Browne, George

Browne, George an English Congregational minister, was born at Clapham, February 14, 1790. He received a religious training, joined the Church at Hitchen in 1807, and in 1810 entered Rotherham College. During his college course he preached occasionally for the Congregational pastor at Hull, and at its close became his assistant. In 1818 he was ordained pastor at St. Albans, and after laboring here six years, he preached at Clapham until 1840. In 1833 he was appointed secretary of the Bible Society, and, the society requiring his undivided energies, he complied with its wishes in 1840 by resigning his pastoral charge, and continuing in its employ. In 1853 he removed to Tunbridge Wells. In 1854 he began writing the history of the Bible Society, and completed it in 1857. He resigned his office in 1859, and in 1862 removed to Weston-super-Mare, where he died, September 5 1868. Mr. Browne was remarkable for his gentlemanly and courteous bearing, his amiable and kind disposition, combined with great firmness of purpose. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1869, page 239.
