Thomas Cogan (1736-1818) was an English nonconformist physician and Dissenting Minister. He matriculated at Leyden in 1767 and travelled much in Holland. Was wooed and won by a wealthy heiress. He was one of the founders of the Royal Humane Society in 1774. and philosophical writer.
He wrote this, an anonymous account of John Buncle, junior, gentleman, which purported to be a memoir of the youngest son of Thomas Amory’s whimsical creation of John Buncle, by his seventh wife, Miss Dunk.
Pencil note facing titlepage: “Query, Was this written by Thomas Amory 1692-1789? He was son of an Irish Counsellor & published ‘Memoirs’ in 1755 ... has given his valuable commendation to his works. ‘John Buncle’ however appears to have quite a different work to ‘John Buncle Junior’.”
