Born at Duns, 1817. Brother of foregoing. Studied at the University, Edinburgh, and Divinity Halls, Glasgow and Edinburgh. In 1843 he became secretary of the Ladies’ Society for Female Education in India. Ordained, 1844, missionary to Nagpur. Married Erasma Hull. She came from Olney, the inner circle of the Evangelical school of the eighteenth century, with memories of Cowper, Newton, Carey, etc. Besides unwearying missionary labour Mr. Hislop found time to study the geology of the province in which he was stationed and to make some important and interesting discoveries. He also investigated the condition and history of the aboriginal tribes in Central India, and specially drew public attention to the Gonds, which led ultimately to the establishment of a mission amongst that tribe. In 1854 Mr. Hislop was all but murdered by a riotous mob in Nagpur, who supposed him to be a Government official engaged in removing crown jewels to Calcutta. Mr. Hislop continued at his post during the Mutiny of 1857, and his wife and children only escaped massacre by sheltering behind the cannon on the Seetabuldie Hill. On the 4th September, 1863, Mr. Hislop was drowned while attempting, on horseback, to cross a flooded stream in the dark. A subscription was made for his widow and children, of above £4000, by friends in India and at home.
