a Scotch clergyman, son of the provost of Aberdeen, took his degree at King's College in that city in 1617; was admitted to the living at Boyndie before 1635, being the first minister of the separated parish. When the army of the Royalists, under Montrose, were plundering the country in 1645, they made spoil of his goods, gear, and books. He was a member of the Commission of Assemblies in 1647 and 1649, and died in February, 1671, aged about seventy-four years. He had four sons, James, John, Patrick, and William, in the ministry. Patrick succeeded him in the benefice. See Fasti Eccles. Scoticanae, 3, 670, 671.
