Cheatle, George an English Baptist, was born at Castie Donington, Leicestershire. He was converted in early life, baptized in the river Trent, at Sawley, at the age of sixteen, and soon afterwards began to preach. In 1809 he visited Birmingham as a supply to the Lombard Street Church, which was followed by a unanimous call to the pastorate, and he settled there in January, 1810. Fifty years afterwards, in a jubilee pamphlet, he surveyed the great changes which had taken place. He had commenced with seventeen members, had preached seven thousand sermons, baptized seven hundred persons. and drafted from his church as many members as formed a new General Baptist Church in Birmingham. He lived a useful life, and died Feb. 24 ,1870..
