Barclay, Henry D.D., was born in 1714, and graduated at Yale in 1734, serving for some years as missionary among the Mohawks. He went to England in 1737 to be ordained, and on his return assumed the charge of the Protestant Episcopal Church at Albany. In 1746 he became rector of Trinity Church, New York, where he remained till his death in 1764. He was made D.D. by the University of Oxford in 1760. Dr. Barclay was zealous and indefatigable, his disposition engaging, and his life most exemplary. — Sprague, Annals, v. 91.
