Rev Dr David Bogue DD (18 February 1750 – 25 October 1825) was a British nonconformist leader.


He was born at Hallydown Farm, in the parish of Coldingham, Berwickshire, Scotland, the son of John Bogue, farmer, and his wife, Margaret Swanston. He received his early education in Eyemouth.[1]

After studying Divinity at Edinburgh University, he was licensed to preach by the Church of Scotland, but, failing to find a patron, made his way to London in 1771, to teach in schools at Edmonton, Hampstead and then Mansion House Cottage in Camberwell. In 1777, he settled as minister of the independent Congregational church at Gosport in Hampshire.[2] His predecessors at the Independent Chapel of Gosport were the Rev. James Watson (1770–76) and the Rev. Thomas Williams (1750–70).[3]

In 1771 he established an institution for preparing men for the ministry.[4][5] It was the age of the new-born missionary enterprise, and Bogue's academy was largely the seed from which the London Missionary Society grew.[6] In 1800 the society placed missionaries with Bogue for preparation for their ministries.[7] Bogue himself would have gone to India in 1796 if not for the opposition of the East India Company.[6] In 1824 he taught Samuel Dyer at Gosport before he left for Penang as a missionary with the London Missionary Society.[4]

He was also involved in founding the British and Foreign Bible Society and the Religious Tract Society, and in conjunction with James Bennett, minister at Romsey, wrote a well-known History of Dissenters (3 vols., 1809). Another of his writings was an Essay on the Divine Authority of the New Testament.[6]

In 1815 Yale University awarded him a doctor of divinity (DD).

He died on 25 October 1825 in Brighton during the London Missionary Society's annual tour.[4]
