Wales, Eleazer a Presbyterian minister, was born in Massachusetts, and graduated at Yale College in the class of 1727. He was ordained and settled at Allentown, N.J., in 1730. He remained here but a short time, and accepted a call from the Presbyterian Church at Crosswicks. In consequence of inadequate support, he asked leave of the Philadelphia Presbytery to resign, which, on due consideration, was granted. He was called to Millstone, N.J., Sept. 19, 1735, and joined the East Jersey Presbytery, in the bounds of which it lay. He was one of the first members of the New Brunswick Presbytery, and the only New-Englander besides Treat who was excluded by the Protest. Whitefield and Brainerd both speak of him in their journals in favorable terms. He died in 1749.
