To Master Godfrey Bothorn, rector of Hasselt, in the diocese of Liège, papal writer and member of the pope's household. Confirmation of the provision of Hasselt lately made to him by the present pope on its voidance by resignation at the apostolic see, made for the purpose of exchange with Adam [Eston], cardinal priest of St. Cecilia's, for the church of St. Alban's, Cologne; as he now doubts whether it was not in another way that Hasselt became void.

To the bishops of Adria (Adrien.), Ferrara, and Bologna. Mandate, motu proprio, to collate and assign to Adam [Eston], cardinal priest of St. Cecilia's, the Benedictine priory, value 200 gold florins, of St. Agnes, Ferrara, void by the death of Andrew de Avenantibus. (Pro domino Cardinali.)

De Regularibus.

Kal. Oct.
St. Peter's Rome.
(f. 299.)
To the archbishop of York. Mandate, if he find the circumstances to be as stated, to grant licence and otherwise proceed as below. A statement was made to Urban VI. on behalf of Thomas, earl of Nottingham, that the number of the monks in the Benedictine priory of St. Benedict at Kyrkeby, in the diocese of Lichfield, founded and endowed by his progenitors for seven monks, and subjected by them to the monastery of St. Nicholas, Angers, had long been not kept up, and that at the will of a certain knight two monks only resided; that the rule was not observed; that the goods were not expended for pious uses and the priory's rights neglected; that on account of the dissolute life of the prior and French monks living there, and of their servants who were at discord with the English, and on account of the wars between the two realms, the buildings were partially falling; and that the earl desired the priory to be turned to better uses. Urban VI. ordered the bishop of Lichfield to transfer the priory to the Carthusians, and to convert it into a house of that order, due provision being made to the prior and monks, if any. Upon the earl's recent petition, containing that no step has been taken towards the execution of the said mandate, the pope orders the archbishop to grant him licence, upon king Richard's licence being obtained, to found, on his domain in the island of Morholm (sic), in the diocese of Lincoln, a Carthusian house in honour of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin, St. John the Evangelist, St. Edward the Confessor, and all other saints; the archbishop is further ordered to transfer to it the said priory, which is to be separated from St. Nicholas's, and whose name is to be extinguished, and to appropriate to it the churches of Belton and Epeworth, situate in the said island and of the earl's patronage. In the Carthusian house thus founded there are to be a prior and twelve monks.

De Fructibus Percipiendis.
