A James Hogg Society was founded in 1981 to encourage the study of his life and writings. In 1815 the Duke of Buccleuch granted him a small farm at Eltrive Moss where he could live rent-free for his lifetime. In 1810 he moved to Edinburgh to start a literary career.

He is best known today for his novel The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner. As a young man he worked as a James Hoggpherd and farmhand and was largely self-educated through reading.
