Hunt, Christopher

Hunt, Christopher a minister of the Reformed (Dutch) Church, was born at Tarrytown, N. Y., near the opening of our century; graduated at Rutgers College in 1827, and at New Brunswick Theological Seminary in 1830. He was settled at Clarkstown, N. Y., 1830-2: at Nassau, N.Y., 1832-7; and at Franklin St., N. York, 1837-9. Bereft of both parents when very young, he made his home an orphan asylum, where Christian kindness and spiritual training were blessed to him. He was an earnest, devoted preacher, a man of comprehensive views, and well qualified by natural endowments, as well as by divine grace, for the large and important charge in which he ended his ministry. His memory is ardently cherished among the churches, which he served. He fell in the prime of life, a victim of pulmonary disease. His last words were, "All is well."-Corwin's Manual of the Reformed Dutch Church, p. 119. (W. J. R. T.) Hunt, Jeremiah, D.D., a learned English dissenter, was born in London June 11. 1678. He studied first in that city under Mr. Thomas Rowe, and afterwards at Edinburgh and Leyden. On his return to England he preached at Tunsted, near Norwich. He received the degree of D.D. from the University of Edinburgh in 1707, and died Sept. 5, 1744. Dr. Lardner preached his funeral sermon, which contained a biographical sketch. Dr. Benson edited Hunt's sermons, which are elaborate and exact compositions, but not interesting. His principal works are An Essay towards explaining the History and Revelations of Scripture in their several Periods, pt. i; to which is added a Dissertation on the 'all of Man (Lond. 1731, 8vo): — Sermons aid Tracts (Lond. 1748, 4 vols. 8 5). — Darling, Cyclopaedia Bibliographica, 1, 1580.
