Arundel, John an English Congregational minister, was born at Selby, Yorkshire, Dec. 10, 1778. He was introduced to business at the age of eleven, and converted at sixteen. In 1799 he began to study for the ministry, and in 1800 entered Rotherham College. His first charge was at Whitby, where he was ordained July 12, 1804, and in which he remained fifteen years. In 1819 he became the home secretary of the London Missionary Society; and in 1822 he accepted the pastorate of the Congregational Church in Union Street, Borough, which he held jointly with his secretaryship. In this Church he ministered with great efficiency for more than twenty years, when he was compelled, through protracted indisposition, to resign his charge; and in 1845 he retired from his office in the Mission-house. He died March 5, 1848. Mr. Arundel was an humble Christian, a faithful friend, a practical preacher, a devoted pastor, and a zealous officer of the society with which he was so long identified.
