Kingsmill, Andrew

Kingsmill, Andrew an English divine, born at Sidmonton, in Hampshire, in 1538, was educated at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and removed thence to a fellowship of All Souls in 1558. In the year 1563 there were only three preachers in the university, of whom Kingsmill was one; but after some time, when conformity was pressed, he withdrew from the kingdom and went to Geneva, but at the end of three years moved to Lausanne, where he died in the year 1570, in the prime of life, "leaving behind him," says Neale (Hist. of the Puritans, i, 116 sq.), "an excellent pattern of piety, devotion, and all manner of virtue." He was an admired preacher, and a scholar of superior attainments. His memory was most remarkable, for it is said that he could readily rehearse, in the Greek language, all St. Paul's epistles to the Romans and Galatians, and other portions of holy Scripture, memoriter. His works are:

1. View of Man's Estate (1574, 8vo):

2. Godly Advice touching Marriage (1580, 8vo):

3. Treatise for such as are troubled in A Mind or Inflicted in Body :

4. A godly Exhortation to bear patiently all Afflictions for the Gospel:

5. Conference between a learned Christian and an afflicted Conscience. (E. de P.)
