Quick Reference

Thomas Innes was born in Drumgask, Aberdeenshire, and died in Paris. A Catholic priest and historian, he studied in Paris at the College of Navarre and the Scots College, taking orders as a priest in 1691. He continued his association with the Scots College throughout his life, teaching there, and becoming Vice-Principal in 1727. His most important work was A Critical Essay on the Ancient Inhabitants of the Northern Parts of Britain or Scotland (1729), which occasioned several further publications criticizing his views.
