London, Rev. William Huntington, New Providence Chapel
William Huntington,(1745-1813) was an unconventional minister. Born at Four Wents, near Cranbrook, he preached at Ewell, Richmond, Thames Ditton, Cobham, and other parts of Surrey.he styles himself S.S. -"Sinner Saved."
He preached Antinomianistic views and that the 'moral law' was unnecessary. An obituary stated, 'William Huntington S.S., alias Hunt, a man whose name will be remembered while his truly humorous literary productions in prose and verse such as 'The Bank of Faith', 'The Kingdom of Heaven taken by Storm' shall continue to enrich the liberties of the curious, and excite the unqualified admiration of his devotees'. The New Providence Chapel, Gray's Inn Lane was later sold by order of the Court and became first an Episcopal Chapel and then, eventually, St Bartholomew's Church. It was almost entirely destroyed by bombing on 17th October, 1940.
