Barfield, Abraham an English Dissenting minister, was born about 1771, and was educated for the ministry at Homerton. He was ordained first pastor of a Church at Ashwell, Herts, in 1797, and removed to Baker street, Enfield, in June, 1804. He died March 4, 1806. Mr. Barfield was amiable, affectionate, benevolent, and pious. As a preacher, he was truly evangelical in sentiment, "a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly divining the word of truth." His character in all the relations of life was such as to win universal respect. See Theol. and Bibli. Mag., May, 1806, p. 214.
