16th Century

Marckant was Incumbent of Clacton Magna (now Great Clacton), Essex (1559) & Shopland (apparently near Southend-on-Sea, Essex) (1563-68), England. He wrote only few small pieces: a political poem on Lord Wentworth (1558-59); a New Year’s gift entitled With Speed Return to God; and Verses to Divers Good Purposes (circa 1580). He also contributed four entries to the metrical version of the Psalms known as the Old Version.
