Biography:

Gray was a minister, probably of a Congregational or Presbyterian church, in the small town of Henstridge Marsh, in Somerset, England. He was one of the clergymen Lebeus Driver directed Occom and Whitaker to contact and meet on their fundraising tour of England in 1765, but there is no other information about him. Records for Henstridge mention a Mr. Benjamin Gray in 1776 and in 1802 call him "the younger," but his occupation is listed as "farmer." A Benjamin Gray, esq. (d. 1832), is also listed as a resident of Pond House in Henstridge.
