Camm, Thomas

Camm, Thomas, a minister of the Society of Friends, was born at Camsgill, Westmoreland, England, in 1641. He was converted in early life, and eventually recognised as a minister. He had a large share of the hardships and persecutions of the Quakers which marked the age in which he lived. In 1674 he was imprisoned at Kendal, for nearly three years, for the non-payment of tithes, and subsequently at Appleby for six years. He was also very heavily fined. During these trials he conducted himself with wisdom and patience. He died in the triumphs of Christian faith, Jan. 13, 1708. See Friends' Library, i, 479-481. (J. C. S.)
