Thomas Manton

Thomas Manton was an English Puritan clergyman. He was a chaplain to Oliver Cromwell. Thomas Manton was baptised 31 March 1620 at Lydeard St Lawrence, Somerset, a remote southwestern portion of England, his grammar school education was at Blundell's School, in Tiverton, Devon. His formal education came at Wadham College, University of Oxford, he graduated BA in 1639 from Hart Hall. Joseph Hall, bishop of Norwich, ordained him deacon the following year: he never took priest's orders, holding that he was properly ordained to the ministerial office, he was appointed town lecturer of Sowton in Devon, where he served from 1640 to 1643, at Colyton, from 1643 to 1645. In July 1645 he moved from the rural western counties to the London area, as Colonel Alexander Popham, the patron of St. Mary's parish, brought him east to the tiny town of Stoke Newington, in Middlesex county, outside London proper. Here he began his major mid-week lectures, first on Isaiah 53 on James, on Jude. While at Stoke Newington he was invited to preach before Parliament for the first of at least six occasions on 30 June 1647, a fast day for Parliament.

His sermon was entitled, "Meat out of the Eater. One year on 30 June 1648, he preached another fast sermon on Revelation 3:20, "England's Spiritual Languishing, he participated in the Westminster Assembly as one of three clerks, was appointed to write a preface to the second edition of the Westminster Confession in 1658, served Oliver Cromwell as a chaplain and a trier. In 1656 he moved to London as he was appointed as a lecturer at Westminster Abbey and most as rector of St. Paul's, Covent Garden, succeeding Obadiah Sedgwick. During this time Cromwell died and England entered a period of great uncertainty; this led Presbyterians such as Manton to call for the restoration of Charles II in 1660, travelling along with others to Breda, The Netherlands, to negotiate his return. After Charles returned, Manton was part of the negotiations called the Savoy Conference, in which the scruples of the Presbyterians and Congregationalists concerning the Prayer Book were formally discussed, yet since the Cavalier Parliament was filled with Laudians, 1662 saw the enactment of the Act of Uniformity 1662.

All ministers were to be ordained or re-ordained by a bishop, they were to renounce the Solemn League and Covenant, promise loyalty to the Prayer Book, subscribe the Thirty-Nine Articles. Since Manton was on favourable terms with Charles II he was offered the Deanery of Rochester, but he refused on conscience grounds. Manton's last years were tumultuous; the Act of Uniformity led to the "Great Ejection." On 17 August 1662, Manton preached his last sermon at Covent Garden on Hebrews 12:1. He continued to write when imprisoned for refusing to cooperate for six months in 1670 in violation of the Conventicle Act. 1672 saw the Declaration of Indulgence, in which men like Manton were granted a licence to preach at home. Manton became a lecturer at Pinner's Hall for the so-called "morning exercises." Parliament, revoked this Indulgence the year after. Manton would die on 18 October 1677, was survived by his wife and three children. Although Manton is little known now, in his day he was held in as much esteem as men like John Owen.

He was best known for his skilled expository preaching, was a favourite of John Charles Ryle, who championed his republication in the mid-19th century, Charles Spurgeon. Of Manton, Ryle said he was "a man who could neither say, nor do, nor write anything without being observed." Spurgeon said his works contained "a mighty mountain of sound theology" and his sermons were "second to none" to his contemporaries. He went on to say, "Manton is not brilliant, his finest work is his Exposition of James.
