Capper, Samuel, an English minister of the Society of Friends, was born in 1782, in London. Until his conversion, in his twelfth year, he was a very unpromising child. He became a minister in 1813. He travelled through many parts of the country, holding meetings in the groves and under sheds, that "the poor might receive the Gospel." He died in Bristol, Aug.. 29, 1852. See (Lond.)
