Jago, Richard

(1715-1781)
   The son of a clergyman, of Cornish stock, he was born at Beaudesert, Warwickshire, and educated at Solihull, West Midlands. He graduated from University College, Oxford, in 1736, was ordained in 1737 and soon had three livings in Warwickshire, which he retained until 1771, when he moved to the more valuable rectory of Kimcote in Leicestershire. He died at Snitherfield, Warwickshire, and was buried in a vault which he had constructed for his family under the middle aisle of the church. He published several sermons and Labor and Genius: A Fable (1768). Two of his poetry publications: The Blackbirds, 1753 (an elegy, which was set to music by the organist of Worcester Cathedral), and Edge Hill, or the Rural Prospect delineated and moralized, 1767 (a poem in four books). Some of his poems: "Absence," "Adam; an Oratorio," (compiled from Paradise Lost), "Elegy on the Goldfinches," "Female Empire. A True History," "Hamlet's Soliloquy Imitated," "Labour, and Genius: Or, the Mill-Stream, and the Cascade," "The Scavengers. A Town Eclogue," "The Swallows," "Valentine's Day."
