Heugh, Hugh D.D.
a Scotch Presbyterian divine, was born at Stirling Aug. 12, 1782. His father was a minister in the Anti-Burgher party of the Secession Church. The son was educated at the College of Edinburgh, and licensed to preach in 1804. In 1806 he was ordained colleague to his venerable father, on whose death in 1810 he became pastor of the Stirling Church.

(Glasgow, 1826, 8vo): — State of Religion in Geneva and
