Morell, Samuel an Irish Presbyterian minister, flourished in the second half of the 18th century. He was born about 1744, and was educated at Dublin. He was a young man of rare promise, and was very much liked as a minister. He began preaching when not more than twenty-five years old at Tullylish, in the Synod of Ulster, but during the civil disturbances of 1772 he was persecuted for the part he took in behalf of law and order, and in a riot which occurred on the 6th of March of that year he was shot down in the streets, and died from the effects of the wound.
