Buzacott, Aaron (2)
Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature
an English Congregational minister, was born at Tahiti, South Sea Islands, Oct. 19, 1827, where his parents tarried for a short time on their voyage to the mission field of Rarotonga. He remained with his parents until his twelfth year, when he was sent for instruction to Sydney, New South Wales. Thence he came to England, and was placed in the mission-school at Walthamstow, where he was converted, and began to labor for the salvations of others. Having chosen the missionary work, he studied with the Rev. W. Legge, of Fakenham, Norfolk; then at Cheshunt College; afterwards at New College. Being impressed that his duty was not in the mission field, he accepted the charge of the Church at Debenham, Norfolk, and then at Fetter-lane, London, each for one year. He was ordained at Long Sutton, Lincolnshire, June 18, 1856, and six years afterwards he removed to Romford, in Essex. In May, 1864, he became pastor of the Pentonville-road chapel; and, in 1868, at Asylum-road, Peckham. He was secretary of the Congregational Union of Surrey for three years, and of the Anti-slavery Society for four years. He died Oct. 9,1881. See (Lond.) Cong. Year-book, 1882, p. 287.
