Reredos at Collaton St Mary
The reredos in the Collaton St Mary Church was erected by his friends inmemory of John Roughton Hogg
Buried: 6 December 1867 in Collaton St Mary churchyard, Devon, England. The East end of the church is a memorial to John. His widow gave the East window with its three lights portraying Christ carrying the cross, Christ on the cross and St John with the Blessed Virgin Mary. The reredos was erected in his memory by his many friends. It is carved in Caen stone and the design is based on Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of the Last Supper.

Will:
proved 29 February 1868 (Prin Reg., 109, 68), by Anna Maria Maxwell Hogg of Torquay, the relict, the Rev. Lewis Maydwell Hogg of Nice in France, the brother, and the Rev. Edmund Field of Lancing College, Sussex, the Executors.

Notes:
In addition to his clerical duties, John was an astute businessman, and built up a substantial land holding. His wife inherited the magnificent Berry Head House from her father, and John then acquired most of the surrounding land. (The house remained in the family until 1949, when it was sold and converted into the Berry Head Hotel. At this time the surrounding land was given to the people of Torbay as a wildlife park. It is now owned by the National Trust.) John also owned the Blagdon Barton estate, described as one of the most interesting of the smaller medieval "mansions" of Devon, retaining as it does its 14th century hall, screen, etc. The house was remodelled in 1567 and again early in the 18th century. The adjoining farm has tremendous cathedral-like barns and other buildings around a courtyard, as befitted a former estate of more than 1,000 acres.

When John's daughter died in her teens, John and his wife financed the entire cost of building a church at Collaton St Mary and also gave the land for and built the Vicarage and the school, all erected in her memory.

John's diary, spanning the years 1859 to 1862, is held in the Devon Record Office: Torquay Library Collection (ref. 4826 Z/Z 17)

Buried: Collaton St Mary churchyard, Devon, England

Notes:

The church at Collaton St Mary was built by Mary's parents in her memory. Mary had always said that she wanted to build a church when she grew up, so when she died in her teens, her parents built the church in her memory. Though Mary died only at the beginning of 1864, the church was completed and consecrated on Lady Day (March 25th) 1866 by Bishop Spencer of Jamaica and Newfoundland. Mary is buried in the churchyard adjacent to the South wall of the church.
