About George Newton
George Newton (1602–1681) was an English nonconformist minister and theologian. He was educated at Exeter College, Oxford, where he received his BA (1621) and MA (1624). In 1631 he began his work as a minister at Bishop’s Hull, near Taunton, Somerset. The Act of Uniformity in 1662 deprived Newton of a living, but he continued to preach. As a result, he was imprisoned several years for unlawful preaching.
