Collyer, William an English Baptist minister, was born at Ivinghoe, Bucks, in 1793. About the year 1814 he gave his heart to God, but was not baptized until August 29, 1822, and was received into the Church October 6, following. In 1824 he began to assist his own pastor in the Ivinghoe Church, and at the death of the latter took the oversight of the flock. About 1831 he was urged to accept ordination as regular pastor, which at first he declined, but on Easter Tuesday, April 1, 1834, he was ordained pastor of the Particular Baptist Church at Ivinghoe. His labors were eminently successful for many years. He died June 9, 1879. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand-book, 1880, page 291.
