Bridge, William a Non-conformist divine, was born in 1600, and educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. After preaching in Essex and Norwich, he was silenced for non-conformity and went to Rotterdam, where he was pastor in Robinson's Congregational church. Returning to England, he obtained a church at Yarmouth in the time of the Long Parliament, hut was ejected in 1662. He died 1670. He was a learned and industrious man: in theology a Calvinist. His Works, consisting chiefly of sermons, were first collected in 1649 (4 vols. 4to), before his death. A new and complete edition has recently appeared (Lend. 1845, 5 vols. 8vo).
