Fawcett, Benjamin an English dissenting minister, was born at Sleaford, Lincolnshire, in 1715, and died in 1780. He was a pupil of Dr. Doddridge at Northampton, and preached first at Taunton, and then at Kidderminster, where he was pastor of a congregation of Dissenters for 35 years. He was a strict economist of time, and attributed his uninterrupted goad health to his temperate mode of life and the habit of early rising. His works are, Sermons (1756-80), an abridgment of Baxter's Saints' Everlasting Rest, and Religious Melancholy (1780, 8eo).-Rose, New Gen. Biog. Dict.; Allibone, Dict. of Authors.
