Emlyn, Thomas an English Nonconformist theologian, was born May 27, 1663, at Stamford, in Lincolnshire; made chaplain 1683 by the countess of Donegal. In 1691 he became assistant to Mr. Boyce in the congregation of Nonconformists in Wood Street, Dublin. Having imbibed and preached Arian doctrines, he was deprived of his functions, and fined and imprisoned for two years. Restored to liberty, he continued to preach and to write in favor of Arianism until his death, July 30, 1743. His Works were collected and published in London, 1746 (3 volumes, 8vo). Waterland notices Emlyn's writings frequently (see the Index to his works, 6 volumes, 8vo). See also Dorner, Person of Christ (Edinb. transl.), div. 2, volume 3, 357.
