Morehead, Robert, D.D.
an English divine of some note, flourished in the first half of this century. But little is known of his personal history. He was for some time rector of St. Paul's in Edinburgh, and there attained to distinction as a pulpit orator. Subsequently he became rector of Easington, Yorkshire, and died in 1840. He was one of the early and most valued contributors to the Edinburgh Review.

Lib. Page 941, the Edinb. Rev., and the British contemporary press generally, in most unqualified terms: —
Explanation of St. Paul's Epistles (1843, fcp. 8vo): — Philosophical Dialogues (1845, 8vo).
