Boece (Boyce, Boys, Etc.), Hector

an eminent Scottish clergyman and historian, was born at Dundee about 1465. He received his early education in his native place, and completed his course of study at the University of Paris, where he took the degree of B.D. He became professor of philosophy in the College of Montaigu, but was called back to Scotland to become principal of the newly founded Kings College at Aberdeen, about 1500. It was a part of his duties in this office to read the divinity lectures. He was at the same time a canon of Aberdeen and rector of Tyrie in the same county. He died at Aberdeen, aged about seventy. His principal works are the lives of the bishops of Aberdeen and a Latin history of Scotland, entitled respectively Vite Episcoporum Murthlacensium et Aberdonensium (Paris, 1522), and Scotorum Historia ab illius Gentis Origine (1526). See Encyclop. Brit. (9th ed), s.v.; Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Authors, s.v. "Boethius."
