Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Janeway (1636-1674) was a Puritan minister and author who, after John Bunyan, had the widest and longest popularity as the author of works read by English-speaking children. Janeway was born at Lilley, in Hertfordshire, the son of William Janeway, a minister of Kershall, at the end of 1636. He was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, graduating with a B.A. and spent time as a private tutor in a home, like many of the Puritans. He is listed as one of the "ejected" or "silenced" ministers by the Act of Uniformity 1662. The first evidence that he functioned as a non-conformist preacher is from the year 1665 at the time of the Great Plague of London. He was then witness to the second great national calamity in the Great Fire of London in 1666. In 1672 his congregation built a large meeting house for him near London at Rotherhithe, where it is said that he had a very numerous auditory, and a great reformation was wrought amongst many.show more
