Blomfield, James an English Congregational minister, was born at Norwich in 1786. Of his early history little is known except that he was addicted to close and earnest reading. In 1825 Mr. Blomfield became a student at Cheshunt College. At the expiration of his term he was ordained to the work of itinerancy. He also conducted the business of the Connectional Conference, and edited its magazine, the Evangelical Register. For twenty years he was devoted to the Church at Canterbury, and such was his affection for that ecclesiastical metropolis that he seemed to "take pleasure in her stones, and favor the dust thereof." He died Sept. 21, 1859. See (Lond.) Cong. Year- book, 1860, p. 176.
