John Josias Conybeare
He was an accomplished scholar, and studied at Christ Church, Oxford. He became vicar of Batheaston, and was Rawlinsonian Professor of Anglo-Saxon (1808–1812), and afterwards Professor of Poetry (1812–1821), at the University of Oxford.
Like his brother, he was a student of geology and communicated papers to the Annals of Philosophy and the Transactions of the Geological Society of London (Obituary in Ann. Phil. vol. viii., Sept. 1824, p. 162.)
He gave the Bampton Lectures at Oxford in 1824. These were published posthumously (also in 1824) as An attempt to trace the History and ascertain the Limits of the Secondary and Spiritual Interpretation of Scripture.
