Urwick, William, Dd
Urwick, William, D.D.
an Irish Congregational minister, was born at Shrewsbury, Dec. 8, 1791. He graduated at Hoxton College, and settled at Sligo; became interested in important discussions with the Roman Catholic divines, and by the brilliancy of his arguments and the overpowering force of his mind won for himself a place among the foremost defenders of the Gospel of Christ. In 1826 Dr. Urwick accepted the pastorate of York Street Chapel, Dublin, and during the long period of his public ministry was recognized as an able advocate of the religion of Christ. He was intimately associated with the Irish Evangelical Society, Home Mission, and the Evangelical Alliance. He died July 19, 1868. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1869, p.285.
