Coq John, (Lat. Coquus or Coquius,) was a Frenchman, of the city of Rouen, whom Smalcius describes, in his Diary, as "Homo levior, quam religiosior." He visited the Polish Socinians in 1612, professing himself an inquirer after truth; but having strong Arian prepossessions, he returned as he came. There is no reason, however, to doubt, that he afterwards professed himself a Socinian. He entered into a correspondence with Martin Ruarus about the year 1630; and in the Second Century of Ruarus's Letters, (p. 421,) is inserted the fragment of a very friendly epistle, addressed to him hy Ruarus, in reply to two others written by himself. His personal history is involved in great obscurity; and Bock acknowledges his inability to furnish any account of the place of his residence, or the incidents of his life.
