William Tennent (1705 - 1777):
Cleric, Episcopalian


William Tennent was born in County Antrim, the brother of Gilbert Tennent. It is said that as a young man he fell into a trance that lasted for three days during which he was 'cold and stiff as a stake'. He recovered, but could not remember anything, and had to begin the learning process again. In 1733 he was ordained and served as a pastor until his death in New Jersey. [Memoir 1847]
