Stennett, Samuel, Dd

Stennett, Samuel, D.D., an English Baptist minister, son of the preceding, was born at Exeter in 1727. Like his grandfather and father, he early exhibited rare intellectual abilities, making great proficiency in the classic and Oriental languages. Having entered the Christian ministry, he assisted his father for tell years, at whose death he was chosen his successor, and remained in that position until his own death, Aug. 24, 1795. Dr. (Guild, in his Manning and Brown University, says, "Dr. Stennett was regarded as one of the most eminent ministers of his own denomination. His connections, too, With Protestant Dissenters generally, and with members of the Established Church, were large and respectable. One of his constant hearers was John Howard, whom Burke has so highly eulogized. George III, it is said, was on terms of intimacy with him, frequently calling at his house on Muswell Hill." As a scholar and an author Dr. Stennett has no small repute. His works, edited by Rev. William Jones, were published in 1824 in three octavo volumes. (J.C.S.)
