To the archdeacon of Durham (corrected in margin from the official of Salisbury, as originally in text). Mandate to collate and assign to William de Waltham, canon of Salisbury, if found fit after examination, the canonry and prebend of Chalk in Wilton—in the church of which monastery, in addition to the abbess and convent, there are a number of secular canons holding prebends—value 150 marks, which he obtained by exchange with John Colseye (corrected in margin from Robert called Magister hospitii, as originally in text) for a canonry and prebend of Wells, the exchange being made by John, bishop of Salisbury, who had power from Ralph, bishop of Wells. As William doubts whether for certain causes the bishop's collation of the said canonry and prebend holds good, they are to be collated to him whether they be void as above or by the resignation made to the pope of Angelus, cardinal deacon of St. Lucy's in Septem soliis (Sette Sale), or in any other way; notwithstanding that he holds the church of Algarkerke, in the diocese of Lincoln, and canonries and prebends of York and Salisbury, and that the pope has lately ordered provision to be made to him of a canonry and prebend of London then void, the value of all which is 300 marks, and also under date of 5 Id.
