Blackmore, Thomas W
Blackmore, Thomas W.
an English Baptist minister, was born in Clayhidon, Devonshire, in 1799. After receiving the rudiments of an education, he was sent in his youth as an apprentice to a manufacturer in Bridgewater, Somersetshire. Here he was converted, and began to proclaim the message of salvation to others. He labored efficiently as an evangelist in various sections for some years, and subsequently settled as pastor at Hemyock, East Devon. He soon removed to Upottery, where he remained fourteen years. Failing health compelled him to retire for a time from the active work of the ministry, but he subsequently entered upon the pastoral service at Uffculm and other places. He died March 27, 1879, after fifty-six years in the ministry. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand-book, 1880, p. 290.
