Randolph, John, DD.
a bishop in the Church of England, was born in 1749. He was the son of Dr. Thomas Randolph, president of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, at which college John was educated. After occupying different academical posts and ecclesiastical preferments, he was, in 1790, raised to the see of Oxford, translated to that of Bangor in 1807, and thence to London in 1811. He performed with zeal and assiduity the duties of his function, and died July 28, 1813. His publications were chiefly occasional sermons and charges, and a Latin praelection on the study of the Greek language. See (Lond.) Annual Register, 1813, page 120.
