Bateman, John

Bateman, John an English minister of the Society of Friends, was born at Bunhill, Norfolk, in 1732, and became an experimental Christian when but a child. At the age of twenty-six he removed from Bunhill to Chatteris, in the isle of Ely. . For many years he was an elder in the Society of Friends, and the companion of preachers on their tours among the churches. He became a formally recognised minister late in life; and after he "appeared" as such his labors were confined principally to his own meeting, where he specially directed his attention to those who were favorably inclined towards the Friends as the exponents of spiritual religion. He died March 24, 1816. See Piety Promoted, 4:104-106. (J. C. S.)
