Bailey, William (1)

Bailey, William (1), an English Baptist minister, was born at Bourton, Gloucestershire, May 18, 1771. After having worked at a trade for some time, he removed to Gosport, where he was converted under the ministry of Rev. David Bogue. Subsequently he took up his residence in London, where he was baptized Oct. 9, 1796. His first membership was with an Independent Church in Windsor, to which place he had removed. He joined a Baptist Church in Datchet in 1811, and soon after was appointed a deacon, and was licensed to preach. The pastor being laid aside, he supplied the pulpit for four years, and at length was ordained. He now relinquished his business and devoted himself solely to his ministerial work. His pastorate with the Church at Datchet continued from August, 1819, to the close of 1843, when, on account of the infirmities of age, he resigned. His death took place June 30, 1844. See (Lond.) Bapt. Handb., 1845, p. 41. (J. C. S.)
