Andrew Cant (educator)
He is believed to be the son of the Presbyterian minister and covenanter Andrew Cant (1590–1663). He was a minister of Edinburgh during the reign of Charles II, and consequently is assumed to have been an adherent of Episcopacy.
The same person, or perhaps his son, was deprived of his charge in Edinburgh, at the Revolution, and, on 17 October 1722 was consecrated as one of the bishops of the disestablished Episcopal Church in Scotland. This individual died in 1728.
