MAKIN, Thomas, poet, born about 1665; died in Pennsylvania in 1733. He was an early settler of Pennsylvania, and in 1689 was usher under George Keith in the Friends' grammar-school, succeeding him as master in 1690. For some time he was clerk of the provincial assembly. He was the author of two Latin poems addressed to James Logan, which were found among his papers at his death. They are entitled "Encomium Pennsylvania," and "In laudes Pennsylvaniae poema, seu descriptio Pennsylvaniae," bearing the dates of 1728 and 1729. The second was published by Robert Proud, with an English translation, in his "History of Pennsylvania" (2 vols., Philadelphia, 1797-'8).
