BRECK, Robert, clergyman, born 25 July, 1713; died in Springfield, Massachusetts, 23 April, 1784. He was graduated at Harvard in 1730, and was minister of Springfield from 26 July, 1736, till his death. His learning was extensive, and his views on the doctrine of the atonement so liberal that a controversy arose over his settlement. A narrative relating to his ordination was published, followed by an "Answer to the Hampshire Narrative," and a "Letter to the Author of the Narrative." He published funeral sermons on the Rev. died Parsons (1781) and the Rev. S. Williams (1782), and a century sermon on the burning of Springfield by the Indians, 16 October, 1675.--His father, the Rev. Robert Breck, who died 6 January, 1731, at the age of forty-eight, was minister of Marlborough, and was a man of great learning. Before his settlement in Marlborough, on 25 October, 1704, he preached on Long Island and asserted the rights of the non-conformists during the administration of Governor Corn-bury with such boldness as to provoke serious threats and ill treatment.
