Mackonochie

Mackonochie, Alexander Heriot (1825-87), born at Fareham, in Hampshire, educated at Bath, Exeter, and Wadham College, Oxford, graduated in 1848, and was ordained the next year. He was curate at Westbury in Wiltshire, and Wantage, in 1858 went to St. George's-in-the-East, and in 1862 became curate-in-charge of St. Alban's, Holborn. From 1867 to 1882 he was frequently prosecuted for alleged excesses in ritual, and in 1882 he resigned his cure to oblige his bishop. When staying at Ballachulish he lost his way in the forest of Mamore, and died from exposure.

“Are you dejected? here is comfort. Are you sinful? here is righteousness. Are you led away with present enjoyments? here you have honours, and pleasures, and all in Christ Jesus. You have a right to common pleasures that others have, and besides them you have interest in others that are everlasting, that shall never fail; so that there is nothing that is dejecting and abasing in man, but there is comfort for it in Christ Jesus.”
–Richard Sibbes, Description of Christ
