed and condemned in 80 marks. Urban VI. ordered Baret and his colleagues, if they found the above to be true, to deprive Alwold, Brentinghi, and Colman of all their benefices, and to render them unable to hold others. Baret deprived Colman, as his recent petition contained, of his priory, and the other two of their benefices, after which Colman repented, got absolution, and now prays for dispensation and rehabilitation.

(f. 13d.)
To Richard Brentynghy, priest, of the diocese of Lincoln. Dispensation on account of irregularity contracted, and rehabilitation so that he may hold any benefices. Lately, etc. as above, mutatis mutandis. [Here with the readings Hauersegge, Faukener, and Alwold, throughout.]
4 Id. March.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 21.)
To Thomas Wardroper, rector of Burton Novary (cancelled, and in margin: Stykeney, Correctum de mandato, N. de Ben[even]to), in the diocese of Lincoln. Extension of dispensation, as below, f. 100. [There are three margin additions, each subscribed as above, and all incorporated in f. 100. The letter is cancelled with strokes, and in the margin is: Cancellata quia inferius propter sui nimiam correctionem folio c. aliter registrata est.]
7 Kal. March.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 44d.)
To the archbishop of Canterbury, the bishop of London, and a foreign bishop. Mandate, on petition of Richard Clyfford, to execute against the present or any other intruder the definitive sentence gained by him in the apostolic palace, the execution of which was committed to the above, in the cause between him and John called ‘Thomas,’ clerk, of the diocese of Lincoln, respecting the canonry and prebend of Lerhtonburssarde in Lincoln, which Richard obtained on their voidance by authority of the ordinary, and of which John despoiled him. It has come to the knowledge of Richard that John, while the suit was pending, made a pretended exchange of the said prebend of Lechtonburssarde (sic here) for another in the said church with William Ascheton, priest, of the diocese, who now occupies it.
6 Non. March.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 45.)
To the abbot of Pippewelle. Mandate, if necessary, to augment the portion reserved to the vicar of Desburgh, in the diocese of Lincoln. Lately it was set forth to Urban VI. on behalf of the Augustinian prioress and convent of St. John Baptist, Rothewell, in the diocese of Lincoln, that Richard Clare, earl of Gloucester, founded the priory, but died before he had sufficiently endowed it. As he left no male issue, his patrimony was divided among his daughters, who neglected to assign a fitting endowment, on account of which the prioress and convent, fourteen in number, could not expend for their food and clothing, and that of their servants, beyond 4 marks and four fields (agris) of land, in one of which the priory was situated, so that some of them were compelled, for the sustentation of themselves and the other nuns, with the opprobrium of mendicity, to beg alms after the fashion of friars of the mendicant orders. Wherefore king Richard granted them his patronage of Desburgh, in order that it might be appropriated to them, which Urban VI. ordered the bishop to do, a fitting portion for a perpetual vicar being reserved. The recent petition of John Harry, the vicar, contained that the portion assigned by the bishop is insufficient.
4 Id. March.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 47.)
To Robert de Halton, priest, of Lincoln. Extension of dispensation on account of illegitimacy to be ordained and hold a benefice even with cure, so that he may hold two other mutually compatible benefices, even if canonries and prebends and dignities, personatus, or offices in cathedrals, and may exchange them as often as seems good to him for similar or dissimilar mutually compatible benefices. His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces.

His illegitimacy need not be mentioned in future graces. (De mandato.) [See f. 21.]

To the bishop of London.

Lat. xii. f. 115d.]) to summon the abbot and convent of Abingdon, and others concerned, and to proceed according to the pope's former mandate [ibid.] ordering the prior to grant licence to the parishioners to have a cemetery of their own. The recent petition of the same contained that the licence granted by the prior has been contested by the abbot and convent on the ground that they were not cited by him, and that they have obtained the committal of the cause to Master Branda de Castillione, papal chaplain and auditor, who has proceeded to a number of acts short of a conclusion, which cause the pope hereby calls in to himself.
