Young, Patrick

Young, Patrick (Lat. Patricius Junius), a noted English clergyman and scholar, was born at Seton, in East Lothian, Scotland, Aug. 29, 1584. He was educated at the University of St. Andrews, where he took the degree of A.M. in 1603. In 1605 he was incorporated A.M. at Oxford, took deacon's orders, and became chaplain of New College. He went to London afterwards; was granted a pension of £50 a year; and, made keeper of the library of king James. In 1617 he went on to France and other neighboring countries, where he attracted. great attention on account of his learning. He was subsequently presented to the rectories of Haves and Lanrhian. In 1649 he retired to Bromfield, in Essex, where he lived, with his son-in-law. Mr. Atwood; and died Sept. 7, 1652. His great scholarship is not adequately represented by his literary remains, fir he is said to have been indolent and undesirous of literary fame. He assisted Thomas Reid in translating into Latin the works of king James; made some notes on the Alexandrine MS. of the Bible (extending down to Numbers 15), which are published in Walton's Polyglot Bible, vol. 6 under the title Patricii Junii Annotationes quas Paraverat ad MS. Alexandrinzi, etc.: — published in 1633 an edition of the Epistles of Clemens Romanus, from the same MS., which may be found in vol. 1 of the Sacrosancta Coneilia of Labbae and Cossart: — and in 1638, published an Exposition of Solomon's Song, written by Gilbert Foliot, bishop of London in the time of Henry II. His Life has been written by Sir Thomas Smith (rabbi Smith). See Chalmers, Biog. Dict. s.v.; Knight, Engl. Cyclop. Biog. s.v.; Allibone, Dict. of Brit and Amer. Authors s.v.
