an English classical scholar. Falconer published ‘Devotions for the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper, by a Layman,’ London, 1786; 2nd ed. 1798. He read in 1791 before the Society of Antiquaries a paper in vindication of the accuracy of Pliny's description of the temple of Diana at Ephesus. A work by him entitled ‘Chronological Tables, beginning with the Reign of Solomon and ending with the Death of Alexander the Great,’ appeared at Oxford in 1796, edited by Frodsham Hodson. He also left materials for an edition of Strabo, which formed the basis of the edition brought out in 1807 by his nephew Thomas Falconer, M.D. He was also the author of an ‘Ode to Sleep,’ the date of publication of which is uncertain.
