Anderson, Patrick an English Congregational minister, was born at Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, in April, 1806. He was blessed with a loving, cheerful, and pious home. He received the elements of a good education in his native town, and in 1820 removed to Aberdeen, and received an academical training at Marischal College. On leaving in 1824, having taken his degree of A.M., he resolved to devote himself to the ministry, and proceeded, after spending a session at the University of Edinburgh, to London, where in 1825 he became a student at Homerton College. After completing his curriculum, he spent a few years at Rudgeley, Staffordshire, supplying the vacant pulpit of the Congregational Church. Mr. Anderson was ordained in April, 1838, to the pastorate of the Congregational Church of New Lanark, on the banks of the Clyde. Here he lived and labored till his death, July 11, 1868. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1869, p. 237.
