  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Ordinary
Ordinary jurisdiction is contrasted with delegated jurisdiction, a temporary communication of power made by a superior to an inferior; thus we speak of a delegated judge and an ordinary judge.
ordinaries, though they have jurisdiction in the internal forum, for they have not jurisdiction in the external forum, being incapable of legislating and acting as judges; their administration is the exercise of paternal authority rather than of jurisdiction properly so called.
In practice, the determination of the persons included under the term ordinary is of importance in the case of indults and the execution of rescripts issued from Rome.

  Ordinary
Parish priests, therefore, are not ordinaries, though they have jurisdiction in the internal forum, for they have not jurisdiction in the external forum, being incapable of legislating and acting as judges; their administration is the exercise of paternal authority rather than of jurisdiction properly so called.
As a rule ordinary jurisdiction is territorial as well as personal, as in the case of the pope and the bishops; but ordinary jurisdiction may be restricted to certain persons, exempt from the local authority.
Local ordinaries being unable personally to perform all acts of their jurisdiction may and even ought to communicate it permanently to certain persons, without however, divesting themselves of their authority; if the duties of these persons are specified and determined by law, they also are ordinaries, but in a restricted and inferior sense.

 Second Council of Lyons - 1274
Local ordinaries must strictly compel their subjects to produce the dispensations by which they hold canonically, as they assert, several dignities or churches to which is annexed the cure of souls, or a parsonage or dignity together with another benefice to which a similar cure is annexed.
The ordinary is however to make provision that neither the care of souls in those churches, parsonages or dignities is neglected nor the benefices themselves are defrauded of the services owing to them.
Ordinaries, moreover, in bestowing parsonages, dignities and other benefices involving the cure of souls, are to take care not to confer one on someone already holding several similar benefices, unless an obviously sufficient dispensation is shown for those already held.

 Historical trends in choice of ordinaries and charges
For recent grants, because ordinaries and charges are far more diverse than tinctures, I needed a larger sample than was used for the earlier study; as well as the sources used previously (the last few years of The Heraldry Gazette and The Coat of Arms) I also drew on The Armorial, vols.
Geometric elements include ordinaries such as the bend, geometric charges such as roundels (bezant, hurt, etc.), and also partitions (cases where a field ­ or an element within the field ­ is party per bend, party per pale, chequy, etc.).
I shall not draw arbitrary distinctions between ordinaries and "sub-ordinaries": I count an ordinary as any element which is defined in purely geometric terms, one or more of whose edges coincide with the edges of the field, and which occupies a minor proportion of the field, creating a "figure versus ground" appearance.
