Blunt John Henry
Blunt, John Henry, D.D., born at Chelsea in 1823, was brought up as a wholesale chemist, but in 1850 went to Durham University and was ordained. In 1873 he was appointed to the Crown living of Beverstone, and died in 1884. He was a voluminous and popular writer on ecclesiastical subjects. His best known work is a History of the English Reformation (1868), but his Dictionary of Doctrinal and Historical Theology, Dictionary of Sects and Heresies, and Annotated Book of Common Prayer are exceedingly useful publications.
