Piggott, John an English Baptist divine, flourished in the second half of the 17th century, and was very popular in his day, especially in his own religious denomination. As a religious instructor, he taught with clearness and argued with strength, exhorted with vehemence and reproved with becoming authority. He published, Account of J. Pilkington's Recantation of Romanisml (Lond. 1669, 4to): — Eight Separate Sermons (1700-1709, all 8vo): — Eleven Sermons (1714, 8vo); with the last is the sermon preached at Piggott's grave by the Reverend J. Stenneth. See Skeats, Hist. of the Free Churches of England, page 261; Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Authors, s.v.
