To the provost and Thomas Obrind, canon, of Tuam, and Cornelius Odubgilla, canon of Kilmacduagh. Mandate as below. Recently (on its being set forth to the pope on behalf of William Bremugay, priest, of the diocese of Tuam, that he formerly received papal dispensation, as the son of an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all, even holy orders and hold a benefice with or without cure, and subsequently, having been tonsured in virtue of the said dispensation, to hold the archdeaconry of Tuam, by the same letters whereby provision thereof was ordered to be made to him; after which latter dispensation he obtained, collated to him by papal authority, the said archdeaconry and afterwards obtained successively, without other dispensation on account of his said defect, collated to him by authority of the ordinary, the rectories of Dunmor and Ahatnary in the said diocese, all which he held together for eight years against Execrabilis, still detaining the archdeaconry) the pope rehabilitated him, requiring him to resign the archdeaconry. The pope now orders the above three to collate and assign to William, upon his duly resigning, the same, a non-major non-elective dignity, value not exceeding 12 marks, whether it be void as aforesaid, or because John de Burgo, then a secular priest, entered and made his profession as a canon of the Augustinian monastery of St. Mary, Cong, in the said diocese, or in any other way.
