Pike, Samuel an English Dissenting minister, was born at Ramsey, Wiltshire, about 1717. He became minister of a congregation at Henley-on-Thames, and in 1747 succeeded John Hill at the Three Cranes, London. He died in 1773. Pike was quite a voluminous writer.

With a Preface (Lond. 1764, 8vo): — Religious Cases of Conscience answered in an Evangelical Manner, or the Inquiring Christian Instructed; to which are added Replies to Thirty- two Questions, or the Professing Christian Tried at the Bar of God's Word. To which is subjoined the Character of the Happy, Honest, and Faithful Man. By Samuel Pike and Samuel Hayward (new ed. Romsey, 1819, 8vo; last Amer. ed. with an Introd. by Dr. H.A.
