  • Notes 
    • Was born in Scotland in 1705, was ordained for the ministry, and came to Virginia in 1725, where he was given charge of St. Anne's parish, Essex county. In 1746 he had charge of St. Anne's parish, Nelson county. He was a remarkably active and zealous preacher and man of affairs. His journal shows that he was a kind of universal genius. When the city of Richmond was to be laid out, he was invited to lend his counsel. While thus engaged he sickened and died, and was buried in the yard of St. John's Church. He died June 30, 1751, in his forty-seventh year, and his tombstone testifies to "his extraordinary genius and capacity in all the polite and useful arts of life." He had four brothers in Virginia, one of whom was Rev. Charles Rose, of Cople parish, Westmoreland county. He had four sons--Hugh, Patrick, Henry and Charles--who have left numerous descendants.
