Ball, William Spencer

Ball, William Spencer an English Congregational minister, was born in London, Oct. 16, 1815, of pious parents. He was converted when about seventeen, and shortly afterwards began to preach in Banbury. In 1843 Mr. Ball began a two years' course at Cotton End, after which he preached two years at Cadman, Hampshire; four years at Stainland, Yorkshire; and four years at Newton-le-Willows, where he died, Feb. 6, 1861. Mr. Ball was unassuming in manner, clear in judgment, deep, earnest, and unaffected in piety. He reached men's hearts by the force of his Christian character; and, although his preaching had in it nothing dazzling, his ministry was eminently successful. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1861, p. 221.
