JEREMY COLLIER (1650-1726), English nonjuring divine, was born at Stow-with-Quy, Cambridgeshire, on the 23rd of September 1650.
In 1712 George Hickes was the only survivor of the nonjuring bishops, and in the next year Collier was consecrated.
The controversy that ensued made a split in the nonjuring communion.
For particulars of Collier's history as a nonjuring bishop, see Thomas Lathbury, A History of the Nonjurors .
As regards French affairs, Talleyrand used his influence to help on the repeal of the vexatious laws against emigres, nonjuring priests, and the royalists of the west.
