Stennett, Joseph, Jun, Dd
Stennett, Joseph, Jun., D.D., a Baptist minister in England, son of the preceding, was born in London Nov. 6, 1692. For some time he was minister of a Baptist Church in Abergavenny, Wales. In 1719 he became pastor of a Church in Exeter, where he remained eighteen years. He then went to London, and was pastor of the Church in Wild Street, Lincoln's Inn Fields, from 1737 to the close of his life. Dr. Stennett seems to have won the regard not only of his own Church, but of some of the cabinet ministers of George II, particularly of Arthur Onslow, Speaker of the House of Commons. He died at Watford Feb. 7, 1758. He published individual Sermons (Lond. 1738-53). See Jones, Christ. Biog. s.v.; Darling, Cyclop. Bibliog. s.v.
