« Prev Scott, Thomas Next »

Scott, Thomas, an English Presbyterian clergyman, son of Rev. Thomas Scott, an Independent minister, and brother of Elizabeth Scott, also well known as a hymn writer, was born at Norwich in 1705, and succeeded Mr. Baxter as pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Ipswich in 1737. He died in 1775. He was the author of a translation in verse of the book of Job (1771) and of a volume of Lyric Poems (1773). "Doctrinally," says Julian, "Scott may be described as an evangelical Arian."
