Other NoteBishop of Carlise and rector of St Peter Cornhill. Born 2 February 1661 at Scattergate, Appleby, Westmorland, to John Waugh, yeoman farmer and his wife Margaret. Entered Queen's College, Oxford in January 1679; matriculated 4 April that year; BA, 1684; MA; 1687; made fellow and ordained priest, 1688; proctor, 1695; BD and DD, 1698. Resigned his fellowship in 1698 to become lecturer at St Bride's Church, London and serving at one of the chapels of ease in the parish of St Martin-in-the-Fields. He married the widow Elizabeth Fiddes at St Martin in October 1699. They had four children. In 1704, he was made rector of St Peter Cornhill; a post he held until his death. While he remained in London and performed most of his ecclesiastical duties from St Peter Cornhill, he also gained other preferments: canon of Lincoln in 1718-1720; dean of Gloucester in 1720-1723; and ultimately bishop of Carlisle, 1723-1734. Because of the poverty of the diocese of Carlisle, he was permitted to keep the rectory of St Peter. He died 29 October 1734.
