Rev. John Blair1

M, b. circa 1720, d. 8 December 1771
     Occupation: Pastor (Presbyterian.) Rev. John Blair was born circa 1720 at Ireland. He was the son of Samuel Blair and Martha Campbell Lyle. Rev. John Blair married Susan Durburrow. Rev. John Blair lived at Fagg's Manor, Chester Co., PA. He died on 8 December 1771 at Wallkill, Orange (now Ulster Co.), NY.
Note: From Early American Presbyterians:

Brother of Rev. Samuel Blair, born in Ireland and educated at Log College at Nashaminy, and licensed by the New Side Presbytery of New Castle at its earliest sessions. He was ordained December 27th, 1742, pastor of Middle Spring, Rocky Spring, and Big Spring in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, and gave two-thirds of his time to Big Spring, dividing the remaining between the others. During his ministry here he made two visits to Virginia -- the last in 1746 -- preaching with great power in various places, organizing new congregations, and leaving an enduring impression of his piety and eloquence. The incursions of the Indians led him to resign his pastoral charge, December 28th, 1748. He seems to have remained without a settlement till 1757, when he accepted a call from the church at Fagg's Manor, which had become vacant by the death of his brother. Here he continued not only as pastor of the church, but as head of the school which his brother had established. In this latter capacity he assisted in the preparation of many young men for the ministry. In 1767 he was chosen Professor of Divinity and Moral Philosophy in the College of New Jersey, and was elected President before he was thirty years of age. But soon after his election, intelligence was received from Scotland that Dr. Witherspoon, who had previously declined the position, would, in all probability, if the call were repeated, accept it. As soon as this was known to Mr. Blair, with a modesty and magnanimity worthy of record, he immediately wrote to the President of the Board, declining the office, and accepted a call to Wallkill, in the Highlands of New York, May 19th, 1769. He died there December 8th, 1771.


During the excitement growing out of the question concerning the examination of candidates on their experience of saving grace, one of the Old Side published "Thoughts on the Examination and Trials of Candidates." To this pamplet Mr. Blair published "Animadversions," dated "Fagg's Manor, August 27th, 1766." He also published a reply to Harker's "Appeal to the Christian World," entitled "The Synod of New York and Philadelphia Vindicated." He left behind him a treatise on regeneration, orthodox, and ably written; it was published shortly before his death, with the title, "A Treatise on the Nature, Use, and Subjects of the Sacraments, on Regeneration, and on the nature and Use of the Means of Grace." The preface is dated "Goodwill, alias Wallkill, December 21st, 1770." It was reprinted by Dr. James P. Wilson, in his collection of Sacramental Treatises.

Rev. John Durburrow Blair1

M, b. 15 October 1759, d. 10 January 1823
     Rev. John Durburrow Blair was born on 15 October 1759 at Faggs Manor, Chester Co., PA. He was the son of Rev. John Blair and Susan Durburrow. Occupation: Pastor (Presbyterian.)
Note: From The Encyclopedia of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America ...:

He was born at Fagg's Manor, Pennsylvania, October 15th, 1759. He was a son of the Rev. John Blair. He graduated from the College of New Jersey in the year 1775. After his graduation he was appointed, on the recommendation of Dr. Witherspoon, Principal of Washington Henry Academy, in Virginia, where he remained for a number of years. October 28th, 1784, he was licensed to preach by the Presbytery of Hanover. Soon after this he received a call from the Church in Pole Green, in Hanover, of which the Rev. Samuel Davis had been pastor while in Virginia, and having accepted the call, was ordained to the pastoral office. About 1792 he was induced to remove to Richmond, and open a classical school. At the same time he began to gather a church, holding his services in the Capitol. In due course of time a building was erected for his congregation, on Shockoe Hill, where he officiated during the remainder of his life. He died, January 10th, 1823. Mr. Blair was highly esteemed in the community. He was a man of benevolence, of polished manners, and fitted to adorn any company As a preacher he was solid and orthodox. His style was graceful and polished, and his delivery was in perfect keeping with his style. One of his peculiarities was that he was never willing to marry any one who had not been baptized, and sometimes, when he discovered at the moment when the ceremony was about to be performed that the bride had not received baptism, he would abruptly pause and proceed to administer it.

Rev. John Durburrow Blair died on 10 January 1823 at Richmond, VA, at age 63.
