Lateran Regesta, Vol. CXXIV

2 Innocent VII

De Exhibitis

8 Kal. Feb.
(f. 110d.)
To the bishops of Adria and Kildare and the official of Meath. Mandate to collate and assign to Richard Petir, canon of St. Davids, the parish church of St. Patrick, Trym, in the diocese of Meath, value not exceeding 150 marks, which he obtained by exchange with Walter Burgg for that of Burwell in the diocese of Norwich, the exchange being carried out by Henry, bishop of Norwich, who had power from the late Alexander, bishop of Meath. Richard doubts whether the bishop's collation and provision of St. Patrick's, which, as the pope has learned, is still void as above, holds good. The collation is to be made notwithstanding that Richard holds a canonry and prebend of St. Davids, value not exceeding 15 marks, and that the pope has lately made him provision of a canonry with expectation of a prebend of Chichester. Vite ac morum.
15 Kal. Feb.
(f. 115d.)
To the abbot of Westminster. Mandate to collate and assign to Richard Thorpe, priest, of the diocese of London, if found fit in Latin, the parish church of St. Swithun, London, value not exceeding 50 marks, to which, on its voidance by the free resignation of John Frere to bishop Roger, he was presented by the Augustinian prior and convent of Tortyngton in the diocese of Chichester, to whom the presentation by ancient custom belongs, and instituted by the said bishop. Richard doubts whether the presentation and institution to the said church which, as the pope has learned, is still void as above, hold good. Dignum [arbitramur].
7 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 125d.)
To the bishop of Meath. Mandate as below. Lately, on its being set forth to the pope on the part of Maurice Okynnedy, rector of St. Mary's, Lochseudy, in the diocese of Meath, that on the voidance of the said church by the death of John Okayssy, he obtained it by collation and provision of the late bishop Alexander, by his ordinary authority; that upon his doubting whether the collation and provision of the said church which, as the pope had learned, was still void as above, held good, the pope ordered the bishop of Tuy and two others, their names not being expressed, to collate and assign to him the church, if void as above. Afterwards, as his recent petition contained, Simon Okayssy, clerk, of the said diocese, pretending that provision had been ordered by the apostolic see to be made to him of the said church, void as above, claimed it under pretext thereof, and Maurice, in order to avoid litigation, agreed with Simon that both should assign to the bishop of Meath their letters and muniments, in order that he might examine their respective right, both promising under oath to abide by his decision; against which oath Simon stole the above-mentioned letters which the pope had granted to Maurice, other letters and authentic writings of certain of his friends, and certain other rights and muniments, especially those on which Maurice relied for his case, burning some of them and detaining others, as he still does. The pope therefore orders the bishop to summon Simon and others concerned, and if he find the facts to be as stated, to deprive him of his benefices and remove him, to disable him from holding others, and to compel him to make compensation to Maurice. Dudum pro parte. [See above, p. 35.]

(f. 141.)
To John Newerc, rector of the parish church of Skirkenbeke (sic), in the diocese of York. [Unfinished. Address, salutation and incipit—Vite ac morum h[onestas], only. Uncancelled.]
15 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 185d.)
To Master Marinus de Tocco, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate as below. The recent petition of John Haget, bachelor of canon law, rector of Nymeton Regis, in the diocese of Exeter, contained that a cause lately arose between him and Nicholas, [now bishop] elect of London, about a canonry and prebend of Exeter which John obtained during the lifetime of Boniface IX, on their voidance by the death of Henry Blakbourne, under letters of that pope, which provision Nicholas opposed, despoiling John and taking possession; that pope Boniface committed the cause, at John's instance, to Leonard, [now bishop] elect of Fermo, then papal chaplain and auditor, notwithstanding that the cause had not by its nature devolved to the Roman court; that on the death of pope Boniface, the present pope committed the cause to the above Master Marinus, whilst the cause was pending before whom the pope made provision of the see of London to Nicholas, then, as now, in possession of the said canonry and prebend. Seeing that the right which Nicholas possessed at the time of his said provision is shortly to become void thereby, and by his approaching consecration, the pope orders the above auditor to reserve to the said John, who is a priest and an abbreviator of apostolic letters, the said [bishop] elect's right, if any, to the said canonry and prebend, value not exceeding 6 marks, to surrogate him in respect of such right and make collation and provision to him thereof, and to admit him to the [bishop] elect's possession of the canonry and prebend; notwithstanding that John holds, under letters of the present pope, canonries of Salisbury and Exeter with expectations of prebends and of a dignity, personatus or office, with or without cure, in one of them, and holds the said parish church, whose value does not exceed 30 marks, and that papal provision has lately been made to him of the treasurership of Exeter, value not exceeding 200 marks, possession of which he has not yet obtained. Upon obtaining the said canonry and prebend of Exeter, the said other letters of provision, as far as regards another canonry and prebend of that church only, shall be null. Litterarum sciencia, vite etc.

1 Innocent VII

2 Id. July.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 219.)
To Master Bertrand de Arnassano, papal chaplain and auditor. Mandate as below. The recent petition of John Wytteby, priest, of the diocese of London, contained that a cause arose between John Riddere, priest, of the said diocese, and the late William Stavirton, priest, about the parish church of Chaldewell by the town (villam) of Weysteyllebury, in the said diocese, which William, upon its voidance by the death of John Basset, obtained by authority of the ordinary, and his possession of which was prevented by Riddere. The cause, lawfully introduced to the apostolic see, was committed by Boniface IX, at Riddere's instance, to the above auditor, whose commission has been continued by the present pope. The petition adding that William has died in possession, the pope orders the auditor to surrogate Wytteby in respect of his right, if any, and make collation and provision thereof to him, and to admit him to William's possession of the church. If he find that William had not, and that Riddere has not any right, the auditor is to collate and assign to Wytteby the said church, of the patronage of laymen and value not exceeding 30 marks. Vite etc.
