Their recent petition contained that the said abbot made the appropriation, and added that they took possession on voidance in a certain way, the said portion being reserved, and that they are still in possession, but that they fear lest the appropriation be comprehended under pope Boniface's general annulment made on 11 Kal.

V, p. 599] of appropriations, and lest they be molested by Alexander Colewe (or Colowe or Colebre or Colobre), priest, of the said diocese, who is said to have impetrated the church from the apostolic see as void under the said annulment. The pope therefore confirms the appropriation, and grants that it shall hold good from the date of pope Boniface's letters, even if the said Alexander have had such papal provision. Ad perp, rei mem.
