Andrews, John (3), Dd
Andrews, John (3), D.D., a Unitarian minister, was born at Hingham, Mass., March 3,1764. He graduated from Harvard University in 1786, and afterwards studied theology at Cambridge. He then accepted a call to settle as assistant pastor over the First Church at Newburyport, and was ordained Dec. 10, 1788. In 1808, when the senior pastor died, Mr. Andrews took sole charge of the parish, and labored therein until May 1, 1830, when he resigned his office. After his resignation he preached occasionally to one or two societies in the vicinity of Newburyport. He died Aug. 17, 1845. Dr. Andrews, while not a great man, was emphatically a good man. His life was a beautiful exhibition of the Christian graces. As a preacher he was eloquent and practical. He was called upon to deliver the Dudleian Lecture and to. preach several occasional. discourses, which were published. For fifty years he was a trustee, and for half that time the treasurer, of Dummer Academy. He was also one of the delegates from Newburyport in the convention for revising the constitution of his state. See (Boston) Christian Examiner, 1846, p. 24.
