Castleden, Michael an English Congregational minister, was born in London, Feb. 22, 1769. He entered Hoxton Academy in 1792, and was ordained at Aylesbury in the summer of 1797. Discouraged in this field by the prevalence of Antinomianism, he removed to Woburn, Bedfordshire, and there commenced his pastorate, Nov. 5,1800, remaining until 1840, when, because of feebleness, he resigned. An annuity was secured to him through the liberality of his friends, and he continued to preach, when able, until his death, Nov. 5, 1848. See (Lond.) Cong. Yearbook, 1848, p. 215.
