John Hume was the son of Rev. William Hume (1651-1714) of Milton, Devon, and his wife Jane Robertson (d. 1733).[1][2] Hume matriculated at Merton College, Oxford on 31 March 1721, aged 15. He migrated to Corpus Christi College, Oxford, graduating B.A. 1724, M.A. 1727, B.D. & D.D. 1743.[3]


He became a Canon of Westminster (28 June 1742 – 1748)[4] and a Canon of St Paul's Cathedral (30 March 1748 – 1766).[5]

He was rector of Barnes, London from 1749 to 1758; he was appointed Bishop of Bristol in 1756.[6] In 1758 he became Bishop of Oxford and Dean of St Paul's, and in 1766 Bishop of Salisbury and ex officio Chancellor of the Order of the Garter.[7]

He died on 26 June 1782 and was buried in Salisbury Cathedral on 6 July 1782.[8] The monument was sculpted by William Osmond.[9]


He married twice. His first wife Ann died in 1757 without children. His second wife, Lady Mary Hay (d.1805), youngest daughter of George Hay, 8th Earl of Kinnoull.[10] By his second wife he had three daughters.
