Lyscartan
V 444-448 To the archbishop of Armagh, primate of Ireland, the bishop of Telese, and Adam Naas, canon of Dublin. Mandate to collate and assign to John Taaf, rector of Kylskyr in the diocese of Meath, B.C.L., the still void canonry and prebend of Howth in Dublin, value not exceeding 80 marks, which, on their voidance by the death of Walter Brugge, he accepted, and of which he obtained provision, under a late mandate of the pope ordering provision to be made to him of a canonry of Dublin with expectation of a prebend, as he doubts whether his acceptance and provision hold good; notwithstanding that he holds the said church and the free chapel of Lyscartan in the diocese of Meath, value together not exceeding 70 marks, and that the pope lately ordered provision to be made him of a canonry with expectation of a prebend of Ferns. Upon his obtaining the canonry and prebend of Howth under these presents, the said letters by which he accepted and obtained provision shall be null and void. Litt
