Rev. Robert Hogg of Roxburgh
« on: Friday 20 May 16 18:41 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Does anyone know where I can get info on the Rev. Robert Hogg, born approx. 1710. He died in Roxburgh in 1787, I believe.  I think he married Mary Hume.  They had six children.

I can't find a birth/baptism for him.  Does anyone know who his parents were?

Any help greatly appreciated.

If he was a minister of the Church of Scotland there will be some biographical information about him in the Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae, the multi-volume biographical dictionary of kirk ministers since the Reformation. It's available to browse online.

The only Robert Hogg born at about the right time in Roxburghshire was baptised on 18th November 1711 in Jedburgh to James Hogg, deacon of the weavers. John Hogg and William Hogg, weavers, were witnesses.

A James Hogg was married at Stitchill & Hume in 1695 but he was a wright, not a weaver.

Thanks, hdw.

I had seen that birth in Jedburgh before, I was just wondering if anyone had any way to confirm that it was right or not.  There is a couple births in Roxburgh a few years earlier that are also possibilities. I was hoping for a way to avoid just 'guessing'.

Nothing is coming up on Ancestry when I search the Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae. Maybe he wasn't Church of Scotland  :(

Where did you find that?? :o

I know it's sometimes hard to find things using Ancestry search... I wanted to browse, but I couldn't see what synod Roxburghshire would be in. 
Could you give a volume/page# so I could look at it if it's online?

Thanks!

Blackwood's Magazine, Vol 10 (page 489) has a register of marriages and deaths that contains the following entry for 1st Oct 1821:
"At Bellaberta, in the county of Berwick, Miss Veronica Hogg, youngest daughter of the late Rev Robert Hogg, minister of Roxburgh, aged 63."

So she would have been born in about 1758. Too much of a coincidence surely?

I have just had a very quick look at ScotlandPeople. All the births to Robert Hogg and Mary Hume come up if you do a search on the spelling 'Hog'. There are also several possibilities for Robert Hog.
