Blaikling, John

Blaikling, John a minister of the Society of Friends, was born in Yorkshire, England, in September, 1625. He was "convinced of the truth" in 1652, under the ministry of George Fox, and about the beginning of 1655 "received a dispensation of the Gospel to publish to the world." He exercised his ministry in the counties of Durham, Northumberland, and Yorkshire, and many parts of Scotland. "His ministry was attended with power." Late in life he wrote, in reply to William Rogers's book against Friends, a little volume entitled Anti-christian Treachery Discovered and its Way Blocked Up. He died May 4, 1705.
