Bake, Henry an English Congregational minister, was born at Bishop Monkton, near Ripon, Nov. 26, 1800. His early educational advantages were very meagre. He joined the Methodists at the age of fifteen, and soon after became a local preacher. He had strong desires for the stated ministry, and, on his marrying, joined the Congregationalists, began to preach for them, and in 1835 was ordained to the pastorate at Wetherby. In 1842 Mr. Bake entered the town mission work in Leeds, where he preached three years; and then preached successively two years at Wakefield, ten years for the combined churches of Cowick and Polling ton, six years at Malpas, in Cheshire, and six years at Wellington. In 1869 he retired to Stone, where he died, April, 1876. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1877, p. 342.
