Carlyle, William, Am

Carlyle, William, A.M.

a Scotch clergyman, descended from the Bridekirk family, took his degree at Edinburgh University in 1715; He was tutor to the sons of Mr. Hay, and afterwards chaplain in the family of lord Elibank; appointed minister at Cummertrees in 1720, and ordained; translated to Lochmaben in 1724; but the admission was set aside by the General Assembly, and he was transferred to Prestonpans the same year. He died March 8, 1765, aged seventy-five years. He was a highly popular preacher orthodox and pious, but had a great relish for amusement. He published a sermon preached at the opening of the synod in 1748. See Fasti Eccles. Scoticanae 1, 352, 353, 615.
