Kay, James a Unitarian minister, was born at Heap Fold, in Lancashire, England, June 21, 1777, and was reared in the Church of England. At the age of seventeen, however, he became a dissenter, and at once prepared for the ministry. In 1799 he was settled over a Calvinistic congregation in Kendal, Westmoreland, but he resigned this charge in 1810, and, with about one third of his congregation, joined the Unitarians, and two years later became pastor of a Unitarian church at Hindley, Lancashire. In 1821 he emigrated to this country, but never again took active work. He died Sept. 22,1847, at Trout Run, Pa. "' He fell asleep with the accents of a devout faith on his lips, and, we doubt not, with" the trustful spirit of a disciple in his heart." Christian Examiner, 1848, p. 157.
