8th. November Sunday
Rev. Samuel Angier died 8th November. He was born at Dedham 28th August, 1639, and was a nephew of John Angier, to whom he acted as assistant at Denton. He was ordained at the house of Robert Eaton, in Deansgate, in 1672, at what was probably the first Nonconformist ordination in England. On the death of his uncle, the Warden of Manchester appointed the Rev. John Ogden, but great difficulty was experienced in dispossessing Angier, who retired to Dukinfield, where, in 1689, he became minister of a dissenting congregation, who, in 1708, built a chapel for him. In his latter years he was almost blind. (Dictionary of National Biography, vol. i.)(7)
