Butterworth, John an English Baptist minister, was born in Lancashire, Dec. 13, 1727. At an early age he was converted under the preaching of John Nelson, the Methodist Evangelist, but he afterward became a Calvinistic Baptist. In 1751 he accepted the call of the Baptist Church in Coventry, and there labored until his death in 1803. He prepared a Concordance to the Bible (8vo), which is cheap and accurate, and has passed through many editions. There is a Memoir of him by his wife.
