Allison, John an English Baptist minister, was born at Craven, Yorkshire, in 1788, and was converted in early life. Soon after his decision to enter the ministry, he pursued a course of preparatory study at the Academy in Bradford, and then settled in a village near that place, where he remained nine years. Subsequently he was pastor at Ogden fifteen years, and at Chapelfold, near Dewsbury, for ten years. His life was a laborious one. He preached three times on the Sabbath, once or twice during the week, and conducted a dayschool for the support of a large family. He died Jan. 17, 1852. See English Baptist Manual, 1852, p. 45, 46.
