Birt, Caleb Evans

Birt, Caleb Evans an English Baptist minister, was born at Devonport, March 11, 1795. He entered Cambridge University when he was seventeen years of age, intending to study for the bar. Not long after he became a Christian, and decided to study for the ministry. After preaching for a time as a licentiate, and studying in the Bristol College, in the fall of 1814 he became a student in the University of Edinburgh, and in 1816 took the degree of master of arts. His ordination took place in 1817 as pastor of the Baptist Church in Derby, where he remained until 1827. He then removed to Portsea, and was pastor until 1837, and afterwards went to Broadmead, Bristol, where he remained until 1844. His last pastorate, which was at Wantage, continued ten years, and closed with his death, Dec. 1, 1854. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand-book, 1855, p. 46. (J.C.S.)
