Hanserd Knollys

Hanserd Knollys (1599 - 1691) was an English particular Baptist minister.

In 1620 he was ordained (29 June, deacon; 30 June, priest), and he was presented to the vicarage of Humberston, Lincolnshire, by John Williams, at that time bishop of Lincoln. He preached also every Sunday in the neighbouring churches of Holton-le-Clay and Scartho, but in two or three years resigned his living owing to scruples about ceremonies and admission to the communion, continuing, however, to preach.

He died on 19 September 1691, in his ninety-third year, having outlived his wife and children, and was buried in Bunhill Fields.
