Terrick graduated with a BA from Clare College, Cambridge in 1729 and an MA in 1733. He was preacher at the Rolls Chapel from 1736 to 1757, Canon of the fourth stall at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle from 1742 to 1749, and vicar of Twickenham from 1749. He became Bishop of Peterborough in 1757 through the influence of William Cavendish, 4th Duke of Devonshire, briefly Prime Minister. Horace Walpole, who disliked him, said he lacked ability, save "a sonorous delivery and an assiduity of backstairs address". He transferred allegiance to John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute.
