Blakey, John

Blakey, John an English Baptist minister, was born at Moorhead, near Accrington, Oct. 18, 1784. By the kindness of a Baptist deacon he was taught to read, was led to Christ, and united with the Church May 12, 1805. After being licensed, he preached more or less for twelve or fifteen years, and in 1824 was invited to become minister of the Baptist Church at Inskip. For twelve years he labored most faithfully, preaching on week evenings in the adjacent villages, through a wide circuit. In the spring of 1836 he removed to Harlingden, where he died, March 16, 1856. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand- book, 1857, p. 44. (J. C. S.)
