Rundle, Thomas, Lld

Rundle, Thomas, LL.D., an English prelate, was born in the parish of Milton Abbot, Devonshire, about 1686. In 1702 he entered Exeter College, Oxford, and was introduced to Mr. Edward Talbot, son of Dr. William Talbot, bishop of Oxford — an event of great importance, as it secured to him the friendship and patronage of the Talbot family. He was ordained by bishop Talbot in 1718, in 1720 was made archdeacon of Wilts, and in the same year was constituted treasurer of the church of Sarum. On Jan. 23, 1721, he was collated to the first stall in Durham Cathedral, but on Nov. 12 in the following year was removed to the twelfth prebend. He had also the mastership of Sherburne Hospital (July 5. 1723), and became associate chaplain at the palace in Durham. He was consecrated bishop of Derry, in Ireland, February, 1734 (or 1735), and died at his palace in Dublin, April 14, 1743. Of his works we have nothing except four Sermons (1734-36), and The Letters of the Late Thomas Rundle to Mrs. Barba Sandys (Oxf. 1790, 2 vols. 12mo). See Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer.
