Farmer Hugh

Farmer, Hugh, born at Shrewsbury in 1714, attained eminence as a Nonconformist divine, and preached for many years at Salters' Hall, holding a pastorate office at Walthamstow. He wrote several curious treatises on The Nature of Christ's Temptation, On Miracles, and On the Demoniacs of the New Testament, provoking much controversy by adopting a somewhat Rationalistic tone. Retiring from the ministry about 1780, he died in 1787.
