Baynes, Joseph

Baynes, Joseph, an English minister of the Society of Friends, was born at Kissington, Westmoreland Co., in 1633. He was converted in 1652, through the preaching of George Fox, and united with the Quakers. Some time after this he began to preach, and commended himself to those whom he addressed of like faith, as one who "truly loved and feared the Lord, making it his daily care to keep his conscience void of offence towards God and man." For the non-payment of tithes, and for other reasons, he was despoiled of his goods and frequently imprisoned, all which "he endured with steadfastness and great patience." For many years during the latter part of his life he travelled in England. He took special interest in the spiritual welfare of the young. He died Jan. 26, 1714. See Piety Promoted, 2, 145-147. (J. C. S.)
