near Thomastown, in the county of Kilkenny, March 12, 1684, and entered College under Dr. Hall, at the age of 15. After obtaining his Fellowship, he spent a considerable time on the Continent, as appears from various entries in the College Register :-* Nov. 6, 1713, a letter from Her Majesty was read, granting to our trusty and well beloved George Berkeley, one of the Junior Fellows, leave to travel and remain abroad, during the space of two years, for the recovery of his health and his improvement in learning.'"-Coll. Reg. p. 453. This leave of absence was renewed on Nov. 19, 1715, Aug. 17, 1717, May 6, 1719, May 6, 1721. In Sept. 1728, he sailed for Rhode Island, in order to found a Seminary, under the name of St. Paul's College, in Bermuda, for converting the savage Americans to Christianity. The College, by its charter, was to consist of a President and nine Fellows, who were obliged to maintain and educate Indian Scholars at the rate of £10 per annum for each. Dr. Berkeley was named President, and the first three Fellows named in the Charter were the Rev. William Thompson, Jonathan Rogers, and James King, all Fellows of Trinity College, and Masters of Arts in the University of Dublin. The Government of the day made various excuses for not supplying the sum of £20,000, voted by the English House of Commons for this purpose. Sir Robert Walpole, the Prime Minister, when pressed on this subject by Dr. Gibson, Bishop of London, made the following reply "If you put this question to me as a Minister, I must and can assure you, that the money shall most undoubtedly be paid as soon as suits with public convenience; but if you ask me, as a friend, whether Dean Berkeley should continue in America expecting the payment of £20,000, I advise him by all means to return home to Europe, and abandon his present expectations."
Bishop Berkeley's collected works were published after his death, in two volumes, 4to, London, 1784. The dates of a few of them are subjoined :-“ Arithmetica absque Algebra aut Euclide demonstrata" (written before the author was twenty years old), 1707. " Theory of Vision," 1709. " Principles of Human Knowledge," 1710. Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous” (containing a Defence of his celebrated system of immaterialism), 1713. “The Analyst," 1734. "Siris," 174.
His reinains were interred at Christ Church, Oxford, and a marble monument, with an inscription by Dr. Markham, Archbishop of York, erected to his memory. Pope's eulogy on his character is well known :
"To Berkeley every virtue under heaven.” A writer and preacher of considerable eminence. A list of his works is given in Watts Biblioth. Brit.
Removed for not taking Holy Orders, May 26, 1713.
Monday, June 17, 1728, Dr. Elwood presented to the Provost and Senior Fellows the following
power, sent him from England by Dr. Clayton :-*Str. - I hereby desire and empower you to make a resignation of my Fellowship to the Provost and Fellows of Trinity College, Dublin, on the Monday following Trinity Sunday next, which is the day appointed for my marriage.---ROBERT CLAYTON."--Cou. Reg. p. 557.
. This arose from a Student having been punished for defending the murder of Charles I., which the Government (then Whigs)
conceived to be a proof of the Jacobitism of the College, and therefore inhibited all elections for that year.
