CLEARY, James Vincent, Canadian R. C. bishop, born in Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland, 18 September, 1828. At the age of fifteen he was sent to Rome to be educated for the priesthood, but subsequently he was recalled by the bishop of Waterford and placed in the Royal College of May-nooth. After completing a five years' course there, he was ordained deacon in 1851, and priest in September, 1852, by the bishop of Waterford. Immediately after his ordination he went to Spain and studied for several years at the University of Salamanca. In 1854 he was summoned home by the bishop of Waterford to take the chair of dogmatic theology and scriptural exegesis in St. John's College, Waterford, and in 1873 was appointed president of this College. On 21 November, 1880, he was consecrated bishop of Kingston, Ontario. Bishop Cleary is reputed to be one of the most learned of the Roman Catholic ecclesiastics of Canada.
