Hanserd Knollys was an influential leader among the 17th century
English Particular Baptists. A former priest in the Church of
England, he came to Baptist convictions in 1643/44 and was
instrumental in the formation of a Baptist church in Great Saint
Helen-street, over which he was ordained the pastor in 1645 and
