Cookson, John

Cookson, John an English Baptist minister, was born in Leeds in 1800. He was converted at the age of thirteen, and early in life became a local preacher. He came to the United States, and prosecuted his theological studies under the Reverend Dr. Sharp of Boston, his maternal uncle. In 1824 he was ordained in Malden, Mass., and subsequently was pastor in South Reading, now Wakefield, and in some other places of the vicinity. In 1862, being somewhat broken in health, he returned to England, and after a time was so far recovered as to be able to take charge of the Church in St. Benedict's Square, London, where he remained till his death in April 1873. See (Lond.) Baptist Hand-book, 1874, page 265. (J.C.S.)
