After leaving the university he came to London, and in 1706 joined the Baptist Church near Cripplegate, but soon after returned to Lancashire, and devoted himself to the spiritual welfare of the poor of his own native place. He next removed to Bridlington, Yorkshire, where he preached several years with reputation and success, but his zeal against intemperance awakened bitter hostility to him, and he resigned his office. Soon after he was called to London, and was installed March 28, 1734, as pastor of the Church worshipping in Devonshire-square. Here he remained. until his death, July 19, 1748.
