Clannie, Hugh

Clannie, Hugh a Scotch clergyman, took his degree at Edinburgh University in 1675; was called to the living at Kirkbean in 1687, and ordained; was a member of the assemblies of 1690 and 1692, and deposed in 1696 for drunkenness. He was banished in 1713 for marrying persons irregularly. He afterwards joined the "Levellers," a party which arose in Galway, in 1724, to take the government into their own hands, and he, being the only learned person among them, was employed to draw up their papers. He published, in 1698, in Latin, an account of his party. There is no further record of him. See Fasti Eccles. Scoticanae, 1:584.
