Neufville, Edward, D.D.
a Protestant Episcopal minister, was born in Washington, D.C., in 1802. From an early age he was educated by a prominent merchant of Charleston, S.C. For some time he was a member of Columbia College, New York city, but did not graduate. Then he entered the General Theological Seminary. In 1824 he was ordained deacon, and settled in Prince William's Parish, S.C., where he officiated until the winter of 1827, when he was called to the rectorship of Christ Church, Savannah, Ga. He died there, January 1, 1851. His sermons were attractive, without being remarkable for strength. He especially excelled as a reader of the liturgy of his Church. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, 5:661.
