Valentine, George M
Valentine, George M.
a clergyman of the Church of England, of whose birth or early life no record remains, distinguished himself in the University of Cambridge, and graduated at Trinity College in 1829. He was ordained in the same year to the curacy of Portishead, near Bristol, where he gave himself wholly to pastoral, labors for eight years. In 1837 he offered himself to the missionary committee, and in the following year sailed for Bombay, began the study of the native language, and taught a small English school. In 1839 he was married. He soon entered upon general missionary duties, and thus continued until his last sickness, which in a few weeks terminated in his death, July 23, 1846. See Christian Guardian, 1847, p. 433.
