an English Congregational minister, was born in London Sept. 27,1785, and was educated at Hoxton College and the University of Glasgow. His first settlement as a minister was at Uxbridge, where he remained fourteen years. In 1825 he became pastor of the Congregational church at Worcester. In 1855 he was thrown from his carriage, and suffered a nervous shock from which he never recovered. He retired to Edgebaston, near Birmingham, and his congregation at Worcester allowed him £100 per annum. He died May 20, 1860. He was a man of great industry and talent. Faithful in his pastoral work to a remarkable degree, he gave himself largely to literature. He was for some years editor of the Congregational Magazine, and was a frequent contributor to the Eclectic and to the British Quarterly Review. He published, besides a number of minor writings, the Pastor's Sketch-book (12mo): Holy Scripture Verified, the Congregational lecture for 1837 (8vo): Faith Triumphant (1841, 12mo): The Great Change, a treatise on conversion (1843, 18mo): Body and Soul Considered (1847, 8vo): Life of the Rev. W. Jay: Life of the Rev. J. A. James (1860, 12mo). He was made D.D. by Amherst College, and LL.D. by the University of Glasgow in 1834. English Congregational Year book, 1861.
