Jenkyn, T Wo, Dd
Jenkyn, T. Wo, D.D.
a Welsh Congregational minister, was born in South Wales in 1796. He gave early evidence of earnest piety; began to preach while in his youth, studied at Homerton College, and settled first at Oswestry in 1823. While in that border-town of his native country he published The Extent of the Atonement, by which he acquired both literary and theological celebrity, and which led to his being appointed to the theological chair, eventually to the presidency, of Coward College. Meanwhile he removed to Stafford, and there wrote and published On the Union of the Holy Spirit and the Church in the Conversion of the World. In 1837 he relinquished his charge in Stafford, and, proceeding to Germany, formed friendships with the distinguished theologians of that country. When Coward College was amalgamated with Highbury and Homerton colleges, in 1850, Dr. Jenkyn's services were no longer required. Being anxious to do good, he went to Rochester, to establish a new interest in that town, and after a short visit to America returned and labored there to his dying day, May 26, 1858. Dr. Jenkyn was social in his habits, an impassioned lover of music, and no less enthusiastic in his devotion to theological science. See (Lond.) Cong. Year- book, 1859, page 203.
