INDEX TO THE OBITUARIES OF UNITARIAN
MINISTERS 1800 - 1899

Introduction

This listing takes back to 1800 the Index published in the Transactions (TUHS) in April 2000; further indexes 1850-1899 and 1800-1849 were published as supplements to the Transactions April 2006 and April 2007 issues respectively and cover those ministers for whom there are published obituaries in the period 1800-1899. The TUHS April 2005 issue included a supplement which made corrections and additions to the twentieth century Index and extended its coverage to the end of 2004. All the Indexes have been brought together and been updated to appear on the Unitarian Historical Society website.

The appearance of these Indexes provides researchers with the means of tracing the overwhelming majority of Unitarian ministers (or those who ministered in the earlier period in what became Unitarian churches) who died between 1800 and 2004. My researches in this area are now complete, though corrections and updates will be issued from time to time.

The obituaries shown in this present Index relate to recognised ministers whose names appear in Unitarian and related journals and newspapers, and a variety of histories and source books. The majority up to 1850 come from the Monthly Repository (1806-1832) and the Christian Reformer (from 1815).

The problem of definition arises in this period 1800-1849 which is missing from the later obituary indexes. The question is - who are identifiable as Unitarian ministers? The simple answer after 1849 is that their name generally appears in a centrally published list. Before 1850 it has been necessary to make a simple rule for admission - were individuals the ministers of churches or chapels recognised as Unitarian on contemporary (or later) lists published in journals and denominational year books? This rule removes the need to determine individual theological belief. However those who are stated to have been Arian, or with distinct doubts on the validity of the trinity, have been included while those said to have been Calvinist or similar have generally been excluded. The theological views of many in this Index are unknown; in cases of doubt they have been included. The precise location of congregations can, in the main, be obtained from later denominational Year Books, or determined from George Eyre Evans, Vestiges of Protestant Dissent, Liverpool, 1897.

The obituaries post 1850 relate to recognised Unitarian ministers whose names appear in the Unitarian Almanac (from 1850), the annual Essex Hall Year Book (from 1890), and references in various newspapers, journals and other works of deaths occurring between 1 January 1850 and 31 December 1899. The majority had obituary notices in the Inquirer, the Christian Life or the Unitarian Herald.

Because of the nature of the Unitarian ministry in the second half of the nineteenth century, there are numerous men who served as ministers for a short period but then disappeared from the denominational scene. Some but by no means all of these have been included. While the Unitarian Almanac, which first appeared in 1847, does provide an ‘approved’ list, the reasons for inclusion or no-inclusion of specific individuals is not always clear. The first clear systematic listing appears in the Essex Hall Year Book in 1890. Various periods served by ministers in lay charge of congregations have not been included, nor the names of those ministers whose training and service as ministers was entirely outside Britain and Ireland. The precise location of congregations can be obtained from contemporary Year Books.

There are families of Unitarian ministers, with fathers, sons and brothers whose family connection may appear obvious. However relationships have only been included here when clearly stated in contemporary records. For the first time information of probated wills left by ministers registered in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury and related courts has been included which can provide valuable additional information, especially for the family historian. This information has been obtained from the National Archives web site, and it’s possible that some names listed here may have left a will proved in this Court but which have not been noticed. Of course other ministers may have left wills proved in other local courts which have not yet been included on a web site listing.

Arrangement of entries

The structure of each entry consists of:

Abbreviations

The following abbreviations of names and sources are used:

* with date - Essex Hall Year Book 1890- 1928.

Titles of other Colleges or Universities where individual ministers were educated, mainly non Unitarian, are given in full, for example Glasgow refers to the University of Glasgow. The lack of a college reference means that no evidence has been found that the person attended a theological training college or institution. The record of service in the Unitarian ministry only is recorded; start and finish dates are given but not gaps in service except where it was of a long duration. Details of ministerial service in other denominations is not shown though the denomination in which it took place is recorded, e.g. “Cong” for service as a Congregational minister but other denominations are shown in full.

