William Greenhill

1591-1671. English Nonconformist* minister. Matriculating at Oxford when only thirteen, he graduated four years later, and for eighteen years from 1613 held the living of New Shoreham in Sussex. John Howe and others were later to speak highly of his pastoral gifts and dedication. He became afternoon preacher to the congregation ministered to in the morning by Jeremy Burroughes*; they were known as the “Morning Star” and the “Evening Star” of Stepney. As a member of the Westminster Assembly he opposed the Presbyterian party, and in 1644 became the first pastor of a Congregational church in Stepney. His first volume of a commentary on Ezekiel was dedicated to a daughter of Charles I (after the king's execution Greenhill became chaplain to three of his children). He found favor with Cromwell, however, and was made one of the “Triers” for the approbation of public preachers. Ejected in 1660 from his vicarage of St. Dunstan's-in-the-East, he retained the congregational pastorate till his death. The four other volumes of his Ezekiel had been published by 1662, a work described as being full of erudition and practical wisdom.
