Munton, Anthony an English divine, flourished near the middle of the 18th century as curate of St. Andrew's church, Newcastle. He died in 1755. He was noted in his day as a pulpit orator of great excellence and power. "Some of his sermons," says a contemporary, "would be pronounced truly excellent by every dispassionate judge." A volume of Munton's Sermons was published shortly after his death (Newcastle, 1756, 8vo).
