Carter, Samuel Henry
Carter, Samuel Henry an English Congregational minister, was born at Midsomer Norton, Somersetshire, in 1812, and early trained in the principles of the Established Church. At the age of sixteen he united with the Wesleyans of his native village, and began active Christian work. In 1837 he went to London where he devoted such time as he could spare from his business to the duties devolving on a local preacher. He was early employed by the London City Missionary Society, and labored in the neighborhood of King's Cross for twenty years. During this period he joined the Congregational Church at Offord Road, Barnsbury. He accepted a call to the pastorate of the Congregational Church at Pembury, Tunbridge Wells, and entered upon his labors there in November, 1860. In 1870 he accepted the pastorate of the Church at Jarvis Brook, Rotherfield, where he remained until his death, Oct. 3, 1880. See (Lond.) Cong. Yearbook, 1881, p. 361.
