    Notes:

    From A Supplement to Notes on Joseph Kellogg (citation details below):

    He was admitted to Winchester College in 1572, he succeeded to a scholarship in New College Oxford 10 March 1574/5 and at the end of two years was admitted a fellow of New. He resigned his fellowship in 1590 in consequence of his presentation to Stockton in Wiltshire. He was ordained by John Pierce, Bishop of Sarum and soon after became domestic chaplain to Thomas Cooper, Bishop of Winchester, who presented him to the Rectory of Stockton.

    He published in 1600 a work with the title "The Trial of Truth" which was dedicated to Henry Lord Bishop of Sarum. He published in 1602 the second part of "The Trial of Truth", dedicated to Dr. Rives, Warden of New College Oxford. The above works can now be found in the library of the British Museum. He also published in 1617 a sermon with the title "The Reasonableness of wise and holy truth; and the absurditie of foolish and wicked Errour" and dedicated to the Right Rev. Father in God, Arthur Lord Bishop of Bath and Wells, Warden of New College Oxford. I now have a copy of this sermon belonging to me. He died on 10 May 1625 of an atrophy, and was buried, by his own request, among the poor in the churchyard of Stockton "as neere the parsonage house as it may conveniently be". The funeral service was read by Thomas Crockford, vicar of Fisherton de la mere, and a sermon was preached by John Antraw, minister of Langford Little. Die veneris 13 May 1625. By his will he gives to the Church Wardens of Long Sutton, where he was born, to them and their successors forever, "one annuitie or yearly rent of twenty six shillings eight pence," "for the poor of Long Sutton, which is due unto me out of a certayne house lyinge in Alton." He also gives to "the Church Wardens of Stockton and their successors forever" certain sums of money, the income of which shall be paid forever to the parish Clerk of Stockton to encourage him to teach the children of the said parish the points of Catechisme established by Authoritie in this kingdom. "Item I gyve unto my brother in law John Whyte, Rector of Dorchester, my two gownds, and to my brother in law Stephen Whyte of Stanton in the County of Oxford gentleman, my best cloake, which two (John and Stephen Whyte) I do by these presents make and constitute the Overseers of this my last will and testament." His will was dated 25 April 1625. The oldest monument in the Chancel of the Church in Stockton is over the Chancel-door on the north wall. It is a mural tablet of black marble enclosed in an alabaster border, with this inscription:

    If men should be silent this stone shall
    speake the due prayses of God's Gra
    -ces in John Terry lately a faythful payn
    -ful vigilant and fruitful minister of God's
    truth in this Church of Stockton. He
    was borne of substantial and religious
    parentage at Long Sutton in Hampshire
    bredde a well deserving membre of Newe
    Colledg in Oxford, freely presented to
    this charge by the Rt Rd Bp of Winton Cos
    -per Ano Dom. MDXC and now in his ripe
    age of LXX. A. D. MDCXXV, May XXX, slee
    -peth happily in the publique ccemeterie
    of this Church, till the last Trumpet
    shall awake him to a joyfull
    ressurection in Christ.
    "He lived, he learned, he wrot, he taught.
    Well, much, truly, duly, he broughte
    Hoame the lost sheep wch Christs bloud bought,
    Against Hell's power he stoutly fought."
    Terrae terra datur, coelum sed spirit' ornat
    Mundus habet famam, lusa Gehenna fremit.
