an English scholar and writer. He passed B.A. 1723, and was elected fellow shortly after; but he accepted later from the Bishop of Ely a fellowship in St John's College. He commenced M.A. in 1727. In 1730 Bate became moderator of the university, and in 1731 one of the taxers. Bate accompanied Horace Walpole as chaplain when the latter went to Paris as ambassador. Upon his return home he was presented to the good living of St. Paul's, Deptford, in 1731, where he studied hard. He had a solid command of Hebrew, but his research and speculations bore little fruit. He wrote several religious treatises and also occasional sermons.
