Smith, Jeremiah

Smith, Jeremiah, an English Dissenting minister, was horn about 1653. It is not known where he received his education. He was first pastor of a Church at Andover, in Hampshire, and afterwards succeeded Mr. Spademan, as co- pastor with Mr. Rosewell, in Silver Street, where he was also one of the Friday-evening lecturers. Amid the theological contentions of the year 1719, he stood forward the champion of the Trinity. He continued to preach with great zeal the faith which others were attempting to destroy until the day of his death, Aug. 29, 1723. He was one of four who composed the work entitled The Doctrine of the Trinity Stated and Defended. The Exposition of the Epistles to Titus and Philemon, in the continuation of Henry's Commentary, was by his pen. He published several separate Sermons (1712 and 1713, 8vo): — Four Sermons (1715 and 1716, 8vo): — On the Death of Sir Thomas Abney (1722, 4to). See Bennett, Hist. of Dissenters, 2, 349.
