Collinson, Septimus, D.D.
an English divine, was born about 1739. He took his degree of M.A. in 1767; in 1796 became provost of Queen's College, Oxford; and in 1798
was elected Margaret professor of divinity there. In his office of professor he labored with unexampled efficiency and zeal. The lectures on the Thirty- nine Articles, which he delivered in that capacity, evinced deep research, sound judgment, and great moderation. Dr. Collinson was a liberal benefactor to all public institutions of acknowledged utility. He died in 1827. See (Lond.) Christian Remembrancer, February 1827, page 128.
