To Master Paul de Dugmano, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate to surrogate etc. as below, Walter Cook, clerk, of the diocese of Lichfield, B.C.L., whose recent petition contained that a cause arose lately between John Leuesham, priest, of the diocese of York, and the late Richard Carleton, about the church of Brompton in Pykering Lith, papal provision of which, on its voidance by the death of Richard Thoern, was made to Carleton, which provision Leuesbam opposed, taking the fruits; and that the cause was committed by the present pope to the above Master Paul, at Carleton's instance. As the petition adds, while the cause was pending, Carleton died [as related above, Reg. xxvii. f. 18d]. The auditor is ordered to surrogate Cook in respect of Carleton's right.

(f. 29.)
To Master James Floriani, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate to collate and assign, as below. The recent petition of Walter Cock (Cook), clerk, of the diocese of Lichfield, B.C.L. contained that a cause arose lately between him and Roger Holm, canon of London, about the chancellorship of London, papal provision of which was made to Walter on its voidance by reason that Roger obtained it by authority of the ordinary, being a dignity with cure, not major below the pontifical, and held it, without a dispensation, along with his parish church of Warmuth, in the diocese of Durham, contrary to John XXII.'s constitution Execrabilis, which provision Roger opposed. The cause, although not lawfully devolving by its nature to the Roman court, was committed by the present pope to Master James. As, the petition adds, it is asserted that neither of them has any right, the pope orders the auditor, if he find this to be the case, to collate and assign the chancellorship, whose value is 100 marks, to Walter, whether it be void as above, or by the deprivation of Roger, or if he be not yet deprived in the Roman court, in the event of his being so deprived under the processes begun against him in that court at the instance of Adam, cardinal priest of St. Cecilia's [see f. 298]; notwithstanding that Walter has lately had provision from the present pope of the canonries and prebends of Kydyngton Major in London, Sydlesham in Chichester, and Morton Wadon in Hereford, the parish church of Maydiston, in the diocese of Canterbury, about which he is litigating in the apostolic palace, of none of which he has yet got possession; of canonries of London and Lincoln and Wells, with expectation of prebends, and of a dignity, personatus, or office, with or without cure, of Wells; and of a benefice without cure in the common or several gift of the archbishop, etc. of Canterbury, the value of all which is 600 marks. Upon obtaining the chancellorship he is to resign, if meanwhile he get it, the said parish church [of Maydiston].

(f. 73.)
To Bertrand, bishop of Gubbio, dwelling in the Roman court. Mandate to surrogate, etc., as below. The recent petition of Walter Cook, clerk, of the diocese of Lincoln, B.C.L. contained that a cause arose lately between William Dynghere, clerk, of the diocese of Exeter, and the late Richard Carleton, priest, about the canonry and prebend of Holborn in London, papal provision of which, on their voidance by the death of Thomas Brychtewell, was made to Carleton, which provision Dynghere opposed, taking the fruits, and that the cause was committed by the present pope to the said bishop at Carleton's instance. As the petition adds, while the cause was pending Carleton died [as above, Reg. xxvii. f. 18d]. The bishop is ordered to surrogate Cook in respect of Carleton's right. The value of the said canonry and prebend, as well as of the church of Brompton, provision of which the pope has made to Cook, is 120 marks. Notwithstanding, etc. [as above, ibid.]. On obtaining the canonry and prebend of Holborn, the provision of a canonry of London, with expectation of a prebend and dignity, personatus, or office, as far as regards a canonry and prebend only, and that of the canonry and prebend of Kydyngton, are to be null and void.
4 Kal. Oct.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 85.)
To the archbishop of Canterbury. Mandate to grant licence for the foundation of a monastery of the order of St. Clare, as below. It having been set forth to Urban VI. on the part of William Cary, donsel, of the diocese of Exeter, that he proposed, having obtained licence from king Richard, to erect the parish church of the Blessed Virgin and All Saints, Clovely, of which he is patron, and whose value was 50 marks, into a collegiate and regular church of the order of St. Augustine, and therein to found and endow a college of seven regular priests of the said order, who should wear cassocks (vestes talares) like secular priests, with a small cross of red and white on (circa) the breast on the outer garment (in superiori veste), and of whom one should be warden, and exercise the cure of souls of the parishioners, Urban VI. granted faculty to the then archbishop of Canterbury, his name not being expressed, to proceed thereto, instituting members of the said order, or receiving the profession of priests willing to enter it. William's recent petition to the present pope contained that he cannot find priests willing to join the order, and now proposes to found and build a monastery for an abbess and twenty-four nuns of St. Clare, to which order he has a special devotion, with a church or oratory, cemetery, bell tower, bell, dwellings, and other necessary offices, and to endow it out of his own goods and the fruits of the said church. The archbishop is ordered to grant him licence to carry out this foundation, a portion of the said fruits being reserved for a secular priest, who on the resignation or death of the present rector shall have cure of the parishioners’ souls.

