Bryce, John

Bryce, John a Baptist minister, was born in Goochland County, Virginia, May 31, 1784, being descended from a Scotch ancestry. He was reared in the Episcopal Church, of which his parents were strict members. His conversion took place at the age of twenty-one, and he joined a Baptist Church. By profession he was a lawyer. Having been ordained about the year 1806, he preached, as he had opportunity, in Richmond and Lynchburg. He was, for a time, master in chancery under judge Marshall. In 1810 he was called to be colleague-minister with the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Richmond, and for nearly twelve years he occupied this position. He afterwards was pastor in Fredericksburg and Alexandria. For a few years he resided in Georgetown, Kentucky, afterwards for ten years (1832-42) in Crawfordsville, Ind., and for a number of years in Shreveport, Louisiana. In all these places he accomplished much for the promotion of the prosperity of his denomination. His last residence was in Henderson, Kentucky, where he died, July 26, 1864.
