Dell, William, M.D.
an English Baptist minister, was born about 1600. Soon after graduation from the University of Cambridge, he took orders in the Established Church, and officiated in the parish of Yelden, Bedfordshire. In 1645 he became chaplain in the army, and in 1649 was appointed master of Caius College, Cambridge, but was ejected by the act of uniformity. The precise time of his death we have not been able to ascertain. Dr. Dell-published several sermons and essays, the most important of which were eventually issued as his Select Works (London, 1773, 8vo). See Hayne, Baptist Cyclopaedia, 1: 195. (J.C.S.)
