Skogan (Henry).
 
A poet in the reign of Henry IV. Justice Shallow says he saw Sir John Falstaff, when he was a boy, “break Skogan’s head at the court gate, when he [Sir John] was a crack [child] not thus high.” (2 Henry IV., iii. 2.)   1
       
“Scogan? What was he?
       
Oh, a fine gentleman, and a master of arts
Of Henry the Fourth’s times, that made disguises
For the king’s sons, and writ in ballad royal
Daintily well.”
       
Ben Jonson: The Fortunate Isles (1626).
   John Skogan. The favourite buffoon of the court of King Edward IV. Scogin’s Jests were published by Andrew Borde, a physician, in the reign of Henry VIII.   2
