Furneaux Philip, Dd

Furneaux Philip, D.D., an English Nonconformist minister, was born at Totness in 1726, and died in 1783. He was first an assistant to a dissenting congregation in Southwark, then lecturer at Salters Hall, and in 1753 succeeded Moses Lowman (q.v.) at Clapbam, in Surrey, where be remained twenty-three years. For the last six years of his life he was totally deranged. He published Sermons (1758-69), and Letters to Justice Blackstone on his Exposition of the Act of Toleration (1793, 8vo), which, it is said, induced that learned commentator to change some of his positions in the subsequent editions of his work. — Rose, New Genesis Biog.
