Knight, James (1), D.D., an English divine, who flourished in the early part of the 18th century, was vicar of St. Sepulchre's, London. Nothing further is known to us of his personal history. He wrote in Defence of the Doctrine of the Trinity two treatises (1714-15), which are highly commended by Dr. Waterland (Moyer's Lectures). Knight also published five separate Sermons (1719- 36), and eight sermons delivered at lady Moyer's Lecture in 1720-21 (1721, 8vo). — Allibone, Dict. of English and American Authors, vol. ii, s.v.
