"Bates on Baxter" by Alan C. Clifford
Born in Bermondsey, Surrey, William Bates (1625-99) was a graduate of Queen’s College, Cambridge and later DD of that university. Vicar first at Tottenham, then of St Dunstan’s-in-the-West, he was one of the leading Presbyterians in London during the Commonwealth period. If ever a minister may be called ‘graciously aristocratic’, it was William Bates. Much loved and respected, he maintained a faithful and spiritual pastoral ministry.
