(f. 3d.)
To the bishop of Clonfert. Mandate as below. The recent petition of the vicar and friars of Ireland, of the order of hermits of St. Augustine, contained that formerly Matthew Omaan, friar of the said order, with a number of friars of the same order, at the instance of Edraundus Stauriton (sic) and Richard Stauriton, donsels, of the diocese of Tuam, with consent of archbishop Maurice and of Henry, rector of the parish church of St. Mary and Holy Cross in the said diocese, entered and with the said friars inhabited, as he still does, celebrating masses and other divine offices, a certain house of Carmelite friars, which for more than thirty years no Carmelite had inhabited. The petition added that the said Edraundus, whose predecessors and kinsmen had founded the said house for the use and habitation of Carmelite friars, and the said Richard desire that the said Augustinian friars shall in future possess the said house, with its church, bell, cemetery, gardens etc. The pope therefore orders the above bishop, if he find the facts to be so, to grant to the said vicar and friars the necessary licence to receive and retain the said house etc. Sacre religionis.

(f. 7d.)
To the Cistercian abbot of St. Mary's, Heyles, in the diocese of Worcester. Mandate—at the recent petition of the parishioners of the parish church of Dowdiswell in the said diocese, containing that although from time immemorial they have in the said church received and do receive from its rector the sacraments and sacramentals, and therein their ‘last farewell’ when buried elsewhere (inibi corum ultimum vale peregerint et peragant), nevertheless, because the said church is by ancient observance deemed to be subject as daughter church to the parish church of Wythyndon in the same diocese, the said parishioners have been and are accustomed to carry the bodies of those who die in the said parish to the said mother church for burial in its cemetery, paying the mortuaries to its rector; and adding that, the said church of Dowdiswell being a mile and a half distant from the said mother church, the said custom causes them no small expense, they living commonly by cultivating the fields—to license them to erect into a cemetery and have consecrated by a catholic bishop, a certain place, deputed from of old for a cemetery, contiguous to their said church, and cause to be buried therein bodies alike of parishioners of Dowdiswell as of strangers, without prejudice to and saving the right of the said mother church.

To the abbot and convent of the same. Indult—at their recent petition, containing that the perpetual vicarage of the church of Dydebrok in the diocese of Worcester, which church is of their patronage and is appropriated to them, is wont, in accordance with its original institution, to be held by a secular priest, presented by them to the ordinary; and adding that their fruits etc. have by various sinister events been so much diminished that they are insufficient for the sustentation of their twenty-two monks and [their] servants, for hospitality and their other burdens—that on the resignation or death of the present vicar they may in future present a monk of their own. The value of the vicarage does not exceed 4 marks, that of the monastery not exceeding 150. Sacre religionis. (De mandato.)

On the said day, namely, 28 July 1410, Richard Pyttes, canon of York, chancellor of the archbishop, specially appointed by him commissary in the present cause, sitting as a tribunal in the archbishop's chancery in the said castle, received the letters of commission of the archbishop, Quia nuper nos, addressed to Master Richard Pyttes, canon of York, the archbishop's chancellor, and dated in the archbishop's castle of Cawood, 26 July, 1410, the third year of his translation, setting forth that in course of visitation, in the years 1409 and 1410, of his diocese and of the archdeaconries of York, Estrydyng and Clyveland, and the churches etc. of Houeden and Houedenshire, Aluerton and Aluertonshire, he has learned that the prior and convent and chapter of Durham have held, as above, the parish churches of Northaluerton, Estryngton, Gygleswyk, Bossall, Fisschelake and Rodyngton, and yearly pensions from the following churches, namely from the church of Hemyngburgh 5 marks, from that of Brantymgham 10 marks, from that of Welton 3 marks, from that of Walkyngton 100s., from that of Skypwyth 1 mark, from that of Holtby 25s., from the vicarage of Aluceton (sic) 20l., from the church of Siggeston 10 marks, from that of Rungton 40s., and from that of Narmanton (written Normanton in the commissary's article below) 1 mark; and that he has summoned the said prior and convent and chapter to appear before him or his commissary, for which purpose, being unable to be present himself, he appoints as his commissary the said Master Richard.

Upon the said commissary presenting to the said Master John Stanton an article in writing, here exemplified, contesting the right of the prior and convent and college to the above churches, pensions, jurisdictions etc., a copy of which article was requested by the said John and read by him, a term was given to him at which to reply.

Hec indentura protestatur, of which the above proctor inserts a copy, and which is here partially exemplified, made between the late William, sometime archbishop, and the prior and convent with respect to jurisdiction and its exercise in Houeden and Houedenshire, Aluerton and Aluertonshire; and demanded judgment in favour of the prior and convent and college and letters dimissory, which judgment the said chancellor gave by a definitive sentence which he has caused to be drawn up in the form of the present public instrument, and to be subscribed, published and sealed by Master John Welton, clerk, notary public, the said commissary's scribe for the occasion, and to be sealed with archbishop Henry's seal, which sentence was read, delivered and promulgated at Cawood, 26 September, 1410, indiction 4 (sic), the first year of John XXIII, in the presence of, as witnesses, Masters John Wodham, B.C.L., John Gilby, B.C.L., John Belvas, Thomas de Rihale, and Richard Stanton, clerks, notaries public, of the dioceses of York and Lincoln, and was attested, published, sealed and subscribed by the above John Welton, clerk, of the diocese of York, notary public and scribe as above, on the above date.
