Janeway, John a very pious and promising young man, was born at Lilly, Hertfordshire, in 1633, of religious parents, entered Cambridge at seventeen, and at eighteen was converted, in part by means of Baxter's Saint's Rest. He now glowed for the salvation of souls, especially of those nearly related to him; secret prayer became his element. On leaving college, his father being dead. he went to live in the family of Dr. Cox, where his health sank under his studies and labors, and he finished his short course suddenly in June; 1657. His dying bed was a scene of triumph. — Middleton, Works 3:362.
