Chalmers, John (7), Dd

Chalmers, John (7), D.D.

a Scotch clergyman, son of the minister at Elie, was licensed to preach in 1737; called to the living at Elie in 1738, in succession to his father, and ordained. He was transferred to Kilconquhar in 1760, though his settlement was the subject of a long debate in the General Assembly. He died April 7, 1791, in his eightieth year. He was superior to many for ancient learning, but his usefulness was marred by a species of buffoonery, which excited much prejudice against him. See Fasti Eccles. Scoticanae, 2, 425, 438.
