Renshaw, Richard

Renshaw, Richard a Presbyterian minister, was born in Manchester, England, April 1, 1776. He received a fair education, which was improved by foreign travels, an account of which was published in Manchester in 1804. He entered the ministry as a Weslevan, and began preaching in 1808 among the New Connection Methodists, but afterwards became an Independent. He emigrated to America in 1856, and in 1858 was admitted as a member of the Iowa Valley Presbytery. His extreme age prevented him from taking a Church, though he was willing to preach whenever opportunity offered. He died Sept. 5, 1859. Mr. Renshaw was a man of great decision of character and of undoubted piety. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1861, p. 163. (J. L. S.)
