Cumming, John, D.D., Scottish divine, was born in the parish of Fintray in Aberdeenshire in 1807. and educated at the Aberdeen grammar school and university. In 1832, having been licensed to preach, he came to London and drew together large congregations at the National Scottish church, Crown Court, Covent Garden. He was created a D.D. of Edinburgh in 1844, and thenceforth led an active life, preaching, founding benevolent institutions, and engaging in polemical discussions, both verbally and with his pen. He was an ultra-Protestant, and a strong opponent of the Free Church party in Scotland. His writings on prophecy are the best known of his numerous publications. He died in 1881.
