To the bishops of Oloron and Ferns, and the archdeacon of Waterford. Mandate to collate and assign to Nicholas Alhart, priest, of the diocese of Ossory, the treasurership of Ferns, a non-major and non-elective dignity with cure, value not exceeding 20 marks, void by the death of Nicholas Brounde; notwithstanding that he is litigating in the apostolic palace about the free chapel without cure of St. Mary, Benetisbrig, in the said diocese, of which he has not possession, value not exceeding 30 marks. Vite ac morum. (Pro deo.)
(f. 69d.)
To the bishops of Todi and Cloyne and the prior of Glasargi in the diocese of Ferns. Mandate to collate and assign to Augustine Macbradaich, perpetual vicar of the parish church of Dreng and Leachtrach in the diocese of Kilmore, at the petition of Landulph, cardinal deacon of St. Nicholas's in Carcere Tuliano, of whose household he is a member, the treasurership of Ferns, value not exceeding 20 marks, void by the death of Nicholas Broude, even if it have cure, be a dignity, not major, and be elective; notwithstanding that he holds the said vicarage, value not exceeding 10 marks, and that he lately had provision by papal authority of the archdeaconry of Elphin, also a nonmajor dignity, value not exceeding 60 marks, about which he is litigating in the apostolic palace, and that provision was by the same authority ordered to be made to him of the benefice without cure, called the rectory, value not exceeding 14 marks, of the parish (plebis) of Telachgarve and four other townlands (villatarum) in the said diocese of Kilmore, of which he has not possession. He is hereby dispensed to hold the treasurership with the said vicarage and archdeaconry for three years, and, resigning one of them during that term, to retain the other two thereafter and for life, and to resign them, simply or for exchange, and hold instead, likewise for life, two similar or dissimilar incompatible benefices. Within the said three years he is to exchange one of the said three for a benefice compatible with the remaining two; otherwise, he is to resign the vicarage. Further, to the end that these presents may take full effect, the pope declares his intention to have been and to be to grant the said treasurership to Augustine alone and to none other, and if he happen to have this day made provision, or ordered or granted provision to be made to other or others, he annuls such provisions, mandates and grants. Vite etc. [Without the usual terminal subscription. The date is altered in the margin from October to September.]

De Exhibitis

7 Id. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 228d.)
To the bishop of Lucera, the prior of St. Peter's, Newtown (de Novavilla) by Tryn in the diocese of Meath, and the official of Dublin. Mandate as below. The petition of Elias Borlach, rector of the parish church of [St. Lonanus], Kilwelach, in the diocese of Meath, contained that although he accepted, and provision was canonically made to him of, the said church, under papal letters, on its voidance by the death of Nicholas Rede [cf. above, p. 367], John Nugent, priest, of the said diocese, asserting that the church belonged to him, has prevented and still prevents the said acceptance and provision from taking effect, detaining possession and taking the fruits, on account of which Elias appealed to the apostolic see; that the pope, at the instance of Elias, committed the appeal and the principal matter to Master Henry Fleckel, papal chaplain and auditor—who, at the instance of Master John de Scrivanis, Elias's proctor, cited Nugent, who did not appear— and then to Master John de Thomariis of Bologna, papal chaplain and auditor, who also cited Nugent, and upon his remaining contumacious, declared that the said acceptance and provision were canonical and ought to have taken and to take effect, adjudged the church to Elias, removing Nugent and putting Elias in possession, and condemned Nugent in fruits taken and costs, which costs he afterwards assessed at 32 gold florins of the camera. The said petition adding that Elias doubts whether others may have intruded or may intrude themselves, the pope hereby confirms the said sentence and orders the above to execute it, inducting Elias and removing Nugent, and to execute it equally against such intruders as far only as regards possession of the church, proceeding by ecclesiastical censure and invoking the secular arm. They have faculty to publish citations etc. in public places near the said church, which shall have force as though personally served.Exhibita nobis. (Gratis pro deo.) [4½ pp.]
12 Kal. Feb.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 231d.)
To the bishop of Spoleto, the abbot of Rathtuoyg in the diocese of Ardfert, and the archdeacon of Ardfert. Mandate to collate and assign to Philip Odwynychayn, deacon, canon of Ardfert, the still void perpetual vicarage of Kylthome in the said diocese, value not exceeding 5 marks, which he obtained by collation of bishop Nicholas on the resignation, made to that bishop, of John Stephani. He doubts whether the said collation holds good. The collation is to be made notwithstanding that he holds the rectory, without cure, in ecclesiastical fee, of the said parish church, and the canonry and prebend of Gleanardella in Ardfert, value not exceeding 1 mark each, united for his life. Vite etcExhibita siquidem nobis.
