Brady, Nicolas, Dd
Brady, Nicolas, D.D.
an English divine, was born Oct. 28th, 1659, at Bandon, Ireland. He graduated at Trinity College, Dublin, and was appointed chaplain to Bishop Wettenhall, by whose patronage he obtained a prebend in the Cathedral of Cork. On the establishment of William and Mary he was deputed to present to the English Parliament a petition for redress of grievances; and, remaining in London, he became minister of the church of St. Catharine Cree, and lecturer of St. Michael's, in Wood Street. He died May 20,1726, the same year in which he published by subscription his Translation of the AEneid of Virgil (4 vols. 8vo), which is now almost entirely unknown. But the reputation of Dr. Brady rests solely upon his share in the Metrical Version of the Psalms, known as Tate and Brady's, of the merits or demerits of which every one who possesses an English Prayerbook may judge for himself.
