Carver, James an English divine, was born at Wymondham, Norfolk. He was conspicuous in youth for integrity and high moral character, and began his ministry in a rural charge in Norfolk. In 1823 he entered upon the curacy of St. Nicholas, Lynn, and the evening lectureship at St. Margaret's; and in 1828 was appointed chaplain to the debtor's prison for London and Middlesex,- where, with the exception of six years as ordinary at Newgate, he spent the remainder of his life, and died Jan. 12, 1866. Mr. Carver was sympathetic, courteous, wise, and highly esteemed. See Christian Observer, April, 1866, p. 248.
