Blackwood, Christopher

Blackwood, Christopher an English Baptist minister, was born in 1686. He was a graduate of Cambridge University, and at the beginning of the Parliamentary war the rector of a parish in Kent. A change of views on the proper subjects of baptism led to his leaving the national Church, and for a time he was pastor of a Baptist Church near Stapleshurst, and then, as a chaplain in the army, went to Ireland. Subsequently he was instrumental in forming a-Baptist Church in Dublin, of which he was the pastor for several years. He was regarded as a fine scholar, especially in patristic literature, and was himself the author of several valuable works, which, in their day, were very popular. See Cathcart, Baptist Encyclopaedia, p. 104. (J. C. S.)
