Cobbin, Ingram

Cobbin, Ingram an English Congregational minister, was born in London in December 1777. He entered Hoxton College in 1798, and was ordained pastor at South Molton in 1802. His health being very uncertain, he changed location frequently, soon leaving South Moulton for Banbury, and thence removing to Holloway. After preaching awhile at Putney, and then at Crediton, he became assistant secretary to the British and Foreign Bible Society, and two years later attempted the pastorate at Worcester, but broke down in his first sermon. A similar attempt was made subsequently at Lymington, and with a like result. In 1819 he interested himself, with other ministers and gentlemen, in the formation of the Home Missionary Society, and became its first secretary. His health continuing feeble, he relinquished public life in 1828, and died at Camberwell, March 10, 1851. Mr. Cobbin published, among other works, Evangelical Synopsis: Bible Remembrancer: — and various Commentaries. See (Lond.) Cong. Year- book, 1851, page 212.