Perugia.
(f. 184d.)
To the bishop of Salisbury. Mandate to absolve and to grant dispensation on account of irregularity, as below, to William Sleford, dean, and the chapter of St. Stephen's chapel in the royal palace of Westminster, whose recent petition contained that a cause arose between them and the abbot and abbot and convent of Westminster, the latter asserting that the said chapel lay within the bounds of the parish of St. Margaret's church, [which is] within the cemetery of the said monastery; that the said church of St. Margaret, with all chapels within the parish, is appropriated to the abbot and convent; that the said chapel, which is collegiate, belongs to them; that they receive the parochial tithes and oblations which the said parish church has been wont to receive from its subject chapels, as also the funeral and all other parochial rights arising in the said chapel; and that they exercise jurisdiction alike in the said parish and in the said chapel; all which dean William and the chapter denied. The cause was committed by Gregory XI. at the instance of the abbot and convent to the late Nicholas, archbishop of Naples, then papal chaplain and auditor, who, upon the contumacy of the dean and chapter, promulgated sentence of excommunication against the dean and each of the chapter, of suspension against the chapter, and of interdict upon the chapel. After the cause had long been heard by divers auditors, the abbot and convent obtained a definitive sentence, letters executory being issued to Augustine, bishop of Perugia, then bishop of Penna, the dean of Arches, and the archdeacon of Oxford (Osonien) in the church of Lincoln, the former of whom promulgated the sentences. As the dean and chapter remained contumacious, Peter Counnbe, monk of Westminster, as the bishop's sub-executor, published the sentences, but they, not in contempt of the keys, but in ignorance of the law, have continued to celebrate divine offices. They are now ready to submit, and to make satisfaction to the abbot and convent.

Declaration that Walter, bishop of Durham, and Thomas Weston, rector of Langneuton, in his diocese, were unaware of the falsity of certain letters fabricated under the pope's name and bull, a duplicate of which Thomas, believing at the time that they were true and valid, sent to the bishop, whose envoy he was to the pope, and the original of which he afterwards, upon finding them false, presented in person to the pope. The said letters, which the pope has by other letters declared false, and of which exemplification is here given, are addressed to Walter, bishop of Durham, begin ‘Romani pontificis providentia,’ and are dated at Perugia, 5 Kal. Aug. anno quarto. The pope therein exempts Walter, whilst bishop of Durham, and his officials, etc. from the jurisdiction and power, metropolitan and legatine, of the archbishop of York, now and for the time being, and takes them under his protection and that of the apostolic see, so that the archbishop cannot suspend, excommunicate, depose, or fine the bishop and his said officials, etc. interdict their places or sequestrate their fruits, make processes or fulminate any sentences against them, all such being decreed null beforehand. (De mandato.)
8 Id. Oct.

(f. 233.)
Declaration of the non-reservation to the apostolic see of the archdeaconry of Meath. The pope recapitulates the mandate issued by Gregory [XI.] to the bishop of Meath, in which the bishop's name was not expressed, in the long standing cause between Hugh, then cardinal deacon of St. Mary's in Porticu, and the late Matthew Cromp about the said archdeaconry [Reg. cclxxxiv. f. 127d.] The bishop proceeded, during the lifetime of Gregory and Matthew, to assign an annual pension to the cardinal and to surrogate Matthew to him in respect of the archdeaconry. Urban VI. made provision thereof, void and reserved by the adhesion of cardinal Hugh to the antipope called Clement VII, to the late Lewis, cardinal deacon of New St. Mary's. Subsequently a cause arose about the said archdeaconry between Landulph, cardinal deacon of St. Nicholas in Carcere Tulliano, to whom provision thereof was made on its voidance by the death, without having had possession, of cardinal Lewis, and Thomas Sprot, clerk, of London, Matthew's successor, who opposed the provision. The cause, lawfully introduced to the apostolic see, was committed by the present pope, at the instance of Thomas, to Master Paul de Dugmano, chaplain, etc. and is still pending. As many doubt whether the archdeaconry, on account of the aforesaid, has remained reserved to the apostolic see, the pope declares hereby that from the time of the assignment of the said pension it did and does not remain, and was and is not, generally nor specially, reserved in any way to the apostolic see.
6 Id. Nov.

(f. 235.)

To Thomas de Monteacuto, dean of Salisbury, licentiate of canon and civil law. Extension of dispensation, at the petition also of king Richard, whose kinsman he is, so that he may retain for life the church of Chaddesey—which by the terms of the provision lately made to him by the pope of the deanery, an elective major dignity with cure, void and previously reserved, he was to resign, and which he afterwards, before obtaining possession of the deanery, had dispensation to retain therewith for two years, the pope willing him to exchange during that period one or other for a benefice compatible with the remaining one, otherwise at the end of that time to resign the church—after the lapse of the said two years, which are about to end, or to exchange it for any other benefice incompatible [with the deanery], even if an elective dignity, major in a metropolitan or cathedral, or principal in a collegiate church, personatus or office, with cure, and to exchange the same or both as often as seems good to him for two similar or dissimilar mutually incompatible benefices.

