Whalley, Richard Chapple, D.D.
a Church of England divine, was born in 1749. He received a superior education; displayed a passionate love for the fine arts in his youth, traveled extensively in Italy; and finally returned home, given much to skepticism. He became converted however, soon after, and took orders. He traveled in Europe in 1786; and on returning, in 1787, was ordained to the ministerial office at Horsington, where he continued to reside and officiate for thirteen years. Through the school of affliction, in the loss of his wife and child, his religious knowledge and character were deepened and perfected. He died Nov. 17,1816. See Christian Guardian, 1847, p. 1,49.
