Bissill John

Bissill John an English Baptist minister, was born about 1778. He was converted in early life, and in 1798 was a member of the General Baptist Church at Knipton, by which he was called to the ministry. After spending about a year in the Academy under the care of Rev. Dan Taylor, he became pastor of the Church at Leake and Wimeshold in 1800. In 1803 he removed to Sutterton, where a commodious chapel was soon erected and his congregation increased. His ordination took place Oct. 24, 1805, as pastor of the Church at Gosberton, in the neighborhood of Sutterton, a part of its members residing in the latter place. Subsequently a Church was formed at Sutterton, of which he was chosen pastor in 1808, and held the office for thirty years, resigning in 1838. He now took up his residence in Boston, where he died, Jan. 23, 1844. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand-book, 1845, p. 41. (J. C. S.)
