Quick, John

Resource Toolbox

an English Presbyterian divine, was born at Plymouth in 1636. Having determined to enter the ministry, he was ordained in 1658. When the Nonconformity bill of 1662 was passed, he joined the conforming party, and was subjected to imprisonment. After his release, he went to London, and became the pastor of a Presbyterian congregation. He also interested himself in the French Protestants, and cared for those of the Huguenots who touched London on their way to a refuge from the intolerant measures of their own countrymen. He even wrote in their defence Synodicon in Gallia Reformata (Lond. 1692, 2 vols. fol.), being a history of the Reformed Church in France; and Icones Sacrae Gallicanoe, a biography of fifty Reformed French preachers, interrupted, however, by the death of Quick, which occurred in 1706. He left in manuscript several sermons and treatises, which all evince a superior mind. See Allibone, Dict. Brit. and Amer. Auth. s.v.; Hook, Ecclesiastes Biog. 8:183.