To Thomas Leche, B.C.L. Provision of the canonry and prebend of Norton in Hereford, value 10 marks, void and reserved to Urban VI. (under his general reservation of all benefices void through papal collation) through John Harold, dean of Hereford, obtaining by authority of that pope and during his lifetime the canonry and prebend of Bolinghope, united to the deanery. On the death of Urban VI, who died without having disposed of Norton, the present pope declared that all such benefices reserved by Urban VI. and void at his death remained void and at the pope's sole disposal, under which declaration he makes the present provision; notwithstanding that Leache has lately had provision from the present pope of the canonry and prebend of Landelandaveylok, in Abergwili, value 10 marks, and of canonries of Hereford and Abergwili, with expectations of prebends. Upon obtaining Norton the expectation in Hereford is to be null and void.

1393.
13 Kal. Aug.
Perugia.
(f. 298.)
To William de Waltham, B.C.L. Provision of a canonry and prebend of London, as below. Lately the pope reserved all benefices void by papal deprivations; after which it was set forth to the pope on the part of Adam, cardinal priest of St. Cecilia's, that he had provision from the present pope, on its voidance, of the church of Warmouth, in the diocese of Durham, previously reserved, after and against which reservation Roger de Holm, sometime canon of London, intruded himself, taking the fruits; and that the pope committed the cause at the cardinal's instance to Master Thomas de Walkington, papal chaplain and auditor, who was, if he found the facts to be as above, to warn Roger under pain of excommunication, deprivation and disability, to give up the benefice to the cardinal, and make him satisfaction for fruits received, all which the auditor did, but Roger refused and refuses to obey, thereby incurring the said sentences. The cause was committed to Master John Trevor, papal chaplain and auditor, who declared Roger to be excommunicate, deprived, and unable to hold any benefices, whereby a canonry and prebend of London, value 50 marks, which he then held, has become void, whereof the pope now makes provision to William de Waltham; notwithstanding that he holds canonries and prebends of Salisbury and Wells, value together 130 marks, and a canonry and prebend of York, value 40 marks, and has lately had papal provision of the church of Orpyngton, then void, in the diocese of Rochester, value 100 marks, and recently of a dignity, personatus, or office, with or without cure, when void, in Salisbury.

To the archbishop of Cashel. Mandate to collate and assign to Thomas Wyot, perpetual vicar of Kalcolme or Kalcome, in the diocese of Ossory, if found fit after examination, the canonry and prebend of Ferns, value 20 marks, which became void and reserved to the pope (under his late reservation of void benefices of collectors to the camera) by the death of John Karlele, collector in Ireland, although Richard Montayne, priest, of the diocese of Ferns, unduly detains them; notwithstanding that he holds Kalcome, value 10 marks, and has lately had provision from the present pope of the perpetual vicarage of Bray, then void, in the diocese of Salisbury, value 50 marks, and of a benefice with or without cure, when void, in the common or several gift of the bishop, prior, and chapter of Winchester. On obtaining the said canonry and prebend, the last named provision is, as Thomas has offered, to be null and void.
3 Non. July.
Perugia.
(f. 353d.)
To William Langbrok, licentiate of canon law. Provision of a canonry and prebend of Wells, as below. Lately the pope reserved all benefices void at the apostolic see; after which it was set forth to him on William's behalf that a cause arose between him and Raynald, cardinal deacon of St. Vitus's in the Shambles (in Macello), about the canonry and prebend of Wormestorre in Wells, and the treasurership of the same, which William obtained, on their voidance in a certain way, by authority of the ordinary, and held for some time, and papal provision of which, void in another way, was made to the said cardinal, which provision William opposed, holding possession and taking the fruits. The cause, lawfully introduced to the apostolic see, was committed by Urban VI. at the cardinal's instance to the late Oderic de Ragoma, papal chaplain and auditor, who adjudged them to the cardinal and imposed silence on William, who was then absent from the Roman court, condemning him in fruits and costs. William, who did not give them up and has not yet done so, incurred by his contumacy sentences of excommunication, suspension, and interdict, and afterwards, by Urban VI's further mandate to the said auditor, of deprivation of his benefices and disability to hold any others, from which sentences he was by the present pope provisionally absolved, received dispensation on account of irregularity, if any, and was rehabilitated, and on their voidance, by the cardinal's resignation made to the pope, received provision of the said canonry and prebend and treasurership. After all this, Master Andrew Baret, papal chaplain and auditor, who asserted that he had papal provision of the canonry and prebend, renounced the same to the pope, whereby they are void and reserved to the apostolic see. The pope therefore makes provision thereof, value 60 marks, to William; notwithstanding that he holds the said treasurership, value 160 marks.
Concurrent mandate to the bishop and official of Salisbury and the abbot of Glastonbury.
