Davies, John Philip

Davies, John Philip a Welsh Baptist minister, was born at Bangor, Cardiganshire, March 12, 1786, and was the son of Reverend David Davies, a clergyman of the Established Church. In his fifteenth year he began to frequent meetings of Dissenters, and at length, with his father's reluctant consent, joined the Baptists, in his eighteenth year. He became pastor at Holywell, in North Wales, and shortly afterwards of a small congregation of Welsh Baptists in Liverpool, but after a time removed to London; soon returned to Wales and became pastor at Ferryside, Carmarthenshire. After several years he tool up his residence at Tredegar Iron Works, Monmouthshire, where he died, August 23, 1832. See (Lond.) Baptist Magazine, 1836, page 271. (J.C.S.)
