Neale, Samuel a highly-esteemed Quaker preacher, was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1729. He began preaching at the age of twenty-two years, and travelled in England, Holland, and Germany, everywhere preaching the Gospel of Christ. In 1753 he returned from this journey, and settled within the compass of Edenberry and Rathangan. He died about 1760. See Janney, Hist. of Friends, 3:282.
