Bennet, R

Bennet, R.

an English Baptist minister, was born in the village of Beaulieu, Hants, in 1790, and was brought up to the trade of a shoemaker. His mind was awakened by the Spirit of God, and he finally met with Isaac Tinsley, through whose efforts he was converted. In 1813 he was baptized and joined the Church in Lymington; and in 1817 was one of twenty persons who were formed into a Church, at what was called Beaulieu Rails. In 1822 a prayer-meeting was started at Exbury, of which Mr. Bennet took the charge. Gradually he began to preach. At length a Church was formed at Blackfield Common, near by, and he was called to be its pastor, which position he held until his death, May 16, 1857. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand- book, 1857, p. 46, 47.