Not all the sources have been quoted here; these should be checked with for example the Johnson Index at HMC, as obituaries in other works or journals could contain fresh information. Where the term ‘et seq’ appears it means there are numerous entries for the person appearing in that journal and all have not been shown. Where a specific item of information is missing like date of birth or age at death, this means I have been unable to locate it. Additional details for some names can be found by using a search engine on the world wide web. For example additional detail on Eli Fay was found on the Fay family web site and this is not an isolated example.

Sources

The main sources used in compiling the indexes are listed below. The first acronym to appear is that which is contained in the Index, for example ‘Surman’ refers to the CE Surman Index of Dissenting Ministers. Where no acronymn appears the source has been used as a finding tool and is not directly quoted.

For the identification of students who attended the key Academies at Warrington and Daventry, see W Turner, Warrington Academy 1757-1786 (from the Monthly Repository 1813-1815), republished in Warrington 1957.

Monthly Repository 1822, pages 163-164, 195-198, 284-287 (list of students at Daventry Academy). For background on the eighteenth century academies, see H McLachlan, English Education under the Test Acts, being the history of the Nonconformist Academies 1662-1820, Manchester University Press, 1931. The list of deceased Unitarian ministers compiled by Professor R K Webb has also been used which was kindly made it available to me in draft form. Where no obituary reference has been found but Professor Webb’s list provides a place and date of death, this entry has been included but annotated with ‘RKW List’. Other published sources used are shown in the body of the text. Details were obtained from a variety of sources, correspondents, and the public indexes held at the Family Record Centre, London for the period after 1837.

Researchers seeking further detail should consult the sources quoted in each entry. It is not possible to respond to genealogical or similar queries arising out of the index; what is here is all that I have. Some entries do not show a date of death. These have been included where a ministry of about five years and over has been identified and the person is likely to have been Unitarian.

Libraries and Repositories

The majority of journals and works cited in the Index can be seen at Dr Williams’s Library, 14 Gordon Square London WC1 OAA. Other places where most of these sources are held, at least in part, are Harris Manchester College, Mansfield Road, Oxford OX1 3TD and the John Rylands University Library of Manchester (Special Collections), Deansgate, Manchester, M3 3EH, both specialist libraries with manuscript repositories in the history of dissent. The British Library has runs of many journals but some newspaper holdings were lost during World War 2. The public reference libraries in Manchester and Birmingham have significant holdings and other City Reference Libraries have local strengths. In the USA, the Andover Harvard Theological Library at Cambridge Mass has significant holdings of British Unitarian material. The General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches at Essex Hall, Essex Street in London does not hold historic records, nor does the Unitarian Historical Society. The research institutions mentioned here have a web site through which first contact is best made.

Errors

In such a large compilation using numerous sources errors will occur. These Indexes should be used as a finding tool and the springboard for further research. When an entry is being relied upon as the basis of a detailed research project then the basic facts should always be checked. Where variant sources show different dates of birth or death, or even of place, then what has been included is that appears to me to be the most likely; the variations are chiefly of a short period, not of the year the event took place. It’s difficult to determine the precise year of birth when, for example, a reference states that the minister died in their 73rd year. This has been taken to mean aged 72 but sources can be inconsistent, particularly in the early nineteenth century; the writer or correspondent could also mean aged 73. When the exact date of birth is not shown then the age at death contained in the obituary has been used.

Additional information needed

Numerous entries show gaps in detail, and there may be names missed from the list. Those readers holding additional information are invited to contact me at 41 Hampermill Lane, Oxhey, Watford, Herts, WD19 4NS. alanruston@btinternet.com with the reference in published or publicly available sources; these additions will be much appreciated. Please also send details of errors, with details of supporting sources, and these will be corrected. A list of amendments and additions will be published in a later issue of Transactions and the website will be updated.

Conclusion

I wish to express my thanks to those who have helped me with the creation of this Index. My wife Rosemary gave considerable help with the task of proof reading and correction of inconsistencies and errors.

The Index records the distinguished contribution made by Unitarian ministers to British life in that there are numerous ministers in this Index with an entry, sub entry or reference, in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, and, reflecting the strong role that Welsh people have played within the Unitarian movement, a similar large number appear in the Dictionary of Welsh Biography.

Printed copies of the two parts of this Index, as well as that covering the twentieth century, can be obtained from me at the address given above, price £4.50 including postage each.
