BAILY, John, clergyman, born near Blackburn, Lancashire, England, 24 February 1644; died in Boston, Massachusetts, 12 December 1697. He began preaching at the age of twenty-two at Chester, but was thrown into jail on account of his congregational doctrines. After his release he went to Ireland and continued his ministry in Limerick, where at the end of fourteen years he was again imprisoned for nonconformity. Set free on the condition of leaving the country, and prohibited even from preaching a farewell discourse to his Church, he came to New England about 1684 and was ordained minister of the Church at Watertown, 6 October 1685. In 1692 he returned to Boston, and in July of the following year became assistant minister of the first Church in that city. A volume, issued in Boston in 1689, contains sketches of a series of his sermons and a reprint of a letter of farewell, addressed to his congregation at Limerick in lieu of a parting sermon.
