[De Beneficiis Vacantibus.]

3 Non. Oct.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 18d.)
To Walter Cook, B.C.L. Provision of the canonry and prebend of Holborn in London, void and reserved to the pope—in accordance with the reservation lately made by him of all benefices void by the death of members of his court (curiales) when following the Roman court from place to place, however distant such place might be from the said court—by the recent death, without having had possession, near Monte Rotondo, in the diocese of Sabina, less than two days’ journey from the Roman court, whither he was following the pope and his court from Perugia to Rome, of Richard Carleton, advocate of the papal consistory and curialis, to whom provision thereof was made on their voidance by the death of Thomas Brightewell, during whose life they had been reserved by the pope. The value thereof and of the church of Brompton in Pykering Lith, in the diocese of York—provision of which, being void in a certain way and likewise previously reserved to the pope, has also been this day made to him by other letters [Reg. Lat. xxix. f. 83d]—is 120 marks. Notwithstanding that he is litigating in the apostolic palace about the church of Maydyston, in the diocese of Canterbury, and the chancellorship of London [Reg. xxx. f. 29], and has lately had from the pope provision of the canonries and prebends of Kydyngton [Major, added in Reg. xxx. f. 30] in London, Sydlesham in Chichester, and Morton Waden in Hereford, of none of which he has yet got possession, and whose value together is 500 marks; of canonries of London, Lincoln, and Wells, with expectation of prebends and dignities, personatus, or offices; and of a benefice with or without cure and a dignity with cure in the common or several gift of the archbishop and prior and chapter of Canterbury. On obtaining possession of the prebend of Holborn, the provision of a canonry of London with expectation of a prebend and dignity, personatus, or office, as regards such canonry and prebend only, and the provision of a canonry and prebend of Kydyngton, are to be null.
Concurrent mandate to the abbot of Westminster, John Mere, canon of Lincoln, and a foreign bishop.

De Exhibitis.

15 Kal. Nov.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 62d.)
To Griffen Yonge, canon of Abergwily. Extension, at the petition also of Queen Anne, of successive dispensations on account of illegitimacy—(i) to be ordained and hold a benefice even with cure; (ii) to hold two benefices, even if one had cure, after which he obtained the canonry and prebend of Gertprynge in Abergwily, and the church of Flaunynys, in the diocese of Bangor—so that he may hold any benefices of any number and kind, with and without cure, compatible with one another and with the above, even if canonries and prebends and elective dignities, major or principal respectively, personatus, perpetual administrations or offices, in metropolitan or cathedral and collegiate churches, 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. [See Reg. Lat. lxix. f. 80.] [Water-stained.]
3 Non. Nov.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 75d.)

Extension to him, who has studied civil law at Oxford, of dispensation as the son of a priest to be ordained and hold a benefice even with cure, so that he may hold other mutually compatible benefices with or without cure, even if canonries and prebends and elective dignities with cure, major or principal respectively, personatus or offices in metropolitan or cathedral or collegiate churches, and may exchange them as often as he wish for similar or dissimilar mutually compatible benefices.

To the archbishop of Dublin. Mandate, on petition of the Augustinian prior and convent of St. John Baptist, Lau[nde], in the diocese of Lincoln, and of king Richard, who has proposed to found in the monastery church, and to contribute towards the endowment of, a chapel or chantry in which three masses are to be said daily by three canons, to cause to be appropriated to the said monastery, for the relief of the burdens of the prior and convent and for the maintenance of the said chantry, three churches of their patronage to the value of 100 marks, the income of the monastery being 600.

17 Kal. Aug.
Perugia.
(f. 107d.)
To Master Andrew Baret, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate to surrogate Thomas de Weston, rector of Langnewenton, in the diocese of Durham, licentiate of civil law, whose petition contained that a cause arose between Peter de Stapilton, priest, of the diocese of York, and John Henley, canon of Chester [le Street], in the diocese of Durham, about the church of Seggesfeld, in the diocese of Durham, of which church, void by reason that the said John, its sometime rector, obtained and held it together with Holuchton in the same diocese, Peter received papal provision, which provision John opposed, retaining Seggesfeld. The cause was committed by Gregory XI. at Peter's instance to the late William Herborth, papal chaplain and auditor, and by Urban VI. to another, who adjudged the church to Peter. John's appeal was committed successively to John Egidii and Bertrand, bishop of Gubbio, the latter of whom reversed Herborth's sentence. Peter's appeal was committed to the late Peter Gasconis, and successively to divers others, and finally to Thomas de Ambrevilla, during whose hearing Urban VI. died. The present pope committed the cause to the above Master Andrew Baret. Seeing that, as the petition added, Stapilton, while the cause was pending before Baret, has obtained another benefice with cure, whereby Seggesfeld has become void, Thomas is to be surrogated to him as regards his right to Seggesfeld at that time, and the church, whose value is 200 marks, is to be collated and assigned to him; notwithstanding that he holds, besides Langnewenton, the wardenship of the poor hospital of Gretham, a perpetual portion without cure in the parish church of Derlyngton, and the canonry and prebend of Lamesley, in Chester [le Street], value altogether 100 marks.
