Beveridge, Thomas a Presbyterian minister, was born at Eastside, parish of Fossoway and shire of Fife, Scotland, in 1749.

In the spring of 1785 he went to New York and organized the Associate Congregation there. He became pastor of the people at Cambridge, Sept. 10, 1789. He engaged in various public labors, and died July 22, 1798. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 3, 31; Miller, Sketches and Sermons (1839).
