HINTON, John Howard, author, born in Oxford, England, 23 March, 1791; died in Bristol, England, 11 December, 1873. He first preached in Reading, afterward became pastor of a Baptist church in London, and was distinguished as an independent and original preacher, and a zealous advocate for liberty in religion and politics. Besides several theological works, he published with his brother, Isaac Taylor, " History and Topography of the United States" (Boston, 1834; 2d ed., edited by Reverend John O. Choules, 2 vols., New York, 1853).--His brother, Isaac Taylor, clergyman, born in Oxford, England, 4 July, 1799; died in New Orleans, Louisiana, 28 August, 1847, was educated by his father, who was a teacher in a boys' school. In 1814 he was apprenticed to the " Clarendon Press " as a printer, and in 1820 established himself in business in London on his own account, editing and publishing the "Sun-day School Magazine." He was licensed to preach in 1821, removed to London, and, while continuing his business, became pastor of a Baptist church. While engaged with his brother in preparing "The History and Topography of the United States," he decided to emigrate to the United States, and arrived in Philadelphia in 1822. He accepted a call to the 1st Baptist church of Richmond, Virginia, where his views on slavery made him unpopular, and he therefore resigned and removed to Chicago in 1835, where he supplemented his small salary by teaching. While officiating there as pastor of the 1st Baptist church, he delivered a course of lectures on the prophecies, which excited favorable comment. The slavery question again divided his congregation, and he went to St. Louis in 1841, spent three years there, and in 1844 accepted a call to New Orleans, where he died in the yellow-fever epidemic of 1847. He published "~History of Baptism" (1841), and "Lectures on the Prophecies" (Philadelphia, 1843).
