Sandeman, Robert

Sandeman, Robert, The founder of the Sandemanians (q.v.), was born at Perth, Scotland, in 1718. He studied two years at the University of Edinburgh, and then entered into business. He adopted Mr. Glas's views in opposition to all National Church establishments; and, taking up his residence in Edinburgh, he married one of Mr. Glas's daughters, joined the Glasites, and became an elder in the church that was formed in that city. In 1760 he removed to London, where he preached in various places, attracting much notice. He formed a congregation there in 1762, and in 1764 removed to the American colonies, where he continued till his death. His sympathy with the mother country rendered him obnoxious to the colonists, and his prospects for usefulness were in a great measure blighted. After collecting a few small societies, he died at Danbury, Conn., 1771. He wrote, Letters on Theron and Aspasio (Edinb. 1757, 1803, 2 vols. 12mo): — Correspondence with Mr. Pike: — Thoughts on Christianity: — Sign of the Prophet Jonah: — Honor of Marriage, etc.: — On Solomon's Song.
