Bacon, Christopher

Bacon, Christopher an English minister of the Society of Friends, was born in 1623. In his younger life he was a soldier in the king's army. In 1656, while attending a Friends' meeting to which he had gone to ridicule what he might hear and see, he was brought under the power of the Spirit. Subsequently he became a diligent and faithful minister for more than twenty years, visiting in his preaching tours London and many parts of England, also Ireland and Wales; and under his powerful declarations of the truth many were converted. His residence was at Pottery Hill, Somersetshire. He died Oct. 29, 1678. See Piety Promoted, i, 79, 80. (J. C. S.)
