Gill, Henry, Dd
Gill, Henry, D.D.
an English Congregational minister, was born at Tiverton, Devonshire, in 1823. He was led to an early decision for Christ; entered Hackney College in 1844, and at the close of his curriculum, in 1848, became pastor at Haverhill, Suffolk. In 1864 he accepted an invitation from the committee of the Bible Society to visit its auxiliaries in North America. This mission occupied him more than eighteen months, in which he proved himself admirably adapted for the work. On his return to England, he was appointed one of the London district secretaries, his chief duties being connected with the Sunday-schools of all denominations in and around the metropolis. He died at Lewisham, November 4, 1870. Dr. Gill was industrious, affectionate, acceptable, and successful in all his labors. In addition to a few tracts and pamphlets, he published, Early at the Temple, and The True and Beautiful. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1871, page 311.
