To the abbot of Westminster. Mandate—at the petition of Master Richard Derham, canon of Salisbury, papal notary, containing that John Machworth, dean of Lincoln, has despoiled him of his canonry and prebend of Preston in Salisbury, which he had canonically obtained and had held for some time—to summon the parties and hear and decide the cause, without appeal, enforcing his decision by ecclesiastical censure. If he find that citations etc. cannot well be served on John personally, he has hereby faculty to serve them by public edicts in public places in John's neighbourhood, which shall be binding as though personally served. Exhibita nobis. (De mandato pro domino notario.)
8 Kal. April.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 69d.)
To the bishop of Clogher, the abbot of St. Peter's, Armagh, and the dean of Clogher. Mandate to collate and assign to Murianus Mcgillaguib, clerk, of the diocese of Armagh, who has studied canon law for five years in Ireland, the perpetual vicarage of Termancumayn in the said diocese, value not exceeding five marks, void by the death of Patrick Omolgiruga.Vite ac morum.

St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 101.)
To the official of Armagh. Mandate to summon those concerned and to collate and assign to John Nugent, priest, of the diocese of Meath—whose recent petition contained that on the voidance of the parish church of St. Lonanus, Kylwelagh, in the said diocese, by the death of Henry Okelly [cf. below, Reg. CLXIV, f. 228d], the Augustinian prior and convent of Lanthodener in the diocese of Worcester, to whom by ancient custom the presentation belongs, presented him to bishop Robert, by whom he was instituted; that from the molestations of Elias Borlach, clerk, of the diocese of Dublin, he has appealed to the apostolic see; and that he doubts whether the said presentation etc. hold good—the said church, still void as above, value not exceeding 40 marks. Dignum [arbitramur].
1413.
8 Kal. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 126.)
To the bishop of Spoleto, and the precentor and John Olonngayn, canon, of Killaloe. Mandate to collate and assign, as below. Recently on its being set forth to the pope on behalf of Rory (Ruoricus) Ocorbayn, subdeacon, of the diocese of Killaloe, that the perpetual vicarage of Cunky in the said diocese had become void, because the late John Ohalluran had held it for more than a year without having himself ordained priest and without dispensation, the pope ordered provision of it to be made to him —already dispensed by papal authority, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice even with cure—the executors being the dean of Kilmacduagh and two others. Afterwards, as Rory's recent petition contained, Dermit Odonnchuga, dean of Kilmacduagh, proceeding alone, summoned the occupant of the vicarage, Laurence Omelyer, priest, of the said diocese, and by his definitive sentence made collation and provision to Rory, inducting him and imposing perpetual silence on Laurence; notwithstanding which Laurence, with his adherents, in many ways hindered Rory from obtaining peaceable possession, whilst Rory, in order to escape vexation, gave certain small presents to Laurence (ad redimendum vexacionem suam quedam munuscula eidem Laurencio tradidit). Rory's petition adding that he doubts whether he may not therefore be molested in future, and whether the said collation and provision hold good, the pope orders the above three, or one or two of them, to collate and assign to him the said vicarage, still void as above, value not exceeding 8 marks. He is hereby dispensed to hold it notwithstanding his said illegitimacy and the fact of his having given the said presents to Laurence. Vite ac morum. (xiii, residuum pro deo.)
1412.
Id. Sept.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 236.)
To Master James de Camplo, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Nicholas Hill, perpetual vicar of Balirothery in the diocese of Dublin, bachelor of canon law, contained that a cause lately arose between Richard Carran, priest, of the said diocese, and the late William Cam [er] e alias Chambre, clerk, about the archdeaconry of Dublin, upon whose voidance by the free resignation of the late Richard Mynoth to the late archbishop Thomas, William asserted that he received provision of it from the said archbishop by his ordinary authority, which provision Richard opposed, preventing it from taking effect, and asserting, as he still does, that the archdeaconry lawfully belonged to him; that the cause, introduced to the court of Boniface IX, was by that pope committed, at William's instance, to James, bishop of Aquila, then holding the place of a papal auditor; that after the bishop had proceeded short of a conclusion, popes Boniface and Innocent VII dying, and subsequently Angelus Corario, called Gregory XII, and Peter de Luna, called Benedict XIII, being declared schismatics and heretics in the Council of Pisa, and Alexander V dying, the present pope committed the cause to the above Master James; and that before the auditor had taken any further proceedings William died. The pope therefore orders the auditor to surrogate Nicholas to whatever right belonged to William at the time of his death, and further, if he find that William had, and that Richard has, no right, to collate and assign to him the archdeaconry itself, a non-major, non-elective dignity with cure, value not exceeding 100 marks; notwithstanding that Nicholas holds the said vicarage, value not exceeding 26 marks, and that lately the pope made provision to him of a canonry with reservation of a prebend of Dublin, and ordered provision to be made to him of a benefice with or without cure, even if a dignity, not major or principal, personatus or office in the common or several gift of the archbishop of Dublin and the bishop of Meath. Upon obtaining the archdeaconry he is to resign the said vicarage, and the said letters of provision are to be null as far as regards a benefice or office with cure or a dignity or personatus. Litterarum sciencia, Vite etc.
