Barbauld, Rochemont

Barbauld, Rochemont an English dissenting minister, was born of French parents in England in 1748. He received the rudiments of his education at home; was intended by his father for the Church of England, though educated at the Dissenting Academy at Warrington to avoid the expense, and hazard to the morals, of a university education, and in 1773 entered the Dissenting-ministry at Highgate, where he preached about a year. In the year following he removed to Palgrave, Suffolk, and took charge of a neighboring congregation of Dissenters in Norfolk. There he taught a very flourishing school. Eleven years later he removed to Hampstead, thence to Stoke- Newington, where he remained until about the time of his death, which occurred Nov. 11, 1808. Mr. Barbauld was liberal in theology, a man of active benevolence, of free and courageous spirit, and possessor of a winning simplicity and natural enthusiasm.
