Weld, Ludovicus a Congregational minister, was born at Braintree, Mass., Sept. 12, 1766, being a son of the Rev. Ezra Weld. He graduated at Harvard College in 1789; taught school in Cambridge; studied theology with his father; and was ordained at Hampton, Conn., in 1799, where he remained until infirmities induced him to seek a dismission (1824). He removed to Fabius, N.Y., where he ministered to vacant churches for several years. In 1842 he purchased a residence near his son Theodore, in Belleville, N.J., where he died, Oct. 9, i844. Mr. Weld's character from early life was manly and upright; his mental abilities were superior, so that he was considered one of the ablest men of his day in that region. Three of his sermons were published. See Cong. Quar. 1860, 1, 181.
