Ashworth, Richard

Ashworth, Richard an English Baptist minister, was born at Cloughfold, in the Forest of Rosendale, Lancashire, Oct. 4, 1799. He lost both his parents when a child, and, until his twenty-fourth year, he had no fixed dwelling-place. In 1823 he united with the Baptist Church in Goodshaw; and in 1827 was invited by the Church to engage in the work of the ministry. In the fall of 1828 a Church was formed at Lumb; and March 24, 1831, a new meetinghouse, capable of seating six or seven hundred person-s, was dedicated, the lot of ground on which it was built being given by a benevolent gentleman who was a member of the Established Church. In this. place he labored with success until death removed him, Aug. 19, 1837. See English Baptist Magazine, 1837, p. 207, 208. (J. C. S.)
