Bubier, George Burden
Bubier, George Burden an English Congregational minister, was born at Reading, February 2, 1823. He lost both his parents while still a boy, joined the Church in 1841, and soon after entered Homerton College. In 1844 he was ordained pastor at Orsett, Essex. Between 1846 and 1864 he labored successively at Brixton, Cambridge, and at Hope Chapel, Salford. He then accepted an invitation to the chair of theology and philosophy in Spring Hill College, in conjunction with the pastorate of Acock's Green Congregational Church. Here he died, March 19, 1869. Mr. Bubier's literary powers were of an unusual order, thus ranking him high as an instructor; yet he gloried, above all things, in his office as an ambassador for Christ. For about fifteen years' he had the management of the literary department of the Nonconformist, and in his hands that journal maintained a high reputation as an organ of free and appreciative criticism.