13 Kal. Jan.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 237d.)
To the dean of Ardagh. Mandate as below. Lately Boniface IX ordered provision to be made to Andrew Macclilruaig (sic), [now] perpetual vicar of Kylltacamorca (sic) in the diocese of Ardagh, of one or two benefices with or without cure, wont to be assigned to secular clerks, value not exceeding 40 marks, even if one were a canonry and prebend or a dignity, even major and elective, personatus or office in a cathedral church, in the common or several gift of the bishop and chapter of Ardagh and the Cistercian prioress and convent of Lochscedi in the diocese of Meath, and dispensed him to hold such two incompatible benefices and to resign them, simply or for exchange, and hold instead [two] similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices. Andrew's [recent] petition contained that by virtue thereof he obtained, during the lifetime of pope Boniface, the said vicarage, to which is annexed the chapel without cure of Killrienan, and whose value does not exceed 12 marks, on its becoming void because Murianus Magranyll held it for more than a year without having himself ordained priest and without dispensation, and subsequently the perpetual vicarage of Templemichael (de Templomichaelis) in the said diocese, value not exceeding 6 marks, void by the death of John Yreachdagan; that afterwards, freely resigning Templemichael, he obtained by collation of bishop Adam the perpetual vicarage of Eanachguid in the said diocese, void by the free resignation of Mineas (sic) Mecran (orMeccan), holding it, as he still does, without litigation, together with the said vicarage of Kylltachmurcha (sic) and its said annexed chapel. His petition adding that he doubts whether the collation of the vicarage of Eanachguid holds good, the pope orders the above dean to collate and assign to him the same, still void as above, and value not exceeding 4 marks. Dignum [arbitramur].
3 Kal. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 247.)
To the prior of Dearg in the diocese of Ardagh. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Cornelius Offergail, dean of Ardagh, contained that formerly, on the voidance of the perpetual vicarage of St. Hilary's (Ylarii), Cluaingessi, in the diocese of Ardagh, by the death of Nicholas Mackean he—who had lately received papal dispensation to retain for life the deanery of Ardagh, a major elective dignity with cure, and the perpetual vicarage of Tirfaelan in the said diocese, collation of both of which he had obtained by papal authority, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, and hold instead two similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices—after resigning Tirfaelan, received from bishop Adam collation and provision of St. Hilary's, which he continues to hold with the deanery. His petition adding that he doubts whether the said collation and provision hold good, the pope orders the above prior to collate and assign to him, a priest, of noble race and for some time a student in canon law, upon his showing proof of the said dispensation, the said vicarage of St. Hilary's, still void as above and value not exceeding 12 marks; notwithstanding that he holds the said deanery, to which is annexed the perpetual vicarage of Gleanissiligan in the said diocese, and whose value does not exceed 20 marks. He is hereby dispensed to hold for life the vicarage of St. Hilary's with the deanery. Dignum arbitramur.
2 Id. Aug.
St. Peter's Rome.
(f. 248d.)
To Master John de Thomariis, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate as below. Recently—upon the pope learning that a cause had arisen between Master John Bremor, canon of London, papal secretary and member of the pope's household, and William Rose, priest, of the diocese of London, about the parish church of St. Michael le Querne (ad Bladum), London, John asserting that upon its voidance by the death of Nicholas Buri he had received provision by authority of the ordinary, which provision William opposed, preventing him from obtaining possession, and asserting that the church lawfully belonged to him—the pope at John's instance committed the cause, lawfully introduced to the apostolic see, to the above auditor. The pope now, motu proprio, orders the auditor, if he find that, as some assert, neither John nor William has any right, to collate and assign the church, value not exceeding 60 marks, to John. He hereby, also motu proprio, dispenses John to hold it for life, together with any benefices with or without cure which he holds or expects. Grata dilecti filii. [See above, pp.291, 297 and 300.]
1413.
8 Kal. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 313d.)
To the bishop of Spoleto, and the dean and chancellor of Limerick. Mandate as below. The recent petition of Thady (Tatheus) Oconnuyl contained that formerly he—who lately received papal dispensation, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders, and hold a benefice even with cure—was thereafter made a clerk and obtained and held, as he still does, under letters of collation and further dispensation of Boniface IX, the canonry and prebend of Ardcahny in Limerick, void by the deprivation, made by James, official of Killaloe, under other letters of Boniface IX, of the late Denis Ohachagearna for his faults and demerits; and added that he doubts whether the preceding holds good. The pope therefore orders the above to collate and assign to him the said canonry and prebend, still void as above, value not exceeding 10 marks. He is hereby dispensed, on account of his said illegitimacy, to hold them. Vite ac morum. (x, residuum pro deo.) [See Cal. Papal Lett. V, p. 315.]
