Bertram, William a Presbyterian minister, presented to the Synod, in 1732, testimonials from the Presbytery of Bangor, Ireland, of his ordination, and, having declared his full assent to the confession and catechism, was received, and joined the Donegal Presbytery. He accepted a call to settle at Paxton and Derry, and was installed Nov. 15, 1732, at Swatara. In 1735 he complained of "the intolerable burden" he was under with the two congregations, and desired to confine himself to one, so in 1736 he was released from Paxton. He died May 3, 1746.
