High Church Prophet

Samuel Horseley was born on 15 September 1733. Like the place of his birth, his career presented arresting contrasts. Though he would emerge at the close of the century as the leading High Churchman on the bench, professing a theology that was unfashionable in the England of his age, his background was by no means detached from the central experiences of the national life. His father, the Revd John Horsley, who was lecturer in the parish of St. Martin, had been educated for the Nonconformist ministry at Edinburgh University, whence he graduated on 14 February 1723. His mother Anne, died before her son was 3 years of age.
