Studdiford, Peter

Studdiford, Peter, a (Dutch) Reformed minister, was born in New York city in 1763, graduated from Columbia College in 1786, and studied theology with Dr. John H. Livingston. He was licensed by the Synod of the Reformed Dutch Church in 1787, and settled that year at Readington, N.J., having Bedminster as an associate Church until 1800, and then ministered at Readington alone until his death, Nov. 30, 1826. In 1812 he was appointed professor of Hebrew by the General Synod. His record is that of a man of large views, much learning, and intense devotion to his ministerial work. He had a great reputation as an extemporaneous preacher, sometimes transcending himself when called upon in an emergency, and always on these occasions speaking with elaborate finish and great force. He was noted as a patriotic citizen, a faithful pastor, and a Christian of deep personal piety and of catholic sentiments. See Corwin, Manual of the Ref. Church p. 229. (W.J.R.T.)
