Miles, Henry, Dd
Miles, Henry, D.D.
an English Presbyterian clergyman, was born in 1699, and entered the ministry in early life. He was the minister of a church at Tooting, Surrey, for many years; a learned and ingenious man of considerable ability, and an eminent Christian. His skill in natural science led to his being elected a fellow of the Royal Society. In 1737 he was chosen assistant minister at the Old Jewry Church, where he preached once on the Lord's Day for seven years, but resigned in 1744, and confined himself to Tooting, where he died, much regretted, February 10, 1763.
