Eusden, Laurence (1688–1730), poet, was baptized on 6 September 1688, at Spofforth, Yorkshire, where his father, Laurence Eusden (d. 1699), was rector. He went to St Peter's School, York, and was admitted as pensioner (aged sixteen) at Trinity College, Cambridge, on 24 March 1705. He graduated BA in 1708, MA in 1712. On 2 April 1706 he became a scholar of his college, was admitted as a minor fellow on 2 October 1711, and advanced to a full fellowship on 2 July 1712. He became third sublector on 2 October 1712, and a year later was admitted as second sublector. He drew no stipend after 1720, but continued at least occasionally in residence until 1725....
