De Beneficiis Vacantibus.

3 Non. Oct.

(f. 83d.)
To Walter Cook, rector of Brompton in Pykering Lith, in the diocese of York, B.C.L. Provision of that church, void and reserved to the pope by the death without having had possession of Richard Carleton, as above [Reg. xxvii. f. 18d.], to whom provision thereof was made on the death of Richard Thorn, during whose lifetime it was reserved to the pope. The value of the said church, together with that of the canonry and prebend of Holborn in London, provision of which (likewise previously reserved) the pope has also this day made to him [Ibid.], is 120 marks. Notwithstanding etc. as above [Ibid]. On obtaining Brompton the said chancellorship, which is a dignity, and Maydiston are to be resigned.

De Beneficitis Vacaturis.

5 Id. Jan.
(f. 150)
To the archdeacon of Limerick. Mandate to reserve to John Harchor, rector of Athenedisse, in the diocese of Limerick, according to his fitness, after the usual examination in Latin, a benefice with or without cure, not being a canonry and prebend in a cathedral church, value 25 marks with cure or 18 without, in the common or several gift of the bishop, dean, and chapter of Limerick. On obtaining such benefice with cure he is to resign his rectory.

De Exhibitis.

8 Kal. Sept
(f. 195.)
To Master Andrew Baret, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate to surrogate, etc. The recent petition of William Cuylling, rector of Opton Pin in the diocese of Exeter, contained that a cause arose lately between the late John de Edneues, priest, and John Raw, canon of St. Thomas the Martyr's Glasney, about the provostship of the same, a dignity, provision of which (on its voidance by Master Thomas de Walkington, papal chaplain and auditor, obtaining by papal authority the deanery of Exeter, which has cure) Edneues obtained by the same authority, which provision Raw opposed, despoiling him and taking the fruits. The cause, lawfully introduced to the apostolic see, was committed by Urban VI. at the instance of Edneues to John, bishop of Hereford, then chaplain, etc. before whom Edneues appeared. The bishop, proceeding in possessorio only, removed Raw and restored Edneues. Before the cause in petitorio was resumed Urban VI. died, and the present pope committed it to the above Master Baret; and as before the said sentence was executed Edneues also died without the Roman court, the pope now orders the auditor to surrogate Cuylling to Edneues in the said cause in petitorio, and if he find that Edneues had, and that Raw has, no right, to collate and assign to Cuylling the said provostship, wont to be governed by canons of St. Thomas's, whose value, he asserts, does not exceed 60 marks, whether it be void by Walkington's obtaining possession of the said deanery, or, likewise by papal authority, of the church of Houghton in the diocese of Lincoln, or otherwise; notwithstanding that Cuylling holds his aforesaid church, and a canonry and prebend of St. Thomas's, value together 26 marks; has lately had provision from the pope of canonries, with expectation of prebends, of Exeter, Salisbury, and Wells, and of a dignity, personatus, or office, with or without cure, of Salisbury; of a benefice with or without cure in the common or several gift of the bishop, dean and chapter and each and singular the canons of Exeter, of another in the like gift of the Augustinian prior and convent of Plymton in that diocese, and another in the like gift of the prior and brethren of the Hospitallers in England; and has lately had dispensation to hold for two years two benefices with cure, even if dignities, personatus, or offices, in cathedral or collegiate churches, or parish churches, and to exchange them as often as he pleased for two similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices. On obtaining the provostship such graces are, as far only as regards benefices incompatible therewith, to be null and void, and his parish church is to be resigned. (Pro Deo.)

De Provisionibus.

3 Id. Oct.
St. Peter's Rome.
(f. 243d.)
Provision to Tydeman, Cistercian abbot of Beaulieu, in the diocese of Winchester, of the see of Llandaff, void by the death of bishop Edmund, during whose lifetime it was reserved by the present pope.
Concurrent letters to the chapter of Llandaff, to the clergy and to the people of the city and diocese, to vassals of the church, to the archbishop of Canterbury, and to king Richard.
6 Kal. Feb.
(f. 254d.)
Translation of Maurice, bishop of Clonfert, to the see of Tuam, from which William is being translated to Clonfert; considering that he and William will be able to rule Tuam and Clonfert more usefully, and that if the provision to Tuam were delayed, that church might be exposed to divers perils, and suffer grave detriment in spiritualities and temporalities.
Concurrent letters to the chapter of Tuam, to the people and to the clergy of the city and diocese, to vassals of the church, to the suffragans of Tuam, and to king Richard.

Pro Dominis Cardinalibus.

16 Kal. Feb.
(f. 281d.)
To Master Paul de Dugmano, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate, motu proprio, to surrogate, etc. as below, Adam, cardinal priest of St. Cecilia's. It has recently come to the pope's notice that a cause arose lately between cardinal Adam and Robert Manfelde, priest, of the diocese of York, about the provostship of St. John's, Beverley, provision of which, on its voidance by the death of John de Thoresby, was made to the cardinal by papal authority, which provision Robert opposed, intruding himself. The cause was committed by the present pope to Master Paul, who has proceeded to a number of acts, short of a conclusion. As it had been set forth to the pope on the part of Christopher, cardinal priest of St. Cyriac's, that Robert similarly opposed his papal provision of the canonry and prebend of Ustwayt in York, intruding himself and taking the fruits, and that Christopher, on account of the power and malice of Robert, had no hope of obtaining justice in those parts nor of causing him to be cited there, the pope committed the cause, at the cardinal's instance, to Nicholas [bishop] elect of Potenza, then chaplain, etc. notwithstanding that the cause did not by its nature lawfully devolve to the Roman court. The auditor was to cite Robert, if necessary, by public edict posted on the doors of St. Peter's, Rome, where the pope was then residing, and in other public places on the continent (citra mare) near England (illis partibus vicinis), to resign the said canonry and prebend to cardinal Christopher, with fruits taken, or else to allege before the auditor cause why; which the auditor proceeded to do. And seeing that Robert was contumacious, the said auditor, with the counsel and assent of his co-auditors of the apostolic palace, to whom he made a faithful relation, and while the cause between cardinal Adam and Robert was pending before the above Master Paul, pronounced against Robert, being in possession of the said provostship, sentence of excommunication, deprivation of all his benefices, and disability in future to hold them or others. As, accordingly, all Robert's right in regard to the provostship is void, the pope orders Master Paul to surrogate cardinal Adam to him in respect of the said provostship, whose value is 400 marks, and to collate and assign it to him.
