Burder, John, Ma
Burder, John, M.A.
an English Congregational minister, brother of the foregoing, was born at Coventry, April 2, 1785. His early education was at Hackney, and his ministerial at Hoxton College and the University of Glasgow. He preached his first sermon at Strond in December of that year, was ordained pastor at that place in 1811, and there labored until 1843, when he retired to Clifton, Bristol, where he died, May 17, 1867. Mr. Burder was an excellent scholar, well-read in general literature and biblical criticism, and was familiar with the Hebrew and Greek text of the Scriptures. His ministry was distinctly evangelical. Conscious sincerity gave him an almost indomitable energy, and he seemed to breathe the same spirit into others. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1868, p. 257.
