Claybrook, Richard

Claybrook, Richard, a Baptist minister, was born in King William County, Va., Oct. 17, 1785. At the age of twenty-five he removed to Middlesex County, and made a profession of his faith in 1814. A few years after, the church which he had joined having lost its pastor, his brethren persuaded him to preach, and he was ordained in 1823. He also had charge of two or three other churches in different localities. He became eminently popular among all classes of hearers, and his ministry was greatly blessed. In 1831 he was called to the pastorate vacated by the death of Rev. Robert B. Semple, in Bruington, King and Queen Co, where he remained a faithful, laborious servant of Christ until his death, Dec. 4,1834. See Lives of Virginia Baptist Ministers, p. 348. (J.C. S.)
