Other NoteClogie was born in Scotland and was ordained in Kilmore, Ireland in 1636, possibly after studying at Trinity College, Dublin. He was a minister in county Cavan until 1643 when he left Ireland for England. By 1647 he had become minister at Wigmore, Herefordshire. He ministered there until his death, publishing one sermon, "Vox Corvi," and writing a life of Bishop William Bedell, whose stepdaughter had been his first wife, that was only published in 1862.
