FROST, Thomas, clergyman, born in Pulham, near Norwich, England, in 1759; died in Charleston, South Carolina, 18 July 1804. He was graduated at Cambridge University in 1780, and was ordained deacon, 11 March 1781, and priest, 6 June 1784, by the bishop of Norwich. Putting aside prospects of advancement in the established Church, Mr. Frost accepted an invitation to labor in the Protestant Episcopal Church in South Carolina. He was elected assistant minister of St. Philip's Church, Charleston, 5 January 1786, and, on the death of the rector, Bishop Robert Smith, in 1801, he was chosen to fill the vacancy. He served for eighteen years, and was noted as being an able preacher and a faithful pastor.
His son, Thomas Downs Frost, born in Charleston, South Carolina, 24 February 1794; died in the West Indies, 16 May 1819, was graduated at Yale in 1813. His theological studies were pursued under Bishop Dehon's direction, and he was ordained, 21 February 1815. He was immediately elected assistant minister of St. Philip's Church, Charleston. In 1817 he was compelled to suspend his labors on account of failing health. He was benefited by a visit to Cuba, and resumed his parochial duties in May 1818; but a renewal of the attack next year proved fatal, and he died suddenly. Mr. Frost was esteemed for many noble qualities, and was regarded as a highly attractive preacher.
